Question about Hunter Dryers
We have a Hunter Grand Lodge ceiling fan, model #23272. I've changed the dip switch settings on the receiver and remote 3 times now and when the the ceiling fan is on high speed it sporadically changes its speed and turns the light on/off at will.
That's a tough one; this could be coming from a malfunctioning transmitting or receiving unit, or outside interference.
Did the handheld remote get dropped just before this problem started? Or maybe have something spilled on it? One way of ruling out spurious emissions coming from the transmitter is, once the fan is operating, remove the batteries from the remote. If it still changes modes it would NOT be the remote. Proceed to the next step.
Have you had electrical storms or power outages around the time that the problem started? If so the receiver may have taken an electrical hit. Inspect it carefully for signs of arcing or smoke, fried wires. Also sniff it, if it has a funny (burnt) smell that's where the problem is. Of course the receiver could malfunction without and power surges and that would be harder to isolate.
Lastly, outside interference; This is very hard to determine without any test equipment. If someone living near you installed a garage door opener, Set-up an amateur radio station, or started using some piece of new electronics you might be interfered with you. I have seen electric lawnmowers do some strange things (interference). I was also was once on a call where the guy next door actually went out and bought a programmable remote control to mess with my clients TV, some kind of neighborhood squabble.
Hope this helps, best of luck to you.
