SOURCE: Remote controlled ceiling fans stopped working

My guess is that a neighbor close by, got a similar fan. This is common I understand. Other than that.....I can not think of a single thing! I say that even after 30+ years of working with electrical, and electronics.

SOURCE: Hunter fan wiring

sounds like one of your connections is loose. Im not sure if i completely understand your description of how you re-hoked up your fan. Please tell me how many wires your fan has and colors and how many wires you have on the sensor remote. (lots of times if you draw a wiring diagram on paper you can figure it out) Basically you should have power coming from ceiling to remote sensor. Then the remote sensor should throw the power to either the fan or the light, so there should be two seperate leads coming out of the remote sensor to control either the fan or the light independantly.

SOURCE: my ceiling light and stopped working

Hi there,  First of all, can you tell if there's power going to the light? Lets first make sure that it's not a power problem. You can check your circuit breaker in your main electrical panel. Now, when checking this - leave your light switch in the ON position. So when you're checking the circuit breakers, you can see from afar if the light/fan comes on. Now, you can also have a light switch problem too. Turn the switch on and off; and wiggle the toggle (lever) on the switch to make sure its tight. Next, get up on a ladder and make sure that your switches on the light itself are on the ON position. It most likely is, but you're just ruling things out. So, if you think there's power getting to the light - then turn the wall switch OFF. You can also turn off the circuit breaker as added protection. You would then need to take off the bottom of the light/fan to get to the wiring connections. If you have a little inductance tester, which when you put it up against the wires - a light, a beep, or both come on to let you know there's power. These little testers are invaluable. There very inexpensive, and they can save you plenty of headaches. If you can buy or borrow one, you would open the bottom of the light/fan - and make sure all your connections are tight and secure. I come across a lot of shabby splices were the wires aren't all the way in (secure) when its installed, and eventually with the vibration of the fan motor - the wires will work themselves loose. After checking the connections, clear yourself from the light/fan and turn the wall switch ON. Then go back up the ladder and wave your tester up against the wires to see if you have any power at the light. If you do, then you most likely have a switching problem at the light/fan.  To confirm this, you would turn OFF the wall switch again. Go back up the ladder and wave your tester to double check that there's NO power. Your next step would be to bypass the switch on the light/fan. You can do this by removing the switch and splicing (joining) the two wires together...or, you can locate each (only two) wire coming from the switch - and then splice (join) these two wires together. Now that you've bypassed this light/fan switch - get down from the ladder and turn ON the wall switch. If this is the problem, then the light/fan should work ALL together when your wall switch is in the ON position. If it works, then you'll have take that switch with you to your local Home Depot, Lowes, or hardware store to get this part. Its easier to take the switch with you and show the clerk at the store the part you need. They are common parts, so you should have no problem. Lets stop here for now. I believe you should find the problem by now. If not, please contact me again - and let me know what you have done, and what everything you did resulted in. I don't believe you'll go this far, but if so - then we'll proceed from there. Good Luck, and remember to turn the power OFF when you're working on the light/fan - and make sure your connections are secure when rewiring your connections back up. And then put everything back in order of how you took them off. I hope this works for you! Jim

I've also had this problem. Solved it with the reset button on the back of the remote. It's under the battery cover, next to the dip switches.

Turn on the remote, with heat. Then, at the wall switch or circuit box turn off power. Wait a few minutes. Restore power and within 30 seconds with remote in range of fan hit the reset button. You should see a countdown from 5-0 on the remote screen.

I did this and the heat started working again.

We have 2 Hunter ceiling fans with remotes. We can get the one in the bedroom to work great but the one in the living room now will not turn on the fan or light. Also when we are trying to get the living...

The remote might have wrong orders. Get the battery out and insert it back and see if the problem solved.
Do you set the dip switchs correctly on the fan and on the remote? Numbers set must be matched. Otherwise, the fan won't work either.

Hampton Bay Ceiling fan wobbling

The fan came with one or more clips and some small weights that easily stick to the blade. Now with the clip you put it in one of the blades, starting from the far end and coming inwards, little by little. Try putting the clip in the middle of the fan and turn on the fan and see if it continues wobbling, if it continues wobbling try moving it to left and right and every time turn on the fan and see what happens. When you find the correct spot, there you glue the small weight.

Fan is Erratic

Ceiling fans with wireless remote controls have an electronic receiver installed in the fan, which controls the light, dimming, and fan speed. Sometimes the receiver goes bad and needs to be replaced. If you have had any power outages or power surges, they may have fried the receiver. I've noticed that my ceiling fan light turns on when the power is restored after a power outage. Now, whenever my power goes out, I shut off the light switch that powers my ceiling fan so It doesn't experience a surge to to the controller when the power comes back on. I've purchased new receivers on eBay and Amazon to replace my blown remotes and receivers.

Ceiling fan

Try grasping the fan motor and turning it a little each way. There is a notch in the support bracket and maybe it was knocked hard enough to move out of the notch.
