The black box that you're referring to is the receiver module. This is required for it to function with the remote control.

The light on a fan is flickering. It doesn't appear to be the light bulbs. This fan has a remote control and it controls the fan OK and turns the light on and off but it flickers. What could be...


Try changing or testing the batteries in the remote or take the remote out of the fans range. See if this stops the flickering. It can also be the individual bulb. Sometimes the monofillament wires become loosened. It won't hurt the fan to use a broken bulb but it will shorten the life of the bulb. They do get the daylights shook out of them! If all the bulbs flicker it can be the twist connects. These are located under the ceiling plate cover. To check, shut off the fan or turn off the braker switch to make sure you don't get a shock (but I really doubt it). Remove the face plate ceiling screws to expose the wiring. There should be a black and a red cap that holds wires together. Black is ground red is power. One at a time hold the wires of the black cap with one hand and give the cap a gentle clockwise twist with your other hand to see if they need tightening. Repeat with the other colored cap. Push the wires back up inside the housing if needed and replace the cover.
These are the simpelist things to try before calling an expert. I hope this helps?

We had the Hunter fan installed in April and have been very pleased with its performance. About a week ago whenever you turn on the fan light it flickers nonstop. Can you help me?


this is caused by the watt governor or the black box in fan to the lights. remove the watt governor and wire the lights directly. when removed, hook white wire to white wire, and black wire to red wire. black and red wires are always the hot wires. governor part number- 98480-02, have a good day !!

Thanks for the beta, but I may not have been clear in how the wiring is set up. This all behind sheet rock with existing wire from a previous unit. So coming from the switch box there are two sets of wires...


You happened to catch the same guy who answered before.
You can re-post again and I'll step aside if that is your choice.

I see. The power is coming from a junction box into the fan-light combo
You have 2 cables dropping down to the two switches, and each cable has black-white-ground

The grounds are connected together and to the green screws.

Black Hot connects to both black wires that drop to single pole switches
White wires from switches connect to fan-blue and light-black wires
Fan-white and light-white connect to white neutral
Crude drawing shows wiring:

If you still have a question,
You can answer directly to this post.
I will not be back for about 10 hours.
But this wiring is correct from the information you have given
Hot blacks going to switches is code.

Your problem is you are using too much wattage for your fan. You can solve this one of two ways. Put in lower wattage light bulbs (per your manufacturer recommendations) The other is to remove the wattage governor. There should be 3 screws holding your light assembly on. Remove these screws then disconnect the white rectangular plug in connector (this is what connects the fan wiring to the light assembly wiring). At this point you should be free to take the light assembly to a table. Follow the light pull chain wires from inside. One of these wires will lead to a black box that has 1 black wire, 1 red wire and 2 white wires. Remove this black box...this is the wattage governor. Remove by cutting the 2 white wires as close to the box as you can, peel back the insulation and use a wire nut to connect the 2 white wires together. Remove the wire nut on the black wire from the switch to this black box. Now you have one red wire left and your bare black wire from the switch. You will remove the red wire and put the bare black wire from the switch in it's place. Throw the wattage regulator in the trash and install you light assembly back to the fan. It will no longer blink but you should still use the recommended wattage light bulbs to prevent overheating.

Tried to install a ceiling fan to replace a chandelier. light on fan and fan itself works but only by the pull chains, it will not turn off or on by the wall switch that controlled the light. when i...


I can help with this but I need some more clarification. Does the switch on the wall not do anything at all, or does it turn them both off or on. The black wires are the power wires and the whites are your neutrals. You figure out what wires are coming from your switch. If there was a switch on the wall that controlled your chandelier before that there has to be a white and black wire that go to that switch. Look at the switch in the wall. If all you see in the switch box is a black and white wire then they did a switch loop, which means they started the power up in the fan box, sent it out to the switch through the white wire and brought it back to the fan through the black wire in which case the one white wire up in the fan box is a powered wire. If there are four wires in the switch box (2 black two white), then they brought the power into the switch box, tied the whites together as neutrals and connected the blacks to the switch. So then up at your fan the white is neutral and black is power. To wire a switch loop at your fan, find the power wire, connect it to the white wire that goes out to your switch and the black wire from your switch will get connected to your fan motor and fan light. If it was not a a switch loop connect fan to the black coming from the switch and all whites will get tied together. Good luck!!

Fan lights just started blinking, we changed bulbs which were bad but still blinking with new bulbs


This problem was posted on several sites, but this was the only one where I found both the cause of the problem and the solution. Mine is a Hunter 5 Minute Fan which came with no remote. And after about a month the two lights would blink together whenever I'd turn them on at the wall. So in case it helps for that type of fan or the same type of wiring arrangment here is what I did: POSITIVE SIDE: P1) Remove the light shade. P2) Remove the 3 screws that hold the cowel and lower the cowel. P3) Disconnect (pull apart) the black and red wire coupling. P4) Cut the coupling off of the black wire that comes up from the lights. P5) Strip off a quarter inch of jacket from that black wire. P6) Remove the wire nut that connects the black wire coming from the governor with the other black wire. P7) Re-use the wire nut to connect the black wire from step P5 with the other black wire from step P6. NEGATIVE SIDE: N1) Disconnect (pull apart) the white to white wire coupling. N2) Cut the coupling off of the white wire that comes up from the lights. N3) Strip off a quarter inch of jacket from that white wire. N4) Remove the wire nut that connects the white wire coming from the governor with three other white wires. N5) Set the governor aside (or just throw it away). N6) Re-use the wire nut to connect the white wire from step N3 with the other white wires from step N4. That's all, you're pretty much done! Turn on the power and test the light. If all is good, re-install the cowel and the light shade.

If you have only a black and white (and bare ground wire) in the ceiling box where the old fan was connected before, you should connect both the blue and black wires from the fan to the Black (common) wire in the ceiling box.

Then connect the white wire from the fan to the white (neutral) wire in the box together. Connect the green and bare wires together (Ground wires) and the fan and light should function with the pull chains as designed.

IF you have a wall switch for the ceiling fan and a separate one for the light, it is simply a matter of making the connections for the light and fan to the proper wires going to the wall switch box. Typically, the ceiling fan's light wire (blue in most cases) is connected to the red wire in the ceiling box, while the fan wire (black in most cases) is connected to the black wire in the ceiling box. Connect the white wires together; and then the green and bare wires together for your ground and you should be set.

Remember to disconnect the power to this circuit by turning off the breaker before doing any wiring work.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
