Question about Hampton Bay 54 In. 5-Blade Fan, Chestnut, Autumn Mist
I have a Hampton Bay (Windward II 54 in ceiling fan models 523 342 523 127) ceiling fan in my bedroom. I am having trouble with the light. The light has to stay on constantly and will not turn off with the remote. If you do not want the light on constantly than you have to unplug the light bulb from the source. Please let me know how to fix this problem. Thanks. Tammy
There is a 4 position (dip) switch on both the fan housing and the remote. Make sure these switches are set exactly the same and the remote will control the light and fan separately. If not, the remote may be getting interference on the preset frequency - try CHANGING the dip switches to a different setting and the remote should work.

It's a problem with the receiver. Contact Hampton Bay as this is under their lifetime warranty.

Could be a ballast problem...we've had to replace in two of our fans

The wireing harness in the fan may be wired incorrectly. Does the light come on when u press the fan button? If it does, and is not supposed to u have to get a ladder. Remove the screws around the upper houseing located on the ceiling. sometimes there is a ring that needs just a little turn and will come down and the screws will be visible. Now under that bell houseing against the ceiling there is a bracket that is holding the fan up so removing this cover will not make the fan come tumbling down. In side this bracket should be a black box (remote transmitter). and out of the pipe that goes down to the fan, there should be 3 wires coming up. If there is only 2 wires coming up from the pipe then the fan CANNOT be wired to have one or the other on. Typically. blue white and black. The white is a neutral, dont bother with that one. The blue controls the light, and the black would control the fan or visa versa. The white CANNOT control either. I suggest u shut the lightswitch off controling the fan or find the right circuit breaker to kill the power to the fan before poking around any of the wiring. if u do have the 3 wires u should be able to get your fan working correctly. Nothing to do with the house wiring, dont bother with that side of the transmitter above the fan. Just the wires coming out of the tranmitter box down to the fan. It sounds like its either not an option on that fan, or they just twisted both wires from the fan to the transmitter fan wire. Or all together.

Check the batteries in the remote control, try putting fresh/new batteries in the remote.
Hope this helps!
