Hunter Fan has stopped accepting remote control signals

Fan has stopped accepting remote control signals (remote is good), where is the receiver located in fan? Are there standard replacement parts for the receiver.

I changed dip switch settings on remote and it worked on another Hunter fan in the house, so I am confident the remote is still good.

    I have a fan that dosen't work but the light works. If I change the dip switches nothing works!! Hunter did warranty the receiver once but problem reappeared after 3-4 months.

  • Lynnie59 Nov 03, 2008

    Yep! We're having the SAME problem, remote for our 52" is working, fan does not work, sometimes it just goes on by itself after we have pushed remote button, then goes off on it's own too! It's only 2 yrs old too. We would've liked to have another option to turn it on & off like the pullchains didn't think this would become an issue! and so SOON. Called Hunter, they said it's the receiver and cost is $50 plus shipping to replace it! ridiculous! We bought this brand thinking it was a better value, now, not so sure. you can buy a whole new fan for a little more than receiver cost after all! they need a better warranty too.!!! our model# is 23457, Hunter also told us this model has been discontinued too,,, only after 2 years??!! hmmm

I'll guess and say that the fan quit working properly shortly after either a power surge in your house of after a light burnt out after turning them on. It has happened several times to the two Hunter fans we have here, both with the wireless remote control. After having both replaced under warranty, and then paying for a replacement, I finally took the receiver apart and found the root cause. There is a power regulator (looks like a power transistor) that uses the aluminum portion on the housing as a heat sink. The part is easy to replace for those of you who are handy with a soldering pencil. For those of you who are not, I'm sure you know of someone who is. Now for the good and bad news. The good news? The replacement part is about a dollar from an electronics supply house called Mouser. I tried Radio Shack, but they have really cut back on electronic components. The bad news? I can't remember the part number. I have a spare one, but I can't find it right now. I will look for it and if need be, I'll open up the receiver and get the number off of it and post back to this thread. After replacing the part in both a little over six months ago, we have had no problems with the receivers. Voltage spikes no longer take out the regulator.

    thankyou Dable, I have the exact problem with my Hunter ceiling fan remote reciever. If you could give a little more description as to what power regulator you used it may be helpful. I have removed the reciever portion, but cannot tell which componet is the powe regulator. Thanks

    Mouser part #: 511-BTA08-400C (8.0 Amp 400 Volt STMicro Triacs)


The receiver is at the bottom of your fan (just above any light kits), inside a round case about 4 inches tall. You will have to take 3-4 screws out and inside you will see the receiver. It should have an electrical connector going to it with dip switch as well. It will pull right out of the case.

By the way, I am having the same problem and am trying to get ahold of Hunter for a new receiver.

I'm new with this problem as I just got this fan from my dad.. Thanks dad... but after learning a bit about hunter and where it was made from, I knew there was a problem, just as any other cheap toy from china.
I ended up changing both Voltage Regulators (replaced with NTE184 {no heat sink} and NTE977 [half circle candy]) and both caps on the main board (100uF 10v and 220uf 35v {forget what I replaced it with, and i'm not taking that thing apart again}) ..................................30 mins in and joy. all for 12 bucks CAD locally. Now to find a light bulb.
Don't know which model I have but its 52 inchs

    P.S. Thanks Dable_21 for pointing the way.

  • jjweird May 28, 2011

    Found the receipt which was handy instead of taking it down and opening the module up.
    I reads like this..
    NTE184 - Transistor $4.18 (Mid)~~~
    NTE911 - IC...78L05 $3.13 (Small)~~~
    50R220 - 50V-220MF Radial Capacitor $2.25 (Mid)~~~
    16R100 - 16V-100MF Electrolytic Capacitor $1.85 (Small)~~~

    I'll Update Since I'm Here...
    After a day of use, I'm happy to report it's still functioning properly and I'm planing to keep a regular size light bulb in there, using a 4Litre Ice Cream bucket as a glass bowl which slides and holds in place on three out of four sides.. Thanks dad for the fan, again and Dable_212 for pointing.

  • jjweird Jun 15, 2014

    Update: The problem still comes and goes but not like before. The fans remote mostly works fine if I don't use the light portion of the remote. Instead I hooked the light to a wall switch instead as if heat has something to do with it. Now I barely use the fan as I fined it doesn't help with my situation (doesn't move the air where I want it to go) but when I want to use it, it works.

Remote control not working

Dear Sir/madam,

Check these steps........

1. Adjusting the dip switches:
Each fan/remote combination is set to work on a specific frequency, much like tuning in a specifc radio station. Some fans allow you to set this frequency by means of a set of small switches called "dip switches". There is one set located inside the remote, and the other set would be position on the fan, with the remote receiver electronics. This would be either on top of the motor, or inside the switch housing or ceiling canopy. These switches "tune" the remote and fan (received) to the same "station" and therefore must be set to the same setting. If a fan is not responding to the remote you can check to make sure that the switches are set to the same setting in both locations, and/or try a different setting. They are also useful if you have two remote fans, you will want to be sure each fan is set different so the remotes do not interfere. Lastly, if some other wireless device is interfering with the fan (causing it to turn on and off seemingly at random) such as a garage door opener or cordless phone, you can try a different setting on the dip switches.
2. Universal remotes:
If your fan remote is lost or broken, many suppliers, including this web site, offer a universal remote designed to work with the majority of different remote operated ceiling fans. Many are also universal for operating televions etc so you can control all your leisure and comfort devices from one unit.
3. Replacement parts:
Unfortunately, outside of Universal remotes, general replacement parts are not available for remote control systems. Your best bet is to contact the manufacturer.
3a. Repair:
Also unforunately, most problems with remote controls cannot be repaired outside of what is suggested above. If you have problems, contact the manufacturer, perhaps the fan is under warranty, or parts are available. Otherwise chances are the fan will stay broken.
4. Converting to 3 speed:
One common question: My fan's remote is broken, can I just convert it to a 3 speed pullchain like other fans? Again unfortunately, if you have to ask the question, then chances are the answer is no. It can be done but there are no universal directions, it varies drastically from fan motor to fan motor, and requires a fair amount of technical and electronic skill. A few exceptions: If the fan has a "remote bypass" switch you can select it and then use a wall control (or pullchain if there is one attached to the fan). Or . . .
5. Add-on remote kits
Some fan remote systems are not built into the fan, they were an option added by the installer at an additional cost. Usually they consist of a remote receiver wired to the fan inside the ceiling canopy, and the fan will still have a pullchain that is not used. If this is the case then the receiver can be removed and replaced with another remote/receiver kit, or the fan can be operated as standard with the 3 speed pullchain.

good luck

Hampton bay fan model 761 567 running faster on

Your issue is most likely a faulty speed control. The part is integral to the remote receiver in the fan housing. You can purchase spare parts for this fan through Home Depot (Hampton Bay) Service at 800-654-0688.

The receiver is located in the upper portion of the housing for the fan motor. Look for a semi-circular black control box (usually manufactured by Rhine)

Remote control will not turn on/off fan or light. Has good battery. Where is the transmitter located on the ceiling fan?

The transmitter is the remote. The receiver is located inside the fan mounting bracket next to the ceiling. If you replace it make sure to set the dip settings on the new receiver exactly as they are on the old one. Wire the new receiver exactly as the old one is wired if it was working before.

Hunter ceiling fan remote problem

You will most likely need to replace the receiver with a new one from hunter. The receiver is actually a complete controller and contains the receiver, relays (which you hear clicking) and starting condensors(large capacitors which hold a charge that is "dumped" over the windings to get the motor to start from a dead stop). These appear to be pretty tightly assembled unless you have a desire to start replacing parts "off the board."

Ceiling fan remote not working

It is certainly possible that the remote went bad -- after all, it is an electronic device, and is was "made in China". With that said, there are other possibilities:

* The receiver, which is what receives the signals sent by the remote control, could have died. In most remote-controlled fans, the receiver is located in the ceiling canopy (the decorative part up by the ceiling, which hides the wires). In other fans, it's located in the switch housing (the part of the fan to which the light kit attaches). Solution: try everything else on this list; if nothing works, replace the receiver. Universal replacements for most models are available at Home Depot and Lowes.

* A wire on that receiver could have come loose. Solution: check all wires for secureness.

* A wire in your wall or ceiling -- the wire which provides power to the fan -- could have come loose or been chewed through by a rodent. Solution: use a circuit tester to check whether there's power at the connections at the top of the fan, in the ceiling, where the fan connects to the building's wiring.

* A circuit breaker could have tripped or a fuse could have blown. Solution: check your circuit breaker or fuse panel.

* The DIP switches inside the remote control -- which set the frequency on which the control transmits -- could have been knocked out of position accidentally or by a child playing with it. Solution: check the code on the DIP switches on the receiver in the fan -- then, make sure the remote control has its DIP switches set the exact same way.

If none of the above work, then yes -- the problem is with the receiver or the transmitter (remote). The two are typically sold as a pair, and universal replacements are available at Home Depot and Lowe's.

Hope that helps! Feel free to ask for clarification if you need it!

Remote to fan won't work

This is a known problem with the remote receiver in these fan units. There is a TRIAC that controls the dimmer function (part BTA08-600C) and is attached to the metal bracket sticking out of the yellow plastic receiver housing. When this fails, the light is on all the time. You can buy the replacement part from Newark electric ( for 83 cents. If you aren't good with a pencil soldering iron, get someone to replace it for you. Takes about 30 minutes.
