Customer Questions & Answers

Does the Hunter remote control for ceiling fans control fan speed as well as on/off?

Asked by: Anonymous
No, it will only turn the fan on and off. You'll need to use your fan's pull string to adjust the speed.

can I add the Hunter remote to a non-Hunter, non-remote ceiling light/fan?

I'd like to basically use the remote as a switch for a non-remote fan/light I just purchased.
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes you can, but I wouldn't recommend this brand for any fan - hunter brand or otherwise. It is known to spontaneously turn on the fan light and fan in the middle of the night. I'm going to buy new other brand remotes today and replace all four of mine - what a pain. I've also changed the frequency code on the remote and nothing resolves it.

Is there a wall mount holder for model 27157? Since it basically serves as an on/off switch. Also the light switch cannot operate the fan/light?

Asked by: Anonymous
I haven't been able to find a holder for this remote. I bought a plastic toothbrush holder shaped like 1/2 a cup that hangs on the wall to hold it by the switch. I don't know what you mean by the light switch - the one on the wall or the one on the remote? I didn't bother wiring my fan into the wall switch, but the light switch on the remote works - if yours does not, you may have miswired the fan when you installed the remote.

how do you install this remote? Does this work with all hunter fans?

Asked by: Anonymous
You have to take the fan totally apart (if it's a Hunter) in my experience just to install the remote (or change the code settings) which is a total pain. If you plan to use this remote with a new fan you haven't yet installed, do it at the same time you install the fan. It works with SOME Hunter models. When I had problems with my remote turning the light/fan on in the middle of the night I reviewed my remote manual - it specifically said not to use this remote with Hunter original models as well as a few others- check this before buying.

Basic On and Off Ceiling Fan Remote Control-DISCONTINUED is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what it's supposed to I rewired a switched receptacle to an overhead box in a bedroom, then installed a lighted ceiling fan. The switch box is a 2 wire and I didn't want to pull a 3-wire cable, but also wanted to operate the fan and lights without having to use the pull chain switches on the fan body. A remote seemed like a good idea. I looked at a few different remotes and chose this one because it had the smallest receiver. If you have ever installed a ceiling fan, you'll know that they don't leave much room, and even this one won't fit into a 4" ceiling box. The installation is very straightforward, with all the wires being clearly marked. Pay close attention to the dip switch/jumper settings, especially if you have other remote devices in your house (Point the new remote at them and make sure it doesn't operate any of them. If it does, change the receiver dip switches and the remote jumper settings). Once it's installed, the only way to change the switch settings is to disassemble the whole fan, then take out the receiver. The hardest part of the installation is fitting the entire package into the fan's internal mounting section without pinching wires (it's OK to cut off excess wire, just be sure to leave about 6" to work with). I finally had to use a wire tie around the top of where the fan mounts to the ceiling box. Two notes: First, the remote does not come with a battery. It requires a 12 volt A23. That information may be in the fine print someplace, but I couldn't find it. Second, you don't have a choice between operating the fan/lights between the remote and the wall switch. After installing the remote, the wall switch does nothing but supply power. The fan and/or lights are only operated with the remote.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent remote for the price Bought this for use with a newly installed 52" Gazebo II fan/light kit. Pretty straightforward installation. It has worked just fine; would be nice if it could control the fan speed, but overall, no complaints here.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I bought this for our bedroom and i installed it, the next morning I woke up realizing the fan is on, i was surprised, i turned the fan off thinking i had accidentally hit the remote button. 20 minutes later I the light went on by itself. and i waited a little bit longer and saw that it randomly turns the light or fan ob by itself. i had to return this product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from OK product, horrible instructions. Once I realized I had to connect this thing according to the diagram and not the wiring labels (which are mislabled in the instructions AND on the wires), I still had to reinstall it so the antenna is pointing down (instead of pushed up into the attic per the instructions). Finally works but it was way more trouble than it should've been. I would only recommend this if I'm able to explain how it SHOULD be installed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from stopped working in few hours It was easy to install, direction were clear. After installing and testing, I stepped out. After couple of hours when I came back and tried to turn on light with the remote, it didn't work. I tried the fan and same. Tried few things - turned off light from the switch, turned off mains, but still didn't work. Then I disconnected the receiver and re-connected all wiring. Tried different jumper settings - and finally returned it to HomeDepot.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy this remote unless you want it to wake you at 3am! I have 4 ceiling fans wired with this remote. All spontaneously turn themselves on (never off) in the middle of the night randomly. I'm changed the remote antenna codes multiple times (which involves basically taking the entire fan apart) and nothing resolves the problem. This is Hunter's only recommendation to solve the problem. After searching the web for possible solutions I found TONS of customer complaints with the exact same problem. I will never buy another Hunter product again. Apparently this also happens with Hunter remotes that come with their fans as well as this model.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of time and money Fan and lights turn on and off by themselves all the time, I've tried multiple different codes and now it won't work at all. Called Tech Support- they claim defective receiver. I have 2 that do the same thing though! Returning to Home Depot today and picking up a quality product. I am surprised the Hunter name is on this piece of junk!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do Not Buy This Remote I have used the Hampton and now this Hunter. The Hampton type allow you to switch the light on and off at the wall. When the light is on ( or fan ) you can then use the remote. This Hunter unit is Basic but when the light is on and you use the wall switch the light goes off but cannot be switched back on without the remote. The relay needs power to hold it's state. This is a pain. Spend the extra $10 to buy the Hampton and it will work as a remote and still retain wall switch function.
