How to program a Hunter Ceiling Fan Remote

Are you looking for instructions on how to program a Hunter ceiling fan remote? For the most part, programming requires that you “pair” the Hunter remote with the receiver. If you’ve ever had to pair a Bluetooth device before, like pairing your phone to your car, then you’re familiar with how this works. Once the two devices are “paired,” they communicate with each other and well – you’re done. It’s that easy! If the devices don’t pair, then you have a situation where either they are incompatible, or there is a problem with one of the devices. If the remote is brand new and won’t pair, chances are it’s your receiver. If this should happen, you’re better off purchasing a Hunter universal ceiling fan remote and receiver kit. When you buy one of these kits, the remote and the receiver are compatible because they’re bundled together.

The below diagram provides instructions on how to pair the Hunter remote with the receiver. There are generally three steps, as you can see below. The part numbers that these instruction work with are shown on the left hand side.
