if you have the remote controll for both the fan and light you can have the controll on both the fan and light...
other wise it can't

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.

on some you hold down a button on the remote control while you turn power on .. you keep the button pressed for maybe 20 seconds .. i dont remember what button but probably fan on or light on .. the receiver acquires the code from the remote .. if you still have trouble i can probably find the specific instructions ..

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.

Before you try all of that try the on/off switch, I tried holding down the light switch on the remote and turning the on/off back and forth several times and then the light came on... it is very tricky, but I knew my battery was good, and the fan worked before the power went out and the dip switches did not need reset or changed. I tried many different combinations so I am not sure what tripped it up, but try that before changing anything or pulling the fan cover off. Best of Luck
