Question about Hunter 27185 Remote Control

1 Answer

I have a Hunter 27185 remote control that has a red lead from the receiver marked "light" , a black lead marked "fan" and a white common lead. The Hunter fan has a black, white and a black/white lead coming from the motor housing. The instructions for the fan do not say exactly what each wire's function is. Common sense says the black lead goes with the black wire, the white lead goes to the white wire....... does the red lead from the remote control go to the black/white wire from the fan motor housing to control the light?

    We have the same problem. The fan works fine but we can't get the light to work at all.

I have a ceiling light that does not have a switch anywhere. Can a hunter 27185 remote control be used to control the ceiling light fixture only. There is no fan in this scenario. How should it be wired?...


Connect the lamp output wire of the receiver to the hot wire of the fixture, and the incoming hot wire to the hot input of the receiver. Be sure to insulate the fan output wire(s) so nothing nasty happens if someone presses the fan on button.

Check the remote control manual to see if you can use compact fluorescent bulbs. You probably cannot if this is a dimming lamp control; most CF bulbs flicker wildly if used with dimmers, and will not last long.

You can also buy remote lamp-only switches.

Wiring instructions are terrible. Ceiling wires = Red, Black, White, Copper. Fan wires = Black, White, Copper. Remote wires = Neutral in(Black), Live In(Black), Light out(White), Fan out(White),...


That is dificult to follow .. here is the usual wiring plan for ceiling fans .. green to green or bare and mounting bracket ... ceiling black and red are live from the switches, fan and light.with a remote you really only need one of these , so cap off the red and use the black as your input to the remote .. the neutral to the remote should be the white .. there are only 3 wires from the fan so I am assuming that there is no light , or the light will be activated from the remote .. the black for the fan and the black for the lights connect to marked wires on the remote. .. lights out, fan out

or looking at your description .. ((Remote wires = Neutral in(Black) white ceiling wire, Live In(Black) blaxck ceiling wire, Light out(White) blue Fan/Light wire, Fan out(White) black fan/light wire, Common(White) white ceiling and white fan/light wires.

I tried to change the remote codes on the fan and remote so it would stop turning on and off the fan in the other room but I can't get it to work.


When I changed the dip switches on the Hunter receiver, I noticed that the remote would not work when set to the new code. When I set it back to the previous code, it would work, leading me to determine that the receiver has some basic memory. The solution was to simply cut the power to the fan at the circuit breaker box and the new dip switch settings now work.

This was not described anywhere in the manual of the Hunter fan I purchased, so a slight oversight by the manufacturer.

Can't control light at switch


It is wired so that you control the light with the remote. You cannot have it both ways. You either control it with the wall switch or the remote. Once you kill the power to the receiver by turning off power at the wall switch, you are only applying power to the receiver when you turn power back on. You are not supplying power to the light. You then must turn on the light with the remote. This is the purpose of a remote fan/light control. You could rewire it to control the light with the switch and only control the fan with the remote if you wish, but as you have it now, it is working correctly.

make sure that you wire BOTH the black and black & white striped wires together to the supply, or the light won't work.

Hunter Remote Control # 27185


Do not use the factory default position in either fan. Double check the dip switches, and make sure they are the same for each individual receiver and remote.Different codes for each. Dip switches are the oppsite direction in the remote for some reason?
