Question about Hunter 52" Ceiling Fan With Light And Remote Control

2 Answers

I have a bedroom ceiling fan that recently started to have a surge issue. It was working fine before (although the remote control for this fan also worked on the Hampton Bay fan in the living room and the remote for the living room fan worked for this Hunter bedroom fan so when adjusting one fan or the other would adjust both fans) Recently though I went to turn on the bedroom fan and the lights keep surging on and off and the fan itself won't work. The remote works cause its adjusting the living room fan. My friends say it's probably the fan itself and not the wiring, I'm not so sure. Any suggestions?

    Worked fine then tried to turn on and the light started to surge, and fan would not come on. The fan and light has worked fine for five years. Why now?

Thanks Chad7houston, my friend Mike who thinks its the fan itself is an electrician and installed the fan for me. He assures me it's not the wiring its the fan...If the problem doesn't get fixed from me switching the jumpers and tightening all my connections on the fan I'm going to bribe Mike over with homestyle cooking to get him to take another look.

Sounds like you could have a problem with the fan....but there is also an equaly good chance it's the wiring of the fan. Perhaps a loose connection. If you are not familiar with checking electrical connections, you probably need to call an electrician to check the wiring SOON, before there is a short. If all connections are good, then you will know it's the fan (or the remote receiver on the fan).
Hope this helps!

I have 3 of them, and when i use my remote control for one bedroom ,at the same time it starts working the other fans in the other bedrooms


The code switches are very small two position slide switches. Start with one fan and open the handheld fan controller. You will see the small slide switches that set the code, they may be in the battery compartment and do not look like typical switches. However you set the code on the hand held, you need to set the same code on the fan itself. The switches on the fan are usually in the motor cage and will look very similar to the hand held switches.
Set new codes in one fan and set another code on one of the others. The third fan should be fine. Please message me if you have problems doing this.

We have 2 Hunter ceiling fans with remotes. We can get the one in the bedroom to work great but the one in the living room now will not turn on the fan or light. Also when we are trying to get the living...


The remote might have wrong orders. Get the battery out and insert it back and see if the problem solved.
Do you set the dip switchs correctly on the fan and on the remote? Numbers set must be matched. Otherwise, the fan won't work either.

Ceiling fan with light and remote stopped working


It's most likely the receiver for the remote (transmitter) -- it's located under the cover at the top of the fan -- will need replacing.

My home is pre wired for a ceiling fan in the master bedroom. There are two light switches that control the pre installed wires. One for the light on the fan and one for the fan. There are four wires


The usual wiruing for these fan/light circuits is that the black wire on one switch is for the fan and the red on the other switch is for the light. If you are using a remote set up for both fan and light, then hook the remote wires to the black and white wires in the ceiling, You can cap off the red wire in the ceiling as this will not be used.

Fan is Erratic


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.

Hunter ceiling fan


Sounds like the remote receiver units (located where the mains connect to the fans) took a surge and have failed.
