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

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

The problem is most likely a interruption in power. I just e-mailed Hunter asking if I could stop this from happening since my fan is over the bed. Their reply is as follows... The light will come on after power is restored following an interruption. This is a design feature of the remote control and cannot be modified or adjusted. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Do not use the factory default position in either fan. Double check the dip switches, and make sure they are the same for each individual receiver and remote.Different codes for each. Dip switches are the oppsite direction in the remote for some reason?

SOURCE: Can't control light at switch

We just purchased this same remote, and have the same issue. All my other older remote sets (from Hunter) do work both ways. If the instructions that come with the remote state when you turn on the light switch the light will come on. So seems like some other issue.

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 installed a Hunter On"Off fan and light control model 27157 on a Hunter Augusta fan model 21338. I tested the remote control and the fan and light on, however, after a period of time, the fan turns on...


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. :)

Light goes on by itself


My solution for intermitent light on/fan off-on: It is not outside interference. It is defective receivers. I took back my second 27185 back to Menards with the exact same problem as the first. I went to Home Depot, bought a Hampton Bay model 191-691 remote unit for $8.00 less with same features and when you turn the lights off then back on, the receiver remembers the brightness level you turned off at. Been installed for a week now with no problems. Hunter would have acted up the first day.

Can't control light at switch


It is wired so that you control the light with the remote. You cannot have it both ways. You either control it with the wall switch or the remote. Once you kill the power to the receiver by turning off power at the wall switch, you are only applying power to the receiver when you turn power back on. You are not supplying power to the light. You then must turn on the light with the remote. This is the purpose of a remote fan/light control. You could rewire it to control the light with the switch and only control the fan with the remote if you wish, but as you have it now, it is working correctly.

Fan and light control model 27157


yeah, if you take off the battery cover on your fan remote there should be something called a "dip switch". it wiil be numbered 1,2,3,4, just flip these switches up or down to match the receiver that will be located in the fan houseing or in the fan canopy.
