Question about Hunter Dryers

Open Question

Six Hunter fan/lights failed together - no fans or lights working. I disconnected the receiver modules and by-passed them with the plugs and sockets so that fans now work full speed. What happened?

SOURCE: Hunter 3 speed ceiling fan now turns slowly

Probably a bad capacitor. What model is it? If it completely wireless (in other words: no pull chains for light or fan) the capacitor is located on the receiver for the fan (in the canopy or the lower switch housing). Unless you are handy with a soldering iron, it is easier to purchase a replacement receiver.

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 ceiling fan remote 85095-01 stopped working

it also could be one of the the jumpers fell out of the remote
they are located just above the battery. you will need to match the placement of the jumpers with the receiver mounted in the fan.

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.

THE LIGHTS ON MY HUNTER CEILING FAN WILL NOT LIGHT UP BUT THE FAN PORTION WORKS WELL


If your Hunter fan uses a remote control, the light portion of the remote receiver probably has failed. It is a common problem with remote-controlled ceiling fans in general.

The black box that you're referring to is the receiver module. This is required for it to function with the remote control.

Cp9430r


Fixed Hunter ceiling fan with remote light pin out wiring 9 wire plug search words
Hunter Ceiling Fan with remote, fails to turn on light, fails to turn on fan..remote receiver is Cp9430r
1) Test your remote, Hunter uses Radio Frequency remote, point RF remote one inch from antenna of working AM radio, press each button on remote, each button will produce static sound from AM radio, if no sound..check battery wiring or solder connection on loop antenna of remote. If no sound on one or more buttons, disassemble and wash key pad with dish soap, rinse and fan dry, retest. If still one button no work apply graphite paint to button to rebuild conductivity of button.
2) Cp9430r receiver is below fan and above light. Remove light assembly, check receiver dip switches, mine was #5 On 1~4 Off, check remote control dip switches in 9v battery compartment also set #5 On 1~4 Off, new 9v battery still no Fan reversal "click" sound heard coming from the large Blue fan reversal relay located inside the Cp9430 receiver. All other buttons control transistors and will make no sound even if they are working.
3) Disassemble / unplug 9 wire plug from Cp9430r receiver, place receiver on wooden table, 9 wire plug has two empty pin squares, one empty in the center, the other empty we will call #1 ..counting clockwise #2,#3...#4,#5..#6,#7and finally top center next to empty #1 is #8. Now #8 is 110v hot/black ...& #4 neutral/white.
4) Shock Danger..carefully apply ac volts to pins #8,#4 use tape if needed, locate quad operational amplifier i call it radio receiver chip HA17324 on board, google HA17324 Datasheet, locate leg #14 it is across from leg #1. Locate small yellow ceramic capacitor very near leg #14, use capacitor's neg as neg for voltmeter, test volts at #1,#7,#8 and #14. My #1 was 3.1v, #7 3.2v, #8 3.25v and #14 .01v ...why #14 so low? I monitored each leg while pressing remote control buttons...no changes. **Desperate, I sparked (1/2 second or less) #14 with 3.14v from positive leg of yellow capacitor** and retested all legs, no change except now #14 rests at .02v and jumps to 2.5v~2.8v when any button on the remote is pressed then rests at .02v. Now Lights work, Fan speeds work, Reverse rotation Works :-)
Pin Out on 9 wire plug, #1 Empty pin, #2 Alternates w up/down fan rotation, #3 goes to 5uf fan capacitor other side of cap goes to white/neutral AC Line, #4 AC Line neutral, #5 goes to Triac? speeds? , #6 Alternates up/down fan rotation goes to up/dn blue relay, #7 goes to up/dn blue relay looks to be AC hot looking for fan probably paired with #3 changing sides at up/dn blue relay, #8 AC Line hot in. Why did **sparking** work, smarter people might know, i think a small spark got stuck in the chip and sparking helped the chip release it out. No electrical education, novice. Jer. 51 8,9 and 11

Hunter ceiling fan. Lights and fans turn on and off by themselves.Both fans are on the same wall switch and are operated by separate remotes.


I just installed a 2nd hunter fan model 23811 that also seems to be controlled by grimlins. If the power is left on, the light and fan randomly turn on and off. And no, it is not due to fans being on the same frequency. It appears to be an issue with the control module. I'm contacting Hunter.

Hunter Fan # 20723 The Westminster - lights delayed when turn on


Here is the answer I received from Hunter Technical Support.

"The light fixtures are manufactured with a limiter that prevents a higher than recommended wattage bulb from working. The limiter causes the slight delay even when the correct bulbs are is in use."

Pretty annoying if you ask me.
