hampton bay remote control fan wiring

something fimiliar need to share here regarding hampton bay remote control fan that quote from yahoo answer maby will help some of you

Help Wiring Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan w/ Remote?

Question : Hampton Bay Redington IV 52" ceiling fan w/remote

4 wires from the ceiling: White, Black, Red, and Green.
3 from the fan: White, Black and Blue.

Between them is a transmitter for the remote.
2 wires to the ceiling: White and Black
3 wires to the fan: White, Black, and Blue.

All wires have been connected to their counterpart (White to White, Black to Black, Blue to Blue, and Green to Green)Where I'm having a problem is, what do I do with the red wire? Right now I've capped the red wire and have it connected to no other wires. The fan or lights are not turning on.

Where does the transmitter sit? And did the fan come with any instructions.
I've wired many ceiling fans with dimmers, fan speeds, etc..pretty straightforward installs, but never with a remote so I don't know where that transmitter is suppose to go, I'm trying to picture it and help you.
The 3 wire romex coming out of the ceiling is meant to supply two 'hots', a neutral, and a ground. 3 wire is intended for an actual fan switch with the fan/light seperated controls or to have two seperate single pole switches to control each.
So....we know that your transmitter needs power all the time and your fan/light needs switched power.
Based on the info you've given and I hope I'm understanding it correctly, those transmitter wires white,black, blue are wired to the white,black, blue to the fan.
The other white and black on the transmitter go to the white and black sticking out of the ceiling.
The red wire is capped at both the ceiling and switch.
Inside your switch box you have an incoming power. You can take out the switch and wire the incoming power black,white,ground to the black,white,ground going to the fan. Keep the red capped.
Then you can put a blank plate over the switch box or if you prefer to keep the switch, it has to always be in the on position for the transmitter to work.

I hope this will work for you, I see no other way of wiring that based on what I understand of your situation.
