Question about Hunter Dryers
Fans are not difficult to replace / install. The difficult part is the lifting and support part when connecting the wiring and securing the support in place. The main safety feature is to turn off the power at the circuit breaker or fuse panel, don't just use the wall switch.
If you can get two ladders in place and have someone hold the fan while you disconnect the support from the ceiling bracket and disconnect the wiring it is a very simple job.
Otherwise, you just have to take your time and make sure to follow the instructions and connect the house wires to the correct fan wires.
If you do not feel confident, then it is best to find an electrician or handyman who can do the job for you.

Chances are the wire nut came off the connection for the light unit. If you're handy, shut off the fan mechanism at the fan (pull chain until fan is off), then turn off the power at the breaker box, ensure the power is off at the light switch and proceed to unscrew the fixture from the mounting unit (attached to the ceiling).
Carefully support the fan unit with one hand ( there should be a silver grounding wire that will help support the unit - unless it wasn't installed properly in which case the unit will be heavy - try to balance on the ladder if it's tall enough). Look for the white and black wires - one will be for the fan unit, one for the light unit.
Check to see both are securely attached by wire nuts. If one is loose or has come apart, carefully re-twist the wires tight (turn to the right as this is the way the wire nut twists on so it will stay together when you replace the wire nut. If when you replace the wire nut the wires are still loose, replace the wire nut - they do get old and tired.
At this point I would turn on the power at the breaker box and turn on the switch for the fan on the wall. Then try the light unit - see if that fixed the problem. If it has, turn off power again, replace the unit the same way you took it down - if not, there is a problem in the internal wiring . . . check with warranty depot.
Hope this helps,

The part you are making reference to is a capacitor and you can very likely get a replacement one at any local Radio Shack store. It is best to take the defective part with you so they can review all the markings to get the best replacment part you need.
If the capacitor isn't connected with wire nuts, you'll want to cut the wires as close to the capacitor as possible, so you'll have some wire to reconnect the new part. I also suggest you take a picture with your digital camera or camera phone BEFORE you remove the bad part, that way, you can refer back to it, when you are installing the new part.
With any electrical device, you will want to disconnect it from the power source before doing any repair or service work on it, to prevent electrical shock hazards. In the case of a ceiling fan, you can either remove the fan from the ceiling or turn off the breaker that provides power to that room (check to make certain you got the correct breaker turned off!) Also, you can make sure the wall switch that controls this fan, if you have one, is turned "off". You can tape over the switch to remind others not to turn it on, etc. while you get the parts to make the repair.
Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
