SOURCE: Hunter fan model 25706 both the lights & fan have stopped working

Hello, I am not an electrician. I know you mentioned electricity is going to the fan and I read the other gentleman's answer if the motor component goes it bares consequence on the light working. It's plausible the motor went causing the light not to work. However I wondered if the wall switch went bad. I would change the wall switch and see if that is the culprit.

SOURCE: I have a 28870 Hunter

Hi, i know this maybe a stupid question but are you sure you are using it right as i have noticed a few people have got it wrong.

you know when you turn it on with the pull cord well leave that on then try switching it off at the switch and then see if it switches it off, then dont touch the pull cord and try the remote, as long as the pull cord is in the on position it should then switch off with the switch and on with the switch and also on and off with the remote, if your turning it on and off by the switch or the remote you need to make sure the pull cord is always in the on position if its not you will turn it on by the switch or button then you will still need to pull the pull switch to turn it on.

i hope i have written that how i think it sounds so basically switch it on so the pull cord is on and the lights are on, this tells us you have got power from the switch on the wall and the power is then going to the fan as the lights are on, so now the lights are on and lit up using the pull switch leave the pull switch in the on position but then turn the wall switch off and see if it then goes off, if it does go off turn it back on with the switch on the wall and dont touch the pull switch ok, now its back on now whilst its on using the remote turn it off and see if it goes off, if it does go off then try turning in on with the remote, all the time you are doing this the pull switch needs to remain in the on position as that is the main power for the light so if thats in the off position you wont switch it on by the wall switch or the remote,

but if how ever you turn it on by the pull switch and it wont turn off by the wall switch then the wall switch is wired up wrong and needs doing again, this will also cause the remote not to work as well,

so switch it on so the lights are on using the pull cord and now dont touch the pull cord again.
so the lights are now on
go over to the switch on the wall and turn it to off now the lights should be, if they are turn them back on using the wall switch ok,
so now the lights are back on
now get the remote and press off on the remote and see of the lights go off if they do then try switching them on with the remote.

now if the wall switch now turns the light on and off then you know the wall switch is working so as long as the pull cord is always in the on position you will be able to switch it on and off using the wall or the remote to turn it on and off, but if you pull the pull switch and turn it off that way neither the wall switch or the remote will turn ut back on.

im only telling you this as a lot of people think all the switches are wired seperate when in actual fact they are not. the power from the wall goes to the pull switch before it goes to the light and the same with the remote, so the last switch in the sequence is the pull switch so this switch decides if its on or off, so you need to make sure the pull switch is in the on position all the time if you want to use the wall switch or the remote.

but if you turn the wall switch off you wont be able to turn the light on using the pull switch as the wall switch is the 1st one in the sequence the power goes to the wall switch then out the switch into the light via the pull switch, so for it to work the wall switch needs to be on and the pull switch needs to be on and the lights should now be on, leave the pull switch in the on position and you should never need to touch it unless you want the fan on without the lights on, so if you want the lights to operate via the remote or wall switch then just leave the pull switch on.
but if you ever want the fan on without the lights you then turn the lights off at the pull switch but leave the wall switch in on position else you wont have no power going to the fan either.

i hope you understand that and can follow it enough to understand what im trying to tell you.

if the light comes on with the pull switch and stays on even when you switch the wall switch off then this means it has been wired wrong and the chances are the wall switch has been bypassed at some point so if only the pull switch switches it on and off even if the wall switch is in off position then the wall switch has been bypassed or wired wrong and this also means the remote wont work either.


let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok


or if you have a different problem than the one i have given you the answer for

Hunter fan Model 20722 lights flash several times when turned on?


Not the capacitor. If this fan has a remote make sure it's set for incandescent bulb & not CFL bulb. Should be where you install the battery. Also, make sure you're using the correct wattage as it might have a limiter in the fan.
