Question about Hunter Ceiling Fan Light Remote Control

Open Question

Remote interference from neighbors

Hunter ALL FAN Remote Control Model 27185-060.

Lights and fan speed often turn on and off sporadically. I'm sure it is caused by neighbor(s) RF use. This is a typical neighborhood with single family homes spaced 35-50 feet apart. I've changed dip switch combos with no success.

If I shorten the wire antenna on the receiver will it reduce the reception so that the fan will respond only to commands generated within my room?
If so, how much can I cut off the antenna?

SOURCE: LIGHT AND FAN ARE NOT WORKING. HAMPTON BAY LIGHT IS NOT WORKING

Could be a loose wire up inside the fan. I would be very careful in its use. Might I suggest getting an electrician in to resolve this issue. You do not want to battle a fire over a fan light issue.

SOURCE: We have a Hunter ceiling fan with a remote

Hi.

Usually there are jumpers inside remote circuit and on IR sensor, by changing them you will exclude the possibility of IR interference.

IR is a light signal, therefore it is highly unlikely that the problem is coming from your neioghbors, the problem looks more like a defective IR sensor on the fan, that is not a too unusual fault.

I suggest calling Hunter Ceiling at the number listed on the owners manual to see what they think about the problem.

Regards.

SOURCE: We got 4 HUNTER ceilin

Your Hunter ceiling fan is equipped with a small switch that changes the spin of the blades from clockwise to counter-clockwise. Regardless of the make or model of your ceiling fan, this switch is typically located on the center motor housing where the fan blades are attached. good-day!

Why does our remote receiver, model #85482-01, keep resetting itself?


That's a tough one; this could be coming from a malfunctioning transmitting or receiving unit, or outside interference.

Did the handheld remote get dropped just before this problem started? Or maybe have something spilled on it? One way of ruling out spurious emissions coming from the transmitter is, once the fan is operating, remove the batteries from the remote. If it still changes modes it would NOT be the remote. Proceed to the next step.

Have you had electrical storms or power outages around the time that the problem started? If so the receiver may have taken an electrical hit. Inspect it carefully for signs of arcing or smoke, fried wires. Also sniff it, if it has a funny (burnt) smell that's where the problem is. Of course the receiver could malfunction without and power surges and that would be harder to isolate.

Lastly, outside interference; This is very hard to determine without any test equipment. If someone living near you installed a garage door opener, Set-up an amateur radio station, or started using some piece of new electronics you might be interfered with you. I have seen electric lawnmowers do some strange things (interference). I was also was once on a call where the guy next door actually went out and bought a programmable remote control to mess with my clients TV, some kind of neighborhood squabble.

Hope this helps, best of luck to you.

Hunter 52, fan works but light no longer works with remote or chain pull


mcdevito75 here, Don"t the fan lights work off the wall switch, The chain pull should be for fan speed. Check make sure electricity is going to the fan.

I have a Hunter fan with remote. The fan or the light comes on by itself with no one around


See my post below: (Sorry, we're in the same boat)

Hunter ceiling fan with remote, have 5, 4 are seriously impaired! Lights dim to half strengh after variable time 10 seconds-30 minutes. And lights or fan turns on randomly (come home & fan on full blast), and one in which the lights won't dim (just blinks when try to dim)! Hunter "kinda" admits there is serious problem with remote but doesn't have a solution. Tells people to try changing to different code due to possible interference (pain in **** to change code on ceiling base!), was totally ineffective. Then replaced receiver in ceiling base (another total pain) in 3 fans with new ones sent Hunter, still totally useless. Hunter's suggestion, don't use the remote, just use the pull chain. If I had wanted a pull chain fan, I'd have bought a pull chain fan. TOTALLY USELESS! Moral of story: If you want a remote ceiling fan (my friend found out that all their remotes are made by the same company in Taiwan), don't buy Hunter!!!!! P.S. I found a "Kinda"- fix for the lights dimming to half strenth. After turning on the lights, wait 1 second, then dim lights slightly, they will then stay on the strength that you dim them to. - P.P.S. When I changed the receiver in the one where the lights won't dim, it "solved" that problem...Now it has the same problem as the others, lights or fan turn on randomly!

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. :)

We have a Hunter ceiling fan with a remote control, that appears to be possessed. It occasionally turns on or off by itself. What could cause this... interference from a neighbors remote?

Hunter 52" ceiling fan model 23457-380, the remote lights up


check the hard wiring from the factory. Where the light kit attaches to the fan check the wires in the factory cubes to make sure none are coming off. I had a similar problem that kicked my **** for a few minutes but I saw a loose wire after a bit of research. My fan also clicked but never turned on. Also pull the chains on the fan/light to make sure they are on. Hope something works for you.

Hunter ceiling fan. Lights and fans turn on and off by themselves.Both fans are on the same wall switch and are operated by separate remotes.


I just installed a 2nd hunter fan model 23811 that also seems to be controlled by grimlins. If the power is left on, the light and fan randomly turn on and off. And no, it is not due to fans being on the same frequency. It appears to be an issue with the control module. I'm contacting Hunter.

Hunter ceiling fan(French Quarter model) remote


The fan receiver is receiving signals of the proper frequency from sources other than your remote. This is very common. Could even be your neighbors remote...if you have neighbors...

If it's a real problem for you, you could try changing the frequency on your units (see owner's manual) -- that might help, or it might make it worse.
