Customer Question
My Harbor Breeze remote...

My Harbor Breeze remote stopped communicating with the fan and light. we now have no light or fan. Put fresh batteries in the remote and still no luck. Any suggestions

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

Have had difficulty with the light for about 6 months, but not neither the light or the fan work

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes if it's not a major undertaking, I'm fairly handy.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No not really.

Hi....... it may be a problem with the remote itself............do you have the fan on a wall switch also or a pull chain?....................do you think you can find a way to open the remote so I can tell you how to clean it ?
