Question about Hampton Bay 24750 Huntington III Ceiling Fan

Remote control stopped working

The remote control for this fan will not start, stop, change speeds or turn the light on or off. I replaced the battery in the remote, but still no luck. It's the orignal remote and it will turn my TV on and off. I suspect the fan may have seen a transient power surge and zapped something.

    Neither the remote control and the pull on and off switch works. The night before the fan was working fine. This afternoon the the fan will not come on. Perceived no electric power. Check fuse box all the circuit breakers are on and working ok.

    My Hampton Bay fan/light model U0707ST fails to respond to the remote except to turn the light on or off. I have not been able to get the fan to work for a long time. What a waste. I think the interface is OK or I wouldn't be able to turn the light on with the remote. Any ideas?

Under the dome (where the electrical connections are) is the receiver unit for the fan. It could be that it is no longer working. Also the remote may have dip switches to change the frequency channel (sometimes located behind the batteries) check that these have not been changed or check they correspond to the receiver unit on the fan.

My Hampton Bay ceiling fan runs only on high speed and the remote has stopped working even after changing the batteries. Does Hampton Bay have a life time warranty?

Yes, look up and get their contact number from them. It sounds like your transmitter (Remote) has failed. If it were the receiver the fan would most likely not work at all.

Need instruction page for the Hunter light/fan remote control

There is a battery in the hand held remote and another battery in the receiver which gets tucked into the ceiling mount cover. Remove the ceiling cover and you will see the battery there, usually a 12 volt battery.

The upp/down slide is a dimmer.

In the event that changing the batteries doesn't solve your problems, Hunter makes replacement remote sets, available at Home Depot, lowes, etc and usually around twenty dollars.

Ceiling fan with light and remote stopped working

It's most likely the receiver for the remote (transmitter) -- it's located under the cover at the top of the fan -- will need replacing.

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.

Remote Control

Change the remote control batteries. Because of the motor construction, it needs to turn on in the highest speed setting. This is why it defaults to the high speed mode. Put new batteries in the remote and that ought to fix it.
