I have a radio transmitter model#hbrc hand held, it works my ceiling fans and there is no other way to turn them on or off, I need another one any ideas?
changed yhe battery
A fan remote is 2 parts. Does this control 1 fan or more than 1?
Are the fans currently on or off? Do the lights turn on if there are lights?
this remote controls two fans, both are currently off. and yes it controls the lights on the fan to. nothing works right now?
are you still working on it?
am I doing something wrong because im not getting any feedback?
I would really like some feedback? I dont know if your still working on my problem or not
Do you know for sure that the power is on to the receivers in the fans? is there a Switch somewhere or just the breaker that will control the power to the fans?
I do not know if there is power to the receivers, but I did check the breakers, is there a way to check the receivers and where are they?
In many cases the receivers are above the canopy of the fan at the ceiling. If you have a tester you can verify there is power there. You can use either a volt Meter or a non contact tester. Do you have anything available to check for power here? On another note did anything happen to the remote? Did the battery come out of the transmitter and possibly the code was changed?
It is very unlikely both receivers would go out at the same time so checking the transmitter and the power are the only things common to both fans. Since it is both lights and fan motors that do not work it could be either the power or the transmitter.
thank you for your help, I think im on the right track, my only other question is how do i get the transmitters back on the same code?
Take out your battery and see if you don't see some dip switches in the battery compartment. These must be set the same as on the old one IF they have not been changed already. I would first check for power because that does not involve buying new remotes. Since there are 2 fans is there another transmitter for the fans? Usually each fan has it's own transmitter. If the receiver is inside the fan, a fan with both up light and down light, the dip switches should be visible on top of the fan motor area. Feel free to keep asking questions if you need additional assistance on this. I'm here to help. I have to run out so I will be in and out during the day today.
