Remote doesn't work?

My hard wired in wall remote will not activate any functions on my fan. I have checked for power and all is fine. It worked great for 2 years then just stopped completely. I do notice that the red indicator light on the remote will barely glow for a second or two when a button is pushed. If you push the same or any other button again it will not glow at all. After 5 minutes it will work again but just once. How can I check the fan and the remote to see which is the problem?

    My remote doesn't work. I've changed batteries and the remote light still isn't coming on and it doesn't activate the fan. Purchased and installed less than 6 months ago.

Just installed a heller ceiling fan with remote, it works fine from the remote but the light nolonger works from the light switch


All the switch on the wall does is turn the power on/off. You have to do everything from the remote with the wall switch on.

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

I have a concord fan model 820AL-G I only get a signal from the fan when the wall controller is activated the fan will not function has anyone experienced this problem


Thinking the fan has to be on to use the wired wall control. If you pull the chain switch it is just turning the fan off and then neither will work. Just use the wall control or get fan with wireless remote maybe.

My ceiling fan does not work.It is a Hampton Bay. There is power.


Hampton Bay receivers are notorious for taking a dump, replace the remote. If you're just adding the remote... There will be 6 wires on the remote, a set of two (white and black) a set of three (white black red or blue) and a single small wire by itself. The single wire by itself is the Antenna wire, do not wire it to anything, or it will fry the board in the receiver.

Wall switch and remote quit working for fan and light


Simple things to check - sometimes the vibration from the fan will cause the wires to come loose. Drop the fan and make sure both wire nuts are secure - take the opportunity to check and make sure you have voltage (using a voltmeter or a 110v test light) at the junction box. Do you have lights on the fan? Do they come on? If you have power to the fan, something is amiss inside the fan such as a faulty speed switch or connection.

Fan with remote won't work with wall switch. I


I just recently purchased a hunter ceiling fan w/light and remote. Had it installed and wall switch would not work, only remote. I contacted Hunter company directly about this problem and I was told that they redesigned their fans with remotes so that only the remote works for turning off power to fan. The person who made that made that BRILLIANT change should be fired. So to those of you who own a newer hunter an product with a remote ne your wall switch will not work tat s te reason why.

Lights are on all the time, fan doesnt work, remote does not work


I have changed the remotes on 5 Hunter fans in the last 3 months. They have a problem with how some of them mount, that makes them drop down and vibrate loose. If you do not have a wall switch for it, you may want to go to pull chains, or just replace the remote. It is NOT the controller you hold in your hand, but the part in the fan. (never the easy way right?) The remote is not hard to change, but you DO have to let the fan hang from the holder on the ceiling bracket, It gets too heavy to hold while you change the remote.
All but one of the remotes I have changed, came from a mass market type of builder/handyman store, and they have just replaced the part at no charge.

Ceiling fan remote not working


It is certainly possible that the remote went bad -- after all, it is an electronic device, and is was "made in China". With that said, there are other possibilities:

* The receiver, which is what receives the signals sent by the remote control, could have died. In most remote-controlled fans, the receiver is located in the ceiling canopy (the decorative part up by the ceiling, which hides the wires). In other fans, it's located in the switch housing (the part of the fan to which the light kit attaches). Solution: try everything else on this list; if nothing works, replace the receiver. Universal replacements for most models are available at Home Depot and Lowes.

* A wire on that receiver could have come loose. Solution: check all wires for secureness.

* A wire in your wall or ceiling -- the wire which provides power to the fan -- could have come loose or been chewed through by a rodent. Solution: use a circuit tester to check whether there's power at the connections at the top of the fan, in the ceiling, where the fan connects to the building's wiring.

* A circuit breaker could have tripped or a fuse could have blown. Solution: check your circuit breaker or fuse panel.

* The DIP switches inside the remote control -- which set the frequency on which the control transmits -- could have been knocked out of position accidentally or by a child playing with it. Solution: check the code on the DIP switches on the receiver in the fan -- then, make sure the remote control has its DIP switches set the exact same way.

If none of the above work, then yes -- the problem is with the receiver or the transmitter (remote). The two are typically sold as a pair, and universal replacements are available at Home Depot and Lowe's.

Hope that helps! Feel free to ask for clarification if you need it!

Remote control ceiling fan


Possibly a bad circuit board in the ceiling fans remote function. I would suspect that the circuit board has a thermal issue where once warm it works fine. The most common fault that I have seen is a bad solder connection on the board. Pull the board from the fan and check all solder connections for cracks or dull solder. If you see any of these then reflow the solder connections. If this does not work you probably will need to order a new board from the manu.
