There is no one answer to this problem since Hampton Bay fans are made by several different manufacturers. Having just been through this problem, may I offer what I think is the fastest and easiest way for a fix. I started with a call to Hampton Bay at
(800) 749-3267 and was told to call (877) 527-0313, which was a Home Depot contact.The very pleasant women sent me to
1-979-553-3260. This last number is for an outfit in Texas, Gulf Coast Fans. They listened to problem and suggested that I send the broken switch to them, which I did, cost less than $2.00.
Two days later they called and suggested I order a switch from them and gave me the switch number. I ordered the next day and received replacement in two days. This worked very well. Only problem is that the cost from Gulf Coast is a bit high. After trying all combinations myself before contacting these guys and buying a switch from Home Depot which did not work, I was willing to pay a bit more. Good luck

Chain broke off ceiling fan


Is it broken off inside the pull switch? If so, I would recommend replacing the switch. The chain attatchment assembly is riveted onto the electrical part of the switch. It is possible to drill out the rivets to separate the two sides of the assembly to replace the chain, however you would need to use small bolts with nuts to reattatch pieces together after installing new chain. It's a pain in the back side.
(of course all this repair work needs to be completed after removing the fan from its ceiling location and disconnecting the wiring)

3-speed switch replaced with hampton bay switch. Only low speed works.


The cause to the problem was replacing a HUNTER fan switch with a Hampton Bay switch. Before removing the old switch, I noted and marked the color and position of the 4 wires. I then duplicated the connections to the new switch.

But the wire positions of Hampton Bay vs Hunter are not identical, therefore 2 wires
were crossed.

The correct way is to note the color of the wires with the corresponding NUMBER
marked on the switches, then duplicate this on the new one.

Du-uh!

Hampton Bay ceiling fan with pull chains not working


Whether there is a reset switch on this unit or not would depend on the model. If you no longer have the owners manual you should be able to get it from the hampton web site. Many fans have a thermal fuse inline that probably was blown when the bulb broke. The cheaper models do not and then I would guess you burned out the switch.
