Hunter Palermo Ceiling Fan Problems-model # 21617

Just talked to Hunter after much difficulty getting a proper phone number for them. After describing the problem with my Hunter Palermo model # 21617, they told me they have had to upgrade that fan & it requires a new remote & receiver, for the tidy sum of $45.01, which is out of the consumer's pocket. This should solve all the problems people have been having with this fan not working, coming off & on when it wants to, not dimming, etc. In other words, the fan has been faulty since its' inception & the company should have had to correct it at their expense. Now, I have to get someone to install the new receiver, which will cost additional money. It looked like a great fan, made by a company with a good reputation, but this is very disappointing news from a company I had always thought stood behind their products. If youl have problems with a Hunter fan, let me be the first to give you the real number for reaching them. It is: 1-888-830-1326. They do not list an email contact for them or a phone number on their website. Hope this is helpful information.

    The click does not take you to Hunter. I have listed their phone number in my original comment, so it is there.

The solution is posted in my initial problem. You must contact Hunter & replace the receiver & remote, at your expense.

Hunter fan remote bypass

This fan uses a "ballast" to run the fan. The ballast (part #272) probably contains wiring for multiple speeds. Here is a manual that discusses the wiring-
To use a wall mounted fan dimmer, you need to identify the high speed wires and connect them to the dimmer switch. This method will bypass the other speed windings and is not as power efficient.
