Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rob Nice simple remote
If you are a DYI'er then this is straight forward simple to install. If you can follow directions, you can install this as well. I had CFL lights on my fan and can't dim the lights, but the remote has a dip switch that gives you the option of using it for non-dimmable bulbs or for dimmable bulbs. I can't give it a reliability grade just yet because I just installed it last week (5-5-16), but so far so good. See the pictures for final installation - FYI: I painted the blades to match my 6 yr. old son's room decor/color (original fan blades are white).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pat Easy Replacement
I have had the fan for about 12 years. The receiving unit finally wore out. Unfortunately, the Home Depot in my city no longer carried the Hampton Bay remote kit. Some genius has decided to carry a generic model instead. I don't have a problem with a generic, but I would lose some of the original functions of the fan. I found I could order the Hampton Bay remote online which I did. The original estimate for store delivery was six days. However, the remote was not delivered for ten days. I then found out it was delivered from another store about 15 miles away. I would've drove to the store and picked it up had I known it. The product is great, Home Depot's logistics could use some major improvements...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pn Easy to install
This is a great product for anyone wanting to get remote control of their ceiling fan. Took a few minutes to hook up, fit the little box on the fan unit, and close back up. Nice this, you dont have to take the whole fan down to install this. Just turn off breaker, then rewire to add the controller, and it's done. Good product. I would purchase this again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kathy Didn't work, wouldn't take back at the store
This remote would not work and it was hooked up by an electrician. Since we bought it on line they would not take it back at the store and give us a store credit. Very agitated. They said if we took the whole fan down and brought it in too they would exchange it. Why would we take down a $300 outside fan that we just paid an electrician to put up to get a refund on a $30 remote control? This will be the last product we buy on line from Home Depo.

While the fan has chains to control lights and speed, it's much nicer having a remote. If you have other Hampton Bay fans in the house be sure to change the dip switches Before installing. Otherwise you effect every other fan when you go to test it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Holly Don't like that there is not a dimming feature and also don't like that fan speeds up before it turns off
Yes the remote does what is is supposed to do. It turns on and off the light and turns on and off the fan and it switches through the 3 fan speed. But in all honesty, I am just not in love with the remote at all. My biggest issue is that it has no dimming feature. So the light is on all the way or not at all. In the mornings or evenings too really I'd like to be able to put the light on medium. Plus i don't like the arrangement of the buttons. This could be just my personal taste and perhaps I'll get used to it but without reading the labels it isn't obvious to me what the button are.For another fan I had I had purchased another remote (different brand) and its buttons were stacked one above the other. And this just made more sense to me when I was trying to select an option. (As a side note - this remote is crazy appealing to my 18 month old. She would hit those buttons all day long if I let her.)
