Kichler Ceiling Fan Remotes

Do you want to get a Kichler ceiling fan remote? Is there an issue with your current Kichler fan remote? If yes, you land on the right place. This guide will be helpful for you to troubleshoot your existing remote. If those tips do not work, we will also help you to get a replacement for it or you can use a universal remote for your ceiling fan. First of all, let’s start with troubleshooting your Kichler ceiling fan remote.

Why is my Kichler fan remote not working?

If your Kichler ceiling fan remote is not working, you need to follow a few steps to determine if they are the issue. In three different steps:

  1. You need to ensure that the batteries in the remote are replaced. We can’t pay attention to it enough
  2. Ensure that the dip switches are synced correctly. Have you changed them recently? Sometimes if the remote is thrown by a baby, the dip switches may change positions and then the remote can’t locate the fan anymore. Remotes and ceiling fans use IR frequencies to operate, and the frequency they talk on is given by the dip switches.
  3. Find out if the problem is with the remote or with the receiver.
    • If you have a spare remote that you can use to communicate with the fan, try that
    • Does the remote command any of the fan functions, for instance, can the fan turn on but the light does not? Or the fan won’t reply to anything from the remote at all?

If you have tried all these steps and you are failed, it is time to change the remote. When it comes to getting a remote replacement, you get a few options. The first option is to locate the original part number that came with the package. If you are unable to find out which remote you need, you need to read the part number in the Kichler ceiling fan manual that came with the package of the fan. If you do not have this option, you can go online to search for Kichler manual. If the manual is not available online, you should check your Kichler ceiling fan model.

Kichler Universal Ceiling Fan Remotes

If none of the previous options have given you results (such as not finding the remote at Home Depot or Lowe’s), it might be time to consider a universal Kichler ceiling fan remote. When it comes to universal remote controls, a general rule of thumb is to purchase a remote from the same manufacturer. Therefore, if you need to control a Kichler ceiling fan, it’s best to opt for a universal remote from Kichler as well. However, you have to be careful from online knock-offs. Some customers mistakenly purchase a Breeze Bay remote for a Harbor Breeze ceiling fan, which is not manufactured by the same company. Certain online retailers offer remotes from knock off companies. Before buying anything, ensure you check the manufacturer of the remote and review all compatibility information first.

This replacement universal Kichler remote includes a receiver and is compatible with ceiling fans that operate on AC power (not DC power). The remote provides 3 forward speeds, one reverse speed, and an “off” option to turn off the fan motor. It’s important to note that this remote is only suitable for dry locations, so avoid placing it in wet areas like a rain-exposed patio to avoid damage.

How do I program my Kichler fan remote?

To program a Kichler ceiling fan, you need to use dip switches. If you’re unfamiliar with dip switches, they resemble the image below. They are typically located on the surface of your ceiling fan receiver, which is inside the fan’s canopy or housing. On the remote, you can find the dip switches inside the battery slot or compartment. The dip switches determine the frequency used for communication between the remote and the fan. Both the remote and the receiver operate on infrared (IR) frequencies. The specific frequency can vary slightly in terms of megahertz, and it is set using the dip switches. The important step is to ensure that the same dip switch settings are applied to both the remote and the receiver. Without matching settings, the remote will be unable to communicate with the fan.
