Question about Heating & Cooling
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.
