Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Im changing out a ceiling fan.

Im having trouble with the wiring, the one im installing has the remote box on top and my old fan doesn't have the remote feature. I have three wires {black,blue,white} coming out of the ceiling, and only two wires {black,white} coming out of the top of the newer fan. I have the remote box all connected. But now I have hit a wall and its getting close to the time for my wife to get home. Please help me.

Hook black to black white to white and the blue is a ground wire that you hook to the metal bracket that holds fan in cealing ( anywhere is fine just loosen a screw and place the wire anywhere!

Hunter ceiling fan remote will not turn off light it just dims the light


Try this. Remove power from the fan. Remove batteries from the remote. Press butttons on remote (might be stuck). Apply power to the fan. Install batteries in the remote and try all functions. If this doesn't work, the remote may be defective or the remote receiver may be defective. I can tell you from my own experience I have a ceiling fan that loses its mind whenever there is a power outage. Has to be reeducated from scratch

Im installing a remote to Hunter fan w/light. A White n Black coming from fan, Remote has Red,Black,White n Black n White to go to ceiling.Where do the red,black n white from remote go to on the fan? Thank...


Black goes to the black on the fan white goes to the white on the fan and the red will go to the blue wire on the fan for lights. Now if you have a black wire with a white stripe on it from the fan that is the light wire.

Im installing a hunter remote control receiver in the ceiling mount. I have a red, black, white and ground wire from the ceiling. Which wire on the reciever do I connect the red wire to?


The red wire in the ceiling is probably used in a shared neutral circuit and not needed for the fan. If it's not capped off already, it should be.

Just use black, white and ground from the ceiling.

Fan remote does not work. thought it might be the battery. not !


By the sound of it, it could be a wiring issue. Im assuming its hardwired to the house. If you feel comfortable enough, i would suggest checking the connection to the fan motor a long with the connections to the lights.(The bulbs might just be burned out too) If that looks okay. You said the remote wasnt working. Im assuming you have an alternate method of operating the fan, perhaps a typical "light" switch. Once again if you feel comfortable you could test that switch, it may be bad.

Bottom line, if you dont feel comfortable messing with electricity as many do, Call an electrician out. The fans can get expensive and it seems pretty new still. They can diaginose it for you relatively cheap.

Ceiling fan is controlled by dimmer


Yes, if the hot wire going up to the fan is coming off the dimmer, it is reduced voltage and will slow down. There maybe a separate hot from another switch??

Ceiling fan and light wiring, 2 switches, 1 romexHunt


If you have only one black and one white in the ceiling to connect the fan / light to , then you have only one switch for this ceiling box. The fan / light will connect the white wires together and then the two colored wires on the fan to the black ceiling wire. In order to use separate switches for the fan and the lighht a 4 wire cable must go from the switches to the light so you have a red and black wire to switch the two separately .

Wireless ceiling fan


there are remote controlled fan out on the market.

there are also devices the make it remote, but the cord is for power so i dont think you can hide the wires to much without going thru the ceiling.

if you have no access of the cieling then the wire must be there for powering of the fan run along the wall, try stapling the wire to the cieling like around the egdes of the ceiling then perhap painting the wire the same color of the ceiling.

you do not have much option to work with.

you have to make sure you buy the right remote controll

but it still need power.

there a site for remote controls for fan or just buy a new fan all together. im sure they put the plug there for a reason because if you use the fan alot they do go bad.

Good luck

Remote control


in the remote and the fan the little blue box is called a dip switch
you will have to open fans base to access the remote power sender
on both the fan and remote the dip switches have to match in order for the remote to work the fan properly
or your signal will never make it to remote box

Installing ceiling fan with two switches AND a remote


in your ceiling box should be three wires. a red goes to the three way switches, a black goes to the hot and the white is the neutral. the fan wires are black, blue and white. since you have a remote, connect the [fan] blue & black together with the [line] black. connect all white wires together. the remote will now ramp up your lights from off to full on and the fan remote will let you choose lo med high and off. just tape up the red wire in the box.
