Question about Hampton Bay Sidewinder 04890 Ceiling Fan
I have a Hampton Bay Sidewinder 54" model #04889. The bulb went out and I replaced it with no change. I have another one and changed out the remote box with no change. I am assuming the problem is in the ceiling fan. Any suggestions.

There is a 4 position (dip) switch on both the fan housing and the remote. Make sure these switches are set exactly the same and the remote will control the light and fan separately. If not, the remote may be getting interference on the preset frequency - try CHANGING the dip switches to a different setting and the remote should work.

I had the exact same problem. To solve it, I had a friend hold the area
of the fan that the globe screws into. I wore rubber dish gloves to get
a good grip and pushed up slightly on the globe as I turned
counter-clockwise. My friend held the other part and turned clockwise a
little as well. It took a lot of pressure for it to finally come loose
and then we just turned it about another 90 degrees and the globe slips
right out of the groove.
I couldn't believe how hard this was to do.

go to Home Depot, not only do they have replacements, but they can order for you what you need. Hampton Bay is the Home Depot brand.

hi there i can help. There is a "dip switch" on nearly all fan remote units, much like a garage door opener has. To keep all the fans in your home from operating at one time, each fan needs a seperate "code". To use your other remote, you need to locate the receiver unit in the fan, usually in the "canopy". This is the bowl looking piece against the ceiling. then note the "code" which is the position of the switches. For instance, most have a block with 4 switches, and if the first is "on", and the remaining are "off", that is it's set code. This "code" can be changed to any combination of "on , off" that you like. BUT, you must also open the remote control and set it's switch to the exact same "Code", or order of "on off" as your Fan receiver. (Usually the control "Dip switch" is in the battery compartment.
