Go to any hardware store and buy a replacement kit. You'll have to take down the fan (turn off the power first) and remove the black remote box from inside the cup covering all the wiring. Replace that with the new black box that came with the new remote. Make sure that the remote control and black box pins are set the same and reinstall your fan. Total time, probably 30-45 minutes plus a trip to the hardware store. Level of difficulty, moderately easy. Cost, probably $15 min to $40 max. Anything above $40 and you may as well replace the fan altogether. Note: Before you remove the original black box, check the pin settings and set the new hand remote to those settings. Turn on the power and try to turn on the light with the remote control (don't turn the fan on unless you totally reinstalled it) - if it works, you may not need to replace the black box.

How to sync the remote with the fan?The remote was operating the fan, but someone must have pulled the chain on the fan.


I have a ceiling fan that fails to operate under remote control whenever a power outage occurs. The solution is to pull the chain to guess which is an ON position, then operate the remote to select fan speed or off. Same routine for the light, if there is one.

The remote on my Hunter ceiling fan (Model: 27185 - 060) does not activate the ceiling fan. I can turn the light on manually, but not the ceiling fan. I cannot see the antenna on the ceiling fan.


The first thing you need to do, is change the battery(s) in the hand held remote, as well as the battery(s) in the receiver inside the fan's cowling. Weak batteries will limit a remotes operation.
And, FYI - there is no antenna on the ceiling fan.

I hope this helps you. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Ceiling fan is all wired up and on ceiling but light doesn't come on or fan doesn't spin. I have checked connections and tested for power. Is there a switch or anything on receiver that needs to be...


Jerry, from what you said, I assume you have a remote controlled ceiling fan. If that's the case, check the batteries in the hand held and the receiver, to make sure they are charged. Also, make sure they are installed properly. The Owner's Manual should have a reference to setting or resetting the codes for the remote control (Hand Held & the Receiver). Check those to make sure they are matching. And don't forget, the wall switch must remain ON for the fan to work, even with the remote control. The remote simply overrides the wall switch, when in operation. You may have to use the pull chain to start the fan motor the first time, then the remote can take over from there.

Good luck. I hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

My grandson lost my remote to the 132cm. crosswinds ceiling fan. 0044687. where can i get a new one?


A new remote or new Grandson? For the remote you can try Lowes or Home Depot. They have a small display of handheld remotes for ceiling fans and remotes for overhead lights. I looked up the brand and Crosswinds is carried by Lowes.

I hope my solution is very helpful and that the remote will be reasonable priced. If you had an idea to add a fan to another room you could get the second fan and try its remote on the old fan. That way you would not be spending extra dollars for just a remote.

My mom was constantly losing TV remotes. Have your Grandson look under sofas and recliners as they tend to swallow remotes. If you have a cat, check your shoe closet because cats will place objects in their owners shoes. If you have a dog, it may have swallowed the remote. It might be worth checking.

There is a small relay in the ceiling fan causing this noise, try turning off all power to the ceiling fan and allow it to set for a couple of minutes. Turn it back on and see if it goes away. If it does great. if not, it may not be worth the repair cost but it can be fix by an appliance tech.

you need to make sure there is not a wire loose inside the ceiling fan electrical housing you lost power somewhere they also have small electronic control boards installed in them now check for broken wires or shorts first. You will need to take the screws out at the top by the ceiling. It will be the round cover up by the ceiling with the rod coming down through the middle. Make sure to turn off power first.

I have a ceiling fan with remote control. My kid dropped the remote control and now the ceiling fan won't turn on the lights or the fan. What can I do?


It may be as simple as removing the batteries and putting them in again. Sometimes they can be jarred loose from their contact points when they are dropped. Try that first and see if it helps.

Hello Brother,
Installation:
Hang your ceiling fan on the Quick Connect fan bracket and wire the ceiling fan according to the manufacturer's instructions. The three wires coming from your ceiling should match the three wires coming from your ceiling fan: black (positive or hot), white (neutral or negative) and green (ground wire).


Use the high, medium and low keys on the remote to adjust the Hampton Bay fan speed, then use the light key to dim the light and the off key to turn off the fan.


For REMOTE CONTROL FANS you cannot use with any variable speed or slide wall switches. The remote control function must be used with on & off switch outlets only.
