Question about Hunter 22451 The Brookline Brushed Nickel Ceiling Fan
The ceiling fan we have will work most of the time just fine. But once in a while, the fan will stop working completely, but the light will work fine. I will push the buttons on the remote to try to get the fan started, and the remote clicks and the light on the remote turns on each time I try, just like when the fan works correctly, but nothing happens.
We do have two light switches in the room, but it doesn't seem like the 2nd switch has anything to do with the fan, but I can't be sure. We have two adjacent rooms that also have the same model, the fan works correctly in one room, and doesn't work at all in the other room.
It is random as to when the fan will stop working and start working again. We bought the house about 2 yrs ago and did not install the fans ourselves.
Thanks for any help!
Ceiling fans with wireless remote controls have an electronic receiver installed in the fan, which controls the light, dimming, and fan speed. Sometimes the receiver goes bad and needs to be replaced. If you have had any power outages or power surges, they may have fried the receiver. I've noticed that my ceiling fan light turns on when the power is restored after a power outage. Now, whenever my power goes out, I shut off the light switch that powers my ceiling fan so It doesn't experience a surge to to the controller when the power comes back on. I've purchased new receivers on eBay and Amazon to replace my blown remotes and receivers.
