Call Aloha with a upc number and they will tell you.
The upc number is located on the motor housing on the same sticker as the toll free number. They will be able to help you.

I'm pretty sure that home depot does sell remotes for that brand, although you may have to buy a new receiver to go with it. Otherwise try a lighting store near where you live. They seem to be able to order things like that.

SOURCE: Ceiling fan light flashes
There is a small part in the light kit of the fan connected to the lighting circuit. The part is relatively common to these fans and is most likely in yours as well. The sticker on the side of it shows model 98480X part number 98480-02. Clip the leads to remove this part and wire-nut the wires back together bypassing it (black/red to black and white to white). This will get your unit back to normal and the switches will still work. I spoke with Hunter and this part has nothing to do with the remote control features of the fan. It is a wattage limiter. If you attempt to put bulbs into the fan that are higher than the recommended wattage this unit steps the voltage down to prevent overheating and possible electrical issues. Removing it will not prevent the fan from functioning but you should be aware that it is in there by federal regulation requirement and without it you could risk electrical failure or fire if you put bulbs in that are too high a wattage. If you call the manufacturer to report the issue they will send you a new lighting housing for your unit which will have a new limiter in it and solve your issue as well. In my case I needed the light working so I bypassed it then requested the part. In the meantime I just made sure that the bulbs I was using were well within spec. In my case the limiter was just on the light, but depending on the model or how the wires were nutted together by your electrician if the fan was also nutted on after this device it would certainly have issues as your bulbs would now be limited to the total wattage of the bulbs and fan combined. Hope this helps all!

Three possibility for the strobe problem:
1. Loose wire connection. Shut down the circuit breaker, pull down the switch, open the ceiling fan cover and check for any loose wiring connected to the main bulb, If there isnt any, remove the bulb and spray WD-40 or contact cleaner to the receptacle. Replace the bulb.
2. Replace the bulb with a new one. Preferably incandescent or a warm white energy saver.
3. There maybe ghosts fooling around. (I'm kidding)
Hope this helps,
