I have my fan wired to a 3-way switch and remote control. When I turn on the switch the light automatically turns on but neither the fan or light responds to the remote. I checked the jumpers, wiring, connections, antenna, battery in remote. What is confusing me the most is that the fan worked before. Worked perfectly for about 2 months then one day it stopped. The light still comes on when I hit the wall switch but that is all it does. I tried everything I can think of and any advice would be appreciated.
I had the same problem and I thnk Hunter Fan knows about it....I just called Hunter Tecnical Support at 901-745-9222 and they sent me a new White circular receiver which goes inside of the canopy and it worked fine after installing the receiver....

Is the remote control function an add-on to the fan, or is that built into the unit? If it's built in you'll want to go to the manufacturer on that one. As for wires in the wall, black is "usually" the 'live' wire, while white is the cold line. I'm no expert on wiring, but have done some outlets and light fixtures before. Good luck!
The combination of wall switch control and remote control tends to throw the unit into a tizzy. Try disconnecting power at the source and starting all over again. You may have to abandon wall switch control and rely solely on the remote.
by looking at the sw. it looks like u can only put it to a low dim and not off and the button at the bottom is all off including the fan if this is correct u should be able to change to a different kind of fan sw. combo or even a remote style that comes with a receiver ,also your fan should have three wires at the box a light wire "blue" a fan wire "black" and a neutral "white" oh and a ground "green" in order to switch these separate u need those 3 wires at the sw. also . but with a remote u only need the hot and neutral it hooks up in the box or canopy of the fan to the receiver all wires are marked for easy installation turn power off to be safe u can install a regular sw. to over ride the remote and turn power off at the fan .......its alot i know but hit me up if u need more help.
The problem is with the remote receiver attached to the fan body. It is a small device that acts as a remote switch and this is cradled in a pocket inside the ceiling fan itself. If you are handy, you can replace this device yourself. I believe you need to purchase a new kit from Lowes that comes with a matched transmitter and receiver for fan control. Go to Lowes Lighting section for this product.
That may be, because you were using the Remote Control to operate it, but then turned off the wall switch instead of turning it off using the Remote Control.
Turn the wall switch back On and try to get the Remote Control to take back over the operation. If that solves your problem, in the future you will know to turn off the fan and lights with the remote, before turning off the wall switch.
Hope this helps solve your problem. My wife had to learn the same way with ours.
It is wired so that you control the light with the remote. You cannot have it both ways. You either control it with the wall switch or the remote. Once you kill the power to the receiver by turning off power at the wall switch, you are only applying power to the receiver when you turn power back on. You are not supplying power to the light. You then must turn on the light with the remote. This is the purpose of a remote fan/light control. You could rewire it to control the light with the switch and only control the fan with the remote if you wish, but as you have it now, it is working correctly.
·If you installed more than one remote-controlled ceiling fan, set the DIP switches on both receivers and the control of one fan to an identical alternate sequence (such as "all up" rather than "all down"). Otherwise, when you turn off the ceiling fan in one room, it will turn off the fan in the adjoining room. You can also go to the internet and enter GOOGLE.com in the GOOGLE search box enter Hunter.com homepage. You should find all the help you need there.

So you have Hampton Bay fans and universal remotes? If so, then either the remotes are not programmed correctly or the receivers are not wired for the remotes. That is one bad thing about using universal remotes.
I suggest you go to Home Depot and buy one Hampton Bay remote, bring it home, turn of the breaker to the fans, and get on a ladder to get to the receiver. Check the dip switches, and program the switches on the remote exactly the same way.
(While you're at it, make sure the universals dip switches are set exactly the same.)
