Do not use the factory default position in either fan. Double check the dip switches, and make sure they are the same for each individual receiver and remote.Different codes for each. Dip switches are the oppsite direction in the remote for some reason?

I installed a Hunter On"Off fan and light control model 27157 on a Hunter Augusta fan model 21338. I tested the remote control and the fan and light on, however, after a period of time, the fan turns on...

Most likely this is caused by radio interference from some other device nearby. Try changing the "channel" by changing the dip switches on both devices and make sure they match. :)

I tried to change the remote codes on the fan and remote so it would stop turning on and off the fan in the other room but I can't get it to work.

When I changed the dip switches on the Hunter receiver, I noticed that the remote would not work when set to the new code. When I set it back to the previous code, it would work, leading me to determine that the receiver has some basic memory. The solution was to simply cut the power to the fan at the circuit breaker box and the new dip switch settings now work.

This was not described anywhere in the manual of the Hunter fan I purchased, so a slight oversight by the manufacturer.

DIP Switches don't seem to matter

You need to completely power off (wall switch or breaker) when changing the dip switches. Not just power off from remote because it will keep previous setting. I learned it the hard way....

Light goes on by itself

My solution for intermitent light on/fan off-on: It is not outside interference. It is defective receivers. I took back my second 27185 back to Menards with the exact same problem as the first. I went to Home Depot, bought a Hampton Bay model 191-691 remote unit for $8.00 less with same features and when you turn the lights off then back on, the receiver remembers the brightness level you turned off at. Been installed for a week now with no problems. Hunter would have acted up the first day.

Dip switch setting for my fan

It does not matter what the dip setting is as long as they are the same on the remote and the receiver. If you do not know the setting you will have to remove the fan mounting cover and pull the receiver out. Open the receiver and see what the dip setting is. Then set the remote to the same setting.

I don't know the dip switch setting for my fan

Most controls only have 4 dip switches. That makes 16 possible settings. If you try each setting it will take you less than 5 min.

No dip switch in Hunter 27157 remote control.

Those aren't transistors in the transmitter they are jumpers. Match the jumper settings with your dip switch settings in the receiver. You can move the jumpers in the transmitter using a small needle nose pliers. An open jumper in the transmitter equals an OFF setting on the dip switch in the receiver.

Good luck!

Fan and light control model 27157

yeah, if you take off the battery cover on your fan remote there should be something called a "dip switch". it wiil be numbered 1,2,3,4, just flip these switches up or down to match the receiver that will be located in the fan houseing or in the fan canopy.
