Hampton Bay Remote Controlled Ceiling Fan — Fan went on fire!
I purchased a Remote controlled Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan W/light fixture. I turned it on today to use and it was on for about an hour when it started making a noise in the fan, so I turned it off. A little while later I smelled something burning and there was smoke pouring out of the fan, it somehow turned itself back on and I ran and turned off the main power to it. I had to call 911. The Remote module burned up and was melted. I am glad I was home at the time or I could have had a serious fire in my house. The remote model # is UC7067RC. Please anyone that has a ceiling fan with a remote, check it and make sure it does not have this same model #. I would recommend not leaving the fans on when you are going out. I am replacing this fan with a different brand all together.
