    You are talking about ground and power wires coming into the control unit (not the remote) Correct?

HI,

The original connector was not assembled properly. If the original was a twist on type, then unscrew it. Otherwise, remove the connector by cutting it off with cutting pliers. Now strip back insulation from the 2 wires about 1/2 inch and then twist the 2 together. now screw on a wire connector (tightly) that you must purchase (sorry) in an electrical hardware store. Finally, wrap electrical tape around both the new connector and wires to prevent unraveling.

Note: If your fan is under warantee then donot try the above steps.

Thanks

Hunter fan works light broken


Check to make sure light wires are connected at light kit & remote. Otherwise it's probably a bad receiver. If there is a pull chain for the light pull it once & try the remote light button again.

Remote required to turn on light but fan turns on with light switch


Before you conclude the fan was wired incorrectly, try this:

1. Shut off power to the fan (at the circuit breaker)

2. Remove batteries from the remote and press all the buttons to eliminate the possibility of a stuck button. Reinstall batteries

3. Turn on power to the fan and try operation

Fan light turns on but doesn't turn off with remote also fan doesn't go on with remote


Make shure your batteries are good in the remote. Also some remotes have little dip switchers inside the battery cover that are either on or off. They must be in the same position as the dip switches on the receiver in the top canopy of the ceiling fan or the remote & receiver won't talk to each other. Apart from that you will probably need to replace the remote control & receiver unit.

Hunter ceiling fan remote will not turn off light it just dims the light


Try this. Remove power from the fan. Remove batteries from the remote. Press butttons on remote (might be stuck). Apply power to the fan. Install batteries in the remote and try all functions. If this doesn't work, the remote may be defective or the remote receiver may be defective. I can tell you from my own experience I have a ceiling fan that loses its mind whenever there is a power outage. Has to be reeducated from scratch

Two fans with the same remote code.


There are dip-switches in both the remote and the fan. You need to change the switches on one of your fans.

Remote control


in the remote and the fan the little blue box is called a dip switch
you will have to open fans base to access the remote power sender
on both the fan and remote the dip switches have to match in order for the remote to work the fan properly
or your signal will never make it to remote box
