Hunter ceiling fan remote doesn't work

What direction does the fan go to cool the room...clockwise or counterclockwise? Also although the remote flashes a red light, it doesn't seem to change the light, speed or on and off. I checked the battery, but the red light on the remote wouldn't go on if there were no battery. I can't seem to change it with the chain either. Any suggestions?

Re: Hunter ceiling fan remote doesn't work

Counterclockwise for cooling. This blows air down. The electronics board maybe burned out. There is a small fuse and capacitor in the fan. You can buy parts for this fan.

Which direction do fan blades turn for cooling ?

Counter clockwise. If you purchased this at Home Depot or Lowes I can understand why you don't feel anything.

We got 4 HUNTER ceilin fans in one room. Model 27185-060 with remote FCC ID:IN2TX11 Two of them are runing clocwise another two in opsite side Wat can we do to run all in one direction?

Your Hunter ceiling fan is equipped with a small switch that changes the spin of the blades from clockwise to counter-clockwise. Regardless of the make or model of your ceiling fan, this switch is typically located on the center motor housing where the fan blades are attached. good-day!

Hey dale. Sounds like either the integrated remote pack inside the fan housing might be bad, or the reversal switch part. If it has a switch on the fan housing to change it from forward and reverse, you could try going to a hardware store and replacing that switch. If that doesn't work, then it is probably a bad remote receiver pack iside the fan, it will be a bigger, probably black little box. If this is the case, your better off getting a new fan, as it will cost about the same. If your fan doesn't have a little switch to change blade direction, 9 out of 10 times it is the receiver pack. If your fan does have a switch for fan direction, there is a good chance it is a bad switch. It could also be both. After 10 years with the fan, you might seriously want to consider purchasing a new fan.

Clockwise, counterclockwise which is the summer setting?

Ceiling Fan Direction These recommendations depend actually on the height and size of the room; the season; and the activity taking place in the room.

The basic fact of nature is that warm air rises to the top and cold air settles on the bottom. Air settles in layers from warm at the top to cold at the bottom, if left alone at equilibrium.

Ceiling fan recommendations:

In the winter
Set the fan to run counterclockwise (reverse; this looks clockwise as you are looking up). This will redirect the warm air from the ceiling and down the walls and into the living space where the people actually are. In a house, you would run the fan at a low speed so that you don't actually cool the warm air that you are moving downward. If you have a high ceiling, or are trying to heat a hall or a church, you may want to increase the fan speed so that the warm air will reach the living space as long as the fan speed does not create an unwanted downdraft at the people below. In the summer
In a room of normal height (8 - 10 ft), you should operate your fan so that it turns clockwise (this looks counterclockwise as you are looking up), causing a more directed downdraft, especially with the fan running slightly faster. This causes a wind-chill effect because the skin evaporates slight amounts of water from the sweat glands and thereby provides cooling through the skin's surface. However, the air is only moved but not cooled! You may find that you can turn your thermostat down a degree or two and save more money on energy costs. The air blowing down won't actually cool the room though, so you should turn the fan off when there are no people (or animals) in the room. In a high hall or church
It may be best NOT to run the fans at all in summer. This lowers the demand for cooling since the hot layer on top is an excellent insulation between the cool air near the floor (and the people) and the hot roof and outside.

A large, tall manufacturing hall would typically have different goals. There one would have a floor full of heat producing machinery plus the people operating it, working hard and welcoming a bit of a breeze. Then it would make sense to run the fans at fairly high speed to create a certain and directed downdraft. And with the shifts going throughout the days of the week, the fans should be running all the time and maybe in all seasons.

Finally, fans typically use 80-100 watts. When used properly, ceiling fans can really help to optimize the comfort level of the people and save energy and money.

I have a ceiling fan that has no reverse switch or speed chain, it was bought used...the fan obiviously can work only from a remote....i'm always going to use the fan in the counterclockwise position on...

You're going to have to have the remote control for it. Call Hunter at 1-901-745-9222 when the recording comes on, press 8, then 1, then 1 2 or 3. Give them your model # and they will get you hooked up with a remote. They may even give it to you for free, but they may make you pay for it.

Cannot change the direction of my fan...

Your reversing button for that particular model is on the remote control. There is no button on the fan body itself.

I winter it blows up to catch the warm air from the ceiling and bring it down. In summer it blows down to cool you off by evaporation.
