Replacement switches for Hunter fans can be purchased online through specialty parts retailers such as eReplacementParts.com, home improvement stores such as Lowe's, and auction sites such as eBay. The Hunter website also contains a search tool that allows users to find specific parts and licensed sellers in a specific locale.
In order to view replacement switches for Hunter fans on the eReplacementParts website, the user must first select the specific model of fan. As some parts are only compatible with certain models, using a part that is not compatible can lead to decreased performance or safety hazards such as electrical fires or equipment malfunction. The main page for each model contains a diagram of the unit, with clearly labeled cross sections that list each part in the fan. Listings for parts on the site feature a picture of the unit along with a description of its purpose and features.
The Hunter website also requires users to enter a fan's product number in order to search for parts. This number is typically found on a tag attached to the fan or on the label near the fan motor. Once the user enters the fan's model number, the site displays a list of available parts and documentation.
