You have to get the correct receiver for that fan. There's no such thing as a universal remote,no matter what it says on the box. Call 1-888-830-1326 and you can order your correct part.

Hey dale. Sounds like either the integrated remote pack inside the fan housing might be bad, or the reversal switch part. If it has a switch on the fan housing to change it from forward and reverse, you could try going to a hardware store and replacing that switch. If that doesn't work, then it is probably a bad remote receiver pack iside the fan, it will be a bigger, probably black little box. If this is the case, your better off getting a new fan, as it will cost about the same. If your fan doesn't have a little switch to change blade direction, 9 out of 10 times it is the receiver pack. If your fan does have a switch for fan direction, there is a good chance it is a bad switch. It could also be both. After 10 years with the fan, you might seriously want to consider purchasing a new fan.

Model 28870-420 ceiling fan. Why don't lights respond to remote or pull switch and motor just hums?


Your fan may have to be "reset" to restore light response. Turn off power at the source, not at the fan. Wait for a few minutes while you remove remote batteries and press all buttons to eliminate a "stuck key" problem. Reinstall batteries, then turn on power again. Try using the remote to turn on lights. If no luck, the remote may need new batteries or the receiver could be defective.

The motor hum could be caused by a broken capacitor connection or defective capacitor at the motor.

You probably need a new receiver. Call 1-888-830-1326 with the model # of the FAN and order a new one. Also, If the light is rated for 40 watts don't put in 60 watts.

Hunter ceiling fan remote will not turn off light it just dims the light


Try this. Remove power from the fan. Remove batteries from the remote. Press butttons on remote (might be stuck). Apply power to the fan. Install batteries in the remote and try all functions. If this doesn't work, the remote may be defective or the remote receiver may be defective. I can tell you from my own experience I have a ceiling fan that loses its mind whenever there is a power outage. Has to be reeducated from scratch

The problem is not your remote on the fan. It is the light kit. We have the same problem and our electrician diagnosed it as the light kit. This problem started just out of warranty, of course, and we are now purchasing a new light kit to fix the problem.

Howdy,

Is it possible this fan also has a pull chain switch for control of the light? If not, it sounds like the light board in the receiver has burned out, which is a fairly common issue. If the above does not work, call Hunter at 1-901-745-9222, a direct line to tech support. Be sure to have your fan model # ready as they will need it to get your correct receiver. If it's under a year old they should give you a replacement provided you can provide proof of purchase.

the remote does control the light. i think it's the bottom button, once to turn it on, again to turn it off. there should have been a blue wire connected in to the wires in the ceiling, this is power for the light. if only the white, black, and copper are connected, the light part won't work but the fan will (usually)

Light remote control stopped working


most of my fan controls have done this to me. you know the reciever is working cuz the fan works fine. you need to dis assemble the remote completely and clean the contacts for the light button. mine are two small black dots that seem to keep getting slimey and wont work till i clean them, then all works like brand new again.

good luck.

How to wire a remote control ceiling fan, without using remote.


If you don't want the to use the remote you don't have to, but you don't have enough wires to switch the upper light, the lower light, and the fan. You can, however, switch the upper and lower lights together if that's okay. In order to do that you'd connect the white from the ceiling box to the white (neutral) on the fan, then the green from the ceiling box to any green(ground) wires on the fan, then the black from the ceiling box to the black(motor) from the fan, then the red from the ceiling box to the blue and orange (lights) from the fan. I'm assuming that the black and red in the ceiling box are also in the switch box where the fan/light control switch is going. Those are the ones you'll connect to the controller.
