What can I do?

    The fan is wired to one wall switch that has two wires (one black and one white). The remote and the receiver are set for CFL bulbs and the DIP codes are set in both.

Hi there,

On item 1, yes, in order to use the remote the wall switch must be on. However, both can be used. Normally the wall switch would be used when leaving from or returning to the room, so it it is on while you are there.

While there the remote is used at your convenience.

Item 2 is either the receiver picking up a residual signal from an out side source or a flaw in the receiver.

If it happens every time, it's the receiver. An intermittent fade may be addressed by a frequency change.

Either one can be quite annoying. I would suggest an exchange while the warranty is in force.

Best regards
Mike

    At least your remote works. I have been involved with at least two dozen Hunter and Hampton remote kits that had such limited range it was easier to pull the string than stand up and get close enough for the remote to work.

    Have a good day

    Is there anything on the remote kit warning about the use of fluorescent lights?

    That might be your problem.

    You cant use a fader with them

First thing is make sure you have it set to the correct type light bulb you are using. It comes set for an CFL (Florissant Bulb) If you are using an Incandescent bulb then change it by way of a slide toggle switch inside the battery compartment. Also did you set the DIP codes on the transmitter and receiver exactly the same per the instructions? To manually turn the fan/light off you can always just turn the power off at the wall switch. One thing that might be the problem is how the fan is wired. It may be wired on 2 wall switches. One wall switch may be for the fan and the light may be on a 3 way wall switch system which will have a switch at 2 locations. You say it goes off all by itself which makes me think this is the case. Turn the light on and then look for a wall switch at 2 locations that control the power to that light. It is very common to wire a ceiling fan with the fan on a single switch and the light on a 3 way switch at 2 locations. I wire them this way all the time for connivence of the home owner.

    Ok, as I understand it your problem is that the light goes out all by itself. If that is the case they there is some sort of interference coming from somewhere. If you are near an airport, police station, radio station, or anything else that may be broadcasting an RF signal you may be getting interference. Change the DIP codes on the receiver and transmitter to see if that stops the interference. The fact that you must use the remote turn the light on is normal. You can turn the light off with the wall switch but you cannot turn it on. That is the purpose of a remote. You dim the light by holding the on/off switch on the remote in.

Lights come on at random .has a remote how to fix ?


The fan remote control receiver used in the Hunter 25730 model fan (see picture) is not available from Hunter. Remove the fan from the ceiling. Remove the receiver and take it to recycling. It can be replaced using a readily available and inexpensive replacement universal remote and receiver controller. There are limitations though. The Hunter receiver provided fan reversing functions. The universal controllers do not. You therefore have two options.

Option 1: The universal receiver can be installed such that the fan direction is fixed, either up or down, all other functions operate normally.

Option 2: A reversing switch can be purchased from Radio Shack for about $4 and installed in the fan. This does require cutting a square hole and drilling two bolt or rivet holes in the side of the cylindrical housing which previously housed the Hunter receiver. I'd suggest the Radio Shack DPDT slide switch part number 275-403.

Refer to the wiring diagrams and connector pinout diagram for connections. Please note that the connector pinout diagram is the connector that is soldered to the circuit board as shown in the photo of the Hunter receiver. If your motor wire colors are different then with the connector unplugged from the receiver use a multimeter to probe all the motor wires in order to identify two pairs of wires that indicate approximately 70 ohms each pair. These will be the motor windings. 6b0a1409-5a20-4efe-a059-c600652e9512.jpg 5da8e4ef-1b54-40d0-a8a4-21d4608b1d23.jpg 9fc8772d-3ac3-41b7-aa55-78ccc6e5ea00.jpg 0759e340-6464-4c4b-90f5-6d9926e74e42.jpg

Most likely this is caused by radio interference from some other device nearby. Try changing the "channel" by changing the dip switches on both devices and make sure they match. :)

Hunter ceiling fan (model no. 25736) and light not starting


Home Depot sells universal remote systems (transmitter and receiver) for around $30 (in Delaware & Pennsylvania) -- don't know price in Chicago).

I'd just replace it. Hunter may be correct that they are the only source for the receiver, but if you get a new transmitter as well, you don't need their receiver. The labor is the same either way.
