I have this ceiling fan in my house. The previous owner didn't leave any documentation about it. It came with a remote, but unfortunately the remote's screen does not turn on, even with a fresh battery.

The fan:fan

Here is the fan with the upper cover removed: under upper cover

Here is a close-up underneath the upper cover. This is the writing I can find on here. The other side looks roughly the same, but without any writing on it. under upper cover - closeup

Here is the fan with the lamp cover removed: under lamp cover

Here is a close-up underneath the lamp cover: under lamp cover - closeup

Here is the remote that came with it. Unfortunately, even with a fresh battery, the screen on the remote does not turn on. remote control front remote control back - with battery remote control back - without battery

Thanks in advance for your help! If we can figure out what kind of fan this is, I will try buying a new remote and see if that gets the fan going again.

    google the fcc number – jsotola Jul 5 '20 at 22:52
  • @jsotola Done. Here's what I've learned so far. (1) It's a 304 MHz remote. (2) There are lots of ceiling-fan-related products with the numbers UC70XX. I am looking for a compatible remote now. – solvingPuzzles Jul 5 '20 at 22:54

    home depot shows replacement remote controls ... would not hurt to try one – jsotola Jul 5 '20 at 22:56
  • @jsotola Good point. I am having trouble finding a remote that claims to be compatible with UC7091T. There are many replacement remotes for UC7078T and UC7081T. So, I think I will order a kit that contains a remote and a new receiver. If the remote doesn't work with my receiver, I will also install the new receiver. – solvingPuzzles Jul 5 '20 at 23:05
  • have you looked closely at the fan assembly? ... there may be a label ... the blades may have a part number on them ... look on top side of the blades ... it is quite possible that the remote control does not belong with the fan – jsotola Jul 6 '20 at 2:42

If the fan itself still works you should be able to get an aftermarket remote control package that includes a new remote and receiver/controller and you can just swap out both of them for the new ones. Fan brand shouldn't matter.

  • DC fans generally don't work with generic remotes – ThreePhaseEel Oct 24 '20 at 23:38
  • I ended up buying one of those remote control packages and installing the receiver (replacing the old receiver to which I do not have a working remote). It works great now with a new remote. – solvingPuzzles Oct 26 '20 at 0:43

Looks like a “Big Ass Fan”, maybe a “Haiku” model or “Haiku L” model. They come in sizes from 8’ to 14’ with various types of controllers.

You can Google them and then email your pictures to them.

  • Is that a brand name? Really? Sheesh... :/ Also, it's hard to tell without a reference, but that doesn't look to be an 8' diameter fan. Again, hard to tell... – FreeMan Jul 6 '20 at 15:14

    I read stack exchange, I find it feeds my little brain, I'm a big ass fan. Today's Haiku is inspired by Lee Sam. – Alaska Man Jul 6 '20 at 16:28
  • @AlaskaMan Great marketing, isn’t it. You’ll never forget the name of that fan company. I’ve used them several times in the past. – Lee Sam Jul 6 '20 at 19:37
