Hampton Bay ceiling fans are designed to circulate air within a room to help provide a more comfortable environment. The fans can rotate in either direction to circulate air in different patterns, producing either a cooling or warming effect. Some models of Hampton Bay fans use a remote control device that adjusts operating times, temperatures, speed and rotation direction. Changing the direction of a remotely controlled Hampton Bay fan is a simple procedure that takes just seconds to accomplish.


Step 1

Turn the fan on by pressing the "auto" button or the "lo," "med" or "hi" buttons on the remote control, depending on the type of unit.
