Default Ceiling Fan sometimes stays on after trying to shutoff.

Recently my fan stays on even if I push the off button on my Versa Touch remote. If I take out the battery and leave it out for a while or use a spare battery it will turn off when pushing the off button on the versa. When the fan will not shut off it makes a weird sound like a cracking or humming sound. Normally this is not an issue and only makes this sound when it will not shutoff. Any ideas how to fix this issue.

Fan: Casablanca S3 93045
Remote: Casablanca Versa Touch

When we purchased the home we found a second Versa Touch remote that is not being used, are this interchangeable or matched with each unit. If not i may be able to set the dips on the spare to the same position as the used one and it make just work but do not want to damage anything on the fan receiver end. Thanks for any help on this.

On tvs and dvd players I have found remotes generally are interchangeable within the same model. You should be able to use the second remote. I have never heard of a remote messing things up.

The remote issue is likely with the part up at the fan not the hand held control unit.

3 speed fan, low and medium run no noticeable change in speed on high.

Tried the new battery and it worked twice but won't shut off again. Took the battery out for a while and played around with the buttons after placing it back and go it shut off. One thing that I noticed is when it won't shut off you hear a humming sound on medium speed if it doesn't hum then it will usually shut off. Went to the store where it was purchased in our town but they are out of business. I tried out spare remote with the same dip switch settings but it wouldn't turn on at all, maybe that one is bad too not sure on that. What is the next step for me to follow to troubleshoot the issue. Thanks for any help.

Paul

The link you posted, have you tried checking the dip switches as to their pages 18 to 24?

Tried changing the dips as per instructions in manual, no change. Where is the receiver located on this fan. I removed the bulb cover on the bottom and the next plate not sign of it. Is it near the ceiling where it joins or on top of the motor housing where the pole coming down ends on top of the main unit?

It is probably in the box where all the electrical connections are made.

I located the receiver its inside the top of the main fan above the motor. Tricky to get at,if I purchase a universal remote/receiver kit can I simply install this under the cap that meets the ceiling where the main power comes in and just ignore the old receiver or does the old receiver need to be taken out and the new one placed in the same location.

1st image is the new location, just wondering if the old one can be left as is and just install the new one in the other spot.

2nd image is current location, you can see it through the vents just above the motor.
