Question about Hunter 21871 56'' Ergonomic Brushed Nickel Ceiling Fan

2 Answers

I have two identical fans in my house which are controlled by remote control. The problem is that when I turn on the light or fan in one room, the light or fan comes on in the other room as well. How do I fix that? How do I change the frequency of one of the remotes so that it doesnt control the other?

On the fan, the sensor that picks up the signal, usually a black box, it has switched on it, you need to switch the knobs to another channel or set up and also make one remote control match that configuration or channel, that will separate the fans and make them work independently

SOURCE: Hunter Fan has stopped accepting remote control signals

The receiver is at the bottom of your fan (just above any light kits), inside a round case about 4 inches tall. You will have to take 3-4 screws out and inside you will see the receiver. It should have an electrical connector going to it with dip switch as well. It will pull right out of the case.

By the way, I am having the same problem and am trying to get ahold of Hunter for a new receiver.

I have the same problem, except I live in a multi unit condo where many of the occupants own the same fan! You can imagine how  frustrating this is when your fan or light comes on or you can't  agree on a fan speed. Anyway, I spoke to a MinkaAire customer service guy and he tells me that the switches in the receiver are located under the mounting ring. You need to unscrew the ring and it should be located in there. I haven't tried this myself as my fan has a mind of its own as I type and everytime I turn it off to unscrew the mounting ring, the damn thing turns on again.

SOURCE: The Hampton Bay Altura Ceiling fan functions only with remote.

You can hard wire this fan to 1 or 2 switches, bypassing the remote unit entirely. NOTE: You will only have 1 fan speed and no light dimmer. Set the fan at the desired speed and direction using the remote system PRIOR to hardwiring. The fan will remember the speed and direction.

Connect your house wiring directly to black and white (and blue if lighting is required) wires. With a 2 switch system, your third house wire should be red. Connect the blue fan wire to the red house wire.

Your 2 switches will now separately operate the fan and light functions. As stated earlier, you will only have 1 fan speed and will be unable to change the direction, so set your desired speed and direction before you rewire.

Hope this help!

SOURCE: Remote controlled ceiling fan has mind of it's own.

I have the same fan. The fan and the remote have some "jumpers" which allow you to change the codes, useful if someone else nearby has the same fan. You can see the jumpers inside the remote, open the back cover... you'll see "4 3 2 1" on the circuit board. Unfortunately you'll need to dismount the fan to change its jumpers, they need to be the same as the jumpers in your remote (which you can move around pretty easily).

Hunter Ceiling Fan Remote Works Sporadically


The part that receives the signal from the remote control is the receiver which is located in the motor housing.

My ceiling fan/light goes on when I am not in the room. The remote is on the bureau. I sometimes put the remote in another room but the fan/light still goes on. Model 327185-060


The simple solution is to turn the wall switch OFF when, the fan is not in use. I really don't think the remote alone is the culprit. Because, you say it happens even when it's in the bureau or in another room. Remote controls for ceiling fans have a very short range and are generally infrared remotes, rather than radio frequency remotes. So, if the infrared signal does not reach the receiver's sensor in the fan, it won't function. If it's a radio frequency remote control, do you have any other remote controlled fans in the house? If so, does the suspect fan seem to turn ON after you have activated the other fan? If that happens, it means both remote controls are on the same frequency. Changing the frequency of one, should solve the problem. See your Owner's Manual for directions on how to reprogram the frequency codes.

If none of the above solves the problem, maybe you should contact the "Ghost Hunters" TV show.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My mother has two identical hampton bay ceiling fans with lights that are operated by a remote control. She does not know the model number. The remote will not operate the fan or the light anymore. It is...


Someplace there has to be a power (wall) switch that controls the power to the unit. Make sure it was not turned off by accident.If both the light and fan do not work on the unit, it sounds like a possible wiring problem or receiver problem. Unless you are good at house wiring, it may be best to have a professional come in. I would think a loose wire that takes power from the switch up to the fan/light unit or a white wire that would be a common neutral wire for both the fan and light. It might be a bit too complicated for someone without experience to attempt to remedy on their own.

Track lighting remote control similar to that of ceiling fan?


Yes, but the remote operates on the switch that turns the lights on and off. Lutron has this kind of technology and it is really cool. I have it all over my house and I don't even have to go room by room turning lights off; I just push a button from my bedroom. Along with a single remote that can be used with each switch in your house, you can program a house remote that controls the lights and ambiance of every room.

Fan and lights comes on automatically


· If you installed more than one remote-controlled ceiling fan, set the DIP switches on both receivers and the control of one fan to an identical alternate sequence (such as "all up" rather than "all down"). Otherwise, when you turn off the ceiling fan in one room, it will turn off the fan in the adjoining room. You can also go to the internet and enter GOOGLE.com in the GOOGLE search box enter Hunter.com homepage. You should find all the help you need there.

Fan is Erratic


Ceiling fans with wireless remote controls have an electronic receiver installed in the fan, which controls the light, dimming, and fan speed. Sometimes the receiver goes bad and needs to be replaced. If you have had any power outages or power surges, they may have fried the receiver. I've noticed that my ceiling fan light turns on when the power is restored after a power outage. Now, whenever my power goes out, I shut off the light switch that powers my ceiling fan so It doesn't experience a surge to to the controller when the power comes back on. I've purchased new receivers on eBay and Amazon to replace my blown remotes and receivers.

Minka Aire remote controlled ceiling fan


I have a newer Minka w/ wall controller. The books says to make sure both the wall control and the receiver(up in the fan) are both programmed the same. My receiver has no little switches but has a sticker stating that you need to hold the 'fan off' button down for 3 seconds after turning on the power so the receiver can memorize the program in the wall switch. You have 60 sec to do this after power is turned on. Good luck !

Remote calibration


I installed three fans in the same room and one remote ran all three. In order to get the dimmers all to bring the lights up and down together, I changed the dip-switches in the fan housing so that the remote would only work one fan at a time. I then brought the dimmer lights all the way to bright. After all the lights were equally bright, I again altered the dip-switches so that all three and the remote were identical. The remote then dimmed all three lights equally.
