Question about Hampton Bay (261025) Dual Mount Ceiling Fan
I bought my house several years ago and there is no instruction book for my Hamptom Bay fan. The light comes on at the switch, but everything else operates from the remote. I have a new battery in it and the light comes on in the remote when I try to change the fan speed or dim the lights, but nothing happens.
The only model # I can find is on the remote. Model: FAN-HD FCC ID: L3HMAY97FANHD
Do you have any solutions or is there a instruction manual I can get for this. It is a good fan and I hate to replace it. Thanks.
Remote can't communicate with Ceiling Fan/Light combination
This is a known problem with the remote receiver in these fan units. There is a TRIAC that controls the dimmer function (part BTA08-600C) and is attached to the metal bracket sticking out of the yellow plastic receiver housing. When this fails, the light is on all the time. You can buy the replacement part from Newark electric (www.newark.com) for 83 cents. If you aren't good with a pencil soldering iron, get someone to replace it for you. Takes about 30 minutes.

Your problem is either the remote control transmitter and/or the receiver (located in or above the fan in the canopy). matching the dip switch settings is the most important step.
To do this you must first find the dip switch settings on the receiver.
there are two types of receivers, 1 an Optional remote (when the fan has pull chains and the forward and reverse switch is located on the fan or 2 an integrated remote the fan has no pull chains (remote only).
if it is an optional remote the fix is easy and cheap. for $30-$40 you can buy a remote control transmitter w/receiver at any Home depot or Lowe's.
if it is an integrated remote you will have to go to the manufacturer of the fan to purchase these parts.
again matching the dip switch setting is the most important thing to do.

The Model number of the fan is on the top of the motor cover on the fan itself - should begin with a 5XX XXXX. The FAN-HD control has internal settings controlling the frequency of the remote and it must match the reciever in the fan under the housing on the ceiling. You might check that.

We had the same issue and found that we had 2 problems. First was the battery was dead (no Light on remote). Once we replaced the battery (light on) but still nothing worked from remote. It turned out the second problem occurred when replacing battery we "pushed" a dip switch once it was switched back all working!! Thanks to the other comments posted and reading them lead me to the dip switches. Really appreciate that thanks to all!!

Remote stopped after being dropped. Solder was loose where battery wires connect to circuit board inside. Simple fix.
Remove battery. Remove screw on back under cover. Remote comes apart by snap on top and two on sides left/right edges near where battery goes in. Unscrew 3 screws from circuit board to pull board off. The solder was loose where battery wires connect to circuit board. Heat solder up with soldering iron on circuit board till it melts and wiggle wire connection to make sure its making a connection. Let solder cool and harden. Connect battery and test remote with the rubber buttons. If now working clean remote case and rubber buttons with windex while apart to get any crude out of the buttons and seams. Put remote back together. Good as new and you saved $10 - $30 for a replacement.

My ceiling fan light would no longer work with the remote, fan functions were working properly but the light was on all the time. The only way to turn off the light was from the manual pull switch, very inconvenient. Solution #3 by croberts02 solved my problem. I already came to the conclusion that the TRIAC was defective and during my search to find a replacement part I came across this post and confirmed my findings. Thanks for the post...defective transistor part # BTA08-400C or BTA08-600C either will work!

You should be able to buy a remote and or receiver on ebay. I'm having the same problem it's the receiver.

If you take the back battery cover off there is a label on the inside with instructions for setting the dip switches to match your fan remote. Hopefully that's all you need.
I'm actually trying to find a second remote, the place I bought has a light/fan that only works with the remote at the top of the stairs and I'd like a remote for upstairs and one for downstairs. Anyone know where I can buy a second FAN-HD remote?
