The remote came with the fan. It is handheld, although it can be snapped over the wall switch ( I think to prevent you from using the switch. I don't usually use the remote and did turn the light on at the switch - I rarely use the fan. I am not familiar with this unit but my friend said the remote had been acting funny.
It was purchased at Sam's - probably 4-5 years ago.
O.K. thanks. I think I'll just order a receiver as my HD/Lowes doesn't seem to carry any Hunter parts and the replacement remotes I've seen don't contain receivers. I believe I have the right part before me - it is round and came from above the fan motor housing and beneath the ceiling bracket. (Women are more visual...lol) Thanks for the help.
Yes..you threw me for a minute because there are 4 wires on the bottom (what would face the floor) but one is sealed off and the others are marked common, light, fan. Also,
Two on top and 4 dip switches. BTW, are these switches "set" by removing the plastic cover - on mine 3 are surrounded by plastic and 1 is not.
