Question about Hunter 52" Ceiling Fan With Light And Remote Control

1 Answer

Replacing old fan with Hunter 20763.

Old fan wiring was white from fan to blue from ceiling and Red and Black from fan to white from ceiling.

New fan wiring instructions call for white from fan to white from ceiling and black and black/white wire from fan to black from ceiling.

Can you help.

Thx
Dan

People find all kinds of creative ways to wire things. White wires are always supposed to be neutrals and therefore should always go with other white wires, and colored wires should always be hot and should always go with other colored wires. If you have a voltage tester you could test to see if in fact the blue wire is actually the hot and the white is actually the neutral. (test each wire to a ground). If the previous fan was wired backwards, it would not affect the operation of the fan or lights at all. But you'd probably want to make sure the new fan was wired properly. In that case connect the white from the fan to the neutral and the black and black/white to the hot.

White to white (Nutural) Red to hot wire (usually black) &If you have two hot wires the blue(light wire) would go to the other hot wire. If you only have one hot wire you put the black & blue wire together and connect to the hot wire.You will have to use the pull chains for both if you only have one hot as the fan is an old two speed and they do not make a fan control for the wall for that fan anymore. Also ,you will have to oil the fan after you hang it.Only use the Hunter oil.

Both the Red and Black wire are your hot wires. One is probably for the fan side and the other the lights. The white is your neutral wire or common and is used by both. So the wires from each switch are HOT, hook one wire to the black and the other switch wire to the red.

Black goes to the black on the fan white goes to the white on the fan and the red will go to the blue wire on the fan for lights. Now if you have a black wire with a white stripe on it from the fan that is the light wire.

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.
