Question about Hunter 22451 The Brookline Brushed Nickel Ceiling Fan

1 Answer

Fan is Erratic

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.

The light on the remote is a battery light. First mistake was buying a store brand fan which are mostly low-end parts. Try adding a different remote w/receiver.

mcdevito75 here, Most likely yes, Check the fan by carefully turning it just a liitle by hand, also check for heat at the fan motor base, close to the ceiling. If heat or fan won"t start by hand, replace it.

Hampton bay ceiling fan stopped lights work


you can test the light switch by temporarily hooking up the light bulb to where the fan normally goes ....the bulb will only work on the highest speed setting but can prove if the switch is bad or not . turn power off before woking in there ... if you know someone with a volt meter then they could quickly test the switch for you .. they can also test the motor for continuity .. .. most of the time the trouble is simply bad connections inside the wire nuts ... like insulation not skinned properly or wire not in the wire nut properly ..you can remove and inspect each connection (power off of course) ... sometimes there is a seperate power line for the fan and light ... so they can be independently controlled externally ... thats not needed when the pull chains are the only off on method ...

Light remote control stopped working


most of my fan controls have done this to me. you know the reciever is working cuz the fan works fine. you need to dis assemble the remote completely and clean the contacts for the light button. mine are two small black dots that seem to keep getting slimey and wont work till i clean them, then all works like brand new again.

good luck.

The receiver in the fan might be burnt out,it is at the ceiling in the large base or maybe the transmitter. Do you have fresh batteries in the transmitter?

Ceiling fan stopped working after power spike blew the breaker. I reset the breaker and all else in the room came on but not fan. Does it have an internal reset?


If you own a Hunter Original, there is no reset button, but MANY people that have a remote control added (includng me) have , once power has been restored, found that the chain was pulled by someone and it got into the off position, rather than the slow, medium or high setting. With the circuit hot, pull the chain one more time and try to turn on your fan with the remote again.
Hope this helps.
