Question about Hampton Bay (261025) Dual Mount Ceiling Fan

Remote to fan won't work

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.

Alan,
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.

Posted on May 06, 2008

Al,
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?

Remote control ceiling fan keeps coming on without our request


Check for a remote control problem by removing the battery, pushing all buttons, and reinstalling the battery. Also, turn off the power to the ceiling fan at the source, not at the fan. Wait for one minute and turn on the power again. If the problem persists, contact Hamptom Bay directly for resolution.

I am renting a house with Hampton Bay fans with light kits and a remote. I have turned on wall switch which turns on both light & fan. I have put in new battery but can't change the speed of the fan...


Have you checked the antenna on the fan itself, assuming there is one? It is usually a wire that comes out of the bell housing where the fan attaches to the ceiling, just a single wire. I would make sure it is there and not shorted to the bell housing in any way. After that, I would go to the mfgrs website and look up the model number to see if they post any instructions. Simple solutions first.

I bought a Hampton Bay ceiling fan and I have


Hi ,, the usual wiring for the fan / light is that in the ceiling the white wires connect together , the black house wire connects to the black fan wire, the red house wire connects to the other fan wire, usually blue or black with a blue stripe. If this does not resolve the issue, then check the wall switches and see that there is a power wire to each switch and that there is a red wire from the fan on one switch and the black wire from the fan on the other switch ..

make sure you get 230 volts at light connection or 115 if your in america. if yes check internal wiring. if all connections look good go to switch on wall where its switched on. check is there power on common side of switch. if yes then switch it on and check is there power on load side of switch. (L1). if no then switch is broke. replace switch.

Hampton bay fan with remot problem


You can try the universal receiver. The white, black, and green wires are the house wires. The receiver must match to these on one side. The wires on the other side go to the fan/lights. It is possible that one of these has come loose. If you try the universal, make sure the dip switches are in the same positions on both.

Or,

Take the fan down, and remove the receiver completely, from house wires and fan. (Make sure the breaker is off first!) Then wire the fan directly to the house wires. The blue wire on the fan is for lights. Wire it with the black wire in the same wire nut.

I'm assuming you have a wall switch that powers the wires coming from the ceiling.

By the way, I have never seen anyone control two fans with lights with one receiver. Usually each fan has its on.
