    Ray – By passing the remote control module would depend on the exact ceiling fan make and model. If it is not working properly then I would go back and double check all the connections. Also make sure the battery in the remote control is good.

    Lights work but no fan ,from wall switch. Remote won’t do anything. Can i jump out the module in the fan and just operate the fan from the pull chain?
