Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan

Hi,
Recently two Hampton Bay ceiling fans (with remote control) in my townhouse started to turn itself (the light and fan) on automatically. The fans came with the house I purchased six years ago.
I took the batteries out of the remotes and the fans still behaving weird.
Any ideas?
Thanks!

The remote is RF so maybe you have a neighbor with a new fan. I think you can change the codes in the fan, look for a row of small switches (usually 8) called a dipswitch on top of the fan or inside an access panel. Usually these need to match what is inside the remote. The website sucks for support, you may need to actually go to a HD and ask a salesperson (they probably won't know but may be able to locate an instruction manual). probably have more luck at a HD Expo, the staff is better trained (supposedly)
Also try removing power to the fan briefly to reset the remote reciever. You may need to toggle the circuit breaker since the fan probably isn't just plugged into the wall. Even when off, power still flows to the reciever circuit.
