After replacing the remote control unit on a ceiling fan, the fan spins at 50%

Hello folks,

This is my first post here, and I'm really glad I found this forum. I'm hoping someone could assist me with this. I'm not sure if it's something I did, or if it's a problem that I hadn't found or if the new part is bad or incorrect.

Old remote controlled Hunter fan. The remote would no longer make the fan turn on, but the light fixture in the fan works normally. Sent for a replacement unit from the manufacturer and proceeded to install it.

PROBLEM: after going through the process (not the best handyman in America here) I got the fan installed and all of it works EXCEPT that it's at half speed! I don't know what to do, and any help you can provide would be highly appreciated.

Welcome to the forums.

it works EXCEPT that it's at half speed!
Doesn't the remote have variable or multiple speed settings ?
What happens when you try to change fan speed ?
Does the fan have a pull chain and is it on high ?

Thanks PJ,
So yes, the remote does have 3 speeds, and all three speeds are at about 50% from where they were before replacing the remote control unit. And there is no chain on this fan at all. Only the remote control.

Did they send you the remove with many wires or the remote with just black and white in - and red, blue and white out ?
