Customer: the remote controls the fan fine, but if the all switch is on...required for power, you cannot dim the light with the remote or turn it if the bulb is in it and you want the ceiling fan on, you have to have a very bright light on as weel well the battery is fine. It works the fan fine

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! If the remote turns the light on and off but won't dim it, the issue is not with the remote but with the receiver. It will probably need to be replaced.

May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
THere is a number on the remote hopefully that is what you want and it is CHQ8BT7053T
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

That is just for the remote, the receiver is in the fan itself. I will need either the model of the fan as a whole unit or a number from the receiver inside the fan.

i can't find a model number on the fan it is on the ceiling...any idea where on the fan it would be?
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

It is usually on a small tag on the fan motor, usually on the top so it is out of sight from below.
