    Am having same problem. Part number on remote matches and i have a Hunter Sontera. Lights work only from chain but fan doesnt. Remote lights up but does not turn on or off fan or lights. This started a year or two ago off and on and would fix itself. A couple times i touched the remote on the fan and it started working again. But now it has been off for a while and i am hoping to get this fixed.

    same problem with hunter fan remote. did anyone ever find a solution?

  • Anonymous Dec 04, 2008

    My problem is very similar. The light always works with the remote, but the fan is very sporatic. Some days it works other it doesn't. I haven't tried this yet but I'm thinking about turning the breaker off to the room and leaving it off for a bit. Maybe that will reset some sort of circuit on the fan. If that doesn't work I'm heading to lowes to replace the damn thing.

Don't have a solution to this problem, but I'm having a similar problem. The remote works for the fan but the other day we had a light bulb burn out and ever since then the switch on the remote for the light will not work, but the fan works just fine. If anyone has a solution please post it or email me at dustinbrown_18@hotmail.com Thanks

Fan light turns on but doesn't turn off with remote also fan doesn't go on with remote


Make shure your batteries are good in the remote. Also some remotes have little dip switchers inside the battery cover that are either on or off. They must be in the same position as the dip switches on the receiver in the top canopy of the ceiling fan or the remote & receiver won't talk to each other. Apart from that you will probably need to replace the remote control & receiver unit.

Hunter ceiling fan remote will not turn off light it just dims the light


Try this. Remove power from the fan. Remove batteries from the remote. Press butttons on remote (might be stuck). Apply power to the fan. Install batteries in the remote and try all functions. If this doesn't work, the remote may be defective or the remote receiver may be defective. I can tell you from my own experience I have a ceiling fan that loses its mind whenever there is a power outage. Has to be reeducated from scratch

Hey dale. Sounds like either the integrated remote pack inside the fan housing might be bad, or the reversal switch part. If it has a switch on the fan housing to change it from forward and reverse, you could try going to a hardware store and replacing that switch. If that doesn't work, then it is probably a bad remote receiver pack iside the fan, it will be a bigger, probably black little box. If this is the case, your better off getting a new fan, as it will cost about the same. If your fan doesn't have a little switch to change blade direction, 9 out of 10 times it is the receiver pack. If your fan does have a switch for fan direction, there is a good chance it is a bad switch. It could also be both. After 10 years with the fan, you might seriously want to consider purchasing a new fan.

Hi Leanne,

Most fans have green, white, black and blue wires. Green is earth or safety ground, white is neutral, black is for the fan and blue is for the light fixture. Some fans may deviate from these commonly used colors in which case you should consult the instructions. Below are links to instructions for different Hunter remote fans, additional instructions for Hunter remote fans or you can look up your fan by model number or use. It appears that the built-in remote Hunter fans have no provision for controlling a light when the fan is wired from a traditional switch instead of using the included remote, as they have only a green, white and a single black that remains powered constantly to supply the remote receiver. The hand held remote transmitter tells the receiver to switch power to the fan motor and light bulbs as needed.

It is possible that the transmitter or receiver you're using in this room is not working. Try using one of the other remotes with the non-working fan by matching the code of the remote to the fan. If it doesn't work, try selecting a different code on the fan and match it on the remote (in case there's a problem with that particular code in this location). Try all (or as many as you care) codes to see if any codes work with this remote.

By this time, you should have either found a working code with this remote and are all done, or still have a non-working fan. Since you have tried more than one remote - and know that one of them worked in the other room, suspicion falls on a faulty fan or integrated remote receiver. You can replace the fan if you like with a traditional fan and light and purchase an after market or third party RF remote control if you no longer wish to get an integrated remote receiver.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks!

Someplace there has to be a power (wall) switch that controls the power to the unit. Make sure it was not turned off by accident.If both the light and fan do not work on the unit, it sounds like a possible wiring problem or receiver problem. Unless you are good at house wiring, it may be best to have a professional come in. I would think a loose wire that takes power from the switch up to the fan/light unit or a white wire that would be a common neutral wire for both the fan and light. It might be a bit too complicated for someone without experience to attempt to remedy on their own.

Ceiling fan with light and remote stopped working


It's most likely the receiver for the remote (transmitter) -- it's located under the cover at the top of the fan -- will need replacing.

Doesn work at all


I've had the same problem. Get the technical assistance phone # out of the manual that came with the fan. They can give you the proper part # so that you can then call Home Depot and special order the receiver. However, I have done this and then installed the new receiver as advised by Hampton Bay and I still am unable to get the remote to operate the fan or the lights. I know the fan works becaue I bypassed the receiver and wired directly to house power. I don't know if perhaps I have a bad transmitter (remote). I'll try that next. The fan worked for about a year, now its just a headache.

Magic fan


Sounds like a defective infrared sensor in the fan. I assume you have tried removing the batteries in the remote to rule out the remote. I don't think you have a wiring issue....your light works and the fan works. Typical fan wiring involves the fan & lights. The wiring for the infrared should already be wired from the factory. Its in the infrared detection circuit.

Good luck!
