The remote is the most used and replaced ceiling fan part, no matter which brand or model of the ceiling fan you have. If you are looking for a replacement Hunter ceiling fan remote, you will be able to find a replacement remote on our website. You need to consider two options when it comes to buying a replacement remote. The first thing is to see the details of the remote to find out whether it is compatible with your fan or not or what fans can be compatible with it.

Check the ceiling fan dip switches
The receiver and the dip switches for the remote should be synced to communicate easily. To find the dip switches, you need to remove the battery cover available on the remote and you will be able to see them under the battery cover. The dip switches are also available on the remote receiver too. To communicate them together, they have to be aligned. With the help of infrared frequency, the remote is able to respond to the remote and the receiver. If the switches are different, the remote will not be able to communicate with the receiver. Having said that, it hardly happens that the dip switches have changed inside the receiver of the unit. The only thing that can lead to this includes the falling down of the fan if it is hit, or gets damaged. Another explanation of this can be when the dip switches were jostled or one moved in the remote when it was dropped. Or the kids may cause it by opening it and messing up with the dip switches. You need to access the manual that you got with the package of Hunter fan to know the default settings of the dip switches. If this is not working you can also contact customer service of Hunter or get a remote replacement.
