Complaint / review text:
Hunter ceiling fan remote receiver modules are pieces of crap and dangerous! We bought a brand new house that had 3 Hunter fans, 2 of which had remote controls on them. The 1st electronic remote module went bad after about 6 months of light use and neither the light or fan would come on. I called them and they sent a "free" replacement which went bad after 1 month. The 2nd fan remote module went bad and let the smoke out, smelling the living room up bad. It was just out of it's 1 year warranty.
I am an electronic tech and decided to troubleshoot the bad modules. They have a blown Thyristors (BTA08) which only cost about $1 to buy. The modules are not designed correctly for these to keep on blowing. To buy a new module is over $60. I do not trust these modules anymore and took down both fans and bought new ones with pull chains which cost me about $350, with me doing the work. Hunter should be held accountable for their junk which is costing people lots of money! My personal opinion is that Hunter!
