Ceiling fan with light and remote stopped working

Hi.

I have a ceiling fan in my bedroom that has recently stopped working. I need to change the lights which have burned out, but the fan stopped working in the night the other night. It has a remote with it, and when I click one of the fan speeds on the remote the fan blades jump just a bit, like they want to start turning, but that's it. Is it repairable? I don't know the model number, but the house is only 4 years old, and has only been lived in for a little over 3.

    Our Hunter ceiling fan does not have a chain and thus only works with a remote. When it stopped working recently, we thought maybe it was the remote's battery so we replaced the battery. That didn't help. Then we thought maybe it was the remote, so we replaced it. That didn't help either. Now we are not sure what to do next.

Hello jluiken,
The motor in the fan is going bad. Unfortunately it will not be cost effective to repair the item as you will be doing an overhaul on the main component. It would be cheaper for you to just purchase a new one. If you leave the fan on for a long period of time you will see that it will become hotter and hotter, which could be a fire hazard so please be careful. Sorry for the bad news.


If you do not mind, please rate my help, I would greatly appreciate it.Thanks

It's most likely the receiver for the remote (transmitter) -- it's located under the cover at the top of the fan -- will need replacing.

Hunter ceiling fan remote will not turn off light it just dims the light


Try this. Remove power from the fan. Remove batteries from the remote. Press butttons on remote (might be stuck). Apply power to the fan. Install batteries in the remote and try all functions. If this doesn't work, the remote may be defective or the remote receiver may be defective. I can tell you from my own experience I have a ceiling fan that loses its mind whenever there is a power outage. Has to be reeducated from scratch

Hunter Ceiling fan remote is operating all the other ceiling fans as well


Sounds like all the dip switches are set to factory still. Easy enough to fix.
Slide open the battery compartment on the back of the remote control and remove the fan's canopy against the ceiling. Then just change the switch to a different setting but make sure that the remote and fan have the same setting. Repeat this in each room so that all the fans have a different setting to each other.


Hope this makes sense.

The remote might have wrong orders. Get the battery out and insert it back and see if the problem solved.
Do you set the dip switchs correctly on the fan and on the remote? Numbers set must be matched. Otherwise, the fan won't work either.

My home is pre wired for a ceiling fan in the master bedroom. There are two light switches that control the pre installed wires. One for the light on the fan and one for the fan. There are four wires


The usual wiruing for these fan/light circuits is that the black wire on one switch is for the fan and the red on the other switch is for the light. If you are using a remote set up for both fan and light, then hook the remote wires to the black and white wires in the ceiling, You can cap off the red wire in the ceiling as this will not be used.

Sounds like you could have a problem with the fan....but there is also an equaly good chance it's the wiring of the fan. Perhaps a loose connection. If you are not familiar with checking electrical connections, you probably need to call an electrician to check the wiring SOON, before there is a short. If all connections are good, then you will know it's the fan (or the remote receiver on the fan).
Hope this helps!

Sounds like the remote receiver units (located where the mains connect to the fans) took a surge and have failed.
