Hunter 27185 remote

I have 3 Hunter remote fan lights.  Two of them go off and on when they want to - either cars, the neighbor, or something else makes both the fan and light go on randomly.
What can I do about this?

    The solution was no help whatsoever

    I have 3 fan lights in separate bedrooms

    The Hunter fan 27185 remote goes on and off randomly. Sometimes, just the fan; sometimes just the light; sometimes both. They go on and off during the day or night.

    I want to do something so that the light and fan goes on and off only when I want it to.

    Precisely, what adjustment can I make to the control so that this problem is prevented. I have already tried to change the codes. One of the fan lights will not accept any changes. I am stumped. Please help.

Your not the only one that is having problems with Hunter remotes, they work great for around six months and then go heywire!!!! there is no much you can do about this apart from unhook your nice hunter fan and replace it with a cheaper, lesser-known brand because their remote receiver probably work better. It's a shame an established company like hunter is damaging their own reputation by putting their name on this cheap Chinese piece of garbage.

kind regards

I have a Hunter Ceiling Fan Model No. 27185. I can control the fan with the remote but can not control the lights with the remote. is there some instructions on how to operate the system?

27185 is the model # of the remote. Check to make sure your light wires are connected at the light fixture & receiver. Also, make sure your dip settings are set on the same frequency. Lastly, push the light button & pull the chain on the light.

We installed a 27185 remote kit in a hunter fan, and factory settings. The fan light goes on and off by itself. I changed the dip switches( matched them to the remote to the controller), and the fan and...

I have had the same problem with the light coming on intermittently by itself. At first I also could not change the settings and have the remote work with the new settings. But I found out that when you change the dip switch of the receiver you must turn off the power using the wall switch or the circuit breaker and turn it back on before the receiver will use the new dip setting. I am still waiting to see if the light will come back on after changing the dip switches from 1-on, 2-on, 3-on, 4-off to 1-off, 2-on, 3-on, 4-on and the remote's jumpers from 1-jumpered, 2-jumpered, 3-jumpered, 4- no jumper to 1-no jumper, 2-jumpered, 3-jumpered, 4- jumpered.

Trouble with hunter remote 27185

The problem is most likely a interruption in power. I just e-mailed Hunter asking if I could stop this from happening since my fan is over the bed. Their reply is as follows... The light will come on after power is restored following an interruption. This is a design feature of the remote control and cannot be modified or adjusted. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Fan and light control model 27157

yeah, if you take off the battery cover on your fan remote there should be something called a "dip switch". it wiil be numbered 1,2,3,4, just flip these switches up or down to match the receiver that will be located in the fan houseing or in the fan canopy.

make sure that you wire BOTH the black and black & white striped wires together to the supply, or the light won't work.

Hunter Remote Control # 27185

Do not use the factory default position in either fan. Double check the dip switches, and make sure they are the same for each individual receiver and remote.Different codes for each. Dip switches are the oppsite direction in the remote for some reason?
