Hunter Light transponder fail?


Only way to know if it's the light is to take the remote receiver out and try the pull chain on light after rewiring to house wires.

Make sure your fan is on high with the pull chain switch. Push the remote Hi button then pull the chain until it's on the high speed, Then DO NOT use the pull chain. Same with light , Push light button on remote then pull chain until it's on then leave the chain alone. If that doesn't do the trick then you probably need a new receiver.

Is there a way to take remote controll off of a fan mine stoped working after kids pulled fan or light pull


My ceiling fan loses remote control every time there is a power outage. The first thing to do is turn off power to the fan at the circuit breaker. Take the battery out of the remote and push all the buttons to eliminate a stuck button as a possible cause. Reinstall the battery. Turn on power to the fan. Check operation. You may have to pull a chain to "reeducate" the remote but you should be back up and running soon.

Have hampton bay add on remote control kit on patio ceiling fan. Battery died in the remote, so kid turned fan off with pull chain. replced battery, now cant get fan to work on any pull chain settings....


The pull switch in the fan may be broken in the off position. Luckily these are easy to replace. Purchase a new switch. Obtain a wire stripper and phillips screwdriver. Lower the light (if installed) or the blank by removing the screws. Disconnect light if installed. Unscrew nurled knob on fan switch and remove switch. Make note of where the wires go, I take a picture with my cell phone. Cut wires off as close to the old switch as you can. Strip about 1/4 to 3/8 inch of the insulation off the end with the wire stripper. Insert into the appropriate hole in the switch. Nothing to tighten to lock down here, it will hold it. Reinstall switch and light and test for proper operation.

Hunter ceiling fan 52 ",


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.

Why won't my remote for my light on the Hunter fan work? The light also will not come on when I pull the chain.


I usually discuss this exact problem with customers that have a DIY ceiling fan. First; If you just installed this fan you noticed that there are several switches on the fan and on the remote, there is also the switch that originally controlled the ceiling light fixture (If it is a dimmer switch, it MUST be replaced with a single pull switch). All of these can be set wrong. Make sure the circuit breaker is not "tripped."
To start easy; assure that the wall switch is on, (leave all the "pull chains" alone, for now) Check to see that the remote has fresh batteries. press the light switch (on the remote, if it is a dimmer type set it to high, press it several times. If this does not work leave all the switches where they are and pull the light chain once, and again try the remote for the lights only. Hopefully that worked. Now do the same for the fan, press the remote once (on any speed) If that does not work pull the fan chain once try the remote again pressing the same switch, that should work. Now that you have it working remove all the pull chains, so it won't get "confused" again. Good luck!

Remote does not consistently work


You can include a push chain switch, if theres enough room in the ceiling fan housing. This is a job for a professional electrician or appliance serviceman who is willing to modify an appliance. It will need to be tested for intrinsic safety and the work should carry some sort of warranty since the pull chain modification (if made on the ceiling fan house) will likely void any warranty. Instead, I advise that the pull switch could be intalled elsewhere in the room. However, it still remains a job for a profession electrician who can install the pull switch in parallel with the existing switch.

This would however be able to control all three fans with just one pull switch if you wanted.

Light not working by pull chain or remote.


I would try removing the remote part. Connect the two main (light & fan) wires direct to your house main. Then if the pull chain works then you just need a new remote unit.
