Why does fan no longer respond to remote?

Remote controlled ceiling fans do not respond favorably to wall switches. To restore order, you will have to start over. Shut down fan power at the source. Set the wall switch to ON and promise to never, ever use it again. Turn on power at the source. Try remote fan and light control functions. If either does not work, there could be pull-chain switches on the fixture that are interfering. Troubleshoot to get both fan and lights controlled only by the remote.

I have a hunter fan model 20754 i need to know how i can control the light and fan separately with a two wire switch

there should be a pull chain somewhere that you can turn off the light with. There is no way except a remote unit that a 2 wire switch can control 2 different functions(fan & light)

Fixed Hunter ceiling fan with remote light pin out wiring 9 wire plug search words
Hunter Ceiling Fan with remote, fails to turn on light, fails to turn on fan..remote receiver is Cp9430r
1) Test your remote, Hunter uses Radio Frequency remote, point RF remote one inch from antenna of working AM radio, press each button on remote, each button will produce static sound from AM radio, if no sound..check battery wiring or solder connection on loop antenna of remote. If no sound on one or more buttons, disassemble and wash key pad with dish soap, rinse and fan dry, retest. If still one button no work apply graphite paint to button to rebuild conductivity of button.
2) Cp9430r receiver is below fan and above light. Remove light assembly, check receiver dip switches, mine was #5 On 1~4 Off, check remote control dip switches in 9v battery compartment also set #5 On 1~4 Off, new 9v battery still no Fan reversal "click" sound heard coming from the large Blue fan reversal relay located inside the Cp9430 receiver. All other buttons control transistors and will make no sound even if they are working.
3) Disassemble / unplug 9 wire plug from Cp9430r receiver, place receiver on wooden table, 9 wire plug has two empty pin squares, one empty in the center, the other empty we will call #1 ..counting clockwise #2,#3...#4,#5..#6,#7and finally top center next to empty #1 is #8. Now #8 is 110v hot/black ...& #4 neutral/white.
4) Shock Danger..carefully apply ac volts to pins #8,#4 use tape if needed, locate quad operational amplifier i call it radio receiver chip HA17324 on board, google HA17324 Datasheet, locate leg #14 it is across from leg #1. Locate small yellow ceramic capacitor very near leg #14, use capacitor's neg as neg for voltmeter, test volts at #1,#7,#8 and #14. My #1 was 3.1v, #7 3.2v, #8 3.25v and #14 .01v ...why #14 so low? I monitored each leg while pressing remote control changes. **Desperate, I sparked (1/2 second or less) #14 with 3.14v from positive leg of yellow capacitor** and retested all legs, no change except now #14 rests at .02v and jumps to 2.5v~2.8v when any button on the remote is pressed then rests at .02v. Now Lights work, Fan speeds work, Reverse rotation Works :-)
Pin Out on 9 wire plug, #1 Empty pin, #2 Alternates w up/down fan rotation, #3 goes to 5uf fan capacitor other side of cap goes to white/neutral AC Line, #4 AC Line neutral, #5 goes to Triac? speeds? , #6 Alternates up/down fan rotation goes to up/dn blue relay, #7 goes to up/dn blue relay looks to be AC hot looking for fan probably paired with #3 changing sides at up/dn blue relay, #8 AC Line hot in. Why did **sparking** work, smarter people might know, i think a small spark got stuck in the chip and sparking helped the chip release it out. No electrical education, novice. Jer. 51 8,9 and 11

We just bought a house that has 3 of the same fans. THey are hunter with remote and no pull cords. The master bedroom fan doesnt work. We tried to rewire it and the only way we could get anything to...

Hi Leanne,

Most fans have green, white, black and blue wires. Green is earth or safety ground, white is neutral, black is for the fan and blue is for the light fixture. Some fans may deviate from these commonly used colors in which case you should consult the instructions. Below are links to instructions for different Hunter remote fans, additional instructions for Hunter remote fans or you can look up your fan by model number or use. It appears that the built-in remote Hunter fans have no provision for controlling a light when the fan is wired from a traditional switch instead of using the included remote, as they have only a green, white and a single black that remains powered constantly to supply the remote receiver. The hand held remote transmitter tells the receiver to switch power to the fan motor and light bulbs as needed.

It is possible that the transmitter or receiver you're using in this room is not working. Try using one of the other remotes with the non-working fan by matching the code of the remote to the fan. If it doesn't work, try selecting a different code on the fan and match it on the remote (in case there's a problem with that particular code in this location). Try all (or as many as you care) codes to see if any codes work with this remote.

By this time, you should have either found a working code with this remote and are all done, or still have a non-working fan. Since you have tried more than one remote - and know that one of them worked in the other room, suspicion falls on a faulty fan or integrated remote receiver. You can replace the fan if you like with a traditional fan and light and purchase an after market or third party RF remote control if you no longer wish to get an integrated remote receiver.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks!

I have a Hampton Bay ceiling fan. It stopped working. all the wires appear to be attached except the green wire (ground), it is attached to the mounting bracket, but no where on the other end. Could this...

The green wire is a safety ground. Leaving it unconnected is not good from a safety standpoint, but it would not keep the fan from running.

If this Hampton Bay fan has a remote control, and if you have good batteries in the remote, then you most likely have a failed receiver in the fan. I had one of those to fail at my house, so I replaced the receiver and it failed again in less than a year. Then I got a different fan.

Be sure to turn off the breaker before you poke around in the fan; don't rely on the wall switch alone for safety. Good luck!

Light remote control stopped working

most of my fan controls have done this to me. you know the reciever is working cuz the fan works fine. you need to dis assemble the remote completely and clean the contacts for the light button. mine are two small black dots that seem to keep getting slimey and wont work till i clean them, then all works like brand new again.

good luck.

The Hampton Bay Altura Ceiling fan functions only with remote.

I contacted the manufacturer ( after my Altura fan would run on high speed only and the remote would not control any thing. They said their was a manufacturing defect with a capacitor that affected many of the Altura fans. We are now on a waiting list for a new capacitor and housing, because they did not have enough replacement parts.

Remote control

in the remote and the fan the little blue box is called a dip switch
you will have to open fans base to access the remote power sender
on both the fan and remote the dip switches have to match in order for the remote to work the fan properly
or your signal will never make it to remote box
