Remote receiver doesn't fit

I am installing a Hampton Bay model 740 154 Mediterranean ceiling fan /light and it seems that the remote control receiver, which is supposed to be hidden in the canopy, is too large to fit. Any suggestions?

    Hey, thanks for the tip, Shaggyrat. I'll try the plate switch option. I assume I just fasten it with drywall screws, since there won't be any mounting box or bracket above. Should work!

I just bought this fan myself and was having the hardest time trying to figure out how to put that thing in the canopy as the pisspoor directions suggested.

I ended up putting sliding the receiver through the opening above the ball on the support arm. It's a pain in the **** especially if you already have the wires run in a certain direction.

Ok since you have the power off move ceiling fan box electrical box over place remote above the electrical box with the antenna sticking out replace fan power up you might have to go into attic to place the remote sensor and antenna down to outside of fan i had the same problem myself i made a cut in drywall ceiling big enough for sensor unit let the antenna hang out placed up there

i used a wall plate cut in half to match the hole i just made or you dry wall back up but if remote goes out theres now no way to get to sensor unit
little cut in drywall place sensor threw antenna hang down put plate over hole

The light on the remote is a battery light. First mistake was buying a store brand fan which are mostly low-end parts. Try adding a different remote w/receiver.

Ceiling fan remote control doesn't work


Sounds like you have an add-on remote. Try changing the frequency in the receiver & transmitter. If that doesn't work you probably need a new receiver.

Our Hampton Bay 52 in. Ceiling fan lights will not shut off but the remotes will still turn the fan on and off.


More than you will have to replace that remote and receiver with a new one . They sell them at lowes homedepot menards. Its very easy to install the reveiver is mounted in the cover at the ceiling. Make shure you set the little dip switches in the controller and receiver to the same number before installing.Hope this helps.

Hampton bay ceiling fan (7030T) remote does not work.


This symptom is usually caused by either a bad receiver or bad transmitter. Install a new remote system (receiver & transmitter).

Can a remote control be installed on the Huntington III?


Yes you can operate them with two styles of remotes: either the remote wall switch, or a hand held remote. Both require the receiver to be mounted above the top of the fan in the base it is wired to. The receiver has wires on both sides; the one side wires directly to the house wires, and the other goes to the fan and light. They are both sold at Home Depot and Lowes. The ones at Home Depot also include the set made by the fan manufacturer.

Have a Hampton Bay ceiling fan that doesn't work.


I'm pretty sure that home depot does sell remotes for that brand, although you may have to buy a new receiver to go with it. Otherwise try a lighting store near where you live. They seem to be able to order things like that.

Installing ceiling fan with two switches AND a remote


in your ceiling box should be three wires. a red goes to the three way switches, a black goes to the hot and the white is the neutral. the fan wires are black, blue and white. since you have a remote, connect the [fan] blue & black together with the [line] black. connect all white wires together. the remote will now ramp up your lights from off to full on and the fan remote will let you choose lo med high and off. just tape up the red wire in the box.
