Sometimes fan remotes can get interference from several rf sources (maybe another fan remote or garage door opener, etc). You can try to change the DIP switches in the remote and the reciever to a different frequency. The switches in the remote are probably in the battery compartment, and on the reciever which is located in the ceiling canopy (most likely), or in the round box where the light kit attaches.

Why does our remote receiver, model #85482-01, keep resetting itself?


That's a tough one; this could be coming from a malfunctioning transmitting or receiving unit, or outside interference.

Did the handheld remote get dropped just before this problem started? Or maybe have something spilled on it? One way of ruling out spurious emissions coming from the transmitter is, once the fan is operating, remove the batteries from the remote. If it still changes modes it would NOT be the remote. Proceed to the next step.

Have you had electrical storms or power outages around the time that the problem started? If so the receiver may have taken an electrical hit. Inspect it carefully for signs of arcing or smoke, fried wires. Also sniff it, if it has a funny (burnt) smell that's where the problem is. Of course the receiver could malfunction without and power surges and that would be harder to isolate.

Lastly, outside interference; This is very hard to determine without any test equipment. If someone living near you installed a garage door opener, Set-up an amateur radio station, or started using some piece of new electronics you might be interfered with you. I have seen electric lawnmowers do some strange things (interference). I was also was once on a call where the guy next door actually went out and bought a programmable remote control to mess with my clients TV, some kind of neighborhood squabble.

Hope this helps, best of luck to you.

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.

Most likely this is caused by radio interference from some other device nearby. Try changing the "channel" by changing the dip switches on both devices and make sure they match. :)

Can't control light at switch


It is wired so that you control the light with the remote. You cannot have it both ways. You either control it with the wall switch or the remote. Once you kill the power to the receiver by turning off power at the wall switch, you are only applying power to the receiver when you turn power back on. You are not supplying power to the light. You then must turn on the light with the remote. This is the purpose of a remote fan/light control. You could rewire it to control the light with the switch and only control the fan with the remote if you wish, but as you have it now, it is working correctly.

Hunter fan/light with remote installed turns on by itself


Many times this is caused by stray frequencies in the neighborhood. And, sometimes changing the frequencies on the remote and receiver reduce the occurrence.

But it sounds like this may not be the case, here. If not, the receiver in the fan is the culprit and should be replaced. No danger, just annoying.
