I have the same problem but it does not trip the main circuit breaker, just the fans internal power safety trigger (the light comes on as if power was interupted). I suspect a bad relay on the receiver board. Before breaking completely, the fan reverse-direction button quit working. Then the fan would not start intermittently. Now it clicks but does not spin. The light has always worked.

The part number for the receiver board on this model is Remote: Receiver 85112-02-000. I've tried to find a website where I could just order the part but no luck yet. Probably best to call Hunters Service Center Locator at: (800) 448-6837. A discount part house may also have the part.

Good luck with your fan problem. Hunter should send us free replacement boards!

If it is tripping the breaker it has a serious load on it! You either have a dead short, like a wire being pinched by the cover, or pinched against the box or something like that, or a bad receiver. I really doubt that this is a receiver problem though. That would mean the load is all from the fan, and something would be smelling hot. If it tripps the breaker without the fan trying to come on, I would just about guarantee that a wire is being shorted to ground somewhere.

I have a Hunter ceiling fan with a remote control model number 85095. The remote will turn the fan on and off and change the speeds but it will not turn the light on or off anymore. Any help?


Make sure the wires to the light kit are connected to the light & light wire connected in ceiling.If that's not your problem then you probably need a new receiver. Call 1-888-830-1326 and have your FAN model handy.Should be a five digit number beginning with a 2.

Is there a way to take remote controll off of a fan mine stoped working after kids pulled fan or light pull


My ceiling fan loses remote control every time there is a power outage. The first thing to do is turn off power to the fan at the circuit breaker. Take the battery out of the remote and push all the buttons to eliminate a stuck button as a possible cause. Reinstall the battery. Turn on power to the fan. Check operation. You may have to pull a chain to "reeducate" the remote but you should be back up and running soon.

Hunter 52" ceiling fan model 23457-380, the remote lights up


check the hard wiring from the factory. Where the light kit attaches to the fan check the wires in the factory cubes to make sure none are coming off. I had a similar problem that kicked my **** for a few minutes but I saw a loose wire after a bit of research. My fan also clicked but never turned on. Also pull the chains on the fan/light to make sure they are on. Hope something works for you.

Fan with remote won't work with wall switch. I


I just recently purchased a hunter ceiling fan w/light and remote. Had it installed and wall switch would not work, only remote. I contacted Hunter company directly about this problem and I was told that they redesigned their fans with remotes so that only the remote works for turning off power to fan. The person who made that made that BRILLIANT change should be fired. So to those of you who own a newer hunter an product with a remote ne your wall switch will not work tat s te reason why.

You can get them a Home Depot. You may have to buy the receiver and the remote together.

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.

Ceiling fan remote not working


It is certainly possible that the remote went bad -- after all, it is an electronic device, and is was "made in China". With that said, there are other possibilities:

* The receiver, which is what receives the signals sent by the remote control, could have died. In most remote-controlled fans, the receiver is located in the ceiling canopy (the decorative part up by the ceiling, which hides the wires). In other fans, it's located in the switch housing (the part of the fan to which the light kit attaches). Solution: try everything else on this list; if nothing works, replace the receiver. Universal replacements for most models are available at Home Depot and Lowes.

* A wire on that receiver could have come loose. Solution: check all wires for secureness.

* A wire in your wall or ceiling -- the wire which provides power to the fan -- could have come loose or been chewed through by a rodent. Solution: use a circuit tester to check whether there's power at the connections at the top of the fan, in the ceiling, where the fan connects to the building's wiring.

* A circuit breaker could have tripped or a fuse could have blown. Solution: check your circuit breaker or fuse panel.

* The DIP switches inside the remote control -- which set the frequency on which the control transmits -- could have been knocked out of position accidentally or by a child playing with it. Solution: check the code on the DIP switches on the receiver in the fan -- then, make sure the remote control has its DIP switches set the exact same way.

If none of the above work, then yes -- the problem is with the receiver or the transmitter (remote). The two are typically sold as a pair, and universal replacements are available at Home Depot and Lowe's.

Hope that helps! Feel free to ask for clarification if you need it!

Hunter ceiling fan w/ remote won't work


You need to change the receiver inside the fan. It is located in the top canopy of the fan. you don't have to buy a new remote just the receiver to save money and match the dip switches to the remote.
