Your issue is most likely a faulty speed control, which presumably was destroyed by a power surge. The part is integral to the remote receiver in the fan housing. You can purchase spare parts for this fan through Home Depot (Hampton Bay) Service at 800-654-0688.

The fan unit itself is manufactured by AirCool 800-896-4908

Unfortunately the Brookdale fans with a Rhine 7058 series controller have a separate circuit wire for each speed. Rewiring this to use a conventional fan receiver that uses a single wire to control each speed is not easily achieved. Your best bet is to order a new remote receiver of the proper type.

Do not have a remote


If this is a Hampton Bay fan, you probably can buy a suitable remote from a Hampton Bay dealer...BUT before rushing out to buy a remote, it would be a good idea to find out whether the reason this fan turned up at a yard sale is not that the remote receiver failed

Your issue is most likely a faulty speed control. The part is integral to the remote receiver in the fan housing. You can purchase spare parts for this fan through Home Depot (Hampton Bay) Service at 800-654-0688.

The receiver is located in the upper portion of the housing for the fan motor. Look for a semi-circular black control box (usually manufactured by Rhine)

Nothing works.


Remote receiver got fried by the voltage spike. If you have pull chain controls as well, you can remove the receiver and possibly be able to save the fan, but the capacitors, may have also been fried. If the capacitors are fried, then most likely the motor experienced some seriously high voltage too, which would mean I would replace the fan. I assume you have had the house's wiring inspected? If lightning struck the house and killed the fan, then it likely ALSO damaged other electrical components. If the lightning struck your power transformer and not your home directly, you may can get the power company to pay for this ceiling fan as the transformer is supposed to have a lightning arrester on it.

Hampton Bay 60" Brookedale fan remote not working


The Remote (TRANSMITTER) control AND the RECEIVER must both be set to the same CODE in order for the REMOTE to operate the fan.
!!WARNING!! YOU ARE ABOUT TO ENTER HIGH VOLTAGE ELECTRICITY ZONE!!
The RECEIVER is located in the CANOPY, the part of the fan assembly next to the ceiling which is also called the Hanger Bracket.
At the bottom of the Canopy you will see what looks like a large flat washer. Rotate the washer counter-clock wise to release it.
Then rotate the Canopy counter-clock wise to release and lower it. You will see the RECEIVER, which will have a short antenna at one end, tucked in among the electrical wire and bracket. Simply pull the RECEIVER out and you will see the CODE switches. Remember to set both devices to the same CODE.
Good luck. :)
