SOURCE: Hunter fan/light with remote installed turns on by itself

Many times this is caused by stray frequencies in the neighborhood. And, sometimes changing the frequencies on the remote and receiver reduce the occurrence.

But it sounds like this may not be the case, here. If not, the receiver in the fan is the culprit and should be replaced. No danger, just annoying.

SOURCE: Hunter fan wiring

sounds like one of your connections is loose. Im not sure if i completely understand your description of how you re-hoked up your fan. Please tell me how many wires your fan has and colors and how many wires you have on the sensor remote. (lots of times if you draw a wiring diagram on paper you can figure it out) Basically you should have power coming from ceiling to remote sensor. Then the remote sensor should throw the power to either the fan or the light, so there should be two seperate leads coming out of the remote sensor to control either the fan or the light independantly.

it also could be one of the the jumpers fell out of the remote
they are located just above the battery. you will need to match the placement of the jumpers with the receiver mounted in the fan.

Do you have mod.#98480x light limiter A


This is a wattage limiter inside the the fan. If you have replaced the lamps recently, you have probably put in those with greater wattage than permitted. Replace the lamps with same as original. If it still flashes, you could remove the light limiter and wire direct.

How do I stop my ceiling fan light from flashing?


Make sure the wattage is correct. If it is then try a lower wattage.

Is it dengerous to bypass wattage limiter


What do mean "wattage limiter"? Do you mean a dimmer switch? If so, what do you mean by "bypass"? Your bulbs (if in USA) are rated for 110-120 volts, and use whatever wattage they say they are rated at. Wattage is the amount of 'power' consumed. By "bypassing the switch", I assume you mean direct wiring them. IF so, they will only use whatever they are rated at.

Wattage limiter hunter ceiling fan


As per the Energy Policy Act of 2005, all ceiling fans manufactured or imported into the United States must utilize a light bulb wattage limiter as of January 1, 2007. This limiter limits the capacity of the fan's light kit to a maximum of 40 watts per bulb. Not very bright at all!

Put in LED lamps and save a lot of work. Go to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WeWSKNe64A it will show you how.

We purchased a hunter grand visita and when we turn the light on a the breaker box or the switch plate there is a delayed reaction before the light comes on whats going on?


Here is what hunter technical support says about this.

"The light fixtures are manufactured with a limiter that prevents a higher than recommended wattage bulb from working. The limiter causes the slight delay even when the correct bulbs are is in use."

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!
