Smoke care from the wiring between fan and light

My 52 inch fan has been installed and working fine for over a year when smoke began coming from the box between the light and the fan. I disconnected it and saw that the (plastic) capacitor was beginning to melt. I removed the capacitor and the nearby electrical supply store does not carry anything like it. Because the plastic has begun to melt I cannot read the identication on the capacitor except fot something that looks like: 3 @ FU; Red, Yellow and purple ; 250AC; /60HZ C+- 5% and max temp 70(degrees) C If you can direct me as to how I may buy a new capacitor will it be okay and safe to just repalce it and put the unit back together and try to run it again?

Might need a new receiver.Did you hook up the receiver hot. If your fan came with pull chains,undo your light wire from the fan and wire nut it to house hot.This will tell you if your light is OK or if it is the receiver.

My control won't activate the light on my Hunter fan. The light comes on via pull chain fine, and the control works the 3 speeds on the fan, but the light won't respond.


Check the wiring on your receiver to make sure the light wire is connected.You have to have the light on with the pull chain and then use the remote to turn it on/off.

Our Hunter Fan and Light with remote has been installed for over 1 year. It has always had the 'ghost' problem where it will randomly turn itself on or off but we have been able to live with that. Last...


Your ghost problem was probably due to a loose connection. The wire has probably come completely loose or the heat from the loose connection has damaged the relay.
