Try "oiling the fan" and also if that doesn't work, change the fan.

make sure that you have the power cord on the fan in the right position. Pull it once to see if that starts the motor. Then go back to your remote and try starting the fan from the remote.

SOURCE: trying to replace 3 speed

The pull switch has 4 wires, L, 1, 2, 3.
Connect ' L' to the reverse switch red wire or the wire that is free.
Connect ' 3 ' to the main black ( hot ) wire entering the fan.
Connect ' 1 ' to the capacitor's lowest uF eg. ( 1.5 uF )
Connect ' 2 ' to the capacitor's next uF eg. ( 3 uF )
the Capaciotr also has to be connected to the neutral wire entering the fan, usually black attached to another color wire. If you have a VOM tester, veryfy that it is a neutral wire.

How do I get the remote to work fan and light

There are dip switches in the fan and in the remote that need to be set to the same numbers. You can set them to whatever you want, as long as they match. If these numbers don't match it won't control your fan.

Here's a few lines from the user manual:
"IMPORTANT! Before installing this control, check the factory dip switch settings. Refer to Figure 1. Be sure the dip switch positions of the transmitter and the receiver match, or the ceiling fan will not function."

Here's a link to the PDF manual, which has an explanation and a figure in the middle of where you can locate these dip switches on the transmitter and the receiver both.

Hunter Ceiling fan remote is operating all the other ceiling fans as well

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.

Hope this makes sense.

How do I change the frequency on the remote and the ceiling fan? We are on the same frequency as our neighbour.

You'll need to find the dip switches. The dip switch for the remote is inside the battery compartment. You usually have to remove the batteries to see it. The dip switch for the fan is usually on top of the motor. It can also be inside the switch housing or the ceiling canopy. You can set the switches to any combinationan as lonf as they are the same for both.

DIP Switches don't seem to matter

You need to completely power off (wall switch or breaker) when changing the dip switches. Not just power off from remote because it will keep previous setting. I learned it the hard way....

Need code for remote to ceiling fan

There is no set code from the factory; usually all the dip switches are in the same direction. In order to find the code, you will have to take the fan down, pull the remote out far enough to observe the dip switches, and then set them the same way on the remote.

Two ceiling fans, both remotes control the same fan

Most likely the dip switches on the remote receivers don't match (on the second fan, the one that doesn't work). While the remote dip swithes on both remotes match the working fan. You can simply reset the dip switches on the second fan receiver to match the one working remote, i.e. you don't need to have a second remote, one can work both fans as long as the codes (dip switches match). If you want you can make all the remotes the same, that way you have two remotes, or if you want them independent each remote and remote receiver must have unique codes (dip switch settings).
