Question about Hampton Bay 24002 Ceiling Fan
Posted by monaleblanc on
My fan does not have a reverse switch for sure so I scoured the net and got no real answer. I did come accross a comment that said that it worked internally at the remote box in ceiling. Here is how I finally figured it out after about 6 months of searching. Put the fan on high, Turn wall switch OFF, Hold the HI button on remote, Turn switch back on. IT WORKS!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sparq

Thank you SO much!! It worked for us too!!!! Unbelievable!! =)
It worked for me too!! Thanks you sooooo much. I was going crazy trying to figure out how to do that!
Pls I do I change mine, my fan has no remote.
didn't work for me. :(
It worked me but I had to press Medium speed button instead of High.
turn "on" the wall switch, then "press" and "hold" the "high" button on the remote (fan is on high speed), then turn the wall switch "off", then "release" the "high" button on the remote. Then turn "on" the wall switch and then "press" the "high" once on the remote.
Worked for my Hampton Bay San Juan fans by following steps as outlined by Albert Lim. Had to press 'high' AFTER turning switch 'on', not before.
Didn't have the remote, but this worked on the wall switch. Yay!
Had a power cut and when it came back on the fan reversed itself. This Worked for me with the medium button! Thanks a lot!!
Hi I have the universal remote with no high or medium just two arrows I have tried the upper arrow, the fan button and nothing has worked :( please help!
I tried your suggestion and it worked for me. Thank you!
Thank you, it worked.
If you have the remote control with out reverse bouton, just open the remote control and there is a contact just below the fan on/off bouton. Turn on the fan, use the same keypad to touch that contact with out pad and the fan will reverse. That orphan contact is the reverse bouton. The original remote has that bouton in there and the old one does not have a pad bouton for it but below the plastic there is a contact for it.

SOLVED: I have a Hampton Bay 54" ceiling fan (pewter color with leather coating), and it has no reverse switch either. It was running, but in the opposite direction I wanted. Out of the box it came with a remote wall switch that must be installed in the wall control box, as the fan's speed and reversal is controlled by a relay inside the fan. I haven't found a way to get this relay to "flip" without using the signal from the original remote. They wanted $70 for a new remote, the fan only cost $90~! Fark that!
However, if you lost this switch, there is another mod, if you open up the fan's housing, you'll find Black, White and Blue wires going into a small black box circuit box containing a green board with some capacitors. There is also a separate smaller box containing a small capacitor that says "4.5 uF" with red and white wires leading out of it. There are also four wires: Gray, Pink, Red and Yellow. You can rewire the fan thusly to use either no remote (always on) or use an aftermarket remote this way:
1, Black to Gray and Pink, (twist all 3 together)
2. White to Yellow and "Capacitor >> Red" (to do this, cut and use the white lead that leads to the capactor (leave the red lead connected to the capacitor. Don't cut the red wire.
To reverse direction, just reverse Black and White above. This works, you're in a fixed direction, but you will have speed control if you use one of those aftermarket remotes.

If your having to look this up like I did, I just recommend buying a new/different ceiling fan. Hamilton is cheap and because of that fact, they make it super user unfriendly. I have done lots of research, even tried rewiring the device. I still came up short, and my ceiling fan did not come with a remote (I bought literally the cheapest one I could find). Thus said, I figured that investing another $100 for a fan that actually had a flip switch would rather be worth it. I live In the hot state of Texas and of all spots, in Houston. We have wicked heat and humidity. Obviously the perfect equation for being miserably hot. I love where I live but having a fan that cannot switch from sucking to blowing is a huge pain.

Some fans come with a wall switch that replaces your light switch and the control is on this. If you can take the dome off the fan and see the wires there will be 4 wires. U can also buy a universal switch if some one tossed it away. If this doesn't work try getting a new fan, I install lots a of cieling fans and these days they all have the switch in plane sight.

SOURCE: I have a Casablanca Intelli touch ceiling fan.
My fan operates the same way. To reverse it, turn it on a low speed. Then, turn it off and on, then off and on again, quickly. You should hear a series of beeps, and the blades will slow down and then reverse. You may have to play a bit with the timing of the off/on/off/on sequence to get it right but you should be able to get it fairly easily.

SOURCE: Fan won't reverse to counter clockwise
I had a hampton bay fan that absolutely did not have a revers switch on the fan anywhere! MOST fans bought today will reverse. I was not about to give up. I scoured the net for an answer and could not find anything to help. I did however find a comment somewhere that said it could be done internally. After about six months I decided to search again (now). Nothing... so I started playing with the remote and the wall switch and Shazaam! I figured it out on my hampton bay fan. Turn the fan on high... Turn the wall switch off.... wait until the fan is pretty slow in rotation... hold the HI button on the remote.... Turn the switch back on. IT Worked for me! Hope this helps someone. SparqMark

SOURCE: Can't find switch to reverse direction (24002)
I found a pdf of the manual on "KingOfFans.com" and there was a graphic showing the location of the switch. It is on top of the motor underneath the small bulbs in the top section of the fan. It is really rather difficult to get to and not the best design but I found it and it worked.
