If you own a Hunter Original, there is no reset button, but MANY people that have a remote control added (includng me) have , once power has been restored, found that the chain was pulled by someone and it got into the off position, rather than the slow, medium or high setting. With the circuit hot, pull the chain one more time and try to turn on your fan with the remote again.
Hope this helps.

Two of my four Hunter fans/lights have quit working. I have tried both the remote control and the pull cords but no luck. Is there some way I can verify if the two units are getting power?

Hardwired ceiling fan turned off by itself and stopped responding to remote control, but the light turns on/off.


I've had problems with Minka Aire also. You might need a new receiver. Call Minka @ 1-800-307-3267 and talk to someone in tech dept.. Should be a one year warranty on the receiver.

I have Hunter ceiling fan / light. I installed it. It worked fine for a little while, than one bulb blew out, then a second bulb blew out, now none work. Yes I repaced all the bulbs, still don't w


I would check with a voltmeter if you can safely to verify power at the light socket using an adapter to a plug in it. If you can not do that, with power off you may want to make sure that the socket contacts are good and clean. Sometimes they can become tarnished badly.

If the fan works then you are getting power again to the fan so that's OK. The lights are wired off of the same wires that power the fan normally so that means the problem is in the light assembly. Now there are different ways that ceiling fans are wired and you will need to figure out which you have as it is important and you will need to know which wires do what.
Usually black wires are used for fan, blue is used for the light kit, white wire is used for the common or neutral for both, while green is used for mechanical ground. This is very important!
One way to wire a ceiling fan is for the power to be directly wired to the fan, which is usually hot. The black and blue wires are connected to each other through the hot feed and pull strings control the lights and fan.
Or a single switch powers the ceiling fan and the light. The black and blue wires are both connected to the black wire which is the one that is switched. So when you flip the switch both the light and fan are turned on.
There's also a method in which two switches are separately wired to the ceiling fan and the fan light, with a 3-way conductor linked from the switch box. The black wire or that of the fan is linked to the fan wire while the light wire is connected to the switched wire from light switch. Meanwhile the white and ground wires are linked to their respective wires from the switch.
Now considering you blew the breaker odds are you have a short in the light kit wiring or the switch itself. Either way, turn off the power! Then remove the light kit by taking out the screws holding it on the ceiling fan. Then look to see if anything has come loose or black scorch marks anywhere. Now the problem area should be obvious. If you cannot see the problem then you should stop right there and get a replacement light kit. They are easy to replace and inexpensive. Leaving a shorted kit on the fan has the capacity to make the entire fan hot and provide a very painful if not fatal shock to anyone touching the fan body if the breaker doesn't blow.
An excellent site with pictures to do this is located here:http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/projects/ceiling_fan
Hope this helped you.

Both the fan and the light stop working. What are the first things to try?


Good way of asking for help!-- Thank you!

First make sure the circuit is not tripped at the Circuit Breaker--
(Are other lights on the same circuit still working OK?)

You will need to verify which breaker controls the voltage to this fan--
and you will need to turn the breaker OFF, while dismantling the fixtures.

Can you communicate with someone at the Breaker Box, while you work safely?
Have them turn the circuit on when you are safe and ready -- and reading voltage, etc.

Next-- Do you have a dimmer switch, (or just a wall switch) on the wall?
Do you know if the power is supplied to the ceiling, thru that wall switch?
If so, check to see if the dimmer or the switch has power coming in and out at the wall, and heading up the ceiling supply wire.

If the power is supplied at the ceiling, then you are going to have to get a safe ladder, and remember Ladder safety rules!

The tough part, is getting the heavy fan and light assembly safely down, where you can make some voltage readings at the supply circuit wires at the ceiling--

Maybe you have found a loose wire nut by now?
Or maybe a defective dimmer or wall switch?

Or what are you observing at the junction box, and the fan motor now?

Tell us more-- and we'll see if we can help yo to the next step.

Power went out in house last night. Now the fan


First check where the fan draws power from.

A light switch? Is it on?

Blown fuse, tripped breaker?

Good luck!

New Hampton Bay ceiling fans spin too slow


Slow spinning of the fan might be caused by a low voltage. Is there any way you can measure the voltage, and if the wires are properly connected, check for any loose wiring or rust in between connections. Maybe the breaker that supplies power to the fans has a loose connections inside, try putting a new breaker of same rated current. Check if those three fans are connected to the same breaker. Breaker can go bad from the inside not doing a proper connection and supplying a low voltage, this might be causing the slow spinning of the fan. Second the black box in the space with all the wires is called the capacitor.

Remote controlled ceiling fans stopped working


My guess is that a neighbor close by, got a similar fan. This is common I understand. Other than that.....I can not think of a single thing! I say that even after 30+ years of working with electrical, and electronics.
