Just about all handheld remotes have a carbon pad under the button that makes contact with the bare "traces" on the printed circuit board within the remote. Over time, the use and handling of these remotes gets the carbon pads remarkably dirty from the oils on our hands so the remotes are either difficult, unreliable or quit altogether. Simple solution is to take the remote apart and clean with plain rubbing alcohol and a q-tip. Remove the batteries, and look for screws that hold the two pieces together. Manufacturers like to hide screws under labels so remember to look there. In today's world alot of things just snap together and are easy to unsnap once you get started. If this is the case, use a small flat screwdriver to begin prying the top and bottom halves apart, be patient and try not to break the clips, once you get one to pop, work your way around the remote until it separates. Remove the rubber button pad and turn it over to see the carbon pads, inspect the circuit board and note where the carbon pads touch the bare traces, if these look gummy and oily this is probably your problem. Use the alcohol and q-tips to clean all the carbon pads and traces, alcohol won't harm anything so use it to your hearts content. Dry with a soft lint free type cloth and re-assemble, install the batteries, and test the remote.

Good luck

SOURCE: no connection between the fan remote and Ceiling fan

The remote-controlled fans that I've seen all have DIP switches in the transmitter (the "remote") and receiver (up by the fan). For the remote to operate the fan, both sets of switches have to be set to the same code. If you happened to bump the DIP switches (and change the code) while replacing the battery, the fan would no longer respond to the remote.

It's been four months since you posted this problem, so you've probably figured that out by now. Still, other users may run into the same problem occasionally.

SOURCE: Fan works, light doesn't on Hunter ceiling fan

I would begin by testing each bulb in a different socket somewhere in the house.

SOURCE: wall remote that controls ceiling fan & lights not working

Either the bulb is blown or the connection under the wire nut is loose. First check the bulb then turn off the power at the panel and check each wire nut by unscrewing it and making sure that the wires are tightly twisted together before reinstalling the wire nut.

My harbor breeze ceiling wont turn on.


  • Disconnect power at the source, not at the fan
  • Remove battery from remote. Press all buttons, then reinstall battery
  • Restore power. Using ONLY the remote, test operation
  • If the fan still does not work, disconnect power again and try every known combination of remote buttons and switch settings until the fan works or you give up in frustration.

Remote quit working for litex ceiling fan


after changing the batteries make sure you didn't change the remote code. If you didn't there should be a reset button inside the battery compartment, it may just look like a small hole. Just use a toothpick and insert it into the hole and lightly depress the reset switch.Replace the battery cover and try using the remote again.

Need to program Hampton Bay Ceiling fan remote control CHO88T7030T, HELP!


Change the battery. This is the first step when troubleshooting a ceiling fan remote. The easiest fix to any remote control problem begins with battery replacement. A 9-volt battery is needed to operate all Hampton Bay ceiling fan remotes.

Check the light switch used for the ceiling fan. The light switch found on the wall must be in the "on" position. This allows the ceiling fan to be operated by remote control

Re-program your remote. If battery replacement fails to get your remote working again, try to reprogram the remote. Open the battery cover you will see 4 dip switches. These switches must be set to the same position as the receiver on the fan. Use the screw driver to move the dip switches either up or down.

Follow the previous step to change the frequency if the ceiling fan is randomly turning on or off. Other electronic devices such as garage door openers can interfere with the ceiling fans receiver, causing it to randomly turn on or off.

The remote on my Hunter ceiling fan (Model: 27185 - 060) does not activate the ceiling fan. I can turn the light on manually, but not the ceiling fan. I cannot see the antenna on the ceiling fan.


The first thing you need to do, is change the battery(s) in the hand held remote, as well as the battery(s) in the receiver inside the fan's cowling. Weak batteries will limit a remotes operation.
And, FYI - there is no antenna on the ceiling fan.

I hope this helps you. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

10.27.09 - Ceiling Fan Light Kit not Working.


the remote does control the light. i think it's the bottom button, once to turn it on, again to turn it off. there should have been a blue wire connected in to the wires in the ceiling, this is power for the light. if only the white, black, and copper are connected, the light part won't work but the fan will (usually)

Need instruction page for the Hunter light/fan remote control


There is a battery in the hand held remote and another battery in the receiver which gets tucked into the ceiling mount cover. Remove the ceiling cover and you will see the battery there, usually a 12 volt battery.

The upp/down slide is a dimmer.

In the event that changing the batteries doesn't solve your problems, Hunter makes replacement remote sets, available at Home Depot, lowes, etc and usually around twenty dollars.

Remote Control


Change the remote control batteries. Because of the motor construction, it needs to turn on in the highest speed setting. This is why it defaults to the high speed mode. Put new batteries in the remote and that ought to fix it.

Hunter ceiling fan w/ remote won't work


You need to change the receiver inside the fan. It is located in the top canopy of the fan. you don't have to buy a new remote just the receiver to save money and match the dip switches to the remote.
