Question about Oasis Hunter 54' Ceiling Fan
We installed a new ceiling fan with remote. Before we had a ceiling fan / light combo that was controlled on two light switches. One switch for the fan -- and one switch for the light.
Our ceiling wiring has one black - one white - and one copper (all three were connected to the old unit). We wired the white from ceiling to white on the receiver. Then the black from the ceiling to the black from the receiver. Green went to the copper one (ground). Then we wired the receiver to the fan according to the colors and the diagram.
Both switches are on. We can't get any power at all to come on now. We have checked and double checked the connections, etc. Could the problem be in the switch somehow?
My other thought was to wire the white and black wires from the receiver to just the one black from the ceiling (capping off the white from the ceiling) but I don't know if that is safe or not.
OK, first off, there have been some problems with those remote units. That said, let me tell you what the wires should be doing and you can see if that is happening.
Normally they take a "Hot Wire" and attach it to the white wire that goes to the switch. It is hooked through the switch to the black wire to bring the "Hot" back up to the light/fan. The whites in the ceiling box are the neutral. A "Hot" and a neutral are required to make anything work. The copper is a ground, or added safety. It usually is attached to the same spot as the neutral in the breaker box, so it is not a big deal. If you have a hot going to the switch which works as the off/on valve, and back up to the box. The hot and a neutral make what ever you hook it to work. Now, if you have a remote, it uses a connection at ceiling box to turn it on and off. You can have a switch to turn the whole thing off and on, but if that switch is on, the remote is just a different way to turn it off.
If you have a way for the electricity to make the big circle, it should work, unless a part some where is not letting it through. I imagine in your situation it is the remote.
If this is new, you may want to see if you can get another, and take the remote part out (Up in the fan) and replace it. You would not have to re-assemble the whole fan. I have replaced several of these lately, and even put a different kind of remote on a few.
