Hi Michael........more than likely the button on your remote has become worn through constant use and if you could take it apart but be carefully........and get to the circuit board you can take a alcohol swab and clean that button contact area .............if not a new remote may be in order.....please let me know

Thanks

Thanks . I tried it again just now and I can hear the motor on fan start humming when I push the button but fan won’t turn .

oh that's a different story ........how old and what make and model is the fan?

Ask Your Own Home Improvement Question
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Hunter Douglas and about 4 year old

do you smell a foreign odor when you turn on the fan?

Ask Your Own Home Improvement Question
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
We didn’t smell anything

can you give me more insight on what is happening?............what in your estimation has made it gone from working optimally?............are other devices on at the time?............does the fan slow down sporadically?........does the fan labor to start?..............have you had recent power outages?..........or you may have everything pointing to a now faulty motor.......even though it is only 4 years old...........since I am not there it makes it that much more difficult ......so if you can think of anything else

Thanks
