I just had a Hampton Bay ceiling fan with light fixture installed. (Actually the model is an Almeida purchased in Home Depot, but I haven't been able to find this model on the web.) The fan operates by remote only. The remote works the fan speed and light but does not reverse. I would appreciate any advice. The fan is set for winter, so we are sweating it out! Thanks for any help.
Just reporting that I called Hampton Bay about the remote not working to reverse the fan. I was told that I needed to have the fan running on low and then press reverse on the remote control. If that doesn't work, customer service told me to press reverse while running the fan on medium. (Some fans are set to reverse on low and others on medium.) Nowhere in the manual is this addressed. I had been pressing reverse with the fan turned off, which seemed to me a logical thing to do. Live and learn.
I have an Emerson CEling Fan with Remote Model CF252 that was stuck in reverse.
I tried everything to get it to reverse. I eeven took it down and dismanteled it. The solution was the the celing fan had to be spiinning at its lowest speed in reverse and then use the reverse button on the remote. Go figure!

in your ceiling box should be three wires. a red goes to the three way switches, a black goes to the hot and the white is the neutral. the fan wires are black, blue and white. since you have a remote, connect the [fan] blue & black together with the [line] black. connect all white wires together. the remote will now ramp up your lights from off to full on and the fan remote will let you choose lo med high and off. just tape up the red wire in the box.
