Casa Vieja Intrepid Remote Control Sensing Problem

I had to replace both the remote and sensor for my Casa Vieja "Intrepid".  Long story short, when the light housing is not attached, the remote will work from any distance in the room.  Once the light fixture is re-attached, the only way for the remote to activate or stop anything is by literally bringing the remote within inches of the remote sensor housing about the light.  The replacement remote is a "04756 remote Old Non LCD" and the receiver is the, "28848 Receiver 70639A Current Grey".  Any ideas?

    The sensor and remote were purchased at the same time, and I was told they were the right parts.  Are you saying that one is incompatible with the other?  If so which is the bad item?  All I know, is when the light fixture is not affixed to the ceiling lamp the remote works without issue.  As soon as the light section is attached, suddenly the remote has to be approximately 2 - 4 inches from the sensor housing.  Thanks

I have a problem and would hope someone here could shed some light. We bought an home has two Casa Vieja ceiling fans, 4 lights underneath the fan blades and one pull chain. I tried to take the conical top off to see if there was a sensor under it as suggested by a lighting shop so that the remotes left behind could also be programmed to the same frequency. The remote has 5 pins that you can flip up or down in any combination you want. We were told the fan had to be the same. But upon removing the conical sphere at the top it only houses the wires and would have fallen to the floor is I had removed more then 2 screws.

My question is this: if this fan set up to receive a remote frequency to turn it on or not?
Thanks, Mike

I had the same up close problem with mine. I noticed the 9V battery clip connection to the battery was slightly loose. After tightening female side of the battery clip in the remote with pliers I can now operate the fan from anywhere in the room. My guess is the voltage drop across the bad connection kept the remote from transmitting as far.

Casa Vieja ceiling fan w/remote; worked well. Then wall switch was turned on/off, chains pulled. Everything working: fan high, med and low, and light on/off/dim - except now fan won't turn off !

The chain pulling and switch flipping causes the simple logic in the remote receiver to become confused. Your only hope for restoring normal operation (short of replacement) is to disconnect power at the source, then remove remote battery and press all buttons to eliminate "stuck button" problem. Reconnect power and test operation using only the remote. If normal, you will have to decide whether to disable pull chains, wall switches, or both. If not normal, you will have to try an infinite number of combinations of pull chains, wall switches, and power on-off to get things back to normal.

How do I reset the remote for my casa vieja ceiling fan

Most have 4 dip switches that you match the receiver & transmitter to. This is a store brand that was purchased on the internet so you might want to contact the place you ordered it through.

Need help with my remote

On the remote piece that is placed in-line in the main electrical connection to the fan, there should be series of 4 or 5 little switches. The switches on the hand held remote have to be set to the same position as the switches on the main remote transmitter. I'm not sure if all remotes for fans are the same but that's how I have seen them in the past.
