Question about Hunter Air Conditioners

1 Answer

About two years ago, I purchased a: Hunter 56 In. Brushed Nickel Ergonomicâ„¢ Remote Control Ceiling Fan Model 21871 A few months ago, a bolt of lightning struck through my house and my fan stopped working ever since then. The remote works fine since I can see the senson light up. And I know the electrical wiring is fine too because it was tested. However, I don't believe my fan is under warranty and I sm trying to find someone who could look at it and let me know if it's worth the money to replace whatever part is not working, or if it less expensive to just replace the fan. Thanks so much!

To have a contractor in your area look at this unit, try using the contractor search on the home page of fixYa, or simply use the yellow pages for your area.

My guess is that the lighting burnt or damaged the motor windings in the fan. I am sure that replacing the motor would solve this issue. I do not know where to find one though. I hope this helps some.

Why does my Fujitsu ductless AC turn on by itself and without me using the remote control?


You would have to figure out what is sending a signal to its receiver. If no signal is being sent then its the signal then it may be the receiver(board) in the indoor unit. Also, other remote controllers for, TV, fans,ps3 or ps4, DVD player, dish ect... have the potential to interfere. I've had/seen a Hunter ceiling fan turn a window unit on 5 mins after you turned on the ceiling fan. Of course the customer was hard to convince. If you want, try removing all remotes to the other side of the house. That's the cheapest thing to try. You can check all wire terminals and grounds to ensure they are tight. Other than that? Work safe!

How do I stop my hunter's ceiling fan from causing the breaker to trip?


Is it a new installation? Your ceiling fan should never trip a breaker unless it has a problem in the fan or light fixture attached to it.

How to sync the remote with the fan?The remote was operating the fan, but someone must have pulled the chain on the fan.


I have a ceiling fan that fails to operate under remote control whenever a power outage occurs. The solution is to pull the chain to guess which is an ON position, then operate the remote to select fan speed or off. Same routine for the light, if there is one.

Two years ago we redid our kitchen and installed a Hunter fan. About a month ago I pulled the chain to change the fan speed. It must have stripped or something because now that chain won't work at all....


Contact hunter and they will send you a replacement switch.. Its very easy to change. You do not have to remove the entire fan to do so.

Hunter Customer service is. 1-888-830-1326

Hunter does in fact make some of the best ceiling fans there are.

P.S. You might be sure that the chain simply hasn't bound up a bit.. Check to make sure its not hung on something.

Purchased state street brushed nichole hunter fan 52" with remote control installed working fine. cannot turn off and on by wall switch only remote control can this be fixed


Something got wired wrong when it was installed. The wall switch should still be able to function even with the remote control option. Especially if, the batteries were dead in the remote. Check the wiring sequence again, comparing with the installation (wiring) instructions.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

The remote on my Hunter ceiling fan (Model: 27185 - 060) does not activate the ceiling fan. I can turn the light on manually, but not the ceiling fan. I cannot see the antenna on the ceiling fan.


The first thing you need to do, is change the battery(s) in the hand held remote, as well as the battery(s) in the receiver inside the fan's cowling. Weak batteries will limit a remotes operation.
And, FYI - there is no antenna on the ceiling fan.

I hope this helps you. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

The remote was dropped and now the fan does not work. It is not an easy task to get to the fan to replace since the ceiling is 18 ft high. We were sent a new remote and told it would work, but it does...


The remote has to be programmed to match the existing fan's receiver code. The programming information should have come with the hand held remote. If it didn't, contact whomever you purchased it from.

I bought a house 5 years ago with a Hunter fan installed with a remote control. It has model 84757 on back of fan and it stopped working so I just changed the wall on/off switch which was broken. Now the...


Replacing the batteries (2) should solve the problem. There batteries in the handheld remote and batteries in the receiver inside the fan's cowling. When installing the batteries, be sure they are facing the proper direction. If they aren't the remote will not work. Also, keep in mind, the wall switch must be ON when using the remote control.

Hope this helped you.

I moved into a house with 2 hunter ceiling fans with remote control. Both are set to the same frequency. Where is the transmitter located on the fan to change remote frequency setting?


Typically it is directly under the very top cover. it is slide under the hanger on the ceiling. Just remove the 4 screws and drop the cover and it should be there.
