SOURCE: Hunter 3 speed ceiling fan now turns slowly

Probably a bad capacitor. What model is it? If it completely wireless (in other words: no pull chains for light or fan) the capacitor is located on the receiver for the fan (in the canopy or the lower switch housing). Unless you are handy with a soldering iron, it is easier to purchase a replacement receiver.

SOURCE: Hunter ceiling fan is stuck on high speed

If it has a chain, buy a light dimmer switch so it will not have 1 speed anymore. If it has a remote control, buy a new remote control like your old one. Try different numbers on remote control.

SOURCE: Our Hunter fan speed controller is not working.

Hunter's remote systems are notorious for failures. We replaced ours before the fan was one year old, and then it did it again within a year after that. The warranty, of course was on the ORIGINAL part, not the new part, so Hunter will never help you out, even though their remote receivers (the part in the fan) are junk!

SOURCE: my hunter remote control ceiling fan doesn't go

if you have pull chain switches in addition to the remote control, your pull chain switch may be set to Medium, which would make the fan run on a maximum of medium speed.

Hunter Ceiling fan lost medium speed, kept hi and low. Speed control capacitor melted. Replaced both capacitors (speed and start) AND switch. Still no medium speed. Is it possible part of the motor...


well, they could have. but before you throw it out, go to the hardware store, and buy a new pull switch. either that, or just run it with the high and low speeds. It shouldn't hurt it at all. But, if there is any clicking sounds, or wierd noises coming from it , DON'T USE IT!! it may catch fire. but it did last a long time. 20 years is good for a modern celing fan. though I like my antique 1907 westinghouse 72 inch 2 blade fan. It hasn't died yet!!!

I just installed a Hunter five minute fan which says it is called the augusta. I have also installed several other hunter fans in my house through the years, and they seem to move extremely fast especially...


Speed is not a factor in moving air. You can move air with a little fan that runs real fast or you can move the same amount of air with a big fan that moves slow.

It is the pitch of the blades that moves air. Big blades with steep pitch moving slow are comparable to little blades with shallow pitch that move fast.

It seems to me someone is trying to baffel you with bull**** when they tell you CFM = watts or something similar.

The real question is, is the fan moving the air necessary to achieve the result you desire? If yes, speed is not really a factor.

Let me know if this helps you.

52 inch hunter ceiling fan with remote, making clicking noise


does the fan wobble at high speed? if so change the order of the blades to try & balance it.i.e. number the blades on a piece of tape on each--switch blade # 1 & #3-better or worse? 2&5;better or worse?etc. untill it runs smoothest.

Hunter fan with remote control was 3 speed, now only 2 speed


It sounds like fan motor is okay. There are two motor windings -- one low speed, one medium speed. Low winding gives you low speed, medium winding gives you medium speed, both windings give you high speed -- so I would say if you get high speed, both windings are good.

The remote (the hand held transmitter) controls the speed by raising and lowering the frequency of the current which is 60 cycle coming to the fan ceiling box. If the fan speed -selector switch (usually a pull switch) is set to high, when the remote (transmitter) signals the receiver to change speeds, the frequency of the current is changed by the receiver (the receiver is usually in the fan housing).

Sounds like you'll need to replace the remote system -- these come in sets, both transmitter and receiver, and cost about $30. If you're not experienced with wiring fans, you should get an electrician to do the job.

My Hunter fan will only switch from high to low speed and won't


if the three speed switch is functioning the middle speed winding is bad.  Either replace the fan or hook up a wall speed control and keep the fan on high.
