We purchased the Hunter Ceiling fan over a year ago and it has worked fine up until a couple of weeks ago. When we turn on the light it just continuously blinks on and off.

There is a watt governor, or black box for the lights to cut down on wattage or energy use. you can remove the black box for the lighting, and wire it directly to the main wires. white wire to white wire, and black wire to red wire. black and red are always a hot wire and white is a neutral wire. the part number on black box should be 98480-02. this should stop the lights from blinking. have a good day !

Remove light governor


I installed my Hunter Ceiling Fan a little over a year ago. A few nights ago my wife told me the lights in the ceiling fan blinked a few times when she turned it on. Over the next few day the problem got much worse. When I turned on the light switch, the lights would not turn on. After a few minutes the lights would begin to flash, like a strobe light. This flashing would last for about a minute.
This morning I removed the light kit. I noticed the watt regulator, part 98480-02. I connected the wires directly that were wired through the regulator. So far, the light now works fine!

Our Hunter Fan and Light with remote has been installed for over 1 year. It has always had the 'ghost' problem where it will randomly turn itself on or off but we have been able to live with that. Last...


Your ghost problem was probably due to a loose connection. The wire has probably come completely loose or the heat from the loose connection has damaged the relay.

HUNTER ceiling fan remote works with fan but not light


Unfortunately, you either have a faulty reciever or remote. A replacement will cost $30-$40 at homedepot2.gif. And it doesn't matter which is faulty because you can't purchase them seperately anyhow.

Hunter ceiling fan (model no. 25736) and light not starting


Home Depot sells universal remote systems (transmitter and receiver) for around $30 (in Delaware & Pennsylvania) -- don't know price in Chicago).

I'd just replace it. Hunter may be correct that they are the only source for the receiver, but if you get a new transmitter as well, you don't need their receiver. The labor is the same either way.

Fan with remote won't work with wall switch. I


I just recently purchased a hunter ceiling fan w/light and remote. Had it installed and wall switch would not work, only remote. I contacted Hunter company directly about this problem and I was told that they redesigned their fans with remotes so that only the remote works for turning off power to fan. The person who made that made that BRILLIANT change should be fired. So to those of you who own a newer hunter an product with a remote ne your wall switch will not work tat s te reason why.

Hunter fan/light with remote installed turns on by itself


Many times this is caused by stray frequencies in the neighborhood. And, sometimes changing the frequencies on the remote and receiver reduce the occurrence.

But it sounds like this may not be the case, here. If not, the receiver in the fan is the culprit and should be replaced. No danger, just annoying.

Unfortunatly that is a common thing with most manufactorers now a days! they are not in the service industry. make it, sell it, dump it, make a new one. and the cycle goes on and on. You may be able to find a repair person who can fix the fans for you at a reasonable cost.
