Question about Hampton Bay 54 In. 5-Blade Fan, Chestnut, Autumn Mist

1 Answer

The lights on fan go on at 2am for NO REASON!!

HELP!!!!!!!!!! We bought this house with a fan in my bedroom downstairs and there is also a fan in my daughters room upstairs-same type, the Hampton Bay. The remote works with both of the fans, which is fine, but for some reason the lights will go on at 1,2 in the morning when noone in our house is touching the darn thing!! Is it possible that the neighbors have the same fan and when thiers go on so does mine? Is it possible that I can switch something in the remote so its on a different frequency, like on a garage door opener? Also, where is the reciever located? In the fan itself? Please help!!

    I have the same problem, I have a Hampton Bay Eastridge 60"Ceiling fan w/ remote and the fan and both light will come on whenever they feel like it. The bewitching hour seems to be around the 11:00 p.m. hour and I have to fight with the remote going back and forth, me turning off the fan but it'll come right back on and me turning off the upper and or lower light and it'll come right back on!!! I can come home from work and no one is in the house and go in my bedroom and either the light is on or the fan is on, sometimes both. We've replaced the batteries in the remote but to no avail. We've had this problem since installing about 4 months ago.

    Same problem. I moved into a house with Hampton Bay 54-inch brushed steel fans in every room. If you use a remote in one room, it ends up powering the light and fan in the next room as well. So annoying. We'll randomly find lights on or fans running in rooms for no reason. Of course, the most annoying is when the light pops on in our bedroom at 1:30am. Not consistently, which is even weirder. I swear the timer is not set (as far as I can tell) but still, it happens. The Hampton Bay site is no help. It's poorly designed and seems unfinished. Can't find or access manual pdfs. Home Depot doesn't have instructions either. Haven't been able to find any online yet. I'm planning on going to a Home Depot and asking if I can get the instructions out of one of the boxes. In the meantime, the wall switch is off when we go to bed.

    Hi! I just finished taking apart my fan and found the 4 switches, so I flipped switch #1 and switch#3, and did the same in the remote, so hopefully this will take care of the problem! Thanks for your comments, glad its not just me......

I think I've figured it out. I got in touch with the manufacturer of Hampton Bay Fans, King of Fans. You can call them yourself at 800 283 6513. They said they hear about this problem all of the time. The thing is, if you have more than one HB remote control fan in the house, they can start interfering with each other - even though no one is touching any remotes at the time. Weird, I know. Another thing that happens is if your neighbor has a hampton bay fan on a remote, they may be triggering your fan. Also, apparently garage door openers can activate fans as well. Anyway, the rep said the solution is to get up into the fan base and find a series of four dip switches. Then take the batteries out of your remote and find a set of four switches. Or maybe its a set code. I'll find out tonight when I get home. What you need to do is make sure the combination code you set in the fan matches the code in the remote. She said the majority of the time this eliminates the "haunted fan" problem. If the problem persists, you may need to replace the receiver in the fan. I'm going to try it out tonight.

Hunter ceiling fan remote will not turn off light it just dims the light

Try this. Remove power from the fan. Remove batteries from the remote. Press butttons on remote (might be stuck). Apply power to the fan. Install batteries in the remote and try all functions. If this doesn't work, the remote may be defective or the remote receiver may be defective. I can tell you from my own experience I have a ceiling fan that loses its mind whenever there is a power outage. Has to be reeducated from scratch

The wire to the ceiling fan are meant to send voltage to the fixture only and are not usually wired to control both the light and the fan independently. In order to do that, you may have to pull another set of wires to the switch box and then connect them to the light circuit in the box where the fan is. In regards to the other wiring that you mentioned, it makes no sense that the wires go to the stove fan and the bathroom fan unless those wires are source wires that carry the incoming voltage.

Hi Fiona
Somewhere along the line from the aerial there must be a signal splitter that feeds the upstair and downstair terminals.
Try to find that splitter and switch the output to see if the problem goes from up to downstair.
If it does switch then you know the problem is with the splitter block, and if it stays the same then the problem is with the cable and/or the connectors that run downstairs.
Also the reason you get a pixellated(snowy) picture is because of signal loss during the length of the cable you ran downstair.
If running a cable downstair becomes the best option to fix your problem , then you could buy a cheap 10db signal booster/r.f amplifier to correct the signal loss and a cable splitter to feed both tv`s
That booster would be installed upstair in your case(near the source of the signal to be amplified).
I could send you a small diagram if need be. Hope this will help and Merry Chrismas
