You probably need to re-sync the remote to the fan. To do this, turn the power off to the fan; and within ten seconds, hit the "3" button, then the "2", and then hold the 1 button until you hear a click. This should fix it. Good luck!

Let me add the the sync thing. I have a hunter 28424 ceiling fan
In my case I have a wall switch that kills the fan and the light. It seems that now the remote and the receiver get lost when I shut it off that way. I just found ( after banging my head against the wall for 3 weeks) that after turning the power on at the wall switch, the fan will be in the 1 or 2 speed. I have to then hit the 3 then the 2 then the 1 and then the zero for it to sync. When I hit the zero button, iI hear a click and then I can change the speed of the fan as well as turn the lights on. I was never, from day one, able to get the lights to stay on while on High. Low, no problem, but then again I am using CFLs and that might be the cause. I wa dreading having to pull it down to change out the receiver. Its mounted 15" up on a cathedral ceiling and it weighs a ton. I know I put it up there.
Hopefully this helps other out there and reading the ongoings withI Hunter i would say this is the last hunter fan iwill ever purchase. If you do need to have you receiver repaired these people might be able to do it.
I was just about to take the plunge when I found the fix.

If your remote is not behaving properly, you can reset it. To do so, remove one of the batteries, hold down the All Off button, and reinsert the battery. A message will appear on the remote screen indicating that the remote has entered safe mode. Next, connect the remote to your computer and sync it. The remote should now be updated and functioning properly.

I need to reset a television remote

After battery replacement, you should set it up with the set-up codes to your device, because, as soon as you took out the batteries from its battery compartment, the remote control will reset to it factory settings. You should re-configure it with your device again.
If you wish to get more; check the site linked here. It has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. See it in "Mosaic" view. It will make surf easier.

While going through the setup procedure the Set 3 was accidentally changed to Set 1. Any activation of the Control setting only makes the unit go to "Set 1" It appears to be locked up at that...

You can try resetting the remote itself (this is necessary whenever the batteries are replaced). Remove the batteries, as if to replace them, press any key on remote (to clear its buffer) then reinsert them. Next step, since your unit is 'Set 1' (or remote command mode 1 - DVD1/RC1) - you could (on the remote) press 1 and OK/ENTER together - hold them for 10 seconds, then release.

This should restore the remote to the unit. If it doesn't, a workshop service may be required to reset the unit internally, but at a cost. Try the remote battery reset first (even try using new batteries).

Remote appears frozen

I got the same issue with mine, and hooking to the computer and upgrading the firmware worked for me. I first had to take the bateries out and let it sit for 24 hours so it would loose the codes inside. No problems after that.

- Check if the battery is ok.
- Some remote control have reset button, you can find it at the front or back at the compartment of the battery push the rst button with pin or ballpen to reset it and try.
- Some remote control have selector switch in both remote control and at the board inside the unit. Try to transfer the switch button from A to B and also at the board inside the unit and reset the remote control and try.Or need to reconfigure the remote control to select the frequency.
- Try your remote control to other unit with same brand as yours to confirm if your remote control is really need a replacement. If it works then your receiver board in the unit is need a replacement. Or if wont work then you have to buy a new remote control. But if you have no budget then try to switch on the unit using emergency button to operate the unit.
