I have very nice a Hampton Bay ceiling Fan which me and my wife love it. It has three different speed, LO, MED and HI. The LO speed has approximately 84 RPM and we will really love to be 8-12 RPM on LO speed. Is this possible or impossible? The numbers 8-12 RPM it dos not to be so perfect, just the idea for much more low speed. Thank you for your answer.

Re: HI speed on my Hampton Bay ceiling Fan.
If you are looking to lower your fan speed, I suggest getting an adjustable wall switch that will limit the current to the settings. I have the same situation, I myself didn't do it but I know it is possible. In my bedroom, I have my ceiling fan wired to a turn knob switch, a dimmer so to speak, that limits the elctrical current, thus slowing the rpm's of the fan blades.

If it's when you set the remote on med or high, check to make sure the switch on the fan isn't set on low. Turn the remote to high and pull the chain switch to see if it goes faster. Someone may have tried to turn it on or off with the chain, forgetting about the remote. Good luck.
I just found this on another site. The answerer there said he hit "med-hi-med-hi" on the remote. I tried that, nothing seemed to work. I was impatient and frustrated and I did that a bunch of times, then tried "lo-hi-lo-hi" a few times. Anyway, I finally gave up and it worked! So it was one of the combos of 2 speeds that worked. It's great!
Hampton Bay also offer a Lifetime warranty.You can go to any Home Depot also and ask for a wiring manual and they will give to you since the product still under the warranty .Pls don`t forget to rate your experience...
in your ceiling box should be three wires. a red goes to the three way switches, a black goes to the hot and the white is the neutral. the fan wires are black, blue and white. since you have a remote, connect the [fan] blue & black together with the [line] black. connect all white wires together. the remote will now ramp up your lights from off to full on and the fan remote will let you choose lo med high and off. just tape up the red wire in the box.
I recently replaced my hampton bay fan for the same reason (slow at all speeds) and discovered scorched and melted capacitors and wiring inside the fan. My suggestion is to stop using fan and replace immediately.
