Question about Hampton Bay 52 In.Carriage House II in Polished and Satin Brass Finish Fan

2 Answers

Pull fan chain - first click goes to a high or highest speed, second click turns off - third click, back to that high or highest speed, fourth click, normal off - light kit ok. Sounds to me like the switch, but since I can't get it locally, just wanted to know if it sounds like a fan "motor" problem, or just the switch. There is a black, thin, rectangular "module" inside the light kit - if that has to do with the fan, I'll just look for a light kit replacement, since it just plugs in with a Molex connector. This is a Hampton Bay Carriage House II fan/light from 02-2006. Thanks

    This may help a little - the fan switch wires go into that "thin, black, rectangular module", then I think they go to the Molex that plugs "up into the fan unit" - maybe I shouldn't have even mentioned the light kit - let's stay fan focused.

  • stewartorgan Mar 14, 2011

    Sorry I ever used or mentioned the term "light kit" - remove 3 screws . . . and the "4 - light sockets, the light pull chain switch, the "fan" pull chain switch, the attached black module, and all associated wires terminating with the Molex connector ALL just plug into the fan portion attached to the ceiling - this led me to believe that this model "may" have been available as just a fan with an optional "light kit". Sorry about the "miss-speak" causing some confusion. So we must assume that the Fan is probably OK, and either the switch or the "modular speed controller" would "probably" fix the originally described symptom ??? Sounds logical - where would I locate/purchase, what you describe as "that thin module . . . comes with the switch" ???

    Don't need to move to another tech 'cause now johnjnail is addressing my technical issues - awaiting a reply from a posting directly to him - he identified the black, thin, rectangular module inside the "drop down light portion of the fan" as the "speed control module" - I think we're getting close !

  • stewartorgan Mar 14, 2011

    Sorry pctech1 - it's not a mis-wire (working for 5 years), and I mistakenly used the term "light kit" - johnjnail has me at the "switch, which comes with the black speed control module" - I asked him where/how to locate one - thx, so far.

    John - you seem to have targeted in on a "cure" - keep in mind that I haven't "hit the accepted" button on either of you yet (and you are now my first choice), however, I spent an hour this morning trying to locate the part(s) that the other guy gave me more info on. I haven't exhausted all source yet, but that takes my personal time, and will require several phone calls (he gave me part # & phone #'s). The internet has been no help at all. I'll keep everyone posted as I search out actually acquiring this part. Thanks for your patience - I wasn't advised that there was a "time frame" on a fix that has not occurred yet.

  • stewartorgan Mar 18, 2011

    Hey pcTech1 . . . end of story . . . couldn't locate the part or part # ANYWHERE - finally got time to call the phone #'s that YOU provided - First # waste of time (Home Depot) - Second # . . . I provided Model # of fan - she described the part to me (switch is currently unavailable) - got the black module "capacitor-type" speed controller ordered for $12 bucks (I didn't listen to the S

  • stewartorgan Mar 18, 2011

    This "guru" gave me 3 phone #'s to try AND the device Part # to try to locate locally or online - I was able to order the Part from one of the three phone #'s. It DID take me a week to get around to committing to the "phone portion" of this FIX - however, I chose to try to locate the part on the Web before talking to some Customer Service nit-wit. Well, this nit-wit (me) wasted hours of time, online "searching" when the answer was at the other end of a phone line ! Thanks pctech1

This sounds like a wiring problem, rather than the switch. If it worked before the light kit was installed, or even after the light kit was installed, you may have a bad switch. If the fan speed has always had the incorrect speed settings, there is probably a problem with the wiring to the Speed control switch.

    Since it was working before, it sounds like your Control Module has become faulty. It is made by Rhine, and is part number UC7058RY. I have been unable to find one available for purchase. I suspect you could contact Hampton Bay for replacement parts. Their contact information is:

The switch is a 3 position switch if it only goes to high i would suspect that the switch is bad, the light has nothing to do with the fan it has its own power circuit it just happens to be mounted on the fan, but the fan will work even if you remove the light kit.

    you should be able to get one from menards or home depot they have some in stock. you will need to remove the switch assembly ( make sure you kill the power before removing the switch ) and take it with you to match it up with a replacement. just rember that the new one may not look just like yours and thats ok they all do the same thing....goood luck and please if you are happy with the advice please change the fed back you left 4 thumbs up would be nice

    hay Stewart, because you have rejected my answer, your question has been locked to anther expert, and that is fine but if you are now happy with my advice i need you to now acept my answer and change the feed back or the other expert gets payed for this question, its not the money as much as the feed back any negative feedback can effect us in our standing with fixya i know this dosnt mater much to you but it is a point of pride to keep our standing's as high as we can, when we answer 100's of questions a mounth and and keep our feedback in the over 90% we can keep earning on fixya if we drop below 80% we no longer get payed to answer questions, and then we have to get reaproved and that was a pain the first time. so please help me out if you can it would be greatly appreciated.

    if you post a question to this thred the expert has 4 hours to respond ( and that can be a problem if you are on the west coest and the expert is on the east coast and it is late everone needs some sleep ) if the expert does not respond in the 4 hour time period then the question goes back in Q and any expert can then answer your question after 7 days the last expert to handle your question gets the pay, but as i said its more about the feed back, your question pays $2 to the expert so we dont fight over that. by the way did you go top Menards they keep some of the switches in stock check in the electronic parts department and the lighting department. and like i said the replacement may not look the same but they all do the same thing some times you have to remove the plug and hard wire the module to the fan motor.

Just put a brand new fan and have t3 diffrent speeds the highest speed goes more like a medium I think it should go faster then it is. Could the wires be wrong?? Please help!


Do you have a remote? If you do, put the fan on high with the remote then pull the chain on the fan until you get on high. Otherwise it could be your capacitor. fanman9952@aol.com

My hampton bay ceiling fan don't take second speed and third speed. Can somebody help me?


Most likely you need a new capacitor. When you buy low-end store brands, they use low-end parts. The capacitor is the black (usually) box with wires going to the pull chain switch.

I did not make a diagram when replacing the light switch


Red from switch goes to two blacks, blue from switch goes to two blacks and the black wire goes thru top of light and attaches to blue fan light wire. If you want a good fan, look for blade pitch(13 degree or higher)Or CFM's above 5500 on high.

Make sure your fan is on high with the pull chain switch. Push the remote Hi button then pull the chain until it's on the high speed, Then DO NOT use the pull chain. Same with light , Push light button on remote then pull chain until it's on then leave the chain alone. If that doesn't do the trick then you probably need a new receiver.

It's been awhile so you've probably quit by now, but if yo haven't , try this: Get up into the light bowl area nad look for the pull chain on the side of the housing. Pull it 2 times and it should put the motor into high speed. Click the #3 on the remote and see if it goes to high speed. If not, pull the chain and try again. Keep doing this until the motor gets into high speed. It should only take a few times at most.

Need a replacement, where do I get one?


If I understand correctly you have a 3-speed fan.
And you need a 3-speed replacement pull-chain-type switch

Lowes carries 3 speed fan switches in the light fixture department.
These switches have multiple wires.
At any given time, there is one-and-only-one wire that connects to power from wall switch.
Lets call this the Power wire.
As you pull the chain, the power passes through the switch and goes to one-and-only-one of the other wires.
The other wires connect to windings in the motor.
The different motor windings control fan speed.

The key to replacing the switch is recording where each wire went before you disconnect old switch.
Once you know which of these wires is the Power wire, then you can test other wires with a continuity tester.
You also know the pull-chain sequence is OFF - HIGH - Medium - Low
Mark wires in fan and mark wires on old switch.
Pull out old switch.
Use regular electrical tester to find which wire in the fan is the power wire (separate wires, turn on power and test each wire to metal part of fan)
Now test the switch wires.
The switch is out of the fan.
You marked the wires so you know which wire is power wire.
Put the continuity tester on the power wire.
Test power wire to each of the other wires.
Click the switch and test to each of the other wires. Mark which wire lights up continuity tester.
Click the switch and test again. Mark which wire lights up continuity tester.
Click again, until each wire is marked in the sequence.
When you click the switch and no wire lights up, then that is the Switch OFF position.
Do the same test on the new pull-chain switch.
Connect the wires to match your testing.

Ceiling fan stuck on low


in order for the remote control to work properly the fan has to be on its highest speed using the pull chain ... after setting the pull chain in the proper position you can tie up the chain or remove it to prevent others from changing the setting .. the remote will control the speed from then on ..

My hunter remote control ceiling fan doesn't go real fast. the highest speed is what a normal fan would do on medium. is there a fix?


if you have pull chain switches in addition to the remote control, your pull chain switch may be set to Medium, which would make the fan run on a maximum of medium speed.
