Hunter Fan # 20723 The Westminster - lights delayed when turn on

I recently installed the above fan. There is around 2 second delay when you turn the light switch on. I went and purchased another exact fan and it's doing the same thing? Any possible solutions?

    I'm experiencing the same problem: 2 second delay before incandescent light comes on. Doesn't occur with my other three fans. Very strange!

    I have the same problem, but with a different model of Hunter ceiling fan. I'm pretty sure I wired it correctly. Maybe its something with their new fans.

    I have the same issue, bought 3 of the same model Hunter fan and all 3 are doing the delay. I did notice that if you use the pull chain to turn the lights on and off there is no more delay. The delay only occurs when using the light switch.

Here is the answer I received from Hunter Technical Support.

"The light fixtures are manufactured with a limiter that prevents a higher than recommended wattage bulb from working. The limiter causes the slight delay even when the correct bulbs are is in use."

Pretty annoying if you ask me.

    Same issue, same correction Installed 4 ea 60w bulbs. Instructions says unit limited to 190w total. Change to 4ea 40w (160w total) and problem went away. However of the 2 fans installed at the same time, 1 eventually "failed" and the lights would just continue to flash on and off. Should have read those dang instructions....

Remove the limiter from the circuit... Light works fine without it. Just remember to use 40 W 120V Candelabra bulbs.
Disconnect "Light Out" (red wire) from the 4 black light socket wires, Disconnect the black "Live In" wire from the limiter. Connect the black wire from switch (that went to "Live In") and connect it to the 4 black wires going to the light sockets. Cut the "Common in" wire close to the limiter, strip it, remove the "Common Out" wire (white) from the 4 white (neutrel) light socket wires. Attach the stripped "Common In" white wire to the 4 white light socket wires. Limiter should now be completely removed from circuit, and black wire coming from pull chain light switch should be hooked directly to 4 black light socket wires. The 4 white light socket wires should have a white wire labeled "Common In" hooked to them. Hope this helps.

    be careful, I cut my wire at the wrong end, near the connector and goofed up the whole thing... Oh well, new ceiling fan time... I still blame Hunter and believe me my new one WON'T BE A HUNTER! Good Luck to everyone else!

If you're using a fluorescent light, this is normal.

If your Fan is less than a year old it's probably still under warranty. Mine was! I called Hunter and they sent out a new light ***'y. Fixed the problem and believe me nobody touches that fan but me! Good luck everyone!

How long after burner is on should fan come on ?burner going out fan not coming on how to test fan or thermastat?


Your furnace has a fan delay relay that should turn the indoor fan on once the temperature gets up to about 150 degrees near the fan. The delay relay closes and energizes the fan circuit and opens once the thermostat is satisfied and the main gas valve turns the gas off. The delay relay keeps the indoor fan running for until the air temperature gets back down to around 100 degrees. If the fan delay relay stops working it will need to be replaced. Temporarily you can turn the fan to on on the thermostat and the heat should operate normally until the relay can be changed. The indoor fan will just run continuously. At least you will have heat.
Hope this helps

My bryant furnace fan will not turn on. Everything is sequencing, the induction fan starts and the flame lights, but the fan will not turn on. The capacitor reads 4.86 uf. Any suggestions?


Your fan delay relay is not functioning. On most furnace fan controls, there is a fan delay relay that delay the fan from turning on until it senses the temperature increase, typically around 130 degrees. once the relay senses the temperature increase it closes a contact inside the sensor and turns the blower on. It is the same device that keeps the fan running once the furnace turns off. Just take the Model number and serial number to your local dealer and get a fan delay relay and replace it.

Does the exhaunst fan turn on automatically when we cook or warm food items in our Samsung Microwave -- SMH 9187W?


Some interesting reading on page 8 of the owner's manual:

"Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite and spread if the vent fan is operating.To minimize automatic fan operation, use adequate sized cookware and use high heat on surface units only when necessary."

And on page 20:

"If the temperature becomes too hot around the microwave oven, the fan in the vent hood will automatically turn on at the LEVEL 2 setting to cool the oven. The fan will automatically turn off when the oven has cooled down sufficiently. This is an automated process and cannot be turned off. The fan may stay on for 30 minutes or more after the cooktop and microwave controls are turned off. The Vent Fan will only operate in 1~4 levels modes while the microwave is working."

"Using the Vent delay off button
1. Press the Delay Off button once to turn the fan off after 1 minute.
2. Press the Delay Off button twice to turn the fan off after 3 minutes.
3. Press the Delay Off button three times to turn the fan off after 5 minutes.
4. Press the Delay Off button fiour times to turn the fan off after 10 minutes.
5. Press the Delay Off button five times to turn the fan off after 30 minutes."

If for some reason you don't have your owner's manual, you can still download it free here.

After installing new fan, lights work, but fan doesn't.


Make sure that the fan was connected in the unit. If there is no manula control then you must check if the connection has come off in the dual assembly. Check the fan coils and the connecction to the starter capacitor. If open connect, if there is connection to the unit check for failure of the line.

Short delay in ceiling fan light turning on


I also ran into this "problem". Installed five of the same fan last week and four of them have the light switched, one of them is on a 3-way switch. All the switched lights delay when turning them on while the "always on" light operated by pull string is just fine.
Could find no explanation in the user manual other than, as previous post mentions, new federal regulations that limit the wattage. One can assume that there is some sort of regulator inside the light fixture that needs to power up and/or run some sort of check to see how much power is being pulled by the lights.
The delay is super annoying, but I suppose all light kits are going to have this now. Thank you FEDERAL GOVERNMENT!

Installed new hunter westminster and the lights work but no fan. and how do i get my hunter remote to work with fan?


begin by unscrewing one wire nut at a time to be sure that the wires are tightly twisted together before the wire nut is reinstlled. Once you have the fan working manually, the remote will also work.
