Question about Hunter Dryers

Hunter remote, 85095-02, will turn the lights on and fan off whenever it feels like it. Very disturbing in the middle of the night, happens 2 to 3 times some nights. Is it the remote or receiver?

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.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Hunter fan/light with remote installed turns on by itself

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.

SOURCE: I think our house is haunted. Just installed

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!

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

you may have a defective remote reciver or even a bad remote.

Take the battery's out of the remote for a couple of days, if the fan turns on, the remote is good.
you can have the remote receiver replaced, they run around $60.00

Before I did anything else I would try changing the code on the problem fan. Change the dip switches in the fan and in the remote controller unit to a different code. It is not impossible that a neighbor has the same code in their unit or a device in the area is operating off the same code. Probably the cheapest thing to try next.

One night the fan turned off as we slept and last night, it's lights came on in the middle of the night.


The electronic control unit in the fan might be going/has gone bad. Depending on the amount of money a new one might be, it may be adviseable on getting a new fan.

Hunter ceiling fan(French Quarter model) remote


The fan receiver is receiving signals of the proper frequency from sources other than your remote. This is very common. Could even be your neighbors remote...if you have neighbors...

If it's a real problem for you, you could try changing the frequency on your units (see owner's manual) -- that might help, or it might make it worse.

Hunter ceiling fan w/ remote won't work


You need to change the receiver inside the fan. It is located in the top canopy of the fan. you don't have to buy a new remote just the receiver to save money and match the dip switches to the remote.
