Hampton Bay Wireless Ceiling Fan Remote Control

By: Jodi Marks

The Hampton Bay Wireless Remote Control for ceiling fans can be used to control the fan and lights on many different brands of paddle fans. To install, turn off the power to the fan, attach the controller to the wiring, and you’re ready to go.

The remote operates up to 30’ away from the fan. It includes a three-speed fan control, and light control that can be used on dimmable incandescent bulbs or CFL and LED bulbs.

The Hampton Bay Wireless Remote Control is available at The Home Depot.

Jodi Marks: Installing a ceiling fan with a light kit is another great lighting option for your home. And if you are going to go to the time and expense of installing a ceiling fan, think about this. This is a neat little addition to it.

This is a handheld wireless remote for your ceiling fan by Hampton Bay. Now, you don’t have to have a Hampton Bay ceiling fan for this to operate, because it operates a variety of brands. The nice thing about this is you can be 30 feet away from your ceiling fan and still operate it. Because, think about it, usually your electrician will wire your overhead fixture in your room to have two switches, one for the fan and one for the light. Or if you weren’t as fortunate, you had an electrician that maybe just had one switch at the door, and it would control the light and the fan at the same time. But with this remote control, it doesn’t matter how it was wired at the wall. You can control it with just a click of a button.

Now, you can dim incandescent lights, and there’s a setting for that. Or if you don’t want to dim your lights, say you’re using LED or fluorescent, all you do is you use another setting. And you can just turn the light on and off.

Either way, you’ve got master control right here. And who doesn’t need another remote control right there at their disposal!

    Denise, these remote receivers don’t last long.

    Suggest you just replace the receiver and the remote.

    I purchased a Hampton Bay Light/ceiling fan with a remote several years ago. I love the fan and the fact that it is controlled by remote, however, it has no chains or back up to the remote and for some reason I can no longer control the operation of my fan/light. I have replaced the batteries in the remote control, I also purchased a new remote and still cannot control the light or fan speed. The light is on and I can turn it off at the switch but there is no way to change fan speed or have the fan on but turn the light off. Do you have any suggestions?

    Hi, Philip,

    We recommend contacting the manufacturer for product-specific questions.
    Usually, we’d share that link here for your convenience, but we can’t find an official website for Hampton Bay!
    You should check the owner’s manual for a telephone number to reach customer service.

    Good luck!

    My Hampton Bay ceiling fan remote control unit failed to control the fan. I purchased a replacement hand held remote, set the dip switches per the original unit. the control still failed to control the fan. The receiver dip switch settings are positioned same as the remotes and all wiring is connected and secure. I assumed the receiver may have failed and sought a replacement. Couldn’t find my model: UC7067RK. Will another receiver model replace mine ? Also will my remote unit , model: UC7083T work with a replacement remote? Note: my fan is 3 speed with a light and lacks a reverse. Thank you.

    I installed 2 ceiling fans that operate off one wall switch and each fan has the remote switch mounted with the unit. The fans both operate the same – on/off and same speed. The lights operate just the opposite. If I hold the switch to brighten one light, the other light reacts the opposite by dimming. Is there anyway to get the lights to operate the same?

    My remote is very hard to get to work. Pressing it hard or lightly doesn’t matter. It may be getting too old and the fan works perfectly . I am wondering if I can get a replacement one. The number on the remote control is 248723.
    Thank you
