    light want come on after changing. what the trick?

  • jups_1 Aug 23, 2008

    I replaced light bulbs on fan. Now the light will not turn off by remote. It will turn off by wall switch. The fan does operate with the remote though. The remote came with fan so there are no chains. Ideas?

    I had to replace 2 of the 4 lighbulbs. After replacing the bulbs, the remote failed to work for the lights. The remote works fine for the fan. I can shut the entire unit down at the light switch. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The remote will not turn the light on or off - I pull the chain and the light will go on then if I hit the remote the light will dim, hit it again and it is bright, if I hold the remote button down the light will dim then go bright again.
    The remote works fine for the fan

There is no fused protection in the receiver -- I just had the same problem.  When replacing a bulb, somehow the bulb arced in the socket on the fan and blew out the unit.  Time to replace the unit.  I may put an inline fuse this time for protection.

Make sure the light is switched ON at the fan...pull the chain a couple times and see if it make a difference.

I have a Hunter Ceiling Fan Model No. 27185. I can control the fan with the remote but can not control the lights with the remote. is there some instructions on how to operate the system?


27185 is the model # of the remote. Check to make sure your light wires are connected at the light fixture & receiver. Also, make sure your dip settings are set on the same frequency. Lastly, push the light button & pull the chain on the light.

Hunter fan 27185 has lost speed


Remote controlled ceiling fans can suffer a lapse of memory when there is a power outage. You eliminated the possibility of a dead battery in the remote by installing a new battery, but just to be sure remove the new battery and press all the buttons on the remote to eliminate the possibility of a stuck button then reinstall the battery. Next disconnect power to the fan at the breaker box, not a wall switch or by tugging on a chain. Turn the fan power on again. Using only the remote, check operation.

Hello nita... I believe the fact that the remote stopped working is due to a weak battery in the remote. Change that battery and you should be back up and running. Joe

I have a Hunter fan with remote and the light flickers without coming on completely - and you can hear a clicking noise coming from the fan. The fan works and the bulbs and batteries were changed


The pins inside the remote could have been switched or the wiring inside the fan could have come loose. Check the wiring at the fan first. The vibrations of the fan could have worked the light conrol wire loose.

I have a ceiling light that does not have a switch anywhere. Can a hunter 27185 remote control be used to control the ceiling light fixture only. There is no fan in this scenario. How should it be wired?...


Connect the lamp output wire of the receiver to the hot wire of the fixture, and the incoming hot wire to the hot input of the receiver. Be sure to insulate the fan output wire(s) so nothing nasty happens if someone presses the fan on button.

Check the remote control manual to see if you can use compact fluorescent bulbs. You probably cannot if this is a dimming lamp control; most CF bulbs flicker wildly if used with dimmers, and will not last long.

You can also buy remote lamp-only switches.

Fan with remote won't work with wall switch. I


I just recently purchased a hunter ceiling fan w/light and remote. Had it installed and wall switch would not work, only remote. I contacted Hunter company directly about this problem and I was told that they redesigned their fans with remotes so that only the remote works for turning off power to fan. The person who made that made that BRILLIANT change should be fired. So to those of you who own a newer hunter an product with a remote ne your wall switch will not work tat s te reason why.

make sure that you wire BOTH the black and black & white striped wires together to the supply, or the light won't work.
