Question about Hunter 52" Ceiling Fan With Light And Remote Control
My ceiling fan and light was working and everything just stopped working
Hi there, First of all, can you tell if there's power going to the light? Lets first make sure that it's not a power problem. You can check your circuit breaker in your main electrical panel. Now, when checking this - leave your light switch in the ON position. So when you're checking the circuit breakers, you can see from afar if the light/fan comes on. Now, you can also have a light switch problem too. Turn the switch on and off; and wiggle the toggle (lever) on the switch to make sure its tight. Next, get up on a ladder and make sure that your switches on the light itself are on the ON position. It most likely is, but you're just ruling things out. So, if you think there's power getting to the light - then turn the wall switch OFF. You can also turn off the circuit breaker as added protection. You would then need to take off the bottom of the light/fan to get to the wiring connections. If you have a little inductance tester, which when you put it up against the wires - a light, a beep, or both come on to let you know there's power. These little testers are invaluable. There very inexpensive, and they can save you plenty of headaches. If you can buy or borrow one, you would open the bottom of the light/fan - and make sure all your connections are tight and secure. I come across a lot of shabby splices were the wires aren't all the way in (secure) when its installed, and eventually with the vibration of the fan motor - the wires will work themselves loose. After checking the connections, clear yourself from the light/fan and turn the wall switch ON. Then go back up the ladder and wave your tester up against the wires to see if you have any power at the light. If you do, then you most likely have a switching problem at the light/fan. To confirm this, you would turn OFF the wall switch again. Go back up the ladder and wave your tester to double check that there's NO power. Your next step would be to bypass the switch on the light/fan. You can do this by removing the switch and splicing (joining) the two wires together...or, you can locate each (only two) wire coming from the switch - and then splice (join) these two wires together. Now that you've bypassed this light/fan switch - get down from the ladder and turn ON the wall switch. If this is the problem, then the light/fan should work ALL together when your wall switch is in the ON position. If it works, then you'll have take that switch with you to your local Home Depot, Lowes, or hardware store to get this part. Its easier to take the switch with you and show the clerk at the store the part you need. They are common parts, so you should have no problem. Lets stop here for now. I believe you should find the problem by now. If not, please contact me again - and let me know what you have done, and what everything you did resulted in. I don't believe you'll go this far, but if so - then we'll proceed from there. Good Luck, and remember to turn the power OFF when you're working on the light/fan - and make sure your connections are secure when rewiring your connections back up. And then put everything back in order of how you took them off. I hope this works for you! Jim

SOURCE: Ceiling fan stopped working
two of my four Hunter fans/lights have quit working. I have tried both the remote control and the pull cords but no luck. Is there some way I can verify if the two units are getting power?

if the battery's are good then you broke it and you have to order a new one which you can do by calling the place that you got the fan from tell them what kind of fan you have and let them know that you nead a new remote and they will be able to help you do that.
