    Dumb Default

    I agree with others on the default for the switch. You would think the fan would resume the last settings when the wall switch is turned on. Instead, it the lights and the fan speed default to OFF. You must fumble across the room in the dark to find the remote. I am considering removing the remote from the fan and direct wiring it. I would lose the remote function, but at least it would make use when I'm using it. I bought a Hunter wall remote, but that requires removing the existing remote receiver in the canopy and replacing it with the one that came with the wall switch. If I'm doing all of that, I might as well take the fan back.

    Worst product ever! If you have a remote you cant control your lights with the wall switch. If you leave the remote on your bed stand you have to walk through the room in the dark to turn on lights with the remote. This is dangerous and down right stupid. I called twice to get problem solved and was told that was how they are designed now. My old hunter fan with remote works with both the wall switch and remote. Get it together Hunter! You have lost a customer.

    Could be better...

    I share the same frustration as others. It would be nice to be able to turn the light back on with the wall switch after turning the light off with the wall switch. Instead, after turning the light off with the wall switch (which also turns the fan off) you have to use the remote to turn the light and fan on after turning the wall switch back on. I wish the bone-heads would have just installed the proper wiring in the first place so I wouldn't have to horse around with this remote stuff...The remote switch does work as advertised, so I give it 5 stars.

    Any way of changing the default?

    Hi All, I agree whole-heartedly that the default setting to stay off after the wall switch has been turned off over an extended period of time is quite frustrating. Is there a way to change that setting? Can a new receiver and remote be purchased? I love the fan but I want to control the light from the wall every time and use the remote while in bed. Appreciate any suggestions (sorry it's months after the last post but I was estatic to find this forum).

    Agree this doesn't work logically w/ wall switch

    "JM" reports that this remote/receiver don't work logically with wall switch. Turning off the power at the wall switch causes the remote/receiver to default to "off" when switch is flipped back on. When you expect to use a wall switch to turn on a ceiling light, this is a big problem. At this point, I wish I hadn't even connected up the receivers and could just use the pull chains, but it's too late for that. I have another fan (different manuf.) where the remote/receiver remember the most recent settings.

    Doesn't work logically with a wall switch

    If you plan on using this remote with a wall switch, when the wall switch is turned off, and then back on, the remote defaults back to 'off' position, therefore, you will need to hunt down the remote in the dark to turn the lights back on, as opposed to the remote maintaining the settings at the time the wall switch was turned off. My other, more expensive, remotes DO remember the last setting when the wall switch is turned off making the wall switch useful. In summary, this unit is fine if you plan on NOT using a wall switch with it.

    Good Simple Remote

    It's a good remote. I've use one before. I'd recommend changing the code right away because my neighbor had the same remote. I was actually looking for the wiring instructions on here, I guess they don't put those PDF's on-line though.

    Remote required for all operation.

    The remote that came with my Cedonia Ceiling Fan is very basic (Fan and Light OFF/ON). If the wall switch is turned off and then back on the Fan and Light settings return to OFF and you need the remote control to get both the Fan or Light to come back on. Being that the remote doesn't come with a wall mount, it often gets lost thus making it impossible to use the fan.

    Great in concept, but poor execution

    Great idea, great price, but has problems. First big one: the default position of the switch is off. Thus if you turn the light switch off and come back, you have to find the remote to get the light or fan to come back on. The default should have been on so that the temporary misplacement of the remote didn't leave the whole thing useless. Second and perhaps dangerous: the wires for fan and light don't match the remote: i.e. the fan switch powers the light and vice versa (and no, I double checked the wiring - even the instruction sheet shows the switches in the reverse position). This may be dangerous if the relays inside, which are rated for 300W (light) and 1.0 amp (fan) are somehow reversed as we

    Turns on randomly

    Purchase 2 for my kids rooms, 2 months apart. Problems: 1. One unit came with a battery. 2nd didn't. Had to make a trip back to HW store to get battery. 2. Both units randomly turn on in the middle of the night. First thought it was just because they were rolling over on the remote. Turns out that even when I took the battery out of the remote, lights continued to turn on. 3. Does not have bracket / wall hanger for the remote.
