Hi Bigelow,

You need two switches.  It sounds like the Electrician set up the junction box for two circuits(Lights and Fans).  i say this because your supply has 4 wires, Red , Black, White and Bare. We may be able to oversome this with one Lutron Switch. Allow me to investigate, and I will be back.

SOURCE: hampton bay fan light half power

I had the same issue....Take the remote control and press the light button once...then hold down the light button for several seconds and they should slowly increase and/or decrease depending on the amount of time you hold the control button. Hope this helped.

SOURCE: How to wire a remote control ceiling fan, without using remote.

If you don't want the to use the remote you don't have to, but you don't have enough wires to switch the upper light, the lower light, and the fan. You can, however, switch the upper and lower lights together if that's okay. In order to do that you'd connect the white from the ceiling box to the white (neutral) on the fan, then the green from the ceiling box to any green(ground) wires on the fan, then the black from the ceiling box to the black(motor) from the fan, then the red from the ceiling box to the blue and orange (lights) from the fan. I'm assuming that the black and red in the ceiling box are also in the switch box where the fan/light control switch is going. Those are the ones you'll connect to the controller.

SOURCE: ceiling fan is controlled by dimmer

Check your owners manual to see if they recommend against using a dimmer switch not included by the manufacturer.
I have one about 6 years old and I originally installed a dimmer switch. It reduced the speed and was very noisy.
Removed it and all is well.

SOURCE: My home is pre wired for a ceiling fan in the master bedroom. There are two light switches that control the pre installed wires. One for the light on the fan and one for the fan. There are four wires

The usual wiruing for these fan/light circuits is that the black wire on one switch is for the fan and the red on the other switch is for the light. If you are using a remote set up for both fan and light, then hook the remote wires to the black and white wires in the ceiling, You can cap off the red wire in the ceiling as this will not be used.

I want to bypass the remote


You might be able too but you need two hot wires in the house wiring. If you have two hot wires(1 for fan & 1 for light) try a fan/light wall control.

Hunter fan remote bypass


This fan uses a "ballast" to run the fan. The ballast (part #272) probably contains wiring for multiple speeds. Here is a manual that discusses the wiring- http://www.hunterfan.com/SupportDocuments/OwnersManuals/42700.pdf.
To use a wall mounted fan dimmer, you need to identify the high speed wires and connect them to the dimmer switch. This method will bypass the other speed windings and is not as power efficient.

If you have a remote then you can't use the dimmer switch on the wall. Put in an on/off switch.

When I put the light on, the fan comes on; the light is on a dimmer switch and the brighter the light, the faster the fan; remote control does no better with controlling either


It sounds like you have a wiring error. The fan and light wires are separate so you can wire them independently if you want. Often people want to have one switch or dimmer control the light, and control the fan with a different one. I suspect you have both the fan and light connected to the dimmer. This isn't healthy for the motor, so it should be corrected. (You can have both fan and light controlled by the same switch if it's a standard on-off type, but the motor shouldn't be connected to a dimmer.)

I need a pull chain DIMMER switch for my fan light. Only one set of wires supplies the fan and light. Surely SOMEBODY has a pull chain dimmer ??? Thanks. Bill


Bought three fans for the bedrooms, all hunters with pull chain dimmers. Less than one year and two of the three dimmers are shot. Can't find a replacement so I bypassed it. Remove light assembly and unplug 9pin connector. Remove black vented dimmer assembly by removing wire nuts and disconnecting the 2wire connector(black and white wires). Cut the 2wire connector off and save it in case you find a part someday. Wire nut black to black(hot) and white to white(neutral). You will disable the pull chain by wire nutting those two wires together.

Hunter Ceiling Fan 25885 remote won't turn off light


Hello,
I have this fan model. The RED is a common wire. Wire it in with all the white wires. Better yet why don't you just bypass the module for the light. You could buy a more up to date Lutron wall switch W/remote control. The Black wire W/White stripe coming from the module is the light control. Cut & cap this with a wire nut. The same wire coming from the fan motor Connect it to your new wall switch. Now heres the tricky part. You have to run a new (Non switched) hot wire to your fan this will connect to the module normally. This is the new power for the fan. The remote that comes with the fan can serve as the On/Off 1,2 & 3 speeds. You now have two remotes. One for the fan the original and one for the light control w/wall switch. The new Lutron model will give you full dimming capability for incondesent bulbs. It is much less noisy when you are dimming the light down.

The Hampton Bay Altura Ceiling fan functions only with remote.


I contacted the manufacturer (kingofffans.com) after my Altura fan would run on high speed only and the remote would not control any thing. They said their was a manufacturing defect with a capacitor that affected many of the Altura fans. We are now on a waiting list for a new capacitor and housing, because they did not have enough replacement parts.

Wiring p fan speed cotrol switch


most common fanlight control is 2 dimmer switches in parallel to control fan spped and light, direction is still usually controlled on the fan body
requires 3 wire in the light box, and a compund dimmer, this one has left and right and fits a single switch box

where a fanlight is used to replace a regular household fitting there is often only 2 wire in the switch box, either a sparky can fishtape an extra cable along the lamp cable, or replace the wire,
the 3 wires from the fanlight are light fan and neutral

some new retrofit fanlights have remote controls to negate rewiring
