Question about Hampton Bay 24002 Ceiling Fan
Sorry, couldn't help but grin.
The remotes operate in the radio frequency range and are probably susceptable to more than just the frequency transmitted by the remotes.
Just think of ALL the 'remotes' we have today! It is inevitable that this kind of problem will multiply.
Many cell phones are 'spread spectrum' which means they sweep through a range of frequencies to avoid eavesdroppers with scanners from tuning in.
The remote supplied with Dish TV for rooms away from the actual receiver also use RF to communicate.
Also, garage door remotes may operate in the same range and newer ones also change frequencies in concert with the receiver to prevent people with 1000 watt CBs (illegal) from just keying up while rolling down the street and opening random garages. I have a friend who delights in doing this still today cruising through tracts in his area.
If they were mine, I would ground the housing (or the input of the receiver inside) of the fan through a few different low-value ceramic capacitors to find which one will allow the receiver to still be usable but able to ignore outside signals of lesser strength.
I'm afraid I can't give you explicit solutions on this one since it would take a good bit of experience to do what I described above.
