How to convert a Hunter ceiling fan remote to hard wire switches?

Greetings,
We have a Hunter remote controlled fan with lights using remote # cp911or.
We do NOT like to use the remote and would like to hard rewire it so we
can use the 3-way wall switches instead of the remote.
Wires inside the fan:
red, black, white, violet, grey, yellow, thin black wire (antenna?)
Are there wiring diagrams we can refer to for this?
Any suggestions?
Thank you kindly,
Cheers!
Tony Young

    Do you want to hardwire both the light and the fan?

    I have half a dozen of these 25736 hinter fans that I too would love to retrofit to "mechnical" switching rather than using remotes and receivers. I'm wondering if you ever figured out how to do this? If I find a solution I'll post it.

SOURCE: hunter fan/light control wiring

solution depends on how many wires are in the ceiling box. was there a ceiling fan in place before? were the light and fan controlled by seperate switches or was there only one switch? if two switches, then there should be two seperate hot wires in the ceiling box. if only one switch, then only one hot wire in box. if only one, then your black and red from the fan will wire together to the single hot. green goes to the bare copper wire, if not one, then not needed

SOURCE: Wiring a ceiling fan w/light

To add to red54's comments:

This is what I believe you have:

- one source in the ceiling box (black & white)

- one donwline circuit in ceiling box going to another wall/ceiling box (black&white)

- on switch wire in ceiling box coming from your wall switch (black & white) -- this is the white wire which will be hot when the switch is truned on

Here's how it should be connected:

- all 3 blacks in ceiling box connected together -- no other wires in this bundle

- white wire (which is hot when switched) coming from switch connects to the black/blackwhite fan wires

- connect all reamining white wires together in bundle

- connect all ground wires together

It's that simple. Trick is figuring out, of the three cables in the ceiling box, which is source, which is downline, which is switch.
Maybe red54's procedure can help you figure that out.

SOURCE: Hunter fan wiring

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.

SOURCE: 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.

How to eliminate receiver/transmitter in hunter 28425


Open the box at the bottom of the ceiling fan, where the switch is. You should find the receiver inside there. You'll find one white wire connected to it, and two black wires also connected to it. Remove the white wire completely or cap it off with a wire nut. Connect the two black wires to each other with a wire nut. Reassemble the ceiling fan. If the problem was the receiver, then the problem is now gone because the receiver is gone.

Lights come on at random .has a remote how to fix ?


The fan remote control receiver used in the Hunter 25730 model fan (see picture) is not available from Hunter. Remove the fan from the ceiling. Remove the receiver and take it to recycling. It can be replaced using a readily available and inexpensive replacement universal remote and receiver controller. There are limitations though. The Hunter receiver provided fan reversing functions. The universal controllers do not. You therefore have two options.

Option 1: The universal receiver can be installed such that the fan direction is fixed, either up or down, all other functions operate normally.

Option 2: A reversing switch can be purchased from Radio Shack for about $4 and installed in the fan. This does require cutting a square hole and drilling two bolt or rivet holes in the side of the cylindrical housing which previously housed the Hunter receiver. I'd suggest the Radio Shack DPDT slide switch part number 275-403.

Refer to the wiring diagrams and connector pinout diagram for connections. Please note that the connector pinout diagram is the connector that is soldered to the circuit board as shown in the photo of the Hunter receiver. If your motor wire colors are different then with the connector unplugged from the receiver use a multimeter to probe all the motor wires in order to identify two pairs of wires that indicate approximately 70 ohms each pair. These will be the motor windings. 6b0a1409-5a20-4efe-a059-c600652e9512.jpg 5da8e4ef-1b54-40d0-a8a4-21d4608b1d23.jpg 9fc8772d-3ac3-41b7-aa55-78ccc6e5ea00.jpg 0759e340-6464-4c4b-90f5-6d9926e74e42.jpg

I have a ceiling light that does not have a switch anywhere. Can a hunter 27185 remote control be used to control the ceiling light fixture only. There is no fan in this scenario. How should it be wired?...


Connect the lamp output wire of the receiver to the hot wire of the fixture, and the incoming hot wire to the hot input of the receiver. Be sure to insulate the fan output wire(s) so nothing nasty happens if someone presses the fan on button.

Check the remote control manual to see if you can use compact fluorescent bulbs. You probably cannot if this is a dimming lamp control; most CF bulbs flicker wildly if used with dimmers, and will not last long.

You can also buy remote lamp-only switches.

Wiring instructions are terrible. Ceiling wires = Red, Black, White, Copper. Fan wires = Black, White, Copper. Remote wires = Neutral in(Black), Live In(Black), Light out(White), Fan out(White),...


That is dificult to follow .. here is the usual wiring plan for ceiling fans .. green to green or bare and mounting bracket ... ceiling black and red are live from the switches, fan and light.with a remote you really only need one of these , so cap off the red and use the black as your input to the remote .. the neutral to the remote should be the white .. there are only 3 wires from the fan so I am assuming that there is no light , or the light will be activated from the remote .. the black for the fan and the black for the lights connect to marked wires on the remote. .. lights out, fan out

or looking at your description .. ((Remote wires = Neutral in(Black) white ceiling wire, Live In(Black) blaxck ceiling wire, Light out(White) blue Fan/Light wire, Fan out(White) black fan/light wire, Common(White) white ceiling and white fan/light wires.

Hunter ceiling fan


The usual house wiring for a ceiling fan with two wall switches , is white to white, black to black, and red to the other wire, usually blue or black striped with blue. If this fan has a remote , then it usually only requires one power wire, black and the white neutral.

Im installing a hunter remote control receiver in the ceiling mount. I have a red, black, white and ground wire from the ceiling. Which wire on the reciever do I connect the red wire to?


The red wire in the ceiling is probably used in a shared neutral circuit and not needed for the fan. If it's not capped off already, it should be.

Just use black, white and ground from the ceiling.

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.

Sounds like the remote receiver units (located where the mains connect to the fans) took a surge and have failed.
