I can not find the manual to see if I can reprogram the remote...is there someplace to get codes for these units?
A SOLUTION TO REMOTE CONTROL PROBLEM
HAMPTON BAY, KING OF FANS
UPC# 082392552954 -maybe.
I HAD problems with my remote not working. I would turn on the switch and the fan would stay in one mode; light off, fan on slow.
But what fixed my problem was just RE-SETTING THE DIP SWITCHES in the remote itself. Not for the purpose of changing the frequency, but just making sure the switches were still firmly set in the on or off positions. Mine was up, up, up, down. So I took a small blade and moved each switch up and down 3 or 4 times... Made sure the switches were in the original positions and shazam! Working.
And make sure to have FRESH BATTERIES, Duracell's are the best in my book. There is a low battery indicator on the remote but if they are REALLY low the display still works but the low battery indicator does not.
(I did actually take down my fan and install it in another room in this process here, so there is a 5% chance this could have 'done something' to fix the problem too, but the set up was too easy.)
If you're thinking there may be a lot of dust in the fan, on the computer inside the fan, forget it. It does not get dirty. I had a pretty dusty room and the computer and electronics in the fan were in a plastic housing and very clean after being install for over 4 years, maybe like 5 or 6 years.
Hope that helps you guys.
