Question about Hampton Bay 52 In. Brushed Nickel Romano with Integrated Pan Style Light Kit Fan

1 Answer

No longer works

Hi: This fan is wired so that a switch operates the light, and the transmitter operates the fan operations. We bought a house with this fan. It worked before. It is no longer working. Turn the switch to turn the light on one day, the lights flashed. Bulbs were ok, breaker ok. Now the light and the fan doesn't work. Checked the transmitter with another model we have in the house...that works when the dip switches are changed. Power is still getting to the fan and light assembly.

    Checked the fuses. Here is a better description, now that I sorta understand what is going on.

    1. There is a remote fan in our den, that is working well. The light operates by a wall switch. The fan operates with remote (note: light doesn't operate by remote). The switch that turns on the fan is a 3 way. The red wire connects to the correct terminal...and then connects to the blue wire that comes out of the receiver in the fan.

    2. In the fan that no longer works: It is also wired the same way, with an exception. The switch that used to operate the light is housed in a bank of 3 switches. #1. switch is 3 way and operates 3 can lights in living room. #2. switch is not 3-way and operates can lights in kitchen. # 3. switch is not 3-way and operates (or used to) the fan light.

    Ok. #3 switch is not 3-way, as I said above. The black wire goes into the black terminal, the red wire goes into the white terminal, and the white wire goes into a bundle of white wires from the other two switches.

    None of this makes sense to me. I am thinking that I need to buy a 3 way switch, wire it the same way that the den fan light is wired. That should make the light work. As far as the remote no longer working the fan....the only thing I can think is that the receiver got fried. The trasmitter works on the den fan, when the dip switches are set right. The den transmitter will not work this fan, when its dip switches are set correctly.

    I feel as if I need pictures to explain this wiring.... Does this give you any clue?

    Fan works with remote but lights don't dim. Wiring is checked as manual says.

First check the fuses,the switches, sometime corrosion can cover the contact and check also the thermal fuse.......

Open Question I have installed a ceiling fan and have run the wires to a wall switch that also has only one black wire and one white wire. How do you wire to a double switch

Trust Me ...I am an electrician. There is no way (legally) to do what you want to do with the wiring that exists. One of two things can happen at this point...1) rewire the switch leg with 3 wire cable (Type NM-B aka Romex with 3 conductors + ground). This involves some skill and maybe some drywall repair. OR 2) buy a remote control for your ceiling fan. They sell them at most home improvement stores, and they install fairly easily in the motor housing of your ceiling fan. The transmitter runs off of batteries, and doesn't require special wiring to operate. Your wall switch will have to remain ON for you to operate, but the remote can handle the rest, like dimming your lights and fan speed control. Good luck!

Where are the numbers on the motor housing hunter Douglas fan to operate remote

Hi there,
I'm not totally sure what you're asking? Do you need the numbers on the fan because of a bad motor, and need information for it? Or, are you looking for information to operate the remote - which is usually found in the owner's manual - which I'm sure you know already. Or, is your remote not working - and you think there's information on the motor to help assist you? Or, are you not sure why your remote isn't working - and think it's the motor? Well, the remote has a transmitter up inside the canopy - next to the ceiling, where the fan is attached too. This is usually the reason why the remote doesn't work - unless you need new batteries. It's always good to put brand new batteries in a remote, because a lot of times - people take from a drawer, cabinet, another appliance, remote, etc...and this doesn't always solve the issue. Without going into the phenomenom of electrical theory, etc. - I'd just try new batteries, if you haven't done so already. Otherwise, you'll need a new transmitter. Now, the way to see if this is the problem - is to turn off the switch (or better yet, the electricity) that operates the fan - and remove the transmitter. Then, reattach the wires directly. You should have one Hot wire (usually colored, but not always the case) - and one Neutral wire (usually the white wire, but not always the case. After you connected the Hot wire to the colored wire of the fixture, and the neutral wire to the white wire of the fixture. Go back and turn your power source back on again. This should allow you to work the fan with the wall switch. If it comes on, then you know you need a new transmitter. Otherwise, there could be an electrical issue up in the ceiling, or somewhere. However, I don't believe you'll have to go that far. Try the new batteries first, then bypassing the transmitter next - and I believe you should have your answer by then. Good Luck, and I hope this will help you...Jim

Bad hunter ceiling fan light pull switch

I don't know what you mean, longer stem/chain housing to hold light fixture. You should be replacing a two wire switch only.

I have a hunter fan which operates using remote contraol part #85095-01. Recently, the remote has stopped operating the fan's light. The fan operates by remote, but I cannot turn the light off.

you need to replace the receiver. I ran across this problem at a customer's house and replaced it. It's located at the top in the canopy where the wires connect at.

My Callaway II ceiling fan transmitter shows that air is being pushed down. However, the ceiling fan is actually pushing air upward. I've tried everything I can think of to get the transmitter and...

If I recall, this fan has no external switches that can be operated - all of the fan and light functions are controlled by the remote alone. If this is indeed the case, there is little that can be done outside of hoping the problem is with the remote itself. If that is the case, replacing the remote is likely to be cheaper and less labor intensive - that is if you can find one.

From what I have read, this fan is no longer in production nor available for purchase. You may have luck bringing the remote to Home Depot - the main (possibly the exclusive) distributor of the Hampton Bay brand to see if they have fans on display that make use of remotes for fan and light control. If so, try to see if all your remote functions work. If you find that the reverse function no longer works - you should ask the sales associate about how to go about ordering a replacement remote. If the remote fails to work at all, you can 1) try a "shot in the dark" about ordering a an exact replacement remote - with the hopes that the remote itself is defective - rather than the paddle fan, or 2) start new by buying a new paddle fan with hardware switches for fan speed, direction and light operation AND a remote control module to perform a whole replacement of your existing paddle fan.

The "add on" remote control gives you many of the benefits of the remote only fan - but also provides a "back up" way to operate the fan should the remote or module fail. Had this been the style you have currently, you could operate the fan by hand until the remote and / or ceiling module was replaced.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.

Hi, my name is Shaun. Welcome to FixYa. I have been an electrician for 6 years, and I have to say that your troubleshooting skills are impressive. Looks like you have covered all the bases. So, to answwer your question, the problem is most likely, yes, your reciever in the fan, unless the transmitter has been dropped or damaged in some way. Recievers rely on transitors to close the higher voltage circuits to turn on the lights and fan, and these tend to burn out occasionally. I believe you can buy wireless kits from Home Depot or Lowes that include both transmitter and reciever. In the meantime, you can rewire your fan and light to operate from the switch if you have pullchains or seperate switches for light/fan. If you do and you would like me to walk you through this process, reply to this answer. Hope this helps out. Have a good one!

I assume that you're talking about a remote-controlled ceiling fan.

There are two parts to a remote-control setup -- the transmitter (the switch which you use to operate the fan and/or light), and the receiver (which receives the signals sent by the transmitter, and directly controls the fan and/or light).

The receiver -- which should look like a plastic rectangle, usually white, grey, or orange-brown in color -- can be identified by the fact that it has several colored wires coming out of it, and doesn't have any buttons. This is mounted in the ceiling fan itself. On nearly all setups, it goes inside the canopy (the decorative part of the ceiling fan, up by the ceiling, which hides the fan's electrical wires).

The transmitter may be either hand-held like a television remote control, or in-wall mounted like a light switch. If you have the hand-held variety, there is nothing to install in a wall box. The wall-box wires should be appropriately connected up, and a blank cover plate should be put on top of the gang box.

If, on the other hand, you have the in-wall variety of transmitter, then yes -- it gets mounted in the wall, in a gang box, like a normal light switch or outlet.

If you need any further clarification, please feel free to ask!

Dip switch settings

I've had the same problem w/ light turning on/off. Called customer support and 3x waited 6 minutes to leave message and get no call back. Finally got a human and she told me to change code in receiver and transmitter. This was no easy task as the fan is very high up and the stupid thing needs to come down to adjust the receiver. Changed the setting and it worked for two days until it started back with the lights turning on at all hours. I noticed there's a toggle switch in the remote that is not explained in the manual. It says CFL on one side and INC on the other. The light will NOT dim if it's in CFL and tonight is the first time I've switched it to that setting. I'm hoping this is some kind of lockout for random signals going out of the remote...It would be nice to have a proper explanation in the manual. I should have gone with another Casablanca fan--Hunter products are lame.
