Questions about Ceiling Fan Remote Controls
Why a Ceiling Fan Remote Module May Be Going Bad
Mike, from Parsippany, New Jersey asks:
I installed a new Hampton Bay ceiling fan and a new remote control. The fan and remote worked fine for 2/3 weeks and all of a sudden it stopped working. I changed the remote module and it worked for a second and again same problem. The fan works fine if I remove the remote receiver. Why is the remote receiver going bad? Is there any problem in wiring?
The first thing I would ask is if there is a dimmer switch that controls the power to the ceiling fan. If so then the dimmer switch must be replaced with a regular light switch. Dimmer switches may not be used to control the power to a ceiling fan that has a remote control setup.
