    Prior to totally not working, just the light became inoperative. Then, the high speed became inoperative. Then the remote became inoperative. However, the pull chains continued to work. Now nothing.

    Is the breaker tripped? It has to be either the circuit breaker is tripped or the switch that turns the light on and off is either malfunctioning or turned off. The fan and light would not go bad both at the same time. So it has to be the power supply

    The fan light is hard wired. Please read the following email string.

Try a different outlet or the bottom or top half of the current one.I have had one socket blow in an outlet before.Besides that,plug in an extension cord from another outlet if your fan cord won't reach.It is not likely that both the fan motor and the light fixture would both blow without at least having melted wires.They are 2 seperate circuits.The only things they have in common are the wires and the outlet.If you just wired it up though,there likely is a wrong wire hooked up,and the result may have tripped the breaker but would have come on for about less than a second.
Good luck! Greg

    Sorry,since i am also a helper they do not allow me to see any previous conversation you had until you reply.All I can see is your problem.I would say now that I can see what has been said is that the fan is definitely fried.If it were the breaker,it would not just fail piece by piece.It's all or nothing.So...

    Sorry to say but you do need a new fan.Good luck! Greg

Fan buttons work the light. Light button does nothing. No button causes fan to operate. What's wrong?


If there are pull-chain switches on the fixture, their operation may have caused remote control to fail. Turn off power at the source, pause for a few minutes, and turn on power. Either fan or light control, or both, may work. If not, you will have to figure out which pull-chain operation makes things right again. To avoid future problems, disconnect the pull chains at the link so only the remote controls operation.

Can't turn off fan when light is on


Not sure, but if its a new installation, I would say that the wiring has been done incorrectly. Ceiling fans with lights should be able to work independently. both on / off or 1 on, the other off.

Hunter Light transponder fail?


Only way to know if it's the light is to take the remote receiver out and try the pull chain on light after rewiring to house wires.

Make sure your fan is on high with the pull chain switch. Push the remote Hi button then pull the chain until it's on the high speed, Then DO NOT use the pull chain. Same with light , Push light button on remote then pull chain until it's on then leave the chain alone. If that doesn't do the trick then you probably need a new receiver.

Ceiling fan is all wired up and on ceiling but light doesn't come on or fan doesn't spin. I have checked connections and tested for power. Is there a switch or anything on receiver that needs to be...


Jerry, from what you said, I assume you have a remote controlled ceiling fan. If that's the case, check the batteries in the hand held and the receiver, to make sure they are charged. Also, make sure they are installed properly. The Owner's Manual should have a reference to setting or resetting the codes for the remote control (Hand Held & the Receiver). Check those to make sure they are matching. And don't forget, the wall switch must remain ON for the fan to work, even with the remote control. The remote simply overrides the wall switch, when in operation. You may have to use the pull chain to start the fan motor the first time, then the remote can take over from there.

Good luck. I hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

PULL CHAIN FOR LIGHT BROKE AND IS INSIDE THE UNIT. HOW DO I GET THE LIGHT UNIT OFF TO GET TO THE PULL CHAIN UNIT.


"PULL CHAIN FOR LIGHT BROKE AND IS INSIDE THE UNIT. HOW DO I GET THE LIGHT UNIT OFF TO GET TO THE PULL CHAIN UNIT."

My oh my!
I don't know of any shortcuts, and the working position does not make the operation a pleasurable one. Not in Summertime!

The time I had to repair that, I needed to pull the whole fan down. Once the whole fan was down, the rest was easy!

It's easier that it appears, but mark all the wires connected in the box.
There is USUALLY a steel cable attached to the fan assembly and the box, to prevent the thing accidentally falling on someone's head.

If you don't have a helper, taking the blades off may be a good idea, but don't take my word for that. Putting them back on was no picnic.

FYI. If you don't have any bead-chain handy, a suitable lenght of sash cord is probably the best replacement.

Why won't my remote for my light on the Hunter fan work? The light also will not come on when I pull the chain.


I usually discuss this exact problem with customers that have a DIY ceiling fan. First; If you just installed this fan you noticed that there are several switches on the fan and on the remote, there is also the switch that originally controlled the ceiling light fixture (If it is a dimmer switch, it MUST be replaced with a single pull switch). All of these can be set wrong. Make sure the circuit breaker is not "tripped."
To start easy; assure that the wall switch is on, (leave all the "pull chains" alone, for now) Check to see that the remote has fresh batteries. press the light switch (on the remote, if it is a dimmer type set it to high, press it several times. If this does not work leave all the switches where they are and pull the light chain once, and again try the remote for the lights only. Hopefully that worked. Now do the same for the fan, press the remote once (on any speed) If that does not work pull the fan chain once try the remote again pressing the same switch, that should work. Now that you have it working remove all the pull chains, so it won't get "confused" again. Good luck!

mcdevito75 here, Don"t the fan lights work off the wall switch, The chain pull should be for fan speed. Check make sure electricity is going to the fan.

Light not working by pull chain or remote.


I would try removing the remote part. Connect the two main (light & fan) wires direct to your house main. Then if the pull chain works then you just need a new remote unit.
