You need a new receiver for the remote. Call 1-888-830-1326 and you must have the model # of the fan. Model # is 5 digits starting with a 2.

Most likely, the dimmer control has failed and needs replacing. Would be good to check its output voltage first.

From your description the problem is the bulb holder. The copper contacts that are inside the holder have been overheated from long time use and they are also deform and sometime also the wires melts which are connected to the holder.

So now you need to replace the whole bulb holder bad you need to check also the wiring to it if they look ok.

Well, you can take it down and replace the switch. Most decent hardware stores have generic internal switches. You could unscrew the bulb a little every time you want it off.
You could mount a wall switch for the unit and live with the fan and light always being on at the same time.
The pull-switch is not too difficult to replace, just seems scary. disconnect the unit from all power and do the work at the table.
Keep all fasteners in order of removal, and make notes or label parts with tape as you disassemble. Take a picture of the switch when you get it open and show it to the person at the store. Bring home the new switch and swap it in one wire at a time.
Reassemble, remount, and sew on your DIY achievement patch:) Farmerbear at FixYa.com

It seems that the motor armature is burn .
If you can fix it by yourself , then dissemble the unit, remove the motor. Loosen the bolts running from end to end of the motor and with emery cloth, clean the small metal plates on the end of the armature. They should be bright copper color. If the armature is burnt, they will be dull brown. The other thing is to replace the brushes in the motor . I'm 80% sure that this is what the electrician did last year but you couldn't see that because you were absent . Call the electrician again and ask him to replace the motor if the solution above didn't work .

Are the manual switches on the fan in the 'on' position?

Select the maximum fan speed on the remote and then operate the manual switch on the fan. Set that to the highest speed then control it with the remote.

Same theory applies to the light.

If this is not the problem then the remote receiver on the fan is probably faulty.

mcdevito75 here, Generally, The Fan switch itself is a pull chain type switch on the fan motor itself, this is a fan speed switch, NOW! also generally the reverse fan swtich is another shorter pull chain switch just about an inch away from the Fan Speed switch or the longer pull chain switch on the fan motor. This reverse switch can also be a toggle type or slide type switch but will be close to the fan speed switch on the fan motor itself.
