Question about Hunter 52" Ceiling Fan With Light And Remote Control
WHEN I USE MY REMOTE CONTROL TO TURN ON FAN IT TRIPS MY CIRCUIT BREAKER! HOWEVER IT WILL TURN ON THE LIGHT WITH NO PROBLEMS.
I CAN HEAR IT CLICK BUT FAN DOES NOT START, AFTER A FEW SECONDS IT WILL TRIP BREAKER. DOES NOT SEEM TO BE PROBLEM WITH FAN MOTOR IT SPINS FREELY AND IS ONLY FOUR YEARS OLD, GETS USED VERY LITTLE!
PLEASE HELP, JIM
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.
