Question about Hampton Bay 24002 Ceiling Fan

2 Answers

The instructions ( Hampton Bay Altura )say to hook white (house) to white (remote receiver)and black (house) to black (receiver), then white, black and blue out of the receiver to their matching wires coming from the fan - did it all, and put a voltmeter across the white and black legs to make sure I was hot - 120 V AC. The previous fan was a Hunter, and it used the red, white and black wires coming from the ceiling. I ignored the red /wire-nutted it off. No workee. What did I do wrong ?

    It seems counterintuitive that I made no errors; the fan is brand new. I'm unsure about the red wire. I have to admit to being skeptical about the remote control...but if everything is wired per the factory instructions...

    There's no other switch for the fan. I looked in the box behind the wall switch and there's only two wires coming out of the switch - and these were licensed guys ! That fan has worked fine for 18 years; these are nicer fans - if we can get 'em working ! Additionally, there's no light on the fan; the only control is the remote. I have a light kit I want to install, but it's not on yet - wanted to make sure the fan was working first ! No pull cord - just the remote...

    I'll try that in the morning. Possibly the red was to switch a light on the fan - there's a " vacant " switch next to it on the box, could be a switched outlet, but what outlet...I'll try that manana. Thanks for getting back !

    Why do you think it doesn't work ? I made certain the DIP switches on the receiver / transmitter matched. What was the red wire doing previously. It's all new hardware, right out of the box. Any ideas ? Is there anything in particular I should do with the red wire ? Would it help to know the color of the wires coming out of the wall switch that operates the fan ?

    why the rating? just wanted to let u know the wiring is correct then we could move on, suspect the receiver is defective, we experts do this part time and need time to answer your comments back, please be more patient, I was going to give more assistance, have you tried bypassing the remote and wiring the fan motor direct to see if it works, do that and let me know, could u please change dismal rating, i am trying to help here.

    the red wire is the hot lead in the fan wiring, the black wire is the hot wire in house wiring, so black goes to red of fan. white is nuetral, the other conductor is earth, I think this is how u wiored it, or did u get the Black mixed up with the white nuetral or common ?

Hello! The Red lead indicates house wiring for two three way switches...You need the Red lead in order for the fan to work...Tell me: #1...How many switches control the fan; Can you turn it off/on from more then one wall switch?...#2...Is there a light fixture on the fan; If so does the light have its own wall switch or just a pull cord?

    Hello! It's difficult to say why the drop is Red, Black and white without three way switches installed...The objective is to use the Red wire as a "carrier" to a second switch...However, the Red should be hot...Meter between the Red and White out of the ceiling and throw the switch "on/off"...Should read 120VAC when "on"...Wire the fan across the Red and White...Nut-off the Black...Send a comment...

Hampton bay fan model 761 567 running faster on


Your issue is most likely a faulty speed control. The part is integral to the remote receiver in the fan housing. You can purchase spare parts for this fan through Home Depot (Hampton Bay) Service at 800-654-0688.

The receiver is located in the upper portion of the housing for the fan motor. Look for a semi-circular black control box (usually manufactured by Rhine)

My ceiling fan does not work.It is a Hampton Bay. There is power.


Hampton Bay receivers are notorious for taking a dump, replace the remote. If you're just adding the remote... There will be 6 wires on the remote, a set of two (white and black) a set of three (white black red or blue) and a single small wire by itself. The single wire by itself is the Antenna wire, do not wire it to anything, or it will fry the board in the receiver.

Altura 68" fans will not operate on high speed.


I jtoo, ust bought The Altura (68" fan from home depot)
Home depot makes hampton bay through various chinese manufacturers.................
The fan ran slow on high speed, and barely ran on medium or low.
home depot gave me a number for their tech department that knew right away.....that the capacitor(s) are defective in many of the Altura fans.
They are sending the capacitors in 3 days to me no charge.
They are located under the fan ( remember the white square plastic plug you had to connect and the 2 wires for the optional light kit?.....)That plug is for the capacitors that everyone is having a problem with.
My guess is they are under rated for a fan that big and are sending better ones to those with problems.
Hope this helps.

The Hampton Bay Altura Ceiling fan functions only with remote.


I contacted the manufacturer (kingofffans.com) after my Altura fan would run on high speed only and the remote would not control any thing. They said their was a manufacturing defect with a capacitor that affected many of the Altura fans. We are now on a waiting list for a new capacitor and housing, because they did not have enough replacement parts.
