23629-300 Fan Only a black and white wire present - lots of electronics in the housing - does that mean that this is the remote receiver?

You need two switches. It sounds like the Electrician set up the junction box for two circuits(Lights and Fans). i say this because your supply has 4 wires, Red , Black, White and Bare. We may be able to oversome this with one Lutron Switch. Allow me to investigate, and I will be back.

Hello burrow31. There maybe a switch located on the fan stating 'remote/manual'. Check your manual. Remove the battiers in your remote and short out the battery contact terminals. Reinstall the battiers, start the fan and after fan has reached set speed press & hold fan speed button for one second. Still no speed change contact the Mgfr. with model & serial #.

If you don't want the to use the remote you don't have to, but you don't have enough wires to switch the upper light, the lower light, and the fan. You can, however, switch the upper and lower lights together if that's okay. In order to do that you'd connect the white from the ceiling box to the white (neutral) on the fan, then the green from the ceiling box to any green(ground) wires on the fan, then the black from the ceiling box to the black(motor) from the fan, then the red from the ceiling box to the blue and orange (lights) from the fan. I'm assuming that the black and red in the ceiling box are also in the switch box where the fan/light control switch is going. Those are the ones you'll connect to the controller.

In case someone else stumbles upon this:
I replaced the remote receiver on one of these fans. jb is right just the top housing that touches the ceiling needs to be removed. Twist it counter clockwise and pull down. You'll see all the wires and the remote receiver. It might not seem like much room to work with, but you can remove the wires and slide the receiver out sideways to replace it or if you can't see the dip switches. Too bad Home Depot is too cheap to even provide instructions when they send you the replacement remove receiver.

make sure power is off before working on the fan wiring ..(trip circuit breaker)
here is what the house wires are
1. black is hot (power) all the time .. its normally connected to the black wire of the fans speed control switch .. that is normally operated by a pull chain ..
2. red is the same power as black except it comes from a wall switch .. this would be connected to the blue wire in the fan (that goes to its light) .. that will allow you to turn the light on an off from the wall switch ..
3. white is neutral .. it connects to both white wires inside the fan .. one goes to the fan the other goes to the light. .. if there is more than one light bulb then there will be more white wires .. hook them all together and to the white house wiring ..
4 then there is safety ground .. usually green or bare copper ... that is connnected to either a green wire inside the fan or bolted to the metal of the fan (often a green bolt is provided) .. the green wire is not required for the fan to run but is required as a safety to make sure no one gets shocked on the fans metal parts ..
after you wire the fan ..then turn on the wall switch .. if the light doesnt light then pull its pull chain until it does .. you can then tie up or remove that chain to prevent anyone from changing that position since you can now control the light from the wall switch you dont need that chain anymore .. the fan should come on slow med and high then off .. each time you pull its chain ..
