Question about Hunter Ceiling Fan Light Remote Control
Fan with remote won't work with wall switch. I originally had a ceiling fan w/light, and the wall switch operated the light (on/off), but not the fan. I had a remote that operated the fan and the light just fine. The unit basically blew up after about 10 years, blowing bulbs, and the circuit, so I replaced it, and the remote, and nothing has worked right since. Here is my wiring dilemma:
From the ceiling: White, Black, Red
I believe that the Red goes to the wall switch, which is a 3-way. No ground wires.
From the fan: black, white, blk/white
From the remote: black, white, red, black, white.
The 1st electrician hooked blk to blk, white to white, red to blk/white, and then the blk/blk and white/white to the ceiling, closing off the red wire from the ceiling. The wall switch could be used to cut power, but that was all - would not turn on the light. Really did not like that.
2nd electrician hooked the red wire from the ceiling to the blk/white at the fan, closed off the red from the remote. This should have allowed us to operate the light at the wall (but not the remote), and the fan from the remote. Light works, fan does not. It is only able to turn it on/off, not change speeds.
So what did we do wrong here? I know it worked correctly with the old fan/remote - why not this one? Any ideas?
Fan model - Hunter 21705
Remote - Hunter 27185
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.
