Previous owners didn't leave a remote, so I need to get a replacement. Should be easy enough. But no brand or model name is visible. How do I identify this?

I bought a Hampton Bay replacement remote from Amazon and tried all 16 combinations for 4 dip switches, then borrowed a Concord brand remote from a neighbor and tried all 32 combinations for 5 dip switches, both to no avail. Getting desperate at this point since a recent power outage somehow left it stuck on at high speed. Any pointers in the right direction would be appreciated, thank you!

  • 16 dip switches so you tried all 65536 combinations? Assuming only on/off... – Solar Mike Jul 3 '19 at 5:34
  • @SolarMike I tried all 16 combinations for the remote that had 4 dip switches and all 32 combinations for the remote that had 5 dip switches. Edited to clarify, thanks. – leekaiinthesky Jul 3 '19 at 6:01
  • I’d try Big Ass Fans. Great service and can recommend controllers too. bigassfans.com – Lee Sam Jul 3 '19 at 6:52

    Have you tried removing some of the covers on the fan to see if there is a model number plate inside? – Martin Bonner supports Monica Jul 3 '19 at 9:18
  • Yeah, this fan should have a nameplate somewhere on it.... – ThreePhaseEel Jul 3 '19 at 11:31
