Question about Oasis Hunter 54' Ceiling Fan

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

    The circuit board has areas where it has burned. Fan works, but not with the remote.

  • Con Shuck May 20, 2013

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.

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.

Light remote control stopped working

most of my fan controls have done this to me. you know the reciever is working cuz the fan works fine. you need to dis assemble the remote completely and clean the contacts for the light button. mine are two small black dots that seem to keep getting slimey and wont work till i clean them, then all works like brand new again.

good luck.

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."

Fan does not work, light does


Your remote uses a slightly different band of IR for one and the other functions; lamp or on/off. This IR lamp or the circuit that controls the IR lamp has failed. You will need a new remote.

Hunter is good about making replacement parts available but as you said this is five years old. You may have to look for an after market seller on Ebay and chances are very good you can find a new one there.
