Hi there,  First of all, can you tell if there's power going to the light? Lets first make sure that it's not a power problem. You can check your circuit breaker in your main electrical panel. Now, when checking this - leave your light switch in the ON position. So when you're checking the circuit breakers, you can see from afar if the light/fan comes on. Now, you can also have a light switch problem too. Turn the switch on and off; and wiggle the toggle (lever) on the switch to make sure its tight. Next, get up on a ladder and make sure that your switches on the light itself are on the ON position. It most likely is, but you're just ruling things out. So, if you think there's power getting to the light - then turn the wall switch OFF. You can also turn off the circuit breaker as added protection. You would then need to take off the bottom of the light/fan to get to the wiring connections. If you have a little inductance tester, which when you put it up against the wires - a light, a beep, or both come on to let you know there's power. These little testers are invaluable. There very inexpensive, and they can save you plenty of headaches. If you can buy or borrow one, you would open the bottom of the light/fan - and make sure all your connections are tight and secure. I come across a lot of shabby splices were the wires aren't all the way in (secure) when its installed, and eventually with the vibration of the fan motor - the wires will work themselves loose. After checking the connections, clear yourself from the light/fan and turn the wall switch ON. Then go back up the ladder and wave your tester up against the wires to see if you have any power at the light. If you do, then you most likely have a switching problem at the light/fan.  To confirm this, you would turn OFF the wall switch again. Go back up the ladder and wave your tester to double check that there's NO power. Your next step would be to bypass the switch on the light/fan. You can do this by removing the switch and splicing (joining) the two wires together...or, you can locate each (only two) wire coming from the switch - and then splice (join) these two wires together. Now that you've bypassed this light/fan switch - get down from the ladder and turn ON the wall switch. If this is the problem, then the light/fan should work ALL together when your wall switch is in the ON position. If it works, then you'll have take that switch with you to your local Home Depot, Lowes, or hardware store to get this part. Its easier to take the switch with you and show the clerk at the store the part you need. They are common parts, so you should have no problem. Lets stop here for now. I believe you should find the problem by now. If not, please contact me again - and let me know what you have done, and what everything you did resulted in. I don't believe you'll go this far, but if so - then we'll proceed from there. Good Luck, and remember to turn the power OFF when you're working on the light/fan - and make sure your connections are secure when rewiring your connections back up. And then put everything back in order of how you took them off. I hope this works for you! Jim

    Hi there Derrick,
    I seen you gave me a 2-thumb rating. So this tells me that you either need more clarification, or the problem is too complicated. Which is totally understandable and acceptable!  I've been an electrician for over 27 yrs., and troubleshooting is one of my favorite things to do. However, a lot of times its like looking for a needle in a haystack. So knowing my job as well as I do, explaining it IS sometimes even more difficult. There's a lot of thought and detail involved. So when I write to explain how and what to look for. I myself after reading what I write, wonder if I would be able to follow this. I find what's easiest, is to read it first. Then go back over it again with a highlight pen to bring it out in a step-to-step form. Or, just write the steps down on a separate piece of paper after highlighting it. Whatever way works, but I can relate if this got a little difficult. If you got your fan working, then great! If not, feel free to contact me for further assistance. I hope this helped a bit. Good Luck! - JR

I have a harbor breeze ceiling fan on a dimmer

You have 3 options. You can connect the fan blue and the fan black to the red ceiling wire. Then you will need to control the fan and light with the strings. The wall switch will turn off everything. Option 2 is make sure that there is a switch wired to the black ceiling wire. If there is a switch I would check to make sure the switch is working. Option 3 is to purchase a remote control unit for both and leave the wall switch to shutoff the whole unit. Hope this helps.

Monte Carlo ceiling fan and light not working

Even a brief power outage can cause amnesia in the receiver. You can try disconnecting power at the source and spending a few minutes removing the battery from the wall-mounted remote and pressing all buttons to eliminate the 'stuck button' problem. Reinstall the remote battery and reconnect main power to the unit. Test operation.
Lastly, there always is the possibility that some gremlin changed your original control setup.

It's most likely the receiver for the remote (transmitter) -- it's located under the cover at the top of the fan -- will need replacing.

Fan is Erratic

Ceiling fans with wireless remote controls have an electronic receiver installed in the fan, which controls the light, dimming, and fan speed. Sometimes the receiver goes bad and needs to be replaced. If you have had any power outages or power surges, they may have fried the receiver. I've noticed that my ceiling fan light turns on when the power is restored after a power outage. Now, whenever my power goes out, I shut off the light switch that powers my ceiling fan so It doesn't experience a surge to to the controller when the power comes back on. I've purchased new receivers on eBay and Amazon to replace my blown remotes and receivers.
