We have a hampton bay, model 754332, ceiling fan with remote control.
The last few days, the light has come on by itself, and the fan has gone to a high speed. We usually run the fan on the low setting. The remote is in a covered box, again, no one is around it. Could this be a frequency issue? This problem just started this past week. Any insite you can give, would be appreciated.

Re: Mind of it's own
Your remote and fan is set to someone elses frequency by little toggle switches
you will have to remove fan to where it hangs make sure power off
find the remote sensor inside electric case at ceiling in the fan
this is a dip switch to control frequencies
you will see something like this adjust the dip switches
means change the dip switch for fan
then on remote open the remote battery pack find the dip switch in there
change those dip switches to the same as in ceiling fan
put fan together and turn back on power
your fan should now not pick up the other frequency of another remote and they have a span of about 50 yards to pick up frequencies

I had the same problem as well.....It turn out that there was interference from some other electronic device, garage door, microwave, digital phone etc etc etc who knows for sure. I removed the fan from the ceiling and pulled the small remote control box out, changed the code on the four tiny switches...changed the code on the remote control to match the control box...... Completely solved the problem with the lights. Hope this helps..
