Question about Hunter 27177 Remote Control

3 Answers

Fan does not work, light does

We installed the fan about 5 years ago and both the fan and light worked with the 27177 remote and receiver. However, as of about 1 year ago, the remote will turn on the light only, it will not turn on or off the fan. Thanks for your help! Dan

    Receiver doesn't appear to work. Light and fan doesn't turn on. Remote works on other light in the house when the dip code is changed.

Don't buy a Hunter remote controlled fan. Mine has had the remote receiver replaced twice and just died again. I will buy something else. I have the Hunter 25747.

Sounds like a ballis problem. at the base of you'r fan is a white box, that controlls the fax fungshions. Chack the wires, and see if they are still hooked up, they some time shake loose from the twist caps. 2. the baillis it self can go bad. I had this problem befor. the good news is it's an eazy fix, even though hunter dus not sell the remotes, you can go to menards and pick up a new remote set, the ones that the small remote clips on the wall. It has the same frek, and dip Switches. The baillis in that pack will work with you'r 27177 hunter universal video & fan remote. this worked for me. it should for you too. hope it helps, n good luck. mike

    That 1st guy was full of it you where not asking about a light, you where asking about the fan. you'r problem has nothing to do with a ir lamp. Ihope you did not take his bad advice, and chuck you'r remote. it's a dang good remote, the only 1 hunter made that I like. wish they kept making them. If you do deside to chuck it let me know, I'll take it in a heart beat. thanks mike.

Your remote uses a slightly different band of IR for one and the other functions; lamp or on/off. This IR lamp or the circuit that controls the IR lamp has failed. You will need a new remote.

Hunter is good about making replacement parts available but as you said this is five years old. You may have to look for an after market seller on Ebay and chances are very good you can find a new one there.

Dimmer isn't working nor the home shield light setting

I would double check the wiring of the fan. Is the remote an add-on that was purchased separately, and did it include a receiver unit which is installed in the fan housing? If so, I would double check the wiring of the receiver unit.

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.

Casablanca fan stopped working suddenly, both fan & light

You must 'reset' the remote. I've had it happen quite a few times.
1. Turn off power to fan. Then back on.
2. Using remote cycle the following fan buttons from high to med to low, then from low to med to high again. That 'should' fix the problem.

My casablanca fan versa touch 2 does not respond to remote control - batery is fine, breaker fuse too. I recall having a same problem some time ago, forgot, how I fixed it - I know it was something with...

I believe there is a dipswitch, and a non- dipswitch version. To sinc the remote to receiver, shut power off to the fan receiver by either a switch or breaker for about 10 minutes, turn power back on and press Hi, Medium, Low on the remote in that order. this should get them "talking" again. If this does not work, contact toll-free Jason at Fan Man Lighting 1-866-600-3267, he has 30 years experience with casablanca
