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.

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

SOURCE: how do i remove the

HI!!
I assume you've removed the blades. so next step is to check the canopy. The Ceiling Fan canopy has a decorative ring RIGHT against the ceiling that covers some screws. Remove the ring, remove the screws, the fan will come down. You don't have to mess with the motor assembly.
To Install Fan on a different location, you may follow the general instructions below that apply to your model.

General Installation Instructions for most fans:

1. Some pieces of the fan require assembly before hanging. Attach the blades to the blade brackets. In the case of a downrod fan, slip the canopy over the downrod and attach the downrod to the fan. In the case of a close mount (not hugger) fan, attach the canopy directly to the motor. In some cases you may want to attach the light fitter (should one apply) to the motor before assembly, in other cases it will be easier to attach once the fan is on the ceiling. Some fans also require the switch housing be plugged in and attached. In any case, at this point the fan should consist of 3 or 4 types of pieces: the motor assembly, the mounting bracket, the blades, and, if applicable, the light attachments.

2. Attach the mounting bracket to the fan brace and/or ceiling outlet box.

3. Hang the motor assembly from the mounting bracket. In some cases this will be via a small hook, in other cases the ball on the end of the downrod will fit directly in the bracket. Be sure the groove in the ball lines up with the tab in the bracket and/or canopy.

4. Connect the wires. Refer to the Ceiling Fan Wiring Guide for more information.

5. Attach the canopy to the mounting bracket. In the case of some fans this may be 2 thumbscrews on the bottom, others may have as many as four screws on the side. In close-mount fans and some downrod fans the canopy is load bearing, in other cases it is purely decorative. In downrod fans be sure the ball is (still) lined up with the tab in the bracket/canopy. If the canopy has a decorative ring to cover the screws, attach that.

5a. For hugger fans, attach the motor to the mounting bracket, in most cases with four locknuts (some fans may vary). Attach the motor housing cover to the mounting bracket (usually with four screws).

6. Attach the blades to the motor via the blade brackets. Each blade bracket uses two screws which fit directly to the motor or the flywheel.

7. Attach the light fitter, if applicable and if it has not already been attached. Attach the glass to the light kit, and any other decorative accessories the fan may include.


Mount a ceiling box in the location you will install your fan if it is a new installation. For replacing an existing fan, you can use the box already there after removing the old fan.

  • Mark the location for your new fan. Using an electrical box appropriate for ceiling fan installation, trace it's outline on the ceiling with a pencil.
  • Cut the outline of your box out with a keyhole saw.
  • Slide your new box into the hole you have cut until it is flush with the bottom of the ceiling.
  • Support the box with a block of wood nailed solidly into the ceiling joists.
  • Run the appropriate wire, usually #12 MC cable or "Romex".
  • Extend 6 inches of your new cable into the box, and connect the other end to a breaker in your panel box, or an existing circuit above the ceiling.
If you wish to have your ceiling fan controlled by a light switch, you will have additional electrical installation to do for the switch, as well, not covered in the scope of this article.
  1. Turn off the power to the fan. For this step, you will need to locate the electrical panel, find the breaker controlling the circuit the fan is on, and turn the breaker off. Be sure no one turns the breaker on while you are installing the fan.
  2. While power is off, hook the green ground wire on the mounting bracket to the green ground wire in the ceiling. Twist the wires together tightly. As this is the "ground", it will not need insulation.
  3. Slide the mounting bracket up to the ceiling. You should have a mounting plate which attaches to your ceiling box with two screws. These items are provided with the new fan.
  4. Strip 3/4 inch (approximately) of insulation from your white and black power wires in your ceiling box.
  5. Twist the bare conductors together tightly, matching the black and blue ceiling fan wires to the black power wire, and the white ceiling fan wire to the white power wire. Cap each one with insulated wire nuts, then wrap these with vinyl electrical tape if you desire.
  6. Look to see if your new fan has a down rod,and if so, slide it on the fan housing. Slide the canopy onto it. If it is a "low profile", or ceiling hugger type, loosen washer on canopy.
  7. Slide fan housing up to ceiling and secure the washer onto canopy. Secure fan.
  8. Slide each blade onto each blade bracket until they lock into place.
  9. Insert light bulbs.
  10. Squeeze light holders. Put each light shade onto each light. Let go of light holders. Light shades lock into place.
  11. Secure pull chains onto fan.
  12. Turn power on and test fan.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

I believe Harbor Breeze is sold through the Home Depot. Any well stocked Home Improvement store will carry a great selection of replacement globes for your light.

I have a 11 yr old Hampton Bay ceiling fan with light kit. The pull chain to operate the fan broke (evidently inside of the fan) and I cannot figure out how to fix it. Do I have to take off the light...


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.
