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 purchased a Universal Wall Mount Control to operate a current wireless controlled fan with a hand held remote. Why is the wall mount control not operating fan with fans original receiver?

Depending on the age and brand of the fan it could have dip switches on the receiver, the part of the remote control unit that is either up in the canopy of the fan or it may be built into the fan, and the wall control ie transmitter may not be compatible with it. When replacing a remote control unit it is advisable to replace both since it could be either the receiver or transmitter.

If the lightbulb burns out in a whirlpool duet gew9250pw1 dryer will that cause it to quit working

Generally, a burnt-out bulb will not stop the dryer from working. However, the bulb may have failed due to a power surge. In that case, you'll have to check the components that could have also been damaged.
First, check that the circuit breakers are on. (There may be two breakers for an electric dryer.) Next, is the drum turning or does the unit not start. If the control board buttons aren't responding, the electronic control is likely bad or the wiring harness has an issue. If you aren't getting heat, you need to check the thermal fuse (thermal cut-offs), wiring, thermostat (high temp limit) and element. A multi-meter will tell you if the fuses have the appropriate resistance (10-30 Ohms).

I hope this helps.

Smokeing wire, heat surge, in control box. how do i get in and find wire to replace it. thank u M

First...TURN OFF THE BREAKER IN YOUR HOME CIRCUIT BOX!!! Then you can work safely... If this is a clothes dryer (you never confirmed that nor did you give the manufacturer or model) you need to remove the panel at the back and look in at all of the controls and their wires. Change out any wires or controls that look cooked.

Bosch maxx 7 condenser dryer not working after power surge. It starts but doesnt generate any heat, starts beeping and then stops. Was working fine until the power surge.

Most likely, the surge blew the internal fuse. I would try replacing that first. If you can't do it personally, have a certified tech do it for you.

My dryer will only work for like 3 minutes and then it kicks out the breaker. It is an lg tromm dle3777w. It has worked fine for about 4 years. Used it for a load already today and it worked fine. ...

Hi - there is a fault with the heating circuit, most likely either a bad connection on the elements or elsewhere on the wiring. The only other problem would be the actual heater element, although doubtful as it would normally pop the circuit breaker instantly if this was the case.

Although i'm not familiar with this particular model all dryers operate the same way, when on air dry there is usually no heating involved, it will work ok.

If you can handle the repairs yourself otherwise get an electrician or appliance serviceman to help you out.

I have a broan model 150 ceiling mounted heater, i took it apart to clean and when i put it back together the fan works fine but the element isnt working at all what did i do wrong, does the neutral hook...

"does the neutral hook up to the element?"

Yes - the element requires a neutral (white wire) connection and is generally wired in parallel with the fan.
