You should be able to get switch replacement (generic ones are sold at your local hardware store) you will have to disassemble the unit with the power off, and replace the switch.

Yes, you could, but you want have any way to control the fan speed. Unless, you install a rheostat that is rated for electric motors. A light dimming rheostat is not heavy duty enough, to handle the fan motor without over heating.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Hi, Betty. Hampton Bay Ceiling fans are a house brand for Home Depot. They do sell replacement hand-held remotes, that can be programmed to match your fan. But, before you rush off to buy a new one, change the batteries in the remote first. There's a batteries in the handl held remote and some in the receiver, inside the fans cowling. Low batteries can cause what is happening with your fan.

Hope this helped you.

I need to replace the pull chain that controls the blade speed for my Hampton Bay ceiling fan. I do not know the model number, but it is a 52" five-blade fan.


If the chain is broken off at the switch, you will need to replace the entire switch. It is not difficult to do and you can purchase a new switch from either Lowe's or Home Depot. You''ll find the switch in the ceiling fan department.

All you need to do, to remove the switch is remove the bottom cover of the fan housing, where the switch is located (if you have a light kit, you will need to remove it). This will give you access to the wiring and the switch. The switch is held in place by a threaded retainer ring on the outside of the fan housing. Unscrew it and push the switch back into the housing, Disconnect the wire nuts and totally remove the switch. Take it with you, when you go to purchase a new one.

If the chain is still visible by at least 1" all you need to do is purchase a new chain (usually comes with connector) and connect the two together.

As always, be sure the electricity is turned off to the fan, before attempting any repairs.

Hope this helps solve your problem.

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.

Hi, i have a hampton bay ceiling fan model 48-tp, how do i remove the light bulb to make the replacement for a new one ? i`m stuck with no lights here ! thanks,


I am assuming that you want to replace the lighting kit, underneath the light housing there are two screws, unscrew them and the light kit will come off, make sure the power is off, then unhook the wires and hook up the new light kit. Now if it just a light bulb it unscrews counterclockwise. Hope this helped Tim

Low and medium fan speed no longer works on our Hampton Bay fan when you pull the chain. The high speed works. Can this be fixed with a repair part?


the speed is controlled by a capacitor bank ... high speed uses no capacitors, low speed uses a small capacitor in series with the motor and medium speed uses a larger capacitor ... the pull chain switch selects which capacitor is used ... so if the capacitors go bad or if the switch fails to select them then you will not have low and medium speed ... so you could have a bad speed capacitor block or a bad switch or wiring that has come loose inside the fan (that connects the capacitors) .. all are replaceable .. i would first remove the covers from the fan and check all wire connections .. check the switch to see if it operates smoothly .. then suspect the capacitor block .. if you were an electrician then you could bypass the switch to test its function but if you are not then make sure power is off while working on the fan .. you should be able to get a new capacitor block from the manufacturer .. most are similar if they will phisically fit in the fan housing and have the same connectors ..

Hampton bay fan remote is not working. Changes batteries, checked plug Neither light nor fan works


It may not be the controller but the circuit board on the appliance. Check for any onboard fuses and go from there. This information should be in your users manual.
