Controlling a ceiling fan/light using a wall switch causes the remote control to lose its memory. You will have to start all over at the beginning. Remove batteries from the remote, push all buttons to eliminate a stuck button as a cause, then reinstall batteries but do not push any button yet. Be sure all wall switches are off. Go to the power source for the fan/light (not the wall switch) and turn it off. Wait briefly, then turn on the power at the source again. Try remote operation. If successful, use only the remote to control operation. Forget about using the wall switches.
Sounds like all the dip switches are set to factory still. Easy enough to fix. Slide open the battery compartment on the back of the remote control and remove the fan's canopy against the ceiling. Then just change the switch to a different setting but make sure that the remote and fan have the same setting. Repeat this in each room so that all the fans have a different setting to each other.
mcdevito75 here, Generally the Ceiling fan motor is hooked up by-passing the wall switch but still to the hot laed going to the wall switch whlie the lights are hooked up to the hot lead after the wall switch, So without the remote, Manually operate your fan and lights. First with the wall switch off the fan should work and the lights no work. Now turn the fan off with the pull chain on the fan shroud close to the ceiling. Now turn wall switch on and lights should work with wall switch and the fan should also work. if so, re-program the remote or change the batteries or even re--place the remote.
I just installed a 2nd hunter fan model 23811 that also seems to be controlled by grimlins. If the power is left on, the light and fan randomly turn on and off. And no, it is not due to fans being on the same frequency. It appears to be an issue with the control module. I'm contacting Hunter.
If you don't want the to use the remote you don't have to, but you don't have enough wires to switch the upper light, the lower light, and the fan. You can, however, switch the upper and lower lights together if that's okay. In order to do that you'd connect the white from the ceiling box to the white (neutral) on the fan, then the green from the ceiling box to any green(ground) wires on the fan, then the black from the ceiling box to the black(motor) from the fan, then the red from the ceiling box to the blue and orange (lights) from the fan. I'm assuming that the black and red in the ceiling box are also in the switch box where the fan/light control switch is going. Those are the ones you'll connect to the controller.
