Question about Hunter Dryers
Try this. To change fan from counterclockwise to clockwise get the fan going on high. Hold the hi button while switching the wall switch from ON to OFF to ON quickly the fan and will switch direction. To go from clockwise to counterclockwise just hold down the low speed button on the remote until it switches direction. Hope this helps. It only took us seven years to figure it out.

Look on the switchcup where the pull chain for the fan is at.

There should be a reversing switch located on the housing

There is a switch on the housing of the fan. It is under the blades and above the lites if you have lights. Also same area as the chains. That is the reverse switch you might have hit it when cleaning the fan. just flip the switch iy goes left to right or reverse.
Good Luck and please rate

I was puzzled too... here's my fix... the remote has six buttons, the very small one at the top is the reversing button. Remote is part # 85095. It's a Westside II fan, bought at Costco.

You will most likely need to replace the receiver with a new one from hunter. The receiver is actually a complete controller and contains the receiver, relays (which you hear clicking) and starting condensors(large capacitors which hold a charge that is "dumped" over the windings to get the motor to start from a dead stop). These appear to be pretty tightly assembled unless you have a desire to start replacing parts "off the board."

SOURCE: Hunter Fan problem
Thge black boxes are capacitors. One is a single and the other is a dual. Evidently the dual runs the two lower speeds and the single run the high speed.
You can test capacitors for basic operation with an analog voltmeter set to Ohms (Rx1 setting is best) by charging up the capacitor with the leadshooked up in one direction, and then reversing them to watch for the slight jump as the capacitor discharges back into the meter... note that this test only works with an analog meter and it must be set to ohms.
This is only a basic test for capacitors and will not indicate if it's withing specs, only that it basically works.
IMO, Hunter is known for having bad capacitors. I've just purchased two fans and already had to swap out the light kits, which contains the capacitors and switches, in one becuse of poor operation and excessive humming noise. since the other fans has the same componenets, other than being a different color, I also thought to try the light kit/capacitor assembly in the fan I've already installed before also installing the second fan.
Guess what, the other set of electircal components with the capacitors runs the fan slower and hums louder.
According to Hunter's web site, humming is a sign of poor engineering in ceiling fans (meaning a power hum rather than a hum from loose components) I agree and Lowes is about to get two Hunter fans back as my three cheapo fans that came with my house do not hum and also the one in my old house did not hum and moved more air.
Even the better capacitor set that I switched out still hums to some degree, so I'm climing Hunter's using **** components, probably becuse their chinese suppliers are screwing them and they're not bothering to keep up the quality control.
