I am trying to install a Hunter universal fan and light remote onto a ceiling fan with no external controls. The fan is already installed and working and the fan and light are both on one switch, only on and off. The house wires are only black, white and green. I know that black is hot, white is neutral, and green is ground. the fan has the black, the white, and the green but also has a blue, which I currently have connected with the black. Now the receiver for the remote has the balck and white to go to the house wiring (as it works likes a splice between house and fan) and black, white, and red... how do i put this together
Re: installing a universal remote on a ceiling fan.
Your remote modual should have two or three wires coming from the unit on one side to go to the fixture and three on the other to hook it to power , the three should be to connect to the black (power), the white (Neutral) and green (ground), now the unit has power. The two or three coming from the other side should be a white and two other colors or two the same , black, red, or blue, The white connects to the fan white and the other two go to, one the fan and two the light. Any questions E-mail me...hwyhmmr hotmail

In my new house, there's 2 switches so I can do them separately. ... is there anything else I can do with that switch since the fan has a remote and I won't be using it much? TIA. .... Those same wires should be in that switch box.
Oct 3, 2007 - I can have installed the fan/light (a Hampton Bay Veranda) without the ...My house wiring has a green ground and two black and two white wires. ... Fortunately I found a universal/all brand fan speed control wall switch made by Hunter. ... i havethe same problem . so you just did not used your remote?
The fan remote control receiver used in the Hunter 25730 model fan (see picture) is not available from Hunter. Remove the fan from the ceiling. Remove the receiver and take it to recycling. It can be replaced using a readily available and inexpensive replacement universal remote and receiver controller. There are limitations though. The Hunter receiver provided fan reversing functions. The universal controllers do not. You therefore have two options.
Option 1: The universal receiver can be installed such that the fan direction is fixed, either up or down, all other functions operate normally.
Option 2: A reversing switch can be purchased from Radio Shack for about $4 and installed in the fan. This does require cutting a square hole and drilling two bolt or rivet holes in the side of the cylindrical housing which previously housed the Hunter receiver. I'd suggest the Radio Shack DPDT slide switch part number 275-403.
Refer to the wiring diagrams and connector pinout diagram for connections. Please note that the connector pinout diagram is the connector that is soldered to the circuit board as shown in the photo of the Hunter receiver. If your motor wire colors are different then with the connector unplugged from the receiver use a multimeter to probe all the motor wires in order to identify two pairs of wires that indicate approximately 70 ohms each pair. These will be the motor windings.
