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?

I have a ceiling fan with a remote. Remote isn't working and neither is the pull chain...? How do I reset it?


Besides checking if there is a wall power switch, I suggest you check for a circuit breaker that needs to be flipped back on. My circuit breaker is in my basement, and shows an orange plastic tab to show it blew off.

Why wont ceiling lights work after blown fuse when all other sockets/lights in the room work?


If turning on the lights caused such a huge surge of power that it flipped the breaker, it could have been enough current to fry the hot wire (the one electricity flows into the fixture from) leading from the source to the fixture, or to blow the contact point where it connects to the fixture. This is even more likely if the fixture is old and doesn't have a green grounding wire to dissipate excess current, or if your wiring is prone to weakening from age or animals chewing on it.

If this is the case, you should flip the breaker to the off position and call an electrician immediately, since the hot wire will still be live up to the point of the break. A live wire floating around in your ceiling is a major (and I mean major) fire hazard.

I have power to the fan because the fan works but i can't get the lights to turn on. It had been working earlier today and then it blew the breaker in the house and now the lights won't turn on but the...


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.

Hope this helped you.

Eaton Arc Fault Breaker type BRAF tripped. I reset it but lights will not work. Ideas please?


My arc fault breaker trips in my bedroom when ever a load is put on line. The trunk line comes into a three gang switch box and feeds the entire room. At times I can turn my ceiling fan and light on for 10 to 20 minutes before the breaker trips. Other times the breaker will trip when either switch is first turned on. I plugged a 4 watt night light in a wall receptical, without the ceiling light or fan on, it also trips the breaker. I have had other plug in lamps, 60 watt, work in other recepticals for a while. The problem seems to appear in all recepticals and lighting in the room.

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.

Fan is Erratic


Ceiling fans with wireless remote controls have an electronic receiver installed in the fan, which controls the light, dimming, and fan speed. Sometimes the receiver goes bad and needs to be replaced. If you have had any power outages or power surges, they may have fried the receiver. I've noticed that my ceiling fan light turns on when the power is restored after a power outage. Now, whenever my power goes out, I shut off the light switch that powers my ceiling fan so It doesn't experience a surge to to the controller when the power comes back on. I've purchased new receivers on eBay and Amazon to replace my blown remotes and receivers.
