Thanks for the replies.
1) Unfortunately, Hampton Bay ceiling fan remote receivers are known for failing. For whatever reason, the HB fan receivers are poorly manufactured and they often fail as compared to their counterpart fans such as Hunter or Casablanca brands. You're lucky as you got 13 years out of yours. I've seen HB receivers fail within 2 years or less. HB fans are actually manufactured by 3 different companies in China and not by HB. HB is just a name that Home Depot uses for its brand.
2) Since the fan does not have pull chains, there is no way to isolate and temporarily de-install the remote receiver to confirm if the fan motor capacitor
is faulty. Since the fan is a Hampton Bay brand, I doubt that the problem is the motor capacitor and is most likely the receiver.
3) Replacement receivers are available at Home Depot or Lowe's if the receiver is installed in the ceiling canopy cover.
If the receiver is installed within the fan motor housing and NOT in the canopy area, these are also available but are typically not sold at the big box home improvement stores. Motor housing receivers are sold at the following company:
4) A last attempt would be to step thru each of the 16 possible 4 position DIP switch settings and see if one of these works. Or you would need to perform a visual inspection on the actual receiver to determine the setting and confirm it to the handheld transmitter.
