Hi, you do have juice at that plug,right?Also must chk. the wire for breaks, must have hand held tester! We need to know if motor works before you try playing with remotes. That's last on the list! Don't you have smart friends. If not its time to find one, or two! It seems you don't know yourself and if you want to save money you must test it before we get to remotes and batteries. That's all I can do from here, but I hope you understand! Frankie

Where are the numbers on the motor housing hunter Douglas fan to operate remote

Hi there,
I'm not totally sure what you're asking? Do you need the numbers on the fan because of a bad motor, and need information for it? Or, are you looking for information to operate the remote - which is usually found in the owner's manual - which I'm sure you know already. Or, is your remote not working - and you think there's information on the motor to help assist you? Or, are you not sure why your remote isn't working - and think it's the motor? Well, the remote has a transmitter up inside the canopy - next to the ceiling, where the fan is attached too. This is usually the reason why the remote doesn't work - unless you need new batteries. It's always good to put brand new batteries in a remote, because a lot of times - people take from a drawer, cabinet, another appliance, remote, etc...and this doesn't always solve the issue. Without going into the phenomenom of electrical theory, etc. - I'd just try new batteries, if you haven't done so already. Otherwise, you'll need a new transmitter. Now, the way to see if this is the problem - is to turn off the switch (or better yet, the electricity) that operates the fan - and remove the transmitter. Then, reattach the wires directly. You should have one Hot wire (usually colored, but not always the case) - and one Neutral wire (usually the white wire, but not always the case. After you connected the Hot wire to the colored wire of the fixture, and the neutral wire to the white wire of the fixture. Go back and turn your power source back on again. This should allow you to work the fan with the wall switch. If it comes on, then you know you need a new transmitter. Otherwise, there could be an electrical issue up in the ceiling, or somewhere. However, I don't believe you'll have to go that far. Try the new batteries first, then bypassing the transmitter next - and I believe you should have your answer by then. Good Luck, and I hope this will help you...Jim

We have just bought a home that 3 of the living room/dining room fans are on 1 remote and that remote has quit. We've put in a new battery but it still doesn't work. Can they just go bad ??? Where...

Yes, they can. Another possibility, however, is the jumper settings could have been accidently changed when the battery was changed. Inside the remote is usally four little switches in a row, each can be on or off (zero or one). These need to be set to the same values as the receivers in the fans.

Ceiling fan is all wired up and on ceiling but light doesn't come on or fan doesn't spin. I have checked connections and tested for power. Is there a switch or anything on receiver that needs to be...

Jerry, from what you said, I assume you have a remote controlled ceiling fan. If that's the case, check the batteries in the hand held and the receiver, to make sure they are charged. Also, make sure they are installed properly. The Owner's Manual should have a reference to setting or resetting the codes for the remote control (Hand Held & the Receiver). Check those to make sure they are matching. And don't forget, the wall switch must remain ON for the fan to work, even with the remote control. The remote simply overrides the wall switch, when in operation. You may have to use the pull chain to start the fan motor the first time, then the remote can take over from there.

Good luck. I hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Our remote to the fan is not working

Try changing the batteries int he remote.

If anyone opened the battery box for the remote recently, the "DIP" switches may have been moved. These switches make the communication between fan and remote match - (in case you have several fans in the house, you only want one remote controlling one fan). You will have to pull the besel off of the fan (where the pole comes to the ceiling). You should be able to see a set of 4, 6 or 8 little slider switches on a small electric board. Make sure the switches are set the same on both the fan and remote. If they are set differently, they will not communicate.

If that doesn't work, there are many options of what can be wrong (bad remote, bad radio receiver on the fan, interference from other radios, ...).

Good luck,

Hunter ceiling fan 52 ",

Hey dale. Sounds like either the integrated remote pack inside the fan housing might be bad, or the reversal switch part. If it has a switch on the fan housing to change it from forward and reverse, you could try going to a hardware store and replacing that switch. If that doesn't work, then it is probably a bad remote receiver pack iside the fan, it will be a bigger, probably black little box. If this is the case, your better off getting a new fan, as it will cost about the same. If your fan doesn't have a little switch to change blade direction, 9 out of 10 times it is the receiver pack. If your fan does have a switch for fan direction, there is a good chance it is a bad switch. It could also be both. After 10 years with the fan, you might seriously want to consider purchasing a new fan.

The remote controls the fan speed but wont dim or control the light. the unit wont work if the light switch is off so I cant use the fan at all unless the light is turned on

mcdevito75 here, Generally the Ceiling fan motor is hooked up by-passing the wall switch but still to the hot laed going to the wall switch whlie the lights are hooked up to the hot lead after the wall switch, So without the remote, Manually operate your fan and lights. First with the wall switch off the fan should work and the lights no work. Now turn the fan off with the pull chain on the fan shroud close to the ceiling. Now turn wall switch on and lights should work with wall switch and the fan should also work. if so, re-program the remote or change the batteries or even re--place the remote.

I had a similar issue with my fans. The fix I came up with was my remote was faulty. An easy fix because I had 2 fans with the same remote.

Remote Control

Change the remote control batteries. Because of the motor construction, it needs to turn on in the highest speed setting. This is why it defaults to the high speed mode. Put new batteries in the remote and that ought to fix it.
