Question about Hunter 28486 Ceiling Fan

Hunter Ceiling Fan 25885 remote won't turn off light

When I flip the wall switch, the light comes on as expected. I can press any of the fan-related buttons on the remote and they work fine. The light button does nothing - the light stays on. Only two wires come into the unit (black and white) and the light kit is properly connected to the dangling connector, so this is not a wall-switch problem. I tried to get a manual from Hunter but the unit is too old. I looked online for a wiring diagram, but again could only find diagrams for more recent units with different wiring. The Receiver model is CP-9110R. Most of the wiring is as expected (pink to pink, gray to gray, yellow to yellow, B/W to B/W, black to black). The one oddball thing was there is a red wire coming from the fan assembly that is twisted in with all the white wires. Anyone know what that red wire is for? Anyone have a wiring diagram or instruction manual for this fan or receiver since Hunter isn't helping me (twice they said they would TRY to find a physical manual and get back to me). If the wiring is correct, then I may need to replace the receiver. It worked this way when I moved in, so I have no way of knowing if it ever worked correctly with the current wiring configuration.

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.

If you have a remote then you can't use the dimmer switch on the wall. Put in an on/off switch.

Hunter fan works light broken


Check to make sure light wires are connected at light kit & remote. Otherwise it's probably a bad receiver. If there is a pull chain for the light pull it once & try the remote light button again.

My hunter fan light can't be turned on/off with the light switch


The switch will only turn the power on to the fan/light. You have to use the remote to dimm the light & change the speeds. You should be able to install it on the wall next to the switch so you can turn on your light when entering the room.

The remote controls the fan speed but wont dim or control the light. the unit wont work if the light switch is off so I cant use the fan at all unless the light is turned on


mcdevito75 here, Generally the Ceiling fan motor is hooked up by-passing the wall switch but still to the hot laed going to the wall switch whlie the lights are hooked up to the hot lead after the wall switch, So without the remote, Manually operate your fan and lights. First with the wall switch off the fan should work and the lights no work. Now turn the fan off with the pull chain on the fan shroud close to the ceiling. Now turn wall switch on and lights should work with wall switch and the fan should also work. if so, re-program the remote or change the batteries or even re--place the remote.

I think our house is haunted. Just installed


See my post below: (Sorry, we're in the same boat!) Hunter ceiling fan with remote, have 5, 4 are seriously impaired! Lights dim to half strengh after variable time 10 seconds-30 minutes. And lights or fan turns on randomly (come home & fan on full blast), and one in which the lights won't dim (just blinks when try to dim)! Hunter "kinda" admits there is serious problem with remote but doesn't have a solution. Tells people to try changing to different code/channel on the remote due to possible interference (pain in **** to change code on ceiling base!), was totally ineffective. Then replaced receiver in ceiling base (another total pain) in 3 fans with new ones sent Hunter, still totally useless. Hunter's suggestion, don't use the remote, just use the pull chain. If I had wanted a pull chain fan, I'd have bought a pull chain fan. TOTALLY USELESS! Moral of story: If you want a remote ceiling fan (my friend found out that all their remotes are made by the same company in Taiwan), don't buy Hunter!!!!!
- P.S. I found a "Kinda"- fix for the lights dimming to half strenth. After turning on the lights, wait 1 second, then dim lights slightly, they will then stay on the strength that you dim them to. - P.P.S. When I changed the receiver in the one where the lights won't dim, it "solved" that problem...Now it has the same problem as the others, lights or fan turn on randomly!

HUNTER ceiling fan remote works with fan but not light


Unfortunately, you either have a faulty reciever or remote. A replacement will cost $30-$40 at homedepot2.gif. And it doesn't matter which is faulty because you can't purchase them seperately anyhow.

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.

Remote control ceiling fan


Possibly a bad circuit board in the ceiling fans remote function. I would suspect that the circuit board has a thermal issue where once warm it works fine. The most common fault that I have seen is a bad solder connection on the board. Pull the board from the fan and check all solder connections for cracks or dull solder. If you see any of these then reflow the solder connections. If this does not work you probably will need to order a new board from the manu.
