Question about Universal Remote Control Hampton Bay Universal Ceiling Fan/TV/DVD/Satellite Remote Control

1 Answer

Just moved into a house that has low voltage outdoor lights. They were working a month ago, but not sure what's happening now. Checked transformer. Lights work in the "on" position, but transformer makes a high pitched buzzing noise while on. If I put any other option for "dusk to dawn", "2 hrs", "4 hrs" etc... does not work. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Thanks!!!

    Is there a way to "reset" the unit? The lights still come on when I use the on/off button. Or maybe it's the sensor? Sorry, but I'm just looking for an easy solution rather than buying a new one. It also seems the unit is hardwired to the house - no plug.

Hi GlennMayer1

The high pitched noise you here is the switchmode electronic type power supply/control electronics malfunctioning. This could be caused by component failure in the power supply or a short circuit in the wiring preventing it from firing up correctly. Hard wiring a lamp directly to the power supply would allow you to check the system, but a replacement power supply is probably required.

Where is the low voltage 24 vac transformer located?


The transformer is located in the furnace. You might want to check to make sure the furnace door is on correctly brcause theres a swich that will open for safety . Also some have a fuse on the solid state board.

My Icon bathroom fan does not work by timer I have changed timer , transformer and electrics have been checked (with certificate) What next !


Which timer do your have?
Not all timers work with fan motors?
Are you adding a new bath fan? Or are you installing a new timer?

What transformer what checked? A transformer is used to change voltage. For example you can plug a Malibu outdoor-light transformer into ordinary 120V outlet and the transformer changes voltage to 12 volts so you can safely operate lights stuck into the ground around bushes. Or your phone recharges using transformer that converts ordinary 120Volt into very low voltage entering your phone.
Practically every electronic device in your home has a transformer ... microwave, TV, computer ... but I don't know why a bath fan would have a transformer.
Add a comment, and I will respond.

It is unlikely that you have a transformer at your outdoor unit. If your furnace has an electronic control board, look for a low voltage fuse that may be blown. The low voltage fuses used now usually resemble a car fuse.

Thermostat wires dead


If you have a split system (an air handler that blows air into your house and an outdoor unit that has the compressor and condenser coil/fan), then you should look in the electrical compartment of your indoor unit and see if you can locate a low voltage fuse. This is usually located on the control board or between the transformer and "R". Make sure you shut off the power to your indoor unit first as they will still be 240volts available there. If the fuse is blown, replace it and reinstall your thermostat. Turn the power back on. If the thermostat is wired properly with no damaged wires in the process, the system should work fine.
If there is NO fuse, then check the low voltage side of your transformer using a Voltmeter. You will have to have the power on to perform this test. Be very careful. On one side of the transformer, you will read 240volts. The other side should read 24 volts. If there is no voltage on the 24volt side, you blew the transformer and will need to replace it.
Check these items first. If you need further assistance, let us know and we will dig a lil' deeper. :-)

The low voltage fuse could be a glass cartridge fuse (systems typically older than 15 - 20 years old). Newer systems use the same style fuses that are used in your truck or car (ATC type).

Power at 3 feet, not at 2 feet ???


You might need to check the power source for proper voltage, sometimes outdoor wiring is at the mercy of the elements. Rusty screws on recepticles and so forth. Another problem could be exposed wire in the line bleeding of to ground. Sometimes this happens if a fixture is removed and the wire not properly protected. If these are none of your problems just take up your fixtures and replace the wire. 16 guage underground feed will probably be less expensive than the transformer you bought.

I want to find the transformer for the 36 volt inside unit. Is it in the inside unit or outside unit .I have no power to the inside unit however the outside unit has power,and the inside unit appears to be...


It's a 24v transformer. Your indoor unit houses the transformer for the outdoor unit. The outdoor has a low voltage (24v) supply running to it to push in the contactor for the outdoor unit to run. If your air handler inside has no power then it will kill your LOW VOLTAGE power to the outdoor unit. You will still have the high voltage power to the outdoor unit. You may have a fuse on the switch for your air handler blown if there is one. On the disconnect switch mounted to your air handler, you will have a door to open and a fuse in there. If not, check your main breaker at the panel. If you don't know what a transformer looks like, you may want to have someone familiar with electrical of HVAC help you. To check the transformer for power, you first need power to your air handler, which you don't have. I would say that is not your problem. I would assume your air conditioner is not running outside, correct? Your problem is the power (HIGH VOLTAGE) to your air handler. Loose wires, blown fuse, tripped breaker etc...

Airconditioner wont come on


Does the indoor blower come on? If not you might have a low voltage problem in your thermostat circuit or blown breaker or fuse for your furnace which energizes the contactor outdoors. If indoor blower runs check if their are any fuses in your outdoor disconnect.
