Sounds like the remote receiver units (located where the mains connect to the fans) took a surge and have failed.

The replacement remote will work fine. All you have to watch out for is that the remote receiver and the remote transmitter are a matched set.

SOURCE: Check/add oil to a hunter ceiling fan

If you are asking for instructions on checking and possibly adding oil to a Hunter Original fan. Here are instructions:

Check oil level immediately after filling the reservoir. To check oil, bend an ordinary pipe cleaner into a 1/2" long hook and dip it into the oil reservoir.

If oil touches the end of the pipe cleaner, the fan has ample oil. If it does not touch, add SAE 10 non-detergent oil slowly until it touches the pipe cleaner.

-Hunter Original fans rarely/ never need oil unless they were relocated or tipped. ...Or if the fan was improperly installed.

-Hunter sells an oil refill / oil level check kit with good instructions. They also sell a relocation kit that includes the same kit plus all mounting hardware needed.

Good Luck!

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.

SOURCE: Need a replacement capacitor

Voltage rating doesn't matter. 250v or 330v will work.

If this is really a 2 speed original, with the 2.5Amp motor... it will NOT have a capacitor as the motor is a shaded pole unit. The three speed electrically reversible fans, have a capacitor, which can either be in the switch housing/ oil reservoir, or the top of the motor housing, depending on year of manufacture.

You need to put some Hunter oil then push the blades around by hand to get the bearings lubed. Then check oil level and add more oil if necessary.

A customer of mine has a very nice Hunter original ceiling fan that she never oiled and now the fan just hums and wont spin. Is it possible to repair after no oil damage is done?


Put some oil in and turn blades by hand to lubricate the bearings. If the motor is frozen, then you would have to take it to a service center or send back to Hunter for repair.

Older hunter original, needs lubrication. Where do I put the lubrication in? What kind of lubrication/oil? Used to buy fan oil, but no longer available, Fan has clicking noise and lubrication oil...


Howdy,

This is the owner's manual to your fan

http://www.hunterfanhq.com/tools/sales/hunter/preseason/images/owners/41121.pdf

As for oil, you can use one of two oils. Depending on how old your fan is, I suggest changing the oil by removing the fan, turning the motor completely over and letting it drain into the "dish" on the part that spins, clean the oil out of there, then re-hang the fan and oil with 1 oz of either Hunter Fan Oil (which is available from hunter, or on ebay, just search for Hunter Original Fan) or Zoom Spout Oiler, both are the same oil.

Thanks

Hunter 23852,L-black to red-hurricane speed,black to yellow-almost hurricane,black to gray-very slow,hardy moves air,installed westinghouse 6A125vac switch,same speeds,how can i get a comfortable medium...


Howdy,

Sounds like a good ol' American made Hunter Original to me. BEST and most powerful residential ceiling fan (high quality) ever made. The RPM spec is 200-160-50 for the respective speeds, moving 10,500 CFM on high speed. Most ceiling fans barely crack 5,000 CFM. they were built for Brute Force Air Movement and they really don't do well for small spaces. The best solution I have for you is if you have a Wall switch for this fan, to install a Hunter Original Wall control or remote control. http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p5197.m570.l1313&_nkw=hunter+original+control&_sacat=See-All-Categories

Both controls will lower the Medium speed to about 100-110 rpm, which should be much more comfortable for you.

Because the Hunter Original (I know your fan is an American made unit by your wire colors) draws more current than other fans, the Original controls are the only controls that are designed to work with your fan. Other controls do not have the current capacity for the Original motor.

Also, are you aware your fan uses oil?

I purchased the hunter outdoor fan about 3 years ago. All three of them are leaking oil. What is the problem?


Might be overfilled on oil. Oil should be only 1/2 " from the top of the reservoir. also check that the reservoir tank is on tight. Note (Left land treads).
