Question about Hunter Ceiling Fan Light Remote Control

Open Question

My hunter fan remote will not turn off the light.

I have cleaned the contacts and the remote will turn on/off the fan but wont turn off the light or dim it. I have to unscrew the light bulbs to get them to turn off. There is no wall switch to control the fan.

    I would assume that since the remote controls the fan perfectly then the remote would work. For some reason, I never thought that maybe part of the remote was broken. I will go to Menards and give it a try in the next couple of days.

SOURCE: Remote controlled ceiling fan has mind of it's own.

I have the same fan. The fan and the remote have some "jumpers" which allow you to change the codes, useful if someone else nearby has the same fan. You can see the jumpers inside the remote, open the back cover... you'll see "4 3 2 1" on the circuit board. Unfortunately you'll need to dismount the fan to change its jumpers, they need to be the same as the jumpers in your remote (which you can move around pretty easily).

I had the same problem. I found that the reverse button needs to be pressed really hard. It now works but I need to press that button really really hard.

SOURCE: Hunter ceiling fan-just installed -possible speed control problem

Sounds like the fan is defective. All internal wiring from the switch to the motor is factory installed. The fan has power going to it. Just to make sure, double check the wiring from the ceiling fixture to the fan.
Problem could be a faulty switch on the fan or faulty motor(bad winding for med. speed). Try reverse switch on the fan to operate the opposite direction and see if medium speed works. If medium does work in opposite direction, it pretty much points to a defective fan. In any case, unless you discover that the ceiling wires were reversed going into the fan, I'd say new fan to the returns dept.

SOURCE: Hunter ceiling fan remote 85095-01 stopped working

if the battery's are good then you broke it and you have to order a new one which you can do by calling the place that you got the fan from tell them what kind of fan you have and let them know that you nead a new remote and they will be able to help you do that.

You probably have a wire nut connection that is just barely connected. Perhaps it's a connection between stranded wire and solid wire where only one of the strands is making contact with the solid wire.

Sounds like a loose wire inside the unit. But, I would try this. With the power off, both switch and circuit breaker, try and bend the center contact for the light bulb out; pull it out away from the back of the socket. This may be the bad contact. The center contact on the bulb touches this in order to get power up into the bulb. Using a small screw driver, try and scrape the surface of this contact to clean it a bit. DO ALL OF THIS WITH THE POWER OFF!!!
Hope this helps.

Wall remote that controls ceiling fan & lights not working


Either the bulb is blown or the connection under the wire nut is loose. First check the bulb then turn off the power at the panel and check each wire nut by unscrewing it and making sure that the wires are tightly twisted together before reinstalling the wire nut.

40w candleabra bulb blew now can't turn lights off with remote


There is a receiver in the fan that when the light blew might have damaged that part of the receiver. I think you can buy them,but you will have to get into the base of the fan(ceiling cover).
