Question about Hunter Dryers
We bought a demonstrator fan that had no remote. We were given a universal remote that Lowe's said would work. The fan had it's own receiver in it already. The installer isn't sure how to hook up the new remote's receiver. Can we use the fan's current receiver with the new remote or do we have to wire in the new receiver, which the installer is unsure how to do?

The black goes to the L connection the others are a guess. You can do this two ways. Connect the colored wires in any sequence and then see what switch sequence give you high and lowest, the other one will be medium. Once you determine that, mark the wires with a piece of masking tape as high, medium and low. Otherwise you connect them, turn power on and use a multimeter to see which color gives you the highest voltage and which gives you lowest. Since you aren't comfortable using live wires and a meter, go with the first option and use the process of elimination to find the wires giving you the speeds you need to find the highest and lowest. Next, you need to determine how your switch sequence works. First pull has to give you highest speed. so you may end up wiring them in reverse if your first attempt is backwards. There is a reason the first pull needs to be highest, it powers up the motor so you can then chose a lower setting. A low setting first will over tax your motor and wear it out eventually as it has to work harder at first.
Let me know if you need further clarification and perhaps this is all you need to get fixed.
ps I checked on the Internet of a wiring diagram and I bet you did tok all to no avail.

your remote modual should have two or three wires coming from the unit on one side to go to the fixture and three on the other to hook it to power , the three should be to connect to the black (power), the white (Neutral) and green (ground), now the unit has power. The two or three coming from the other side should be a white and two other colors or two the same , black, red, or blue, The white connects to the fan white and the other two go to, one the fan and two the light. Any questions E-mail me...hwyhmmr hotmail

Your voltage is probably too low, probably a bad wire or source. Let me know if it worked.

One black wire on the switch hooked to the black sources wire. The other black wire on the switch hooked black up to the fan. The green on the switch wire goes to the bare wire. If there is bare wire you can use the white wire.

The green wire attaches to the dryer cabinet. There should be a green screw in the cabinet for attaching the wire. If not, you can always drill a hole for a ground screw.
The loose green wire you see is the reason the code was changed to a 4-wire cord.
