SOURCE: magic fan
Sounds like a defective infrared sensor in the fan. I assume you have tried removing the batteries in the remote to rule out the remote. I don't think you have a wiring issue....your light works and the fan works. Typical fan wiring involves the fan & lights. The wiring for the infrared should already be wired from the factory. Its in the infrared detection circuit.

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: Fan light is turning itself on
Oh i remember my first ceiling fan and the midnight wake ups. lol. Easy easy fix. You are getting radio interference from some other source. Take the fan back down and in the remote as well as the reciever you can change the codes (refer to your owners manual) Some have switches you can move others have plastic clips you can add or remove. In any case it doesn't matter which code you change it to as any other code should solve your problem. Good luck, hope you sleep better afterwards.

Testimonial: "Thank you - appreciate the very quick response. "
See my post below: (Sorry, we're in the same boat!)
Hunter ceiling fan with remote, have 5, 4 are seriously impaired! Lights dim to half strengh after variable time 10 seconds-30 minutes. And lights or fan turns on randomly (come home & fan on full blast), and one in which the lights won't dim (just blinks when try to dim)! Hunter "kinda" admits there is serious problem with remote but doesn't have a solution. Tells people to try changing to different code/channel on the remote due to possible interference (pain in **** to change code on ceiling base!), was totally ineffective. Then replaced receiver in ceiling base (another total pain) in 3 fans with new ones sent Hunter, still totally useless. Hunter's suggestion, don't use the remote, just use the pull chain. If I had wanted a pull chain fan, I'd have bought a pull chain fan. TOTALLY USELESS! Moral of story: If you want a remote ceiling fan (my friend found out that all their remotes are made by the same company in Taiwan), don't buy Hunter!!!!!
- P.S. I found a "Kinda"- fix for the lights dimming to half strenth. After turning on the lights, wait 1 second, then dim lights slightly, they will then stay on the strength that you dim them to. - P.P.S. When I changed the receiver in the one where the lights won't dim, it "solved" that problem...Now it has the same problem as the others, lights or fan turn on randomly!
