If you take the fan down and remove the guard exposing the guts (wires) you can rewire the unit to bypass the remote sensor unit. Replace the switch on the wall with a ceiling fan dimmer switch. This way speed can still be controlled. If the fan has lights you will have to wire them in with the fan, so they both come on when you hit the switch...unless you have a pull chain.....you can also contact Hampton Bay and tell them the remote was broke when you bought it and they will send you a new one.
I have a redington II, the reciever went bad and I am trying to replace it. The wires coming out of the fan are red, pink, grey and yellow. How to wire?
Obviously not. You'll have to work it manually
