Question about Hunter Dryers

2 Answers

Our brand new hunter 1912 mission fan 21978 hums at medium speed, and more at high speed. It is factory reconditioned, is it possibly faulty? It also makes a loud click through our stereo when turned on or off by the pull chain.

Hi!!
If it is affecting other appliances, it may be due that is pulling too many amps. If the wiring is correct, then your fan motor is defective and consuming too much electricity. Get a replacement.

Testimonial: "Thanks!! Actually found the humming is due to loose lighting housing, but the click may still be wiring."

Take it back for refund or exchange, the hum is poor windings in the motor and will only get worse with age.

Why don't fan blades rotate?


Sadly Hunter doesn't want people dismantling their stuff and replacing broken or burnt out pieces. They'd rather you buy a new one. If the motor has burned out which is possible a solution depending on how handy you are is simply hunt down a similar replacement and reconnect it.

Make sure the new motor has the exact same leads and connectors as the old one had as some Hunter fans have more than two leads. The model I have has four leads: a black, a white, a green and a red as my model has integrated lighting controls by passed by the motor.

I bought a simple blower motor with the same rating only two wires and with a bit of solder and wire I hooked up the motor and lights separately. The new motor is much faster than the older one so I had to add a tiny 1-way 500 watt dimmer switch to manually turn down the speed.

Wall switch control not working


Fan speed and light intensity are controlled by the remote as indicated in the instructions for the fan.

well, they could have. but before you throw it out, go to the hardware store, and buy a new pull switch. either that, or just run it with the high and low speeds. It shouldn't hurt it at all. But, if there is any clicking sounds, or wierd noises coming from it , DON'T USE IT!! it may catch fire. but it did last a long time. 20 years is good for a modern celing fan. though I like my antique 1907 westinghouse 72 inch 2 blade fan. It hasn't died yet!!!

Our hunter fan won't work on high speed any longer, low and medium speed work fine, when clicked on high - it only goes at medium


Sounds like the variable speed switch may be worn out.
You should be able to purchase replacement switch at the local home depot- type store in the electrical supplies.
Trying to get an exact match to replace may be a bit difficult, but a similar 3 speed switch should work just fine.

My hunter remote control ceiling fan doesn't go real fast. the highest speed is what a normal fan would do on medium. is there a fix?


if you have pull chain switches in addition to the remote control, your pull chain switch may be set to Medium, which would make the fan run on a maximum of medium speed.

Hunter ceiling fan-just installed -possible speed control problem


Sounds like the fan is defective. All internal wiring from the switch to the motor is factory installed. The fan has power going to it. Just to make sure, double check the wiring from the ceiling fixture to the fan.
Problem could be a faulty switch on the fan or faulty motor(bad winding for med. speed). Try reverse switch on the fan to operate the opposite direction and see if medium speed works. If medium does work in opposite direction, it pretty much points to a defective fan. In any case, unless you discover that the ceiling wires were reversed going into the fan, I'd say new fan to the returns dept.

Hunter's remote systems are notorious for failures. We replaced ours before the fan was one year old, and then it did it again within a year after that. The warranty, of course was on the ORIGINAL part, not the new part, so Hunter will never help you out, even though their remote receivers (the part in the fan) are junk!

3 speed Hunter Fan only has 2 speeds


Assuming that the unit was wired properly from the factory and without being able to look at the switch I would have to agree that the switch is bad. The different speeds are obtained by having a different winding for each speed. If the unit was wired properly at the factory and never had three different speeds then the switch is not rotating between all the contacts. The switch should only be a couple of dollars and would certainly be a cheap solution to try. You can check the existing switch by removing it from the circuit completely and checking the continuity with a DMM from the input to each output as you switch it. Continuity should move from one to two to three. If not the switch is bad. If the switch checks out OK then you have a bad winding in the fan and probably need a new unit. Good luck.
