The remote is the only controller. Try turning off the power to the system at the breaker or o.d. disconnect, wait about 10 mins(at least 5) and then turn power back on. This should reset the system and if it has the controller locked out, should reset it also. If not, the remote may be damaged. Or I.d. unit sensing capabilities are damaged. Make sure the battery terminals in the remote are not corroded or broken and the batteries are new/hot. If the indoor unit has had water leak issues it may have damaged the sensor inside the air handler. I'm not sure what unit you have, window unit or mini split
The first thing I would suggest it to verify that power is provided to the unit. You should get a display on the face of the indoor unit if there is power. If there is power, try turning the outdoor unit off for a few seconds and back on to reset the controller. If your unit is like I think it is, the indoor unit receives its power and control signal from the outdoor unit, then the remote utilizes a rf signal to control the system. Also try new batteries in YOUR remote.
Hi Russell Webe,
just a guess, but sounds as though the remote receiver board is faulty, however you might try new batteries in the remote first,it may help. failing that it is time to call the serviceman. Also try turning the power off to the Ac unit for about 5 minutes and then back on again. This will reset the electronics and again may solve your problem
That may be, because you were using the Remote Control to operate it, but then turned off the wall switch instead of turning it off using the Remote Control.
Turn the wall switch back On and try to get the Remote Control to take back over the operation. If that solves your problem, in the future you will know to turn off the fan and lights with the remote, before turning off the wall switch.
Hope this helps solve your problem. My wife had to learn the same way with ours.
I had the same problem. I fixed it by turning off the battery switch to disconnect the battery from the power panel. I then had to turn off the main 110 breakers to shut down the converter. Once all the power was turned off the LED light went off. When I turned the power back on the remote was working fine. Hope this works for you.
Go to any hardware store and buy a replacement kit. You'll have to take down the fan (turn off the power first) and remove the black remote box from inside the cup covering all the wiring. Replace that with the new black box that came with the new remote. Make sure that the remote control and black box pins are set the same and reinstall your fan. Total time, probably 30-45 minutes plus a trip to the hardware store. Level of difficulty, moderately easy. Cost, probably $15 min to $40 max. Anything above $40 and you may as well replace the fan altogether. Note: Before you remove the original black box, check the pin settings and set the new hand remote to those settings. Turn on the power and try to turn on the light with the remote control (don't turn the fan on unless you totally reinstalled it) - if it works, you may not need to replace the black box.
