Question about Hampton Bay 52 In. White Redington III¿ Ceiling Fan w/ Remote Control & Light Kit

4 Answers

Older Model Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan: The Redington II w/Remote Control

Our Fan has absolutely no signal going to it all of a sudden after years of service. I have checked the DIP switches both on the Transmitter and the Receiver in the Fan. They are set exactly the same, the Remote has a brand new 9V in it, and the Red LED is on every time the button is depressed - no light to the unit, no fan action, and the switch on the wall is ON. I have tried shutting the power down, removing the battery, checking the switch, transmitter & receiver, with no response at all.
Can someone help me with what the problewn might be? Could the switch on the wall all of a sudden go bad? The only thing different is that a carpet cleaner guy switched the switch without knowing the fan needs the remote.
How do you reset this unit outside of what I've already done per the Owner''s Manual?

    I have 4 Hampton fans throughout my house that are same or very similar models (all white). The fans no longer work on three of the models. They have gone out over the last couple of years at different times. I am now forced to change out two of the fans in my kid's room bacause the lights are no longer working either (as of the last couple of weeks). The only fan/light that is fully functional is the one that is RARELY used in a basement room.

    • The remotes for all untis still work as I can test on working functions on the last two fans/lights.

    • The fan motors are gone on the three units; one fan still works but I do not know how long.

    • The lights on two of the units still work (on/off and dim/brighten); one of the other two sometimes come on but seem to go off after a minute or two.

    Any help is appreciated as I really hate to give up the remote control. If I cannot fix or get support on the present issues, I will abandon the idea of going back with Hampton Bay or the more expensive remote type units.

    I have a the Redington II by Hampton Bay purchased Aug 2000. The fan & light stopped working Nov 2003 & I ordered & replaced the transmitter. It has been over 10 yrs and the lights & fan quit a few days ago. Put a new 9V battery in the remote with not response from the fan. I'll try to order another motor, easy to install & hope to enjoy it for another 10+ yrs.

The wireless remotes have a little disk battery in the transmitter. Like a watch batter, go to the hardware and get one the same number type.

I have a Reddington IV model where the fwd/rev switch on the body of the fan broke and the fan will not spin at all. Went to HomeDepot and they gave me a phone no. 1(800) 654-0688 they asked for the UPC and SKU numbers which I did not have. I email them a picture of the fan and determined the manufacturer of my fan. They told me I was to be contacted by the mfg., but I was not at my desk when they called. So far it all seems positive. I will post with the outcome :-)

    I'm back with good news. I got a call from the fan company and they located the broken switch. They are sending me a replacement part for $7.99 with shipping. Can't wait. By the way the UPC number is located on the top body part of the fan on a label. Very hard to read, but got my camera and took a close up picture. Good luck to all!

I have the Redington II ceiling fan and the transmitter will not turn off the lights. I see many people are experiencing similar problems. Remote is fine because the fan works forward and reverse and speen can be set; however, the lights will not turn off.HELP!!

Posted on Apr 02, 2010

Ironically, i am having the same problem with TWO different Reddington's in my house.

One is brand new, just hung a few weeks ago, the other is about 3 years old.

The new one -- the lights are stuck in a constant dim, bright, off, dim bright off, and the fan wont turn at all.

The old one, the lights wont come on and the fan will only spin slow.

Both failed within a day or two of each other, and this is driving me nuts.

I thought it might be the remotes, so I took both remotes and pulled the batteries out of each, but that didnt do anything.

If anyone else is having this problem, please post.

SOURCE: Hampton bay ceiling fan with built-in remote receiver

No fan disassembly, just the houseing mounted to the ceiling. the transmitter is in there. U can try and match it to a new remote or look for some number on the transmitter. However u can usually buy a new remote and transmitter for 30 bucks and just swap out the transmitter. They come labeled and r pretty easy to install.

the reciever is under the cover for your fan to the ceiling. Try pulling the switches on you fan then using the remote after each try. then check your wall switches,,, it could be wired to one.

How can the remotes be set to separately control 2 fans in the same room?

Most have four dip switches in the transmitter & receiver. You need to match-up the dips in both for one fan. The dip switches in the transmitter are in the battery compartment.

How do I get the remote to work fan and light

There are dip switches in the fan and in the remote that need to be set to the same numbers. You can set them to whatever you want, as long as they match. If these numbers don't match it won't control your fan.

Here's a few lines from the user manual:
"IMPORTANT! Before installing this control, check the factory dip switch settings. Refer to Figure 1. Be sure the dip switch positions of the transmitter and the receiver match, or the ceiling fan will not function."

Here's a link to the PDF manual, which has an explanation and a figure in the middle of where you can locate these dip switches on the transmitter and the receiver both.

I need a hunter's ceiling fan remote part# 85095-01 can you help me?

To my knowledge there are not parts available for remotes. Have you checked to be sure that all your dip switches are coded identically, receiver and transmitter. There are no servicable parts on the remotes. You can purchase a new remote & receiver at Home Depot for $29.00. Be sure you have 120 volt at your fan and check your remote batteries.

We installed a 27185 remote kit in a hunter fan, and factory settings. The fan light goes on and off by itself. I changed the dip switches( matched them to the remote to the controller), and the fan and...

I have had the same problem with the light coming on intermittently by itself. At first I also could not change the settings and have the remote work with the new settings. But I found out that when you change the dip switch of the receiver you must turn off the power using the wall switch or the circuit breaker and turn it back on before the receiver will use the new dip setting. I am still waiting to see if the light will come back on after changing the dip switches from 1-on, 2-on, 3-on, 4-off to 1-off, 2-on, 3-on, 4-on and the remote's jumpers from 1-jumpered, 2-jumpered, 3-jumpered, 4- no jumper to 1-no jumper, 2-jumpered, 3-jumpered, 4- jumpered.

No dip switch in Hunter 27157 remote control.

Those aren't transistors in the transmitter they are jumpers. Match the jumper settings with your dip switch settings in the receiver. You can move the jumpers in the transmitter using a small needle nose pliers. An open jumper in the transmitter equals an OFF setting on the dip switch in the receiver.

Good luck!

First check the fuses,the switches, sometime corrosion can cover the contact and check also the thermal fuse.......

Dip switch settings

I've had the same problem w/ light turning on/off. Called customer support and 3x waited 6 minutes to leave message and get no call back. Finally got a human and she told me to change code in receiver and transmitter. This was no easy task as the fan is very high up and the stupid thing needs to come down to adjust the receiver. Changed the setting and it worked for two days until it started back with the lights turning on at all hours. I noticed there's a toggle switch in the remote that is not explained in the manual. It says CFL on one side and INC on the other. The light will NOT dim if it's in CFL and tonight is the first time I've switched it to that setting. I'm hoping this is some kind of lockout for random signals going out of the remote...It would be nice to have a proper explanation in the manual. I should have gone with another Casablanca fan--Hunter products are lame.
