Question about Hunter 90021 Century Table Fan
I have had the fan for several years, so it isn't under warranty. The other speeds slowly started failing about 2 years ago, now it only works on the high setting.

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.

I have the exact same problem. Called Hunter's tech support and they confirmed the capacitor must be bad. This is the black box that has 4 wires going to the switch. They are sending me a new one for under $12. I haven't received it yet, but the wires from it going to the switch can be removed from the switch by shoving a paper clip along side the wire, this'll release the spring clip holding the wire in. Not sure, but I may have to cut and wire nut any wires that go elsewhere.
I recommend you call them too and as long as you have the 5 digit model number (usually on top of fan) they should be able to get you what you need.
P.S. it is highly unlikely that it is in the switch. I tried replacing it with one from Home Depot and I actually got Low-Off-High, which is worse. The Hunter tech support guy said you can't use after market switches with their fans.

there is a small black box in with the wireing on the fan unit ...this box controlls the fan through your remote ...it is esentially a switch this unit is likely the cause ...remove and replace .....

Check all of your electrical connections, and ensure voltage is 120V to ground. If you have a dimmer switch replace with either a fan control switch or a simple on/off switch.
