Question about Dryers
We are replacing an old fan with a pendant light fixture. The fan was wired with a 2way switch and a Hunter Vari-Speed switch. The ceiling box has three wires: red, black, and ground. The 2way switch has a red and black wire, but the Vari-Speed switch has a white and black wire. We attached the indicated fixture wire to the red wire from the ceiling box and the plain black fixture wire to the black wire from the ceiling box. NO LUCK. We tested continuity from the switch to the ceiling box wires and that was positive. We have tried everything we can think of. HELP!
White - nuetral
black - zap the junk out of you positive
if you can test continuity then test for source power, check both black wires and the red. the white wire better be neutral
set your volt ohm meter to 200 VAC if you have a cheap dial one or if you have a nice auto range one, set it to AC volts and test. red to the three wires, black lead on white...

I would pull the cover off of the Light switch and look at the color of the wire leaving the Variable speed device. I only assume the red wire is from that. I do not like to assume anything. So you must verify that a red wire leaves the Variable speed device. If it does, then i am assuming you dim the lights with this Variable device. The fan has its own built in Variable speed setup. In the case that the red wire belongs to the variable device, wire the Red to Blue(light), and Black to Black Whites to white. Green to Ground. bare wires to ground.

since you have a remote, you don't need that extra wiring for the light/fan. just wire nut it off.
the switch at wall has 2 switches but only one will work now.

The black goes to the L connection the others are a guess. You can do this two ways. Connect the colored wires in any sequence and then see what switch sequence give you high and lowest, the other one will be medium. Once you determine that, mark the wires with a piece of masking tape as high, medium and low. Otherwise you connect them, turn power on and use a multimeter to see which color gives you the highest voltage and which gives you lowest. Since you aren't comfortable using live wires and a meter, go with the first option and use the process of elimination to find the wires giving you the speeds you need to find the highest and lowest. Next, you need to determine how your switch sequence works. First pull has to give you highest speed. so you may end up wiring them in reverse if your first attempt is backwards. There is a reason the first pull needs to be highest, it powers up the motor so you can then chose a lower setting. A low setting first will over tax your motor and wear it out eventually as it has to work harder at first.
Let me know if you need further clarification and perhaps this is all you need to get fixed.
ps I checked on the Internet of a wiring diagram and I bet you did tok all to no avail.

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.
