Having a remote problem? Try these steps first:

1. Does the remote have a light that turns on or glows when you press a button on the remote? If not, try the following:

  • Replace the batteries. Do you get a light on the remote now when you press a button? If not,
  • Check the programming. Is there any special programming to sync your remote with the fan? Is there a button on the fan? Check the manual that came with your fan.
  • Check the dipswitches. Are they both set the right way? The remote has dip switches on the back of the remote, possibly under a panel. The fan would have dipswitches inside the fan motor housing.

  • The receiver on the fan may be bad.

Dip Switch Problems with Hampton Bay Remote

If your fan comes on by itself, or if you have two fans that both get turned on by the same remote, than you need to change your dipswitches. On the back of the remote, as well as in the fan housing, you’ll have a set of dip switches. These are switches that can be either pushed to a 0 or 1 position (up or down). In order for the remote to communicate with the fan, the dip switches both need to be set in the same direction.

If there is no light that comes on the remote at all, then it probably would be a good idea to replace the remote. If you have a Hampton Bay fan, then you should get a Hampton Bay remote to replace the existing.

  • If you have a Hampton Bay fan that works with a remote, and your fan is less than 5 years old, a universal Hampton Bay remote should work with your fan.
  • If your fan has never worked with a remote, you can’t just buy a remote and it will work with it. If your fan uses pullchains, you’ll have to continue using pullchains.

If you cannot find your manual, try searching for it online. Worst case scenario, go to the home depot community support forums on the Internet and post a question.

Replacement Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan Remotes

Please note: Not all of these replacement remotes are manufactured by Hampton Bay (they are not necessarily first party remotes). If you are looking for first party remotes, meaning they are made by Litex (the manufacturer of Hampton Bay), look for the logo on the remote to show it’s from Hampton Bay. You can also try contacting Litex directly to ask them where you can find the original remote that is manufactured by them, for your specific Hampton Bay ceiling fan.

This one costs $22, but it’s actually Hampton Bay first party. It has the logo on it and comes from Hampton Bay (or Litex). Some notes about this remote – it’s not a universal remote, meaning it’ll work only to replace Hampton Bay’s UC7078T remote. If you use any other remote, this won’t work. Also, this is only the remote – no receiver included here. The remote does come with a wall mount but – there’s no battery! You need to buy a 9 volt battery for it.

This one is also very well priced at $18 USD – which is great, and it’s a first party remote stamped with the Hampton Bay logo. A few things to note that Hampton Bay wants you to know. This remote isn’t universal, so it’ll only work with your fan if your fan works with a Hampton Bay UC7083T remote. There are buttons for an up light and downlight – there is no reverse function on this remote. A wall mount comes with this remote also.

  1. I have 2 ceiling fans that the remote receiver went bad (hurricane Ian). The model # is Harbor Breeze MR161A. Where can I get a replacement?


  2. Hello,
    I have a madison 52 in ceiling fan and replaced the battery of the remote several times. Yet, the battery doesn’t last for just a couple days. I tried different brand batteries. What it the problem?

  3. My remote seemed to stop working suddenly to my Hampton Bay fan . I pulled the chains, but it’s not turning. I changed the remote battery- still doesn’t work. Shouldn’t the chain start it to turn?

  4. Hi!
