SOURCE: Hampton bay ceiling fan with built-in remote receiver

No fan disassembly, just the houseing mounted to the ceiling. the transmitter is in there. U can try and match it to a new remote or look for some number on the transmitter. However u can usually buy a new remote and transmitter for 30 bucks and just swap out the transmitter. They come labeled and r pretty easy to install.

SOURCE: Ceiling fan remote not working

It is certainly possible that the remote went bad -- after all, it is an electronic device, and is was "made in China". With that said, there are other possibilities:

* The receiver, which is what receives the signals sent by the remote control, could have died. In most remote-controlled fans, the receiver is located in the ceiling canopy (the decorative part up by the ceiling, which hides the wires). In other fans, it's located in the switch housing (the part of the fan to which the light kit attaches). Solution: try everything else on this list; if nothing works, replace the receiver. Universal replacements for most models are available at Home Depot and Lowes.

* A wire on that receiver could have come loose. Solution: check all wires for secureness.

* A wire in your wall or ceiling -- the wire which provides power to the fan -- could have come loose or been chewed through by a rodent. Solution: use a circuit tester to check whether there's power at the connections at the top of the fan, in the ceiling, where the fan connects to the building's wiring.

* A circuit breaker could have tripped or a fuse could have blown. Solution: check your circuit breaker or fuse panel.

* The DIP switches inside the remote control -- which set the frequency on which the control transmits -- could have been knocked out of position accidentally or by a child playing with it. Solution: check the code on the DIP switches on the receiver in the fan -- then, make sure the remote control has its DIP switches set the exact same way.

If none of the above work, then yes -- the problem is with the receiver or the transmitter (remote). The two are typically sold as a pair, and universal replacements are available at Home Depot and Lowe's.

Hope that helps! Feel free to ask for clarification if you need it!

SOURCE: Redington IV Hampton Bay Ceiling fan lights don't work and we don't know where the receiver goes.

I have the same fan. You have wired it wrong. The receiver goes under the collar cover. It is a tight fit but it is the quietest fan I have.

SOURCE: Minka Aire remote controlled ceiling fan

I have the same problem, except I live in a multi unit condo where many of the occupants own the same fan! You can imagine how  frustrating this is when your fan or light comes on or you can't  agree on a fan speed. Anyway, I spoke to a MinkaAire customer service guy and he tells me that the switches in the receiver are located under the mounting ring. You need to unscrew the ring and it should be located in there. I haven't tried this myself as my fan has a mind of its own as I type and everytime I turn it off to unscrew the mounting ring, the damn thing turns on again.

SOURCE: The Hampton Bay Altura Ceiling fan functions only with remote.

You can hard wire this fan to 1 or 2 switches, bypassing the remote unit entirely. NOTE: You will only have 1 fan speed and no light dimmer. Set the fan at the desired speed and direction using the remote system PRIOR to hardwiring. The fan will remember the speed and direction.

Connect your house wiring directly to black and white (and blue if lighting is required) wires. With a 2 switch system, your third house wire should be red. Connect the blue fan wire to the red house wire.

Your 2 switches will now separately operate the fan and light functions. As stated earlier, you will only have 1 fan speed and will be unable to change the direction, so set your desired speed and direction before you rewire.

Hope this help!

I need to replace the remote, uc 7067rya


You should be able to get a universal remote for a ceiling fan at home depot or lowes. Be aware they only sell then WITH the remote and the receiver unit as a package. Be aware, you'll need to check the 4 "dip pin" positions on the receiver unit on the fan itself to program the new remote. Yes, you'll have a spare receiver left in the package unless you choose to install the new one. You may have to remove the fan to do this, as they're usually found in the canopy (where the fan hangs from the box in the ceiling.) Often, the dip switches are just left all "up," however, they could easily have been changed. Some fans are programmable now, and you can test the code without having to check the receiver in the fan (similar to an older TV remote.) If you're using this for a TV, Satellite dish, etc, you'll need to find a compatible one online (not necessarily that model, it's "UNIVERSAL" and follow the instructions that come with it. TV and Ceiling fan remotes operate totally differntly, so if you have a remote that does both tasks, it's fairly new technology, and you'll have to follow instructions for the one you purchase.

Need code for Concord ceiling fans


You have this backwards. The code is stored in the remote. The receiver is located inside the fan housing. You can try removing batteries from the remote, pressing all buttons to eliminate the possibility of a stuck one, reinstalling batteries (or installing new ones) and testing operation. If no results, disconnect power at the ceiling fan source, not the fan itself. Pause briefly, reconnect power and test operation.

Kichler ferron 60" why ceiling fan will only move very slowly remote does not appear to be working


If your Kichler ceiling fan appears to have lost touch with the remote, try the usual routine of removing batteries from the remote, pressing all buttons to eliminate a stuck button as the cause, then reinstalling the old batteries (or new batteries) and testing operation. If no luck, disconnect power at the source, not the fan, pause briefly (to "reset" the fan control) and reconnect power to test operation. If still no luck, the remote receiver in the fan or the remote itself may be defective.

Need to program Hampton Bay Ceiling fan remote control CHO88T7030T, HELP!


Change the battery. This is the first step when troubleshooting a ceiling fan remote. The easiest fix to any remote control problem begins with battery replacement. A 9-volt battery is needed to operate all Hampton Bay ceiling fan remotes.

Check the light switch used for the ceiling fan. The light switch found on the wall must be in the "on" position. This allows the ceiling fan to be operated by remote control

Re-program your remote. If battery replacement fails to get your remote working again, try to reprogram the remote. Open the battery cover you will see 4 dip switches. These switches must be set to the same position as the receiver on the fan. Use the screw driver to move the dip switches either up or down.

Follow the previous step to change the frequency if the ceiling fan is randomly turning on or off. Other electronic devices such as garage door openers can interfere with the ceiling fans receiver, causing it to randomly turn on or off.

Ceiling fan is all wired up and on ceiling but light doesn't come on or fan doesn't spin. I have checked connections and tested for power. Is there a switch or anything on receiver that needs to be...


Jerry, from what you said, I assume you have a remote controlled ceiling fan. If that's the case, check the batteries in the hand held and the receiver, to make sure they are charged. Also, make sure they are installed properly. The Owner's Manual should have a reference to setting or resetting the codes for the remote control (Hand Held & the Receiver). Check those to make sure they are matching. And don't forget, the wall switch must remain ON for the fan to work, even with the remote control. The remote simply overrides the wall switch, when in operation. You may have to use the pull chain to start the fan motor the first time, then the remote can take over from there.

Good luck. I hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Light remote control stopped working


most of my fan controls have done this to me. you know the reciever is working cuz the fan works fine. you need to dis assemble the remote completely and clean the contacts for the light button. mine are two small black dots that seem to keep getting slimey and wont work till i clean them, then all works like brand new again.

good luck.

Hunter ceiling fan remote problem


You will most likely need to replace the receiver with a new one from hunter. The receiver is actually a complete controller and contains the receiver, relays (which you hear clicking) and starting condensors(large capacitors which hold a charge that is "dumped" over the windings to get the motor to start from a dead stop). These appear to be pretty tightly assembled unless you have a desire to start replacing parts "off the board."

Light and fan won't come on. Remote control is working light switch tested and light test came on for fan, but not for light when chain was pulled.


This sounds like one of the most common problems with Hampton Bay's remote-contolled fans...either the transmitter (remote control) or the receiver (mounted in the fan, typically inside the ceiling canopy) has gone haywire. A circuit has blown or something is short-circuited, and it has a mind of it's own. Some things work, others don't, and others only intermittently. The only fix is to replace the receiver and transmitter, which are relatively cheap and sold as a pair at your local Home Depot and Lowes.

Hope that helps! If you ave any other questions, feel free to ask!
