    The model fan I originally selected to report my problem was not the fan I am having a problem with. My model was not among the list provided. So my question is does the solution sent to me apply to all ceiling fans or just the model I incorrectly listed? The model fan I have is a Hampton Bay,54" 5 bladed fan called the "Callaway II." It has a model number of 526 062.

    Will the same sloution for fixing it still apply? I have not tried yet.

    The fan I described in my initial note is not the fan I have. I could not find my fan in your list so I just picked one to see what kind of a response I would get. I'm not going to start working on a fan with advice about a different fan.

    My fan is a Hampton Bay 54", 5 blade "Callaway II" Model 526062. If someone has some advice on how I can get this operating at full speed I would appreaciate it.

Need code for Concord ceiling fans

Ceiling fans usually come with dedicated remotes. So not sure what purpose would be served by having the code. These are not TV remotes where you can program other audio visual devices like DVD player, amplifier etc.
For the concord ceiling fans you can purchase one of three remote controllers shown on this site. You also have to buy the corresponding receiver unit that sits on top of the fan rod near the ceiling.

If I recall, this fan has no external switches that can be operated - all of the fan and light functions are controlled by the remote alone. If this is indeed the case, there is little that can be done outside of hoping the problem is with the remote itself. If that is the case, replacing the remote is likely to be cheaper and less labor intensive - that is if you can find one.

From what I have read, this fan is no longer in production nor available for purchase. You may have luck bringing the remote to Home Depot - the main (possibly the exclusive) distributor of the Hampton Bay brand to see if they have fans on display that make use of remotes for fan and light control. If so, try to see if all your remote functions work. If you find that the reverse function no longer works - you should ask the sales associate about how to go about ordering a replacement remote. If the remote fails to work at all, you can 1) try a "shot in the dark" about ordering a an exact replacement remote - with the hopes that the remote itself is defective - rather than the paddle fan, or 2) start new by buying a new paddle fan with hardware switches for fan speed, direction and light operation AND a remote control module to perform a whole replacement of your existing paddle fan.

The "add on" remote control gives you many of the benefits of the remote only fan - but also provides a "back up" way to operate the fan should the remote or module fail. Had this been the style you have currently, you could operate the fan by hand until the remote and / or ceiling module was replaced.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.

Hello Brother,
Hang your ceiling fan on the Quick Connect fan bracket and wire the ceiling fan according to the manufacturer's instructions. The three wires coming from your ceiling should match the three wires coming from your ceiling fan: black (positive or hot), white (neutral or negative) and green (ground wire).

Use the high, medium and low keys on the remote to adjust the Hampton Bay fan speed, then use the light key to dim the light and the off key to turn off the fan.

For REMOTE CONTROL FANS you cannot use with any variable speed or slide wall switches. The remote control function must be used with on & off switch outlets only.

Hunter ceiling fan-just installed -possible speed control problem

Sounds like the fan is defective. All internal wiring from the switch to the motor is factory installed. The fan has power going to it. Just to make sure, double check the wiring from the ceiling fixture to the fan.
Problem could be a faulty switch on the fan or faulty motor(bad winding for med. speed). Try reverse switch on the fan to operate the opposite direction and see if medium speed works. If medium does work in opposite direction, it pretty much points to a defective fan. In any case, unless you discover that the ceiling wires were reversed going into the fan, I'd say new fan to the returns dept.

Casablanca fan speed problem

If this fan has a pullchain that also controls the fan speed, and you have a remote, the pullchain has to be set for the highest speed. If it is set at medium or low, it will mess with the remote operation. Note: usually high speed is the first pull after the "off" position.

Sounds like the remote receiver units (located where the mains connect to the fans) took a surge and have failed.
