Question about Hunter Dryers

I have a model 51049 Hunter Louden brushed nickel low profile ceiling fan with light; my electrician installed it, but there is a noise like a piece of metal being hit, a scraping noise, which occurs

Why does my brand new Hunter ceiling fan make a scraping noise?

I have the exact same fan with the exact same problem. I kept taking it apart and could not find the problem until I got it completely apart and took the big housing off. I saw the problem immediately. A couple of the wires were hanging too low and scraping on the round drum that spins. I'm glad I found it, because over time this would have worn the insulation off the wires and created a problem. A potential fire hazard even. I took one of the stiffer solid wires coming from the ceiling and used it to loop around the flimsier stranded wires that were hanging down and scraping. I rolled it all up tight as close to the ceiling as I could and put it all back to together. The fan is beautifully silent now.

I installed it myself. That's my excuse. Your electrician should know better and if he made the rookie mistake of not clearing those wires, he should take it apart and fix it himself for free.

SOURCE: we have a hunter type 2 ceiling fan installed on a bedroom ceilin

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.

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: Remote controlled ceiling fan has mind of it's own.

I have the same fan. The fan and the remote have some "jumpers" which allow you to change the codes, useful if someone else nearby has the same fan. You can see the jumpers inside the remote, open the back cover... you'll see "4 3 2 1" on the circuit board. Unfortunately you'll need to dismount the fan to change its jumpers, they need to be the same as the jumpers in your remote (which you can move around pretty easily).

make sure you have the remotes/receivers set to different jumpers. I installed 2 fans and had the same problem, just had to change the jumpers on one of the fans and the corresponding remote

SOURCE: Hunter ceiling fan-just installed -possible speed control problem

Sounds like the fan is defective. All internal wiring from the switch to the motor is factory installed. The fan has power going to it. Just to make sure, double check the wiring from the ceiling fixture to the fan.
Problem could be a faulty switch on the fan or faulty motor(bad winding for med. speed). Try reverse switch on the fan to operate the opposite direction and see if medium speed works. If medium does work in opposite direction, it pretty much points to a defective fan. In any case, unless you discover that the ceiling wires were reversed going into the fan, I'd say new fan to the returns dept.

Your question is too broad. Do you need help with the mechanical installation or the wiring? Be more specific.

Hunter ceiling fan. Lights and fans turn on and off by themselves.Both fans are on the same wall switch and are operated by separate remotes.


I just installed a 2nd hunter fan model 23811 that also seems to be controlled by grimlins. If the power is left on, the light and fan randomly turn on and off. And no, it is not due to fans being on the same frequency. It appears to be an issue with the control module. I'm contacting Hunter.
