Take the screws out of the sides of the top cover plate...drop it down, then unhook the wires and remove the screws holding the mounting plate...

I'm unfamiliar with your exact model but your description makes it very similar to the "King of Fans" branded models I fitted in my house twenty years ago and have fixed a few times. It might even be that yours are made by the same company as Home Depot source their Hampton Bay range from a variety of manufacturers including KoF.
You are entirely correct that you can access the pull chain once you have removed the lamp assembly. If it's just the chain which has snapped then it's normally straightforward to remove the short piece from the switch and install what's left onto the switch, but if your chain is the typical ball and link type and is more than a few years old then replace it with a new one if you can obtain the right size easily. They're not expensive, and the old one will have wear and tear making another failure highly likely. If either of the switches has failed (the pull switch or the fan direction switch) then they're also usually easy to obtain from any electronics store at low cost or you can contact Home Depot regarding spares, also check here and here. Your total repair cost should therefore be no more than a few £'s, $'s or whatever else you use locally: far cheaper and quicker than fitting a new fan.
I hope that my reply has been of use to you and saves you a lot of time and money. Please take a brief moment to rate my answer.

First, be sure you did not change one of the dip switches in the hand held unit while changing batteries. You would have to see if the switches in the hand held unit match the switch positions in the fan receiver.
This is one of the many sites you can go to for remotes:
Hampton Bay fans are sold exclusively by Home Depot. I would check on line or stop by one of their stores to see if you can pick up a HB remote. Once you get a new remote you have to again make sure the dip switches are in the same position. Paul

Hi, First you need to check the housing mounted to the ceiling as the transmitter is there. Next you have to try and match it to a new remote or look for some number on the transmitter. However you can usually buy a new remote and transmitter for 30 bucks and just swap out the transmitter. This will be helpful in case you cannot match the numbers. They come labelled and r pretty easy to install. Please accept the solution if it's helpful. Do get back to us for any further query. Thanks for contacting fixya.com

The black and blue wire should conncect to the black wire in the electric box and the white wire should connect to the white wire in the box. This assumes the wiring was correctly installed.
