We purchased one of these in 2012 for a very large sunroom. The electrician put it up without the receiver and it works connected to a standard 3 speed fan wall switch. The manufacturer appears to state here that the fan cannot be used without the remote and receiver. So I am trying to figure out why mine seems to work correctly. It has 3 speeds and a light kit. I wish the high speed was faster but so do many other people. I am asking because I am thinking about buying a second one and would prefer to hard wire it to another fan switch in the wall.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. The Altura was updated to have the receiver built-in to the switch cup. The Altura fan you purchased in 2012 likely had a canopy receiver that was able to be bypassed (not installed).

As for the speeds the new motor has a maximum speed of 76 RMP this is the design parameters of the electric motor, to make it go faster would burn out the motor. The large blades of the fan compensate for the slower speeds by moving more CFM of air. Read Less

Here's is what I would do.

Here's is what I would do.
Check circuit breaker to make sure it's not tripped.
Check wall switch to make sure it's on if it's still there , or if wire nuts are still fastened if you bypassed the switch.
With circuit breaker off disconnect the black and white wires to the fan. This does two things , safety and resets the receiver if tripped. Turn on circuit to fan making sure the black wire is isolated from the white wire and any other objects.
Check with a meter the black and white wires in the fan junction box where the fan connects to the circuit for power. Making sure both the circuit breaker and switch is on.
Note make sure fan ground is grounded to circuit ground. Fan receiver is sensitive .
Turn circuit off and reconnect fan wires.
Check the two wires power and common to the receiver for power with meter
If you have got to the bottom of the list and have power at all the junticions your receiver is bad. If not go to next step.
Change batteries with fresh in remote.
Change dip switch in remote.
Re-Learn remote to fan receiver.
If this still doesn't get you going your remote and or receiver is bad
Good luck.

Assumed you replaced the battery. These remotes or receivers don't seem to last very long. However, most of the time, the remote is the problem. The newer fans have the receiver built in so fan replacement is the only option. Older fans have the receiver mounted in the ceiling hanger bracket. Newer fans with the receiver built in, came out around 2013 - 2014. You can go to Home Decorators web site and Read More

Newer fans with the receiver built in, came out around 2013 - 2014. You can go to Home Decorators web site and try to order a new remote. Don't know if this will work but the fans have a lifetime warranty.
If you have to replace the fan and having seen a lot of issues with this fan, I suggest looking at the Hampton Bay 60 inch fan. This fan has higher fan speeds and I have used both. My preference is the 60".

Answer: 
Sorry for the issue you're having. If the red light still works on the remote control, then the receiver in your fan is defective. To replace the receiver please call customer service at 1-855-HD-HAMPTON(1-855-434-2678)

Thi is the same problem that MANY have had. If you've changed out the battery in the remote I is almost certain to be the brain in the fan. This has been an issue.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 680 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bought this fan just under 2 years ago. Loved the looks, very quite and good air flow. That is until it just stopped working. Changed the battery in the remote - still nothing. Read the other recommendations which included getting a replacement remote/sensor. Except when I looked up the part number - it is discontinued. What the?! Now I have to take the thing down and haul into the store for a replacement?! I am very unhappy that fans aren't coming with an option to hardware into a switch. This wouldn't be an issue if it had. October 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Altura 68 in. Oil Rubbed Bronze Ceiling Fan and light kit Several years ago, we installed two of the Altura 68" oil rubbed bronze ceiling fans. One in our living space and one over the dinning table. We really enjoy the style and air movement, so much so, this year we added two more, one in the master and one in the guest room. Delima! We needed more light in the dinning area, so for several years we searched and just could not find a suitable substitute for this stylish work horse of a fan. We have not had to used the air condition during the warmer Sacramento, Ca. months since installing the fans. This week we purchased a light kit, to give it a try. We thought it would take away from the simple beauty of the fan. We were wrong, the additional light enhanced the appearance of the fan. . We purchased light kits for all four fans, and are very pleased with the additional light and the sustained style. Again this fan is a work horse. I open a few window early in the morning, turn the fans on to draw in the cool night air. At one time we thought we had a defective fan, because it was not moving air as well as the others. We soon discovered we had forgotten to set the reversible motor for optimum air movement. I told my husband when we sale our home I am taking the fans with me. October 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Big fan of this fan Fan looks great installed and good quality overall. Moves lots of air in a big vaulted-ceilinged room. We keep wall switch on and use the remote for speed/direction. Installed on a beam in a room with a high ceiling--lots of quiet air flow. Install was fairly straightforward. Thought of getting a light kit but prefer the looks without it. Would recommend this. August 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do not buy this fan! I bought 3 of them for rooms in my house and two have failed after 18 months. The receiver on the unit fails and the fan won't start again after turning it off. If you contact Home Depot they don't carry a replacement part and will only give you the customer service number for Hampton Bay fans. Finding the replacement part has proven difficult and is back ordered from Hampton Bay fans. My research on the internet reveals that this is a common problem with this fan. If two of the three fans have failed I'm sure it's only a matter of time before it's 3 of 3. October 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I wanted We had to replace are existing fan. The only thing it lacked was a light, but could be added for an additional cost. You choose from 4 models of lights. This was extremely heavy, and requires two people to lift securely, could be done with one if you mechanically inclined. July 26, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Buyer BEWARE I hate that I love the look of this fan.... I hate even more the fan's receiver!! We replaced it once already and I thought all was good. Yesterday, silly me thought to clean the blades and I turned it off using the wall switch...guess what, it won't turn back on...now we need another receiver only to find out they are discontinued! What is a girl to do???? Oh, I know, buy another fan that doesn't look as good but actually works!!!...#thisstinks Oh, also, the air flow on this fan is horrible...really, all it does is lumber along on it's highest speed -- you feel no air flow... October 20, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by It looks great but there is a massive flaw I have two in my living room/dining room and both went out after a power outage and now I need two receivers! Haven't gotten them and stil within the warranty period. They should supply them with extras if the fans can't handle an outage. October 30, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful fan ! Now worn the consumer that their is little or no airflow when using the flush mount against the ceiling. Must have 10 foot ceilings or more an use down rod to get any effect from the fan. October 29, 2016
