SOURCE: 3 speed Hunter Fan only has 2 speeds

Assuming that the unit was wired properly from the factory and without being able to look at the switch I would have to agree that the switch is bad. The different speeds are obtained by having a different winding for each speed. If the unit was wired properly at the factory and never had three different speeds then the switch is not rotating between all the contacts. The switch should only be a couple of dollars and would certainly be a cheap solution to try. You can check the existing switch by removing it from the circuit completely and checking the continuity with a DMM from the input to each output as you switch it. Continuity should move from one to two to three. If not the switch is bad. If the switch checks out OK then you have a bad winding in the fan and probably need a new unit. Good luck.

SOURCE: My Hunter fan will only switch from high to low speed and won't

if the three speed switch is functioning the middle speed winding is bad.  Either replace the fan or hook up a wall speed control and keep the fan on high.

SOURCE: hunter speed control problem

I have the exact same problem. Called Hunter's tech support and they confirmed the capacitor must be bad. This is the black box that has 4 wires going to the switch. They are sending me a new one for under $12. I haven't received it yet, but the wires from it going to the switch can be removed from the switch by shoving a paper clip along side the wire, this'll release the spring clip holding the wire in. Not sure, but I may have to cut and wire nut any wires that go elsewhere.

I recommend you call them too and as long as you have the 5 digit model number (usually on top of fan) they should be able to get you what you need.

P.S. it is highly unlikely that it is in the switch. I tried replacing it with one from Home Depot and I actually got Low-Off-High, which is worse. The Hunter tech support guy said you can't use after market switches with their fans.

SOURCE: Our Hunter fan speed controller is not working.

Hunter's remote systems are notorious for failures. We replaced ours before the fan was one year old, and then it did it again within a year after that. The warranty, of course was on the ORIGINAL part, not the new part, so Hunter will never help you out, even though their remote receivers (the part in the fan) are junk!

SOURCE: Our hunter fan won't work on high speed any

Sounds like the variable speed switch may be worn out.
You should be able to purchase replacement switch at the local home depot- type store in the electrical supplies.
Trying to get an exact match to replace may be a bit difficult, but a similar 3 speed switch should work just fine.

Hunter fan remote 85095-02, red signal light glowing continualy


It's continually transmitting. My guess is there is a button stuck causing the unit to run down batteries. If no button stuck, you'll probably have to replace the remote -- it's a fulty transistor.

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.

Not working


How old is it? If it is more than a couple of years old, the motor windings for highest speed probably failed. They can not be repaired as cheaply as buying a new fan.
