Question about Hunter Ceiling Fan Light Switch Control

Open Question

My fan light stopped working. Its a hunter with a 3 way wall switch for light, fan, reverse and power. I wanted to see if power was getting to the light so I tested the wiring and it was showing power. I decided to change the light receptacle since power was there yet no light. To my surprise whenever I attach a new light receptacle from 60w down to calabra fixture the power to the light stops. Is there a shutoff somewhere in the fan. If I start the fan and shut off the power to the light it resets and then shows a live wire until I add any fixtures? Any ideas what is wrong???

SOURCE: Wiring Hunter ceiling fan into old house. My house

Your copper, green wire are the ground. I beleave that the white is the power, and the black is your neg. to make sure i would use a wire tester to determen the power. From there white goes to white, black to black, and green to copper. I am not sure on the white/black wire it maybe another power. Look at your instalation manual it should tell you.
Hope this can help.

Hunter Ceiling fan remote will only work for the light. It will not work for the fan. I have paired it.


  • Disconnect power at the source
  • Remove batteries from the remote and press buttons to be sure none are stuck. Reinstall batteries
  • Reconnect power and test operation
If you are using wall switches in addition to the remote, decide how you want to control fan and lights and don't confuse things.

Minka Aire model f603 reverse switch?


Not sure what model of fan or manufacture you have. Says Hunter 52" & Minka aire F603. If it's the Minka , Then push the button on the lower part of the remote (6 o'clock). If that doesn't work then you might need a new receiver.

Both the fan and the light stop working. What are the first things to try?


Good way of asking for help!-- Thank you!

First make sure the circuit is not tripped at the Circuit Breaker--
(Are other lights on the same circuit still working OK?)

You will need to verify which breaker controls the voltage to this fan--
and you will need to turn the breaker OFF, while dismantling the fixtures.

Can you communicate with someone at the Breaker Box, while you work safely?
Have them turn the circuit on when you are safe and ready -- and reading voltage, etc.

Next-- Do you have a dimmer switch, (or just a wall switch) on the wall?
Do you know if the power is supplied to the ceiling, thru that wall switch?
If so, check to see if the dimmer or the switch has power coming in and out at the wall, and heading up the ceiling supply wire.

If the power is supplied at the ceiling, then you are going to have to get a safe ladder, and remember Ladder safety rules!

The tough part, is getting the heavy fan and light assembly safely down, where you can make some voltage readings at the supply circuit wires at the ceiling--

Maybe you have found a loose wire nut by now?
Or maybe a defective dimmer or wall switch?

Or what are you observing at the junction box, and the fan motor now?

Tell us more-- and we'll see if we can help yo to the next step.

I have a Hunter ceiling fan with light kit. The controls for the fan and light are on the wall. It is a Hunter dimmer and 3 speed control switch. The fan works fine and the lights do not come on. I have...


Usually you have to press the light switch 3 times and hold to get dim effect adjustments, it is often radio transmitted in some newer models, if the pull switch is bad replace it anyways it could be dangerous if let alone!

Hunter ceiling fan-just installed -possible speed control problem


Sounds like the fan is defective. All internal wiring from the switch to the motor is factory installed. The fan has power going to it. Just to make sure, double check the wiring from the ceiling fixture to the fan.
Problem could be a faulty switch on the fan or faulty motor(bad winding for med. speed). Try reverse switch on the fan to operate the opposite direction and see if medium speed works. If medium does work in opposite direction, it pretty much points to a defective fan. In any case, unless you discover that the ceiling wires were reversed going into the fan, I'd say new fan to the returns dept.

Fan with remote won't work with wall switch. I


I just recently purchased a hunter ceiling fan w/light and remote. Had it installed and wall switch would not work, only remote. I contacted Hunter company directly about this problem and I was told that they redesigned their fans with remotes so that only the remote works for turning off power to fan. The person who made that made that BRILLIANT change should be fired. So to those of you who own a newer hunter an product with a remote ne your wall switch will not work tat s te reason why.

Lights are on all the time, fan doesnt work, remote does not work


I have changed the remotes on 5 Hunter fans in the last 3 months. They have a problem with how some of them mount, that makes them drop down and vibrate loose. If you do not have a wall switch for it, you may want to go to pull chains, or just replace the remote. It is NOT the controller you hold in your hand, but the part in the fan. (never the easy way right?) The remote is not hard to change, but you DO have to let the fan hang from the holder on the ceiling bracket, It gets too heavy to hold while you change the remote.
All but one of the remotes I have changed, came from a mass market type of builder/handyman store, and they have just replaced the part at no charge.

Fan with light (no remote) with wall switch not a 3-way


Unless you want to use pull chains, you will either have to get a different fan with a remote, or you can buy a remote to ADD to an existing fan/light. It hooks up under the base of the lamp. They seem to work better than the factory fans with the built in remotes.
