Complaint / review text:
After remodeling our home in 2008, we installed 2 Hunter ceiling fans. We bought Hunter because we thought this was a reputable company, with quality product. Wrong! We have model #23683 which are fans, with light and a remote. Both of them worked fine for about 6 months. The problem was the light could not be controlled using the remote, and bulbs only last 1 month.
I ordered a replacement "receiver", which took 2 months to get because the part was on back order (that told me lots of others where have the same problems). The second receiver lasted about 1 year at the most, and once again we encountered lots of problems afterwards. We could not run the fan without the light on. We could not control the light functions at all. My second Hunter fan started, randomly, turning on and off, which hunter said was "interference", and I should change the remote code, which we did, with no resolution. The light just kept turning on and off, so we replaced the receiver in that unit, after we checked all wiring, and connections etc.
Both fans are again, having the same issues. I contacted Hunter, and they are sending two new receivers. They did try to charge me for them, and had I not told them these fans have a lifetime warranty, they would have charged me $35.99 shipping for each. From all the complaints I have read about Hunter fans, I think I should not waste my time, or safety trying to repair these, and just buy new ones! By the way, I have a White Westinghouse ceiling fan, with a remote, that has worked perfectly for 7 years. I cannot and will not recommend Hunter!
