Important Installation Notes
1. Receiver Unit – If you are planning to replace an existing Hunter remote you will need to fit the Powerboat receiver into the canopy for this to work. There is a standard slot in the ceiling fan canopy for the receiver to go into which is always a tight fit due to limited space and to avoid any vibration from the fan to cause rattling. The handset on it’s own is not compatible with and will not work a Hunter fan receiver.
2. Snap Connectors – The receiver in this pack has the standard Hunter 4-wire electrical snap connector blocks for quick and easy fitting – see image. Ensure that the wires line up according to their colour. This receiver can be used on other makes of AC fan but the fitted blocks will need to be cut off and any good connector blocks used instead. Note that there is no black/white wire from the fan canopy in to the receiver as that is there for the wall control signal only and is not used here since the control signal goes via RF direct to the receiver.
3. Troubleshooting – If your existing remote control no longer works then try replacing the battery first and that the blue light works when pressing the buttons. Then check that you have power going to the receiver unit and when turned on by the remote power coming out of it. If not then the receiver is blown or failed and needs replacing. If it does then there is a problem most likely with the start control capacitors and wire harness or very rarely the motor itself – please contact our office for advice and replacement spares.
4. RF Channel Problems – If the receiver is a new installation then check that the dip-switches on the remote handset match those on the receiver. If you are using other RF remotes in the same room then they might activate the ceiling fan if they are on the same channel. If so then use the dip-switches to select another channel.
5. Reverse Switch – Do not use the slide-switch to put the motor in reverse while the receiver is on as this will damage it.
6. Lamp Flickering/Dimmable Bulbs – If you experience this or a flash when switched off it indicates that you have a non-dimmable OR a cheap Chinese brand bulb installed. Remove and replace with a dimmable one from a reputable brand to avoid damaging the bulb. If you are NOT using a dimmable bulb then the relevant dip-switch must be set to off.
