SOURCE: Hi, first, the light stopped working. I replace

The little black box inside the fan motor area is called the ballast and in most cases this is what goes out and needs replacement.

SOURCE: my fan was installed 2 years ago. now the remote

when incandescent light bulbs burn out they often draw huge amounts of current . thats the bright flash you see .. as the filiment breaks it can start an arc .. the arc vaporizes the filiment material which becomes a conductive plasma.. that, for all practical perposes, short circuits the lamp for a short time ..currents can go so high that they damage the "triac" (like a transistor) in the solid state controller (the electrical brick inside your fan) ... often the triac fails shorted ... so it stays on all the time just as yours is doing ... the triac is usually soldered to a printed circuit board inside the fans electronic control box .... sometimes they are easy to change and are inexpensive ... but often they are sealed inside with potting compound ... that makes them unrepairable by anyone not skilled in the art ....they expect you to buy a new control unit .. or sometimes you can send in your control unit for repair ... you have to call the manufacturer to find out what they want you to do ... by the way .you cant use the new spirial lamps in most of these controllers... there is no hazzard in using your fan/light the way it is . of course you wont have remote control over the lamp until the controller is repaired or replaced ... light bulbs above 40 watts have a built in fuse in their base.. that is supposed to minimize this problem .. but the triac can blow before the fuse opens .... light bulbs 40 watts and below are not required to have the fuse so present a little greater risk to solid state controllers .....

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.

Need instruction page for the Hunter light/fan remote control

There is a battery in the hand held remote and another battery in the receiver which gets tucked into the ceiling mount cover. Remove the ceiling cover and you will see the battery there, usually a 12 volt battery.

The upp/down slide is a dimmer.

In the event that changing the batteries doesn't solve your problems, Hunter makes replacement remote sets, available at Home Depot, lowes, etc and usually around twenty dollars.

Light/fan won't turn on

A remote control seems a rather unnecessary complication as it means the light fitting must include some fairly sensitive electronics that will inevitably affect the reliability and lifespan of something that needs to be reliable and long-lived.

Electric motors are electrically fairly noisy and not very friendly towards sensitive electronics, especially at switch on or switch off and voltage surges on the supply can happen at any time. The only way to build such a remote controlled fan to be long-lived and reliable would be to fit filters, suppressors and shielding until it is impossibly expensive. The sensitive electronics in reality are unlikely to represent a greater quality than a far-eastern handbag factory can manage.

I suggest you call an electrician and if the electronics are faulty, have them bypassed so it is controlled solely by the wall switch and drop the remote in the garbage...

Fan and light not working

The receiver in the fan might be burnt out,it is at the ceiling in the large base or maybe the transmitter. Do you have fresh batteries in the transmitter?

Remote control settings

There's two options, depending on the brand of remote. The most common is that the reciever located in the fan ceiling canopy has the same switches. Check how they are set and match it on the remote. The other option is that the reciever matches the frequency of whatever the remote is set to. To set this you have to turn off the circuit, wait a minute or so, turn it back on. Then on the remote, hold down the "stop" button for a few seconds. It should be set. I'd check the receiver first though. I should mention also, that when they come from the factory, the switches are usually all in the OFF position (or possibly all in the ON position). Unless they were changed on installation (which may be the case if you have more than one remote controlled fan) they are probably set that way. Try that first.
