Original Hunter parts are best for repairing Hunter ceiling fans because all original and replacement parts are covered under warranty. Installing parts made by other manufacturers voids the original lifetime motor warranty offered on all Hunter ceiling fans.
Hunter fans offer a lifetime motor warranty for the original owner. While this warranty does not transfer to the new owner of a home in which the fan is installed, it does cover the cost of repairs or replacement when a proof of purchase is provided. All other Hunter fan parts that fail due to a mechanical malfunction are covered for one year after the date of purchase.
Unlike parts from any other manufacturer, Hunter parts are made specifically for Hunter fans, so the replacement parts are guaranteed to work. Hunter replacement parts also come with a 90-day warranty, so not only is the original fan covered, but the replacement parts are covered when replaced according to the warranty requirements.
Installing parts not manufactured by Hunter into a Hunter fan voids the original lifetime motor warranty. Always maintain ceiling fans properly and use authorized Hunter repair professionals to keep the warranty valid. Bad repairs, damage to the unit, modifications and incorrect installation practices void the warranty.
