I have changed the remotes on 5 Hunter fans in the last 3 months. They have a problem with how some of them mount, that makes them drop down and vibrate loose. If you do not have a wall switch for it, you may want to go to pull chains, or just replace the remote. It is NOT the controller you hold in your hand, but the part in the fan. (never the easy way right?) The remote is not hard to change, but you DO have to let the fan hang from the holder on the ceiling bracket, It gets too heavy to hold while you change the remote.
All but one of the remotes I have changed, came from a mass market type of builder/handyman store, and they have just replaced the part at no charge.

Just installed a heller ceiling fan with remote, it works fine from the remote but the light nolonger works from the light switch


All the switch on the wall does is turn the power on/off. You have to do everything from the remote with the wall switch on.

The light on the remote is a battery light. First mistake was buying a store brand fan which are mostly low-end parts. Try adding a different remote w/receiver.

My hunter ceiling fan light keeps turning on randomly, it has been installed for @3 years (just recently started doing this). I have a remote control


There may be another remote control in the room/house that is causing it to turn on. A member of my family has a fan that uses a remote, when they turn on their stereo it also activated the dimmer on their ceiling fan light.

step 1 would be to ensure that it isnt other remotes that are causing this to happen.

step 2 would be to replace the batteries in the remote for the fan. once they are replaced use the remote to turn on and off the functions that are being turned on randomly.

if it is not anything to do with remotes, have the person that put it in for you disconnect it from power completely to try to reset the control board.

if that doesnt help, you may have a defective product that needs to be replaced.

if this doesnt work, report back with some more detail and I will try to help.

My control won't activate the light on my Hunter fan. The light comes on via pull chain fine, and the control works the 3 speeds on the fan, but the light won't respond.


Check the wiring on your receiver to make sure the light wire is connected.You have to have the light on with the pull chain and then use the remote to turn it on/off.

The remote control will no longer turn off the lights on the fan but will still turn the fan blades on and off. What do you suggest? Would getting a new remote control solve the problem? If so, how do I...


You remote is working fine but for the control on the light switch. If teh fan is switched on and off then the communication is good enough and the remote and the main unit is communicating. Hence remove the remote control and clean the pads of the light button. Dry up if possible and if there is a carbon track, the you can use a carbon pen to make up the lost track, or if the pad has lost the carbon pad then stick one conductive pad so that the circuit is activated. I hope you try this out. Good day

Remote not working at all


Check the fan and the remote to see the code switches are same. Sometimes depending on the age and humidity you may have to slide the switches back and forth to clean the contacts. Did it ever work? Are the batteries in the proper polarities? The fan and remote have to have the same numbers picked to operate properly.

Remote lights/but fan doesn't work


Don't have a solution to this problem, but I'm having a similar problem. The remote works for the fan but the other day we had a light bulb burn out and ever since then the switch on the remote for the light will not work, but the fan works just fine. If anyone has a solution please post it or email me at dustinbrown_18@hotmail.com Thanks
