The Hunter fan company is one of the most popular ceiling fan brands along with Hampton Bay and Harbor Breeze. They have many ceiling fans for sale and a few different remotes. The 27185-060 model ceiling fan remote control here comes as a set with a receiver that needs to be installed and hooked up to the ceiling fan unit. The frequency is on 350 MHz and there are 4 dip switches that help identify different setups if you have a few ceiling fans in the house.
The operation of this Hunter ceiling fan remote is very simple and straight forward. The round button is the on/off for the light and the buttons above are fan speed control. There are 4 buttons. The bottom most one is the fan off button. The next buttons up get larger and correspond to the fan speeds from slow to medium and to fast. The remote works on a 9 volt battery and fits nicely in your hand. It also comes with a mount that can be installed over your existing light switch cover so that it can be placed in the same place all the time and have a home. Also, since it’s also a light switch control, it makes sense to have it stored there. But, it can be transported to a bedside table, sofa or where ever is in arm’s reach for maximum convenience.
The installation of the ceiling fan remote receiver unit is definitely harder than operating the remote itself, but not too hard if you’re a DIY type. Basically, the box goes in between the power wires that connect the ceiling fan to the electrical power of the house. If you’re not comfortable with the install instructions, then finding an electrician or handy man is a good idea. The fan needs to be disconnected from the base that is attached to the ceiling. Then, there’s usually a hook that the main body can hang from, so that you can work. Basically, it’s a matter of disconnecting the existing wiring, inserting the receiver box in the middle and reconnecting the wires to and from the fan and house power.
After finishing the installation, your Hunter ceiling fan should be able to be controlled by the remote from comfortable distances. Once everything gets up and running, just make sure your battery has charge and you’ll enjoy continued remote controlling of your room ceiling fan. Like any other ceiling fan parts, you can order these devices from the Hunter Fan company.
A remote control ceiling fan is definitely the way to go if you have to choose. Pulling the chain on the fan can be inconvenient and cumbersome. Some units are sold with the receiver integrated and provide a remote control with the fan. However, if you have an existing fan, this additional purchase is worth the price.
A ceiling fan with remote isn’t without its problems, though. Like all electronics, problems can occur like circuitry frying or short circuiting due to power surges or power outages. From reading different ceiling fan reviews online, these problems are definitely a possibility. Different brands like Hampton Bay ceiling fans or Harbor Breeze will have differing policies when it comes to repair, replacement and service of their products, including universal ceiling fan remote parts.
If you’re searching for a way to easily adjust the speed of your Hunter ceiling fans and turn on/off the ceiling fan light, check out a Hunter ceiling fan remote control.
