This sounds like one of the most common problems with Hampton Bay's remote-contolled fans...either the transmitter (remote control) or the receiver (mounted in the fan, typically inside the ceiling canopy) has gone haywire. A circuit has blown or something is short-circuited, and it has a mind of it's own. Some things work, others don't, and others only intermittently. The only fix is to replace the receiver and transmitter, which are relatively cheap and sold as a pair at your local Home Depot and Lowes.

Hope that helps! If you ave any other questions, feel free to ask!

Casa Endeavor fan works, light does not. Installed new receiver and tested remote both are good. Took the light to a repair shop, light works there, just not once attached to fan in the ceiling.


If your fixture has pull chains in addition to remote control operation can get the remote control confused. Try experimenting to find a procedure that works and follow it consistently. Also, a power outage can disrupt the whole routine.

We just recently installed a harbor breeze ceiling fan w/light and remote. During a storm the lights just quit working. What can we do?


Power outages cause ceiling fans to suffer memory loss. The basic "cure" is to disconnect fan power at the source and, while waiting a few minutes, remove the remote battery and press all buttons to verify that none are stuck. Reinstall the battery and test operation. Other factors may affect restored operation such as using wall switches and pulling the chains. The simple brain in the fan canopy can't remember switch and/or pull chain settings at the instant of power loss.

Can't turn off fan when light is on


Not sure, but if its a new installation, I would say that the wiring has been done incorrectly. Ceiling fans with lights should be able to work independently. both on / off or 1 on, the other off.

Lights won't work on Harbor Breeze ceiling fan


Ceiling fans operated with remote controls, pull chains, and/or wall switches tend to get confused and just fail. You can try disconnecting power at the source and, while pausing briefly, remove batteries from the remote and push all buttons to eliminate the "stuck button" cause. Then, reconnect power and try various combinations of controls until something works or you give up in frustration.

My control won't activate the light on my Hunter fan. The light comes on via pull chain fine, and the control works the 3 speeds on the fan, but the light won't respond.


Check the wiring on your receiver to make sure the light wire is connected.You have to have the light on with the pull chain and then use the remote to turn it on/off.

Monte Carlo ceiling fan and light not working


Even a brief power outage can cause amnesia in the receiver. You can try disconnecting power at the source and spending a few minutes removing the battery from the wall-mounted remote and pressing all buttons to eliminate the 'stuck button' problem. Reinstall the remote battery and reconnect main power to the unit. Test operation.
Lastly, there always is the possibility that some gremlin changed your original control setup.

Have hampton bay add on remote control kit on patio ceiling fan. Battery died in the remote, so kid turned fan off with pull chain. replced battery, now cant get fan to work on any pull chain settings....


The pull switch in the fan may be broken in the off position. Luckily these are easy to replace. Purchase a new switch. Obtain a wire stripper and phillips screwdriver. Lower the light (if installed) or the blank by removing the screws. Disconnect light if installed. Unscrew nurled knob on fan switch and remove switch. Make note of where the wires go, I take a picture with my cell phone. Cut wires off as close to the old switch as you can. Strip about 1/4 to 3/8 inch of the insulation off the end with the wire stripper. Insert into the appropriate hole in the switch. Nothing to tighten to lock down here, it will hold it. Reinstall switch and light and test for proper operation.

Why won't my remote for my light on the Hunter fan work? The light also will not come on when I pull the chain.


I usually discuss this exact problem with customers that have a DIY ceiling fan. First; If you just installed this fan you noticed that there are several switches on the fan and on the remote, there is also the switch that originally controlled the ceiling light fixture (If it is a dimmer switch, it MUST be replaced with a single pull switch). All of these can be set wrong. Make sure the circuit breaker is not "tripped."
To start easy; assure that the wall switch is on, (leave all the "pull chains" alone, for now) Check to see that the remote has fresh batteries. press the light switch (on the remote, if it is a dimmer type set it to high, press it several times. If this does not work leave all the switches where they are and pull the light chain once, and again try the remote for the lights only. Hopefully that worked. Now do the same for the fan, press the remote once (on any speed) If that does not work pull the fan chain once try the remote again pressing the same switch, that should work. Now that you have it working remove all the pull chains, so it won't get "confused" again. Good luck!

Hampton bay ceiling fan stopped lights work


you can test the light switch by temporarily hooking up the light bulb to where the fan normally goes ....the bulb will only work on the highest speed setting but can prove if the switch is bad or not . turn power off before woking in there ... if you know someone with a volt meter then they could quickly test the switch for you .. they can also test the motor for continuity .. .. most of the time the trouble is simply bad connections inside the wire nuts ... like insulation not skinned properly or wire not in the wire nut properly ..you can remove and inspect each connection (power off of course) ... sometimes there is a seperate power line for the fan and light ... so they can be independently controlled externally ... thats not needed when the pull chains are the only off on method ...

Remote does not consistently work


You can include a push chain switch, if theres enough room in the ceiling fan housing. This is a job for a professional electrician or appliance serviceman who is willing to modify an appliance. It will need to be tested for intrinsic safety and the work should carry some sort of warranty since the pull chain modification (if made on the ceiling fan house) will likely void any warranty. Instead, I advise that the pull switch could be intalled elsewhere in the room. However, it still remains a job for a profession electrician who can install the pull switch in parallel with the existing switch.

This would however be able to control all three fans with just one pull switch if you wanted.
