Question about Vacuums

3 Answers

The indicator light on the remote control for my Hampton Bay ceiling fan/light stays on continuously and will not control the fan or light. This happened without warning when I went to shut off the light shortly after turning it on. I turned off the power to the fan/light and removed the battery in the remote to reset it with no success. I looked into the remote unit in the light/fan and couldn't see the code setting to be sure it was the same as the code setting in the remote unit. I can't see any issues with either the remote unit or the fan/light itself. Any suggestions?

    Well, I've taken the light/fan apart looking for the remote control. There's one part that I can see into that has the brand name of Rhine and a part number of REV-J7067F-03. It has 3 white wires, 1 black wire, 1 pink wire, 1 gray wire and 1 yellow wire coming out of it. I can see all of the capacitors and transistors in that part, but I can't see any dip switches. The other part inside seems to be sealed and I can't get into it. It a name of SH on it with a possible part number of CBB61 on it and has one red and one white wire coming out of it. I can't see any dip switches anywhere in these parts on the fan/light assembly so that I can check to see if they are on the same setting as the remote control.



    Do you have a diagram of where those dip switches would be inside the fan/light? Which of those two parts would I have to replace if needed?

    Which of the two parts inside the fan/light assembly is the receiver unit?

  • markp491 Mar 20, 2011

    Not one of the two electrical components inside of my fan/light looks anything close to the picture of the remote receiver. No wonder I can't tell which one it is! I'm still lost!

    I took the remote control apart and pulled out and made sure that the stoppers on the rubber buttons were all out. The red light stayed on even when the buttons were separated from the circuit board. I reassembled the remote control and the red light is still on. This didn't work either! Help!

    I purchased another Hampton Bay sensor and remote. I'm confused now with the wiring. The old sensor unit has two white wires (one is labeled "for light"), one gray wire, one yellow wire, one black wire and one pink wire.

    The new sensor unit has two white wires (one labeled " AC IN N" and one labeled "AL MOTOR N"), two black wires (one labeled "AC IN L" and one labeled "AL MOTOR L) and one blue wire (labeled "FOR LIGHT").

    There is also one blue wire not hooked to the sensor unit (labeled "FOR LIGHT"). I understand that the blue wire from the sensor unit must be hooked up to the blue wire separate from the sensor unit). Please tell me what other wires need to be hooked together to provide the correct hook up.

This happens when one of the switches on the remote is stocked up check all the push button switch and free the stocked up button.You need to open the remote case to check the rubber contact of the switches.Once there is a stocked up switch no other button will work until the button is free..good luck!

The control module in the light it self needs to be replaced.
the remote is not the problem. Your ceiling light will need to be serviced by an electrician (licensed).

If the fan does not respond to the remote control after setting the slide code switches, double-check the slide code switch settings between the remote and the receiver to make sure they match exactly.
But if all checked ok then,
Its the receiver fault.The receiver is got short and it needs to be replaced. The receivers at Home Depot, etc, will work as drop in replacements for any other 5 wire receivers. NOT for receivers that have 6 or more wires. You can also try by passing the remote receiver and see if that is helping. The remote receiver is in the ceiling canopy of the fan. Remove it and wire the fan as you would without it. click this link directly to know about the wirings and connections:--- http://www.ceiling-fans-n-more.com/ceiling-fan-wiring.php ------------

Each fan/remote combination is set to work on a specific frequency, much like tuning in a specific radio station. The fans allow you to set this frequency by means of a set of small switches called "dip switches". There is one set located inside the remote, and the other set would be position on the fan, with the remote receiver electronics. This would be either on top of the motor, or inside the switch housing or ceiling canopy. This switches "tune" the remote and fan (received) to the same "station" and therefore must be set to the same setting. If a fan is not responding to the remote you can check to make sure that the switches are set to the same setting in both locations, and/or try a different setting. They are also useful if you have two remote fans, you will want to be sure each fan is set different so the remotes do not interfere. Lastly, if some other wireless device is interfering with the fan (causing it to turn on and off seemingly at random) such as a garage door opener or cordless phone, you can try a different setting on the dip switches. If nothing is working then get the receiver replaced. You can get receiver from home depot store or from ebay sites.

This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Changing frequency on a remotely operated Hampton Bay Celing fan


Remove battery from remote and you should see 4 small switches. Write down the pattern they are in now. Then move them to a new pattern. Then take the bezel off of the fan (where the fan connects to the ceiling). Turn the bezel counterclockwise if you don't see any screws holding it on. Now look for a set of switches that look the same as the switches in the remote. Write down their current pattern. Now Set the switches to a similar pattern as you set on the remote. If the remote doesn't work after adjusting, set them back to original positions from the notes you kept. Good luck

I need to replace the remote control (UC7083T) of my Hampton Bay Sidewinder 54 Ceiling fan. Could you pls tell me where to buy one? Thanks


You can buy a fan remote at Home Depot, Lowe's,or Menard's basically any one of the big box stores. If they do not have the one used with your fan,you buy a universal remote. Follow the instructions in the box make sure you shut the power off as you may get shocked or burn up he control

My Hampton Bay ceiling remote model no. UC7030T does not work. How can I get another one. My fan will not work without it.


First, be sure you did not change one of the dip switches in the hand held unit while changing batteries. You would have to see if the switches in the hand held unit match the switch positions in the fan receiver.
This is one of the many sites you can go to for remotes:
http://www.lightinguniverse.com/fan-accessories_84.html
Hampton Bay fans are sold exclusively by Home Depot. I would check on line or stop by one of their stores to see if you can pick up a HB remote. Once you get a new remote you have to again make sure the dip switches are in the same position. Paul

in many of these remote controlled lamps you cant use the new spiral light bulbs .. you can only use standard incandescent lights .. if thats not the trouble then you may indeed have a bad controller (in the fan) .. there is probably at least a 90 day warranty maybe as much as 3 years .. make sure the wire nut power connections are secure inside the fan.. if one of the the wires in the fan are not making contact then you will see a similar problem .. once in a while i have seen strong external RF signals interfere with the controller but thats rare and usually doesnt last long ..

i would : 1. check all the connections .. 2. replace the light bulb to make sure its not flakey or the wrong type .. 3. try to get the fan replaced in warranty ..
