Advice on fan remote control

I am going to change my fan remotes out. They're the older Hampton Bay remotes. I need two of them. They need to be able to dim LED lights, and set the fan speed. Can someone recommend one? I'm seeing a lot of no-name models on amazon, but some of them seem to be missing features.

There are many different remotes.
There should be a model number on the back or under the battery door. Post that number.

The older Hampton Bay remotes I remember also had reverse on them.

I've got the original remotes, they don't work with LED lights, and the range is bad. That's why I'm asking if there a recommended after market module that works

You don't just want a remote..... you want a replacement receiver and remote kit.

Yes.... I see many choices on places like amazon. You could just get that the actual Hampton Bay kit but it does not operate LED lights. So.... pick one on amazon and read the reviews. I wouldn't be surprised if they all came out of the same factory.

The range issue is handled by readjusting the antenna wire. Try to get it outside of the canopy.

I was looking over the choices and like this one.... fan remote kit
It even control two sets of lights.
