Question about Hunter 27187 Remote Control

1 Answer

A light bulb in my ceiling fan burned out the other night when I turned it on with the remote. I changed the bulb, but since then the remote will not turn the light on or off. The wall switch will, and the remote works for the fan, but not the light. How do I fix this?

Sometimes all you need to do is switch the wall switch on and, off a few times while you press the lamp button (off press the button then: on press the button) no go? then: check or, replace the hand remote nine volt battery. still no go? then:
Check the wattage of the replacement bulb; some high wattage bulbs will rob power from the remote unit. didn't work? OK,
next turn off the power to the lamp and, open the lamp cover: you will see a large plastic rectangular box (the reciever) open the cover on the box and, you will see a block of tiny switches then: open the hand remote battery case it too will have a block of tiny switches these must match i.e. 1,3,5,= on 2, 4, = off both the remote and, reciever box. Barring that ...you'll need a new reciever for your fan.

I think our house is haunted. Just installed


See my post below: (Sorry, we're in the same boat!) Hunter ceiling fan with remote, have 5, 4 are seriously impaired! Lights dim to half strengh after variable time 10 seconds-30 minutes. And lights or fan turns on randomly (come home & fan on full blast), and one in which the lights won't dim (just blinks when try to dim)! Hunter "kinda" admits there is serious problem with remote but doesn't have a solution. Tells people to try changing to different code/channel on the remote due to possible interference (pain in **** to change code on ceiling base!), was totally ineffective. Then replaced receiver in ceiling base (another total pain) in 3 fans with new ones sent Hunter, still totally useless. Hunter's suggestion, don't use the remote, just use the pull chain. If I had wanted a pull chain fan, I'd have bought a pull chain fan. TOTALLY USELESS! Moral of story: If you want a remote ceiling fan (my friend found out that all their remotes are made by the same company in Taiwan), don't buy Hunter!!!!!
- P.S. I found a "Kinda"- fix for the lights dimming to half strenth. After turning on the lights, wait 1 second, then dim lights slightly, they will then stay on the strength that you dim them to. - P.P.S. When I changed the receiver in the one where the lights won't dim, it "solved" that problem...Now it has the same problem as the others, lights or fan turn on randomly!

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.

Lights flicker when turned off by remote


I had this same problem with a Hampton Bay fan with a remote light switch. I call the manufacturer of the of the switch and was told that the model switch I had would not work correctly with CFL bulbs. The problem is with the dimmer function. You either need to change the bulbs to incandescent, or change the remote receiver in the ceiling. Hampton Bay was kind enough to send me a new receiver that works with CFL. The CFL units are white, and the incandescent is black. Hope this helps you.

Hunter ceiling fan


Sounds like the remote receiver units (located where the mains connect to the fans) took a surge and have failed.
