Question about Hunter Ceiling Fan Control Switch

1 Answer

Hunter ceiling fan

I have 3 Hunter 5 blade, flush mounted ceiling fans with two light bulb light fixture operated with a programmed remote control through each bedrooms original light switch. In two of the three ceiling fans, a light bulb burned out and now the remote will not work to turn on the fan or lights. We can turn the light on with the pull chain but when clicking on the remote to operate the fan, all we hear is a click and the fan will not operate. I've replaced the battery in the remote but this did not help. Any ideas? Mike

    The remote quit working. I turned off the electricity, it would not reset. The remote does not work at all. The light works on the pull chain, the fan does not, no speeds. Can I bypass the remote?

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

Hi Does the light fixture have a globe under the fan? What does the light fixture look like? Most of the light fixtures have small screw surrounding the globe that simply unscrew and the globe drops down. All fans are different and I will have to know what this one looks like. In the mean time I will look at some hunter fans on line and see what I find.

I have a ceiling light that does not have a switch anywhere. Can a hunter 27185 remote control be used to control the ceiling light fixture only. There is no fan in this scenario. How should it be wired?...

Connect the lamp output wire of the receiver to the hot wire of the fixture, and the incoming hot wire to the hot input of the receiver. Be sure to insulate the fan output wire(s) so nothing nasty happens if someone presses the fan on button.

Check the remote control manual to see if you can use compact fluorescent bulbs. You probably cannot if this is a dimming lamp control; most CF bulbs flicker wildly if used with dimmers, and will not last long.

You can also buy remote lamp-only switches.

The remote control works other than changing the direction of the blade. how do i manually change blade direction?

Look on the side of the Fan above the light fixture there is a little black switch you just need to switch it, make sure the fan is off before switching it.
