Hampton Bay Classic Collection 52" remote ceiling light/fan
Have separate wall switch for fan & light with remote also, sometimes switches don't work -- remote doesn't work at all now. Need detail wiring diagram to double check installation - if it worked after installation, what would cause it to malfunction now? Thanks for any help, Norm
Re: Hampton Bay Classic Collection 52" remote ceiling...
Rechecked wiring, but blue with blue, white with white, etc., now lights work with remote,but fan only works with wall switch - so why doesn't fan work with remote,if lights work the remote & receiver must be ok?

Check your wall switch you either lost your neautral or have a bad connection on your switch. Solution check white wires that are twisted tougher in wire nut and check the black wires on switch to make sure one of them don't pull out . Over time the black wires pushed in back of switch can work loose .
The problem is that the CFL lamps, once they are lit, will stay energized by a very low level of current, and the remote obviously is not what we would call a positive off device .. if you use the wall switch and then go back to the remote in the off position , do the lights come on flickering again? You could try another brand of remote.
Try these two: 1) look for a small switch up near the light area on the dark-colored area of the fan. If a switch is there, then simply flip the switch to the other position; 2) if you have a remote control for the fan, the reverse mode may appear on the remote control. Hope this helps.
Some fans will not operate without the remote, however, I'm not sure if the Hampton Bay brand is one of these or not. Below is how you will bypass the remote if the fan will operate without the remote.
You can try disconnecting the receiver in the canopy of the van (the cover that fits snug to the ceiling) once you have shut off the power source remove the canopy and find the remote receiver.
Most likely it will be a rectangular box with white, black, and blue or red wires attached. Disconnect all wires from the receiver and lay it to the side.
Now reconnect the wires directly to the fan, white to white, black to black, if you have a red wire (or a second black wire) in the ceiling box connect it to the blue wire from the fan.
If you do not have a red wire (or second black wire) in the ceiling box, connect the black and blue wire from the fan to the single black wire in the ceiling box. This method will require you to pull the chain to operate the fan separately.
Electricians can be so much fun can't they ? LOL I would ask the electrician to bypass the remote to check the fan operation first. You need to know if your problem is the remote or the fan itself.. A simple wiring change in the junction box can be done to determine which issue to focus on.. Hope this helps..
