There are no pull chains.

OK, That says the receiver is in the body of the fan or in the section above the light kit. If you take a flashlight and look throughthe vents on top of the motor. you might see the receiver (crecent shaped plastic unit with wires in a molex plug. If not there, it is in the section of the fan above the light kit. Drop the light kit and check foa a electronic unit that would be connected with a molex plug. The units both the remote and the receiver are not serviceable units. Replacement is the only solution. The best way to check and replace if necessary is to send them to the vendor listed below for testing and replacement as necessary. I've dealt with them and find them to be repyuable.
