Hunter Ceiling Fan Light is Blinking - Voltage to the bulb reads 40-90 volts

Hi,

I have a Hunter fan where the light started blinking, I measured the wires going to the bulb and I noticed they read only 40-90 volts. I disassembled the fan trying to find the voltage regulator to by-pass it but I couldn't find it, I think it is part of the control unit.

Is it common that the voltage regulator is part of the control in a fan uint?

I just don't want to order the part to only find out that it didn't solve the problem.

FYI - The fan works fine, I tried it with the remote control and everything works find accept for the blinking issue.

Hunter Fan Co.
Part No: 85112-04

This is the part I'm thinking to buy: Buy Hampton-Bay UC7051G Up/Down and Reverse -UC7051G Ceiling Fan Receiver

85112-04-000 is the factory part number and is no longer available.
At least you got 10 good years of service from the fan.

The big problem here is that the speed control mechanism and all the speed control parts are on that remote. There is no direct drop-in replacement remote for that fan.

The Hampton Bay unit you linked to will absolutely not work there.

First of all thank you for your reply. So there is not really a fix for it (besides buying a new fan)?

No... and I'm actually surprised that Hunter just abandoned these fans like that..... with no replacement available. I've been reading hundreds of complaints and people looking for replacements.

Some people have tried reverse engineering the fan to get it to work with a newer receiver. That would be pretty difficult for us to help you with.
