Question about Hunter 52" Ceiling Fan With Light And Remote Control

Ceiling fan remote not working

I am not able to turn my fan or light on anymore. Everything worked great with the remote and now it does not do anything. I have replaced the batteries in the remote and I have tested the power at the fan. There is no override to turn the fan on. Is it possible the receiver for the remote is bad at the fan? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    remote works for light, but not fan

  • Pointe_Man Sep 01, 2008

    Well this is a very similar problem, I'm not sure I understand everthing that is happening.

    I installed 3 swithches in three locations, by the door as I enter the room and then on each side of the bed I have a switch for the light and the fan. So there are a 3-way switch by the door and a 3 way switch on the left side of the bed and a 4-way switch on the right side of the bed. I can say with some certainty that all of the wiring is correct. But after connecting the remote I can not do anything with the remote unless first I turn the light switch on. Then I can use the remote as it is intended. The fan switch now never works. If I have the fan and lights on, and turn the light switch off both the light and fan turn off.

It is certainly possible that the remote went bad -- after all, it is an electronic device, and is was "made in China". With that said, there are other possibilities:

* The receiver, which is what receives the signals sent by the remote control, could have died. In most remote-controlled fans, the receiver is located in the ceiling canopy (the decorative part up by the ceiling, which hides the wires). In other fans, it's located in the switch housing (the part of the fan to which the light kit attaches). Solution: try everything else on this list; if nothing works, replace the receiver. Universal replacements for most models are available at Home Depot and Lowes.

* A wire on that receiver could have come loose. Solution: check all wires for secureness.

* A wire in your wall or ceiling -- the wire which provides power to the fan -- could have come loose or been chewed through by a rodent. Solution: use a circuit tester to check whether there's power at the connections at the top of the fan, in the ceiling, where the fan connects to the building's wiring.

* A circuit breaker could have tripped or a fuse could have blown. Solution: check your circuit breaker or fuse panel.

* The DIP switches inside the remote control -- which set the frequency on which the control transmits -- could have been knocked out of position accidentally or by a child playing with it. Solution: check the code on the DIP switches on the receiver in the fan -- then, make sure the remote control has its DIP switches set the exact same way.

If none of the above work, then yes -- the problem is with the receiver or the transmitter (remote). The two are typically sold as a pair, and universal replacements are available at Home Depot and Lowe's.

Hope that helps! Feel free to ask for clarification if you need it!

Remote control part #85094-02, Hunter Fan Co. stopped working after falling on tile floor.
It doesn't turn on not light nor fan. After inspecting circuit board there is no damage of components.
Pressing down any button lights up the red led, and no function either.
Thanks in advance for any help to solve this problem.

Take the fan down. Remove the blades, by pass everything, by cros wiring the fan using a plug in to see if the motor is working. If it works then you have a defective remote.

If the switch is "OFF" on the wall, the remote will not control anything. The power has to reach the receiver first. If it worked before you turrned the swich off, than one of two things. Either
A: You blew a circuit to the unit or
B: Your receiver went out.
First thing I would do is check that POWER is getting to the receiver.

Fan and remote not working


If you haven't already done so, replace the remote's battery with a brand new one . Make sure the replacement battery is NEW AND UNUSED, AND WAS PURCHASED RECENTLY, SO IT IS FRESH. Make sure it is installed properly, making good electrical contact, and the proper polarity is observed. Was the remote dropped, sat on or stepped on? Was a liquid spilled on it? Did your pet chew on it? Are any of the buttons loose or stuck? If the remote seems ok, try removing 120 volt power from the fan by turning off the circuit breaker or fuse an your homes main electrical service box. Wait 30 seconds, then turn 120 volt power for the fan back on. This may reset the speed control in the fan unit. If it does not cure the problem, consult a professional electrician, or replace the fan, whichever is more cost-effective.










wait 30 seconds and turn 120
