Hampton Bay makes fans for HomeDepot. I would check with them or call 1(800) 654-0688 to buy one from the fan manufacturer. You need to find the UPC number which is located on a label on the top of the fan(body). I had a hard time making the numbers, but gat a camera and took a close up picture. The HomeDepot will help you find out the maker of your fan.(they have many makers so it is important to have the UPC no.)

I purchased a Universal Wall Mount Control to operate a current wireless controlled fan with a hand held remote. Why is the wall mount control not operating fan with fans original receiver?


Depending on the age and brand of the fan it could have dip switches on the receiver, the part of the remote control unit that is either up in the canopy of the fan or it may be built into the fan, and the wall control ie transmitter may not be compatible with it. When replacing a remote control unit it is advisable to replace both since it could be either the receiver or transmitter.

Remote control not working


Dear Sir/madam,

Check these steps........

1. Adjusting the dip switches:
Each fan/remote combination is set to work on a specific frequency, much like tuning in a specifc radio station. Some fans allow you to set this frequency by means of a set of small switches called "dip switches". There is one set located inside the remote, and the other set would be position on the fan, with the remote receiver electronics. This would be either on top of the motor, or inside the switch housing or ceiling canopy. These switches "tune" the remote and fan (received) to the same "station" and therefore must be set to the same setting. If a fan is not responding to the remote you can check to make sure that the switches are set to the same setting in both locations, and/or try a different setting. They are also useful if you have two remote fans, you will want to be sure each fan is set different so the remotes do not interfere. Lastly, if some other wireless device is interfering with the fan (causing it to turn on and off seemingly at random) such as a garage door opener or cordless phone, you can try a different setting on the dip switches.
2. Universal remotes:
If your fan remote is lost or broken, many suppliers, including this web site, offer a universal remote designed to work with the majority of different remote operated ceiling fans. Many are also universal for operating televions etc so you can control all your leisure and comfort devices from one unit.
3. Replacement parts:
Unfortunately, outside of Universal remotes, general replacement parts are not available for remote control systems. Your best bet is to contact the manufacturer.
3a. Repair:
Also unforunately, most problems with remote controls cannot be repaired outside of what is suggested above. If you have problems, contact the manufacturer, perhaps the fan is under warranty, or parts are available. Otherwise chances are the fan will stay broken.
4. Converting to 3 speed:
One common question: My fan's remote is broken, can I just convert it to a 3 speed pullchain like other fans? Again unfortunately, if you have to ask the question, then chances are the answer is no. It can be done but there are no universal directions, it varies drastically from fan motor to fan motor, and requires a fair amount of technical and electronic skill. A few exceptions: If the fan has a "remote bypass" switch you can select it and then use a wall control (or pullchain if there is one attached to the fan). Or . . .
5. Add-on remote kits
Some fan remote systems are not built into the fan, they were an option added by the installer at an additional cost. Usually they consist of a remote receiver wired to the fan inside the ceiling canopy, and the fan will still have a pullchain that is not used. If this is the case then the receiver can be removed and replaced with another remote/receiver kit, or the fan can be operated as standard with the 3 speed pullchain.



thanks
good luck

You can use a remote from Home Depot, where the fan was bought. Reverse will have to be done manually at fan.

Unable to get fan to respond to remote Hampton Bay 54".


There is most likely a wall switch which you will need to ppush to the on position to send power to the fan, then the remote will do as it is supposed to do. If you find that it is not the wall switch, then I would check the electrical panel for a circuit breaker that has kicked partway off or blown fuse.

Fan remote operates fan, won't operate light


If you press and hold the light button, it will step up in brightness to max then back down to dark. Then when you press the button briefly it will turn off and then press button briefly again it will turn on at the intensity you had it at last. So if you are one tick from off you may not notice it is "on" because it is dark. A second possibility is that you replaced the bulbs with a compact flourescent and they are not always happy with adjustable brightness, often they will be on or off, no middle ground. I recommend sticking with old school bulbs in the fan.
