    I sent an email to Hunter an company and I was told that they redesigned their fans so that only your remote to your fan/light will turn it on. Your wall switch can be used only to power it off but will not power it on. I spoke with a tech at menards and was told that Ty have had several complaints about this.

SOURCE: HUNTER ceiling fan remote works with fan but not light

Unfortunately, you either have a faulty reciever or remote. A replacement will cost $30-$40 at homedepot2.gif. And it doesn't matter which is faulty because you can't purchase them seperately anyhow.

Casa Vieja ceiling fan w/remote; worked well. Then wall switch was turned on/off, chains pulled. Everything working: fan high, med and low, and light on/off/dim - except now fan won't turn off !


The chain pulling and switch flipping causes the simple logic in the remote receiver to become confused. Your only hope for restoring normal operation (short of replacement) is to disconnect power at the source, then remove remote battery and press all buttons to eliminate "stuck button" problem. Reconnect power and test operation using only the remote. If normal, you will have to decide whether to disable pull chains, wall switches, or both. If not normal, you will have to try an infinite number of combinations of pull chains, wall switches, and power on-off to get things back to normal.

Can't have fan on and lights off.


What kind of wall switch do you have?? Unless it's a wall remote,you shouldn't be using it. The wall switch should be on for the remote to work correctly.

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.

My remote lights up when you press the button but it's not controlling my fan.


Controlling a ceiling fan/light using a wall switch causes the remote control to lose its memory. You will have to start all over at the beginning. Remove batteries from the remote, push all buttons to eliminate a stuck button as a cause, then reinstall batteries but do not push any button yet. Be sure all wall switches are off. Go to the power source for the fan/light (not the wall switch) and turn it off. Wait briefly, then turn on the power at the source again. Try remote operation. If successful, use only the remote to control operation. Forget about using the wall switches.

Connecting wires


You are just missing one wire to all the circuits. The ones that work are good ... add the one wire that is not hooking up to the others to complete a serial circuit.

Turned the light switch on the wall off, now the remote will not turn the fan or the light on


The wall switch supplies power to the van, whether it's remote control or not. The wall switch must be ON for the fan to operate with the remote control. The remote simply overrides the wall switch for it's operation.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I don't know what model my fan is, but it's only 3 years old and suddenly two days ago the light and fan quit working. We replaced the light switch on the wall-nothing. Took apart whatwe could of the fan...


That may be, because you were using the Remote Control to operate it, but then turned off the wall switch instead of turning it off using the Remote Control.

Turn the wall switch back On and try to get the Remote Control to take back over the operation. If that solves your problem, in the future you will know to turn off the fan and lights with the remote, before turning off the wall switch.

Hope this helps solve your problem. My wife had to learn the same way with ours.

The remote controls the fan speed but wont dim or control the light. the unit wont work if the light switch is off so I cant use the fan at all unless the light is turned on


mcdevito75 here, Generally the Ceiling fan motor is hooked up by-passing the wall switch but still to the hot laed going to the wall switch whlie the lights are hooked up to the hot lead after the wall switch, So without the remote, Manually operate your fan and lights. First with the wall switch off the fan should work and the lights no work. Now turn the fan off with the pull chain on the fan shroud close to the ceiling. Now turn wall switch on and lights should work with wall switch and the fan should also work. if so, re-program the remote or change the batteries or even re--place the remote.

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.

Wall switch


I had this same problem (sort of) - my daughter lost the remote to our fan and it would not work from the wall switch. What you have to do is go up to where your fan is connected to the ceiling, slide the canopy down, and remove the remote transmitter. Then just rewire the fan normally - white to white, black and blue to black, and the ground wires together. Turn on the power and your fan light should work with the wall switch. You will have to pull the cord for the fan to work.
