Here is what hunter technical support says about this.

"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."

Furnace will not turn on even after the thermostat is programed. Thermostat is a Hunter 44155c


5 a. Check the Heat/Cool function switch to ensure it is set to the desired position. 5 b. Wait. There may be as much as a 4-minute delay before the system turns on or off to protect the compressor. 5 c. Check the circuit breakers and switches to ensure there is enough power to the system. 5 d. Replace the batteries. 5 e. If applicable, make sure the furnace blower door is closed properly. 5 f. If your system has 4 wires, ensure the jumper wire is installed between the RC and RH terminals.

Why my Hunter Ceiling Fan does not work?


Its unlikely that the fan is on a separate feed from the breaker box than the rest of the outlets in your room but you never know. It would not hurt to check all of your breakers. If the fan and its light are controlled by the same wall switch then the wall switch may have went bad. Within the fan there are separate wires for the fan and the light so both of them would not go out at the same time. It makes more sense that the problem is at your wall switch.

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.

Keep poping the breaker on instllation


Check your wiring for short circuits. If you turn the switch on and it pops it may be in the switch box or up in the fan box. Also make sure the fan blades spin freely. A motor overload or short circuit would be the only reason for the breaker tripping immediately.

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!

Hunter ceiling fan remote control will not work


Are you talking about just activating the fan, or the tv as well? If you just need the fan, in the top plate where your fan is mounted into the ceiling, there is a box. This box has 4 switches that are turned on or off towards a number. You find that and then just open your remote up and set the switches in the remote to the identical numbers. I need help for the tv codes i lost the booklet, i need the codes for a daewoo.

Broken pull cord for the 3 speed fan (Hunter kiw profile)


Turn off circuit breaker to fan. Remove bottom cover plate. Remove thumb nut holding switch in place. Examine switch. Places where wires push in should be numbered. Write down number and coresponding wire color. Remove wires from switch. Take switch with you. Walmart carries some switches but if you can't find it there go to a Locke supply store. Know how many speeds the fan iswhen you go looking. Reassamble in reverse order.
