    The problem is the base unit has dip switches and the hand held remote has pins. How do I match the two?

Yeah, if you take off the battery cover on your fan remote there should be something called a "dip switch". it wiil be numbered 1,2,3,4, just flip these switches up or down to match the receiver that will be located in the fan houseing or in the fan canopy.

Light comes on all by itself


You are probably picking up some kind of radio interference that is causing the receiver to think a remote has sent it a signal. A possible solution to this issue is to change the frequency that the remote uses to communicate to the receiver to turn the fan or light on.

I have had the same problem with the light coming on intermittently by itself. At first I also could not change the settings and have the remote work with the new settings. But I found out that when you change the dip switch of the receiver you must turn off the power using the wall switch or the circuit breaker and turn it back on before the receiver will use the new dip setting. I am still waiting to see if the light will come back on after changing the dip switches from 1-on, 2-on, 3-on, 4-off to 1-off, 2-on, 3-on, 4-on and the remote's jumpers from 1-jumpered, 2-jumpered, 3-jumpered, 4- no jumper to 1-no jumper, 2-jumpered, 3-jumpered, 4- jumpered.

These directions are for the Hunter 27157 model.

Can this remote (hunter 27157) be paired with a fan that is already installed and has a remote. I want to use it as a backup. the remote i have is not a 27157.


I know you can use many different remotes of the 27157 model to control one receiver. There are several different reason why you may not be able to use the remote from one brand/model with another. The first is the frequency range may be different. One could be 27mhz and another could be 49mhz. Another reason is the code that is sent to the receiver by the remote to turn on the light or the fan varies from manufacturer to manufacturer and even from one model to the next from the same manufacturer. This is so there is less chance one remote/receiver commbination will interfere with another in the same location. That is why I say you will be very lucky to find an off model remote to work with your receiver.

I installed a Hunter On"Off fan and light control model 27157 on a Hunter Augusta fan model 21338. I tested the remote control and the fan and light on, however, after a period of time, the fan turns on...


Most likely this is caused by radio interference from some other device nearby. Try changing the "channel" by changing the dip switches on both devices and make sure they match. :)

No dip switch in Hunter 27157 remote control.


Those aren't transistors in the transmitter they are jumpers. Match the jumper settings with your dip switch settings in the receiver. You can move the jumpers in the transmitter using a small needle nose pliers. An open jumper in the transmitter equals an OFF setting on the dip switch in the receiver.

Good luck!

What type battery does the Hunter #27157 remote use?


It's a 12v battery, I found this battery in CVS and it was an energizer battery.  It's about half the size of a AAA battery.

Remote control for the fan


So you have Hampton Bay fans and universal remotes? If so, then either the remotes are not programmed correctly or the receivers are not wired for the remotes. That is one bad thing about using universal remotes.

I suggest you go to Home Depot and buy one Hampton Bay remote, bring it home, turn of the breaker to the fans, and get on a ladder to get to the receiver. Check the dip switches, and program the switches on the remote exactly the same way.

(While you're at it, make sure the universals dip switches are set exactly the same.)

It should work properly after that.
