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

It is quite likely that the unit has an internal surge supressor/fuse that blew when the power went out. Tou will need to open the housing to the fan motor and inspect the fuse. Once you get the fan working, the remote will work just fine.
If the problem is the remote itself, then it is possible, though highly unlikely that the remote code has been wiped out that connects the remote with the receiver on the main unit. If so, hopefully there are reset/reprogramming instructions in the manual.

SOURCE: ceiling fan remote does not operate fan. batteries

U say u have charged the battery, but that doesn't mean the battery is any good, use a volt meter and check the battery voltage.

Lights won't work on Harbor Breeze ceiling fan


Ceiling fans operated with remote controls, pull chains, and/or wall switches tend to get confused and just fail. You can try disconnecting power at the source and, while pausing briefly, remove batteries from the remote and push all buttons to eliminate the "stuck button" cause. Then, reconnect power and try various combinations of controls until something works or you give up in frustration.

The light on the remote is a battery light. First mistake was buying a store brand fan which are mostly low-end parts. Try adding a different remote w/receiver.

Hunter ceiling fan fan is working but lights are not


Make sure light wire is connected at the ceiling & at the bottom. Otherwise it's probably the receiver. 1-888-830-1326 ( Hunter parts )

Is there a way to take remote controll off of a fan mine stoped working after kids pulled fan or light pull


My ceiling fan loses remote control every time there is a power outage. The first thing to do is turn off power to the fan at the circuit breaker. Take the battery out of the remote and push all the buttons to eliminate a stuck button as a possible cause. Reinstall the battery. Turn on power to the fan. Check operation. You may have to pull a chain to "reeducate" the remote but you should be back up and running soon.

Fan works fine, lights don't. Could it be the remote?


Had this happen to me and it was a hunter fan. Similar problem. Fan worked,lights went out. Took light bulbs out, lowered the light fixture. Tested power coming from the ceiling to the quick connect pins for lights. The power was good. So the Problem's in the light kit. Turns out the government requires all new fans to have certain wattage to lights, set at 190. So 3 60w bulbs or 4 40w. Inside the light kit is a limitor hooked to the black power wire coming from the quick connect,It is smaller wire and mine was pink into limitor and white coming out. Not very big. This went bad so i called Hunter, sending new light kit, but I just wired straight black to black wire bypassed that limitor and lights work fine

No power to hunter ceiling fan or light.


It sounds like either the top part of your remote is bad, or you have a bad connection to it. Have someone that is familiar with electricity (that may be you?) check to see if there is power to the ceiling box, and fan's remote that is ususally in the ceiling box, or just under it in the cover. If you have power there, your remote is failing.

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.
