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