Question about Hampton Bay 54 In. 5-Blade Fan, Chestnut, Autumn Mist

Open Question

My ceiling fan turns very slowly.

On its own, the fan went into reverse, turning slowly. Now it will work in both directions, but only at a very slow speed. At its highest speed, it MIGHT be turning at what used to be low speed. At low speed, it now takes over 3 seconds to make a revolution. The light works normally. Model AC5540D. Home Depot SKU 420396. Date 1005. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: Ceiling fan does not reverse with remote

Just reporting that I called Hampton Bay about the remote not working to reverse the fan. I was told that I needed to have the fan running on low and then press reverse on the remote control. If that doesn't work, customer service told me to press reverse while running the fan on medium. (Some fans are set to reverse on low and others on medium.) Nowhere in the manual is this addressed. I had been pressing reverse with the fan turned off, which seemed to me a logical thing to do. Live and learn.

SOURCE: New Hampton Bay ceiling fans spin too slow

Slow spinning of the fan might be caused by a low voltage. Is there any way you can measure the voltage, and if the wires are properly connected, check for any loose wiring or rust in between connections. Maybe the breaker that supplies power to the fans has a loose connections inside, try putting a new breaker of same rated current. Check if those three fans are connected to the same breaker. Breaker can go bad from the inside not doing a proper connection and supplying a low voltage, this might be causing the slow spinning of the fan. Second the black box in the space with all the wires is called the capacitor.

Why does my ceiling fan 897 only spin slowly


If it has chain controls, one changes the direction, Clockwise, Counter clockwise. The other one alters the speed in 4 pulls, from OFF, SLOW SPEED, MEDIUM SPEED, FAST SPEED, and back to OFF. If there are three chains, the third turns the light on an off.

Check your capacitor. If this is an add on remote, set the fan on high with the remote then pull the chain on the fan until you get high speed.

Signs of a bad capacitor in a ceiling fan include:

  • Fan runs slowly or not at all on all speeds
  • Fan will not start but will spin if started by hand
  • Certain speeds are slow or do not work
  • The motor hums and turns freely by hand but will not spin

    The capacitor is usually a black box inside the switch housing of the fan. If this box appears burnt or melted in any way, that is also the sign of a bad capacitor and it should be replaced.

    After researching the complaints on this product I found that the reverse mode can be intermittent, the high speed can be slow at best and the returns of this product back to the store are staggering. Get a new but different model.

    I have a Casablanca Intelli touch ceiling fan. The remote is a simple toggle switch, turn in on, listen to the beeps, off an on quickly to set it. How do I reverse direction on this fan?


    My fan operates the same way. To reverse it, turn it on a low speed. Then, turn it off and on, then off and on again, quickly. You should hear a series of beeps, and the blades will slow down and then reverse. You may have to play a bit with the timing of the off/on/off/on sequence to get it right but you should be able to get it fairly easily.

    Fan won't reverse to counter clockwise


    I had a hampton bay fan that absolutely did not have a revers switch on the fan anywhere! MOST fans bought today will reverse. I was not about to give up. I scoured the net for an answer and could not find anything to help. I did however find a comment somewhere that said it could be done internally. After about six months I decided to search again (now). Nothing... so I started playing with the remote and the wall switch and Shazaam! I figured it out on my hampton bay fan. Turn the fan on high... Turn the wall switch off.... wait until the fan is pretty slow in rotation... hold the HI button on the remote.... Turn the switch back on. IT Worked for me! Hope this helps someone. SparqMark

    Hunter ceiling fan-just installed -possible speed control problem


    Sounds like the fan is defective. All internal wiring from the switch to the motor is factory installed. The fan has power going to it. Just to make sure, double check the wiring from the ceiling fixture to the fan.
    Problem could be a faulty switch on the fan or faulty motor(bad winding for med. speed). Try reverse switch on the fan to operate the opposite direction and see if medium speed works. If medium does work in opposite direction, it pretty much points to a defective fan. In any case, unless you discover that the ceiling wires were reversed going into the fan, I'd say new fan to the returns dept.
