Question about Hampton Bay AC438-VPW 52'' Vintage Pewter Fan

1 Answer

Remote calibration I just installed 5 of the same fans in one large room. They are working fine except the remote control is not calibrated to all the fans resulting in uneven lighting levels I tried pointing at each separate fan but they cannot be isolated. Any ideas?

I installed three fans in the same room and one remote ran all three. In order to get the dimmers all to bring the lights up and down together, I changed the dip-switches in the fan housing so that the remote would only work one fan at a time. I then brought the dimmer lights all the way to bright. After all the lights were equally bright, I again altered the dip-switches so that all three and the remote were identical. The remote then dimmed all three lights equally.

Can't turn off fan when light is on


Not sure, but if its a new installation, I would say that the wiring has been done incorrectly. Ceiling fans with lights should be able to work independently. both on / off or 1 on, the other off.

We install 2 fans in differents rooms, after a few


There is a small opening on the top of the fan with four small (DIP style) switches. In order for the remote to work, both the fan and remote must have the same combination in the switches. Remove the battery cover from the remote to have access to the switches, then using a small tool (a ball point pen will work just fine) set the switches to the same combination both in the remote and the fan. For example: If you set the remote to: off, off, on, on; then the fan should also be: off, off, on, on. You can set the remote for the other room with a different combination as to avoid any interference between the two. Please rate this solution if it was helpful. Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!

Sounds like you could have a problem with the fan....but there is also an equaly good chance it's the wiring of the fan. Perhaps a loose connection. If you are not familiar with checking electrical connections, you probably need to call an electrician to check the wiring SOON, before there is a short. If all connections are good, then you will know it's the fan (or the remote receiver on the fan).
Hope this helps!

Fan is Erratic


Ceiling fans with wireless remote controls have an electronic receiver installed in the fan, which controls the light, dimming, and fan speed. Sometimes the receiver goes bad and needs to be replaced. If you have had any power outages or power surges, they may have fried the receiver. I've noticed that my ceiling fan light turns on when the power is restored after a power outage. Now, whenever my power goes out, I shut off the light switch that powers my ceiling fan so It doesn't experience a surge to to the controller when the power comes back on. I've purchased new receivers on eBay and Amazon to replace my blown remotes and receivers.

Remote control


in the remote and the fan the little blue box is called a dip switch
you will have to open fans base to access the remote power sender
on both the fan and remote the dip switches have to match in order for the remote to work the fan properly
or your signal will never make it to remote box
