Question about Hunter 52" Ceiling Fan With Light And Remote Control

1 Answer

Electrical box not working

I tried to hook up my new ceiling fan.  previously had a dome light.  hooked everything up correctly but I didn't put electrical tape on one of the wires (because I was just testing it out... stupid).  the hot wire hit the metal ceiling fan box and sparked. now the wire doesn't work.  tried hooking up the old dome light and nothing. the circuit breaker is working properly.  Light is on two light switches, a dimmer and a regular switch.  i have i hooked up to a extension cord right now so please help.

Unfortunately it sounds like the main electic wire is shorted out. Not the one to your fan, but the one that provides the power supply FOR the fan. The only way i know to fix this is to get an electrician. I am certain the wire needs replacing.

The previous owners never hooked up the lights on the ceiling fan, how do I do this?


there should be another wire coming thru the fan housing that has to be hooked up to power. Are you sure that it is not hooked up and not just turned off by the pull chain??

Minka F719 Lavery Wired fan and fan works but light does not come


The light leg should be hooked to a power source. If you have a separate wire from a wall switch, that's where it should be hooked. Otherwise, you can hook it to the fan leg and operate the light from the switch on the fan.

Need a basic diagram to wire a ceiling fan.


Depending on how your place is wired will dictate the solution here.

The light box in your ceiling should have two or three wires. Black and White, or Red, Black and White.

If you have two wires (one switch to control everything):
Black is power - hook this to the fan's power wire (and the fan's light wire if applicable)
White is neutral - hook this to the fan's neutral wire.

If you have three wires (two separate switches):
Red is power for the light - hook this to the fan's light wire if applicable
Black is for the fan - hook this to the fan's motor
White is neutral - hook this to the fan's neutral wire.

Remote is not working and fan won't turn on


Take the fan down. Remove the blades, by pass everything, by cros wiring the fan using a plug in to see if the motor is working. If it works then you have a defective remote.

Lights don't work


Don't know if I can solve it, but it is a Home Depot private lable. Try googling it and see if you can get some info. I suspect that you either hooked it up wrong, or it has damaged contacts.

I am having difficulty wiring my hunter ceiling fan


For the fan alone, you hook the black wire from the fan to the black wire in your electrical box; white to white. If there is a red wire it's for the light, hook it to the black wire from the box. If you let us know what wires are available in your box and what's coming out of the fan and whether the fan has a light and whether the box is wired for separate lighting, we could go a long way towards solving your problem in more definitive terms. Hunter is a premium fan, their package directions are good.

Hampton Bay Model 73554 Ceiling Fan


Its not hooked up right.
Black is hot , Black to Black always.
green is ground , usually the green grounds to the mounting screws without any connections needed.
the rest are variable
you can have only 1 or 2 extra wires left.
one to fan , one to lights,
either way they go to white (neutral)
Do you have a dual wall switch with lights and fan or are you using the remote?
How many wires and what color are they that comes out of the ceiling box?
