Many modern Hampton Bay ceiling fans, like the 7067R, are not directly connected to your home’s power supply. Instead, they are connected via a receiver, which allows you to use the ceiling fan with a remote control. However, installing the receiver into the ceiling fan can be a bit tricky since there are some electrical connections to be made. Once the receiver is installed, your fan will work off of the remote.
Things You'll Need
- Wire nuts
Turn off the electrical power to the fan, and switch off the breaker to that room to prevent electrical shock.
Loosen the screws that hold the ceiling fan’s canopy to the mounting bracket and remove the canopy. Unhook the wires from the fan to the electrical junction box.
Place the black antennae receiver on top of the receiver and slip the receiver into the mounting bracket.
Connect the wires to their like colors using the wire nuts. Slip the wire nuts over the open wires where they make the connection. Connect blue to blue, black to black, white to white and green to the bare wire.
Insert the wires into the junction box on the Hampton Bay fan. Screw the canopy into the ceiling over the mounting bracket again. Turn the power back on.
