Question about Hunter Ceiling Fan Control Switch

1 Answer

Hunter ceiling fan

I have 3 Hunter 5 blade, flush mounted ceiling fans with two light bulb light fixture operated with a programmed remote control through each bedrooms original light switch. In two of the three ceiling fans, a light bulb burned out and now the remote will not work to turn on the fan or lights. We can turn the light on with the pull chain but when clicking on the remote to operate the fan, all we hear is a click and the fan will not operate. I've replaced the battery in the remote but this did not help. Any ideas? Mike

Re: Hunter ceiling fan

Sounds like the remote receiver units (located where the mains connect to the fans) took a surge and have failed.

The transmitter is the piece you hold in your hand, the reciever is the part that fits inside the ceiling fan. It usually goes inside where a lamp attaches to the bottom of the fan.
