Question about Hunter 21871 56'' Ergonomic Brushed Nickel Ceiling Fan
I'm trying to wire a Hunter 21871 ceiling fan to a Lutron Maestro MA-LFQHW wall control. I do not need a remote control, so I'm not installing the remote control canopy module that came with the fan. How do I connect the red, black, yellow and white wires from the Lutrons canopy module to the red, black, yellow, pink, gray and white wires coming from the Hunter fan?

sounds like one of your connections is loose. Im not sure if i completely understand your description of how you re-hoked up your fan. Please tell me how many wires your fan has and colors and how many wires you have on the sensor remote. (lots of times if you draw a wiring diagram on paper you can figure it out) Basically you should have power coming from ceiling to remote sensor. Then the remote sensor should throw the power to either the fan or the light, so there should be two seperate leads coming out of the remote sensor to control either the fan or the light independantly.

Black to black. from fan
Blue to Black and white. from fan
White to white. from fan
The input is from ceiling supply
the black wire from fan is for motor.
the black and white is for the light.

You just need to wrap it and tuck it .. You might need to cut some of the fan wires shorter so there is not so much bulk under the canopy cover. The fans are shipped with enough wire leads to be able to use a down rod, They can be cut shorter when the fan is being installed.

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.

if you look at the mount bracket where the ball of the fan fits in to it should fit right above the ball in the mount bracket and if it can fit loose in the canopy thats ok to just long as ou can get the bell housing back up
