Hi,

Our celing fan with light has a remote that stopped working a few months ago. The battery has been changed but it still doesn't work. I don't see any company/model name on the fan but the remote says 'Hampton Bay Fan & Lighting company". The house is only 6 years old so the fan can't be older than that. Would anyone know how to fix this? Is there a customer service # that I could call. I can't seem to find the contact information / website by google-ing.

Thanks!

Jim D

NM2005 - hi, I have one of those remote-controlled ceiling fan/light fixtures in my home. It replaced another ceiling fan. When the installer put it in, he advised us not to turn off the fan/light by using the existing wall switch that controlled the previous fixture. He said doing so would eventually ruin the remote sensor that communicates with the fixture. We control it strictly via the remote control unit.

My wife bought the fan at H_ome D_epot so you should be able to get the customer service number and/or website info by asking the folks in the store working in that area. As far as getting the model/serial number off your unit, it's most likely on the base area where it attaches to the ceiling - meaning you'll have to pull the fixture down temporarily to get at the info. I'm certain you won't get any troubleshooting help from the manufacturer without the info.

I hope this gives you a little help - good luck! Jim D/West Point, VA
