Question about Hunter Ceiling Fan Light Switch Control

Open Question

I have a Hunter 21782 dual switch for my ceiling fan with light. The manual shows me a wiring diagram, and it tells me to connect the black wire from the switch to the "Hot" wire from the wall outlet, connect the blue wire from the switch to the "Fan" wire from the wall outlet, and then connect the red wire from the switch to the "Light" wire from the wall outlet. My problem is that I have a black, red, white, and copper wire with no coating on it coming out from the wall outlet, but I don't know which is the Hot, Fan, and Light wires. How do I figure this out, as the manual doesn't explain wire colors for the Hot, Fan, and Light wires?

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 ceiling fan. Lights and fans turn on and

Obviously you have 2 (two) hunter fans with remote, so one of the fan needs to have frequency changed : on the base fan you will find (white rectangular )receiver that has 8 (eight small) switches, the same switches you would find in the remote control, slide 1 switch up ( on the remote and the receiver). Make sure same number ok (these 8 switches has #'s 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8) then reinstal your fan back the way it was. you'll be fine. good luck

Wiring diagram for harbor breeze celing fan


The colors of the wires in the Harbor Breeze ceiling fan kits tell you what their functions are. The black wire is hot for the fan, the white is a common wire for both the fan and the light kit, green is ground and blue is hot for the light kit. locate the black and blue wires from the ceiling fan and connect them to the black wire inside the electrical junction box by twisting an orange wire connector onto all three wires. Locate the white wire from the ceiling fan and the white wire from the junction box and attach the two wires together with a wire connector. Connect the bare copper wire onto the green wire from the ceiling fan mounting bracket by twisting an orange wire connector onto the two wires. Push all wiring inside the electrical box. good-day !

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.

Hunter Quiet Breeze Model 21728, I have dual switch wiring and cannot match the wires in the owner's manual description with the wires that the unit have. Can anybody help - how to connect the wires?


The wires that should be in the light box (in your ceiling) should be red, black, and white. Red is typically for the light. Black is typically for the fan, and white is your neutral. The fan should have 3 different wires to connect.. They are likely color coded. The manual should explain which wire is for what...

Need a basic diagram to wire a ceiling fan.


Depending on how your place is wired will dictate the solution here.

The light box in your ceiling should have two or three wires. Black and White, or Red, Black and White.

If you have two wires (one switch to control everything):
Black is power - hook this to the fan's power wire (and the fan's light wire if applicable)
White is neutral - hook this to the fan's neutral wire.

If you have three wires (two separate switches):
Red is power for the light - hook this to the fan's light wire if applicable
Black is for the fan - hook this to the fan's motor
White is neutral - hook this to the fan's neutral wire.

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.

Bought a hunter remote and can't figure out what wires to connect


The remote red wire should go to the black wire that goes to the light. The remote black wire should go to the black or black with white stripe wire to the fan. The white wire should go to both white wires from the light and fan.

The power in (black and white) should be connected to your power source black and white. Bare copper wire to ground on fixture
