Remote to fan won't work

I bought my house several years ago and there is no instruction book for my Hamptom Bay fan. The light comes on at the switch, but everything else operates from the remote. I have a new battery in it and the light comes on in the remote when I try to change the fan speed or dim the lights, but nothing happens. 
The only model # I can find is on the remote. Model: FAN-HD FCC ID: L3HMAY97FANHD
Do you have any solutions or is there a instruction manual I can get for this. It is a good fan and I hate to replace it. Thanks.

    Depending on the fan, you can simply wire in a new receiver at the top of the fan where it hangs from the ceiling, if needed. A new controller will come with that. Home Depot or Lowes has these aftermarket units with instructions included. . First, take the cover from the fan (at the ceiling) down and see if there is a remote receiver there. If not, the dip switches you will need to check are on the fan itself somewhere. use the dip switch settings you find to set the remote.

Instalation tips, no manual with used fan

Hi, The bracket is like a cup with the downrod fitting into in with a ball and socket type arrangement. When the downrod ball is in the socket there is enough room to slide the receiver in, fold the antenna over the receiver when you put it in. It does not need to stick out. The whole thing is covered with the bracket cover and nothing shows. Good Luck, this should Fixya!

Hampton bay fan with remot problem

You can try the universal receiver. The white, black, and green wires are the house wires. The receiver must match to these on one side. The wires on the other side go to the fan/lights. It is possible that one of these has come loose. If you try the universal, make sure the dip switches are in the same positions on both.


Take the fan down, and remove the receiver completely, from house wires and fan. (Make sure the breaker is off first!) Then wire the fan directly to the house wires. The blue wire on the fan is for lights. Wire it with the black wire in the same wire nut.

I'm assuming you have a wall switch that powers the wires coming from the ceiling.

By the way, I have never seen anyone control two fans with lights with one receiver. Usually each fan has its on.

Instruction Manual

Hampton Bay is carried by Home Depot. You must have a Home Depot near you.. ( everyone else does).They should be able to make a copy of the manual for your specific fan. I'm sure if you contact Hamptom bay directly by going to and selecting their contact us menu, you should be able to get the information from them. The question is about why your fan motor isn't operating and it's pretty simple. You either do or don't have power getting to the motor, if you do .. then you may have a bad motor or it is mechanically bound up.. Are you sure it has power? If it does, are you sure that power is getting to the fan wire in its junction box? If it does, is the fan mechanically bound up ( meaning that the blades can't be rotated by hand? ) Those are the fan basics you need to get resolved.. Most fans are wired pretty much the same way ( black is hot, blue is tied to hot if you have a light fixture/fan combination, white is neutral and attaches to all white wires in fan junction box, green is ground and should be connected to the metal housing of the fan. This may differ slightly if you have a remote control set up but in general, that is how it is wired.. Good luck.. and hope this helps you identify the problem.. Fan or Power to the fan,,,

Remote to fan won't work

This is a known problem with the remote receiver in these fan units. There is a TRIAC that controls the dimmer function (part BTA08-600C) and is attached to the metal bracket sticking out of the yellow plastic receiver housing. When this fails, the light is on all the time. You can buy the replacement part from Newark electric ( for 83 cents. If you aren't good with a pencil soldering iron, get someone to replace it for you. Takes about 30 minutes.
