This is very likely the fan motor coils have burned out - or wires broken due to vibration.
If you run it on a low power setting, it can be a component fault that chops the current to reduce the speed. It may be repairable by yourself if something obvious, or at an electronic repair centre if it is the controller.
You will most likely need to replace the receiver with a new one from hunter. The receiver is actually a complete controller and contains the receiver, relays (which you hear clicking) and starting condensors(large capacitors which hold a charge that is "dumped" over the windings to get the motor to start from a dead stop). These appear to be pretty tightly assembled unless you have a desire to start replacing parts "off the board."
first turn it off, then rotate the fan, half turn and try to turn if on again. if it start running again you have a faulty motor, and need to replace it. or if the problem continue, try replacing the switch in the wall.
