Question about Hunter Ceiling Fan Light Switch Control
You need to buy & install a new light switch. Should be a two wire switch that you should be able to find at Home Depot, Lowes or a real fan store.

Okay. Turn off circuit breaker. Take the bottom off the fan. Mark how the wires are connected. Remove switch by unscrewing the sleeve you mentioned. Take the switch to Home Depot (or the like) -- buy a replacement.
If you have to turn the breaker back on during this process, make sure you have a wire nut over the end of each of the loose wires you disconnected from the switch.
After you take the switch out, you'll know how to reinstall it, so I won't go thru that.

if you indeed have a 23852 hunter original...
Black goes to L, High is Red, Gray is medium and yellow is low. Make sure you have the right switch.

SOURCE: Hunter Fan problem
Thge black boxes are capacitors. One is a single and the other is a dual. Evidently the dual runs the two lower speeds and the single run the high speed.
You can test capacitors for basic operation with an analog voltmeter set to Ohms (Rx1 setting is best) by charging up the capacitor with the leadshooked up in one direction, and then reversing them to watch for the slight jump as the capacitor discharges back into the meter... note that this test only works with an analog meter and it must be set to ohms.
This is only a basic test for capacitors and will not indicate if it's withing specs, only that it basically works.
IMO, Hunter is known for having bad capacitors. I've just purchased two fans and already had to swap out the light kits, which contains the capacitors and switches, in one becuse of poor operation and excessive humming noise. since the other fans has the same componenets, other than being a different color, I also thought to try the light kit/capacitor assembly in the fan I've already installed before also installing the second fan.
Guess what, the other set of electircal components with the capacitors runs the fan slower and hums louder.
According to Hunter's web site, humming is a sign of poor engineering in ceiling fans (meaning a power hum rather than a hum from loose components) I agree and Lowes is about to get two Hunter fans back as my three cheapo fans that came with my house do not hum and also the one in my old house did not hum and moved more air.
Even the better capacitor set that I switched out still hums to some degree, so I'm climing Hunter's using **** components, probably becuse their chinese suppliers are screwing them and they're not bothering to keep up the quality control.

It sounds that fan use to work and lights and you did correct thing by changing battery. I've had this problem and it just needs the reciever replaced. Reciever is located at electrical connection in ceiling. Just buy a new universal wireless remote and reciever at any home depot. if dont fill safe doing this task should call an electician to do job or someone with electrical skills.
