Hunter fan light kit wiring -

I have a hunter fan that the fan works and the lights don't. I have replaced the wall switch and the chain switch. There are 4 white wires and four black. I have connected the black to all black and white to all white with the exception of the switch which I did the black to the white. It still doesn't work. Any ideas?

Sorry, but I would recommend you get an electrician in to sort it out. Playing with electricity is dangerous.

SOURCE: wiring ceiling fans to wall switch

Hi Bigelow,

You need two switches.  It sounds like the Electrician set up the junction box for two circuits(Lights and Fans).  i say this because your supply has 4 wires, Red , Black, White and Bare. We may be able to oversome this with one Lutron Switch. Allow me to investigate, and I will be back.

If you removed a switch there should be two wires. Connect one of the wires to each of the switch wires or screws. good luck

SOURCE: Replacing a ceiling fan pull chain light switch.

that is strange
normally a 3 wire switch could only be able to control 2 things + off. black would be common, red would be one fan speed or set of lights and blue would be the other fan speed or set of lights.
if it is a replacement, couldn't you just hook it up like the switch you are removing?

most likely the black wires are grounds for everything and white would be power. hook it up however you like. white power would hook up to the black wire on the switch and then the blue to one light and red to the other set of lights white wires.
good luck!

Bad hunter ceiling fan light pull switch


I don't know what you mean, longer stem/chain housing to hold light fixture. You should be replacing a two wire switch only.

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.

Hunter fan model 25706 both the lights & fan have stopped working


mcdevito75 here, VeryGood question, very good, here we go, ------ First a re-set for the motor, I really don"t know but if there is it"s on the motor itself, you"d have to un-screw the cover just at the ceiling and let this cover slide down the chain Attached from the ceiling to the fan itself. and check the motor itself for a reset swtch, usually a red bitton. Now!! true, if the fan motor is bad it could affect the lights, here"s how, the wall switch supplies electricity to the fan motor and the pull chain on the motor turns the fan on, from the motor itself to the fan lights another wire also from the fan motor goes to the fan lights, SO!! if the fan motor is no good it won"t allow electricity to go on to the fan lights. Maybe you Fan motor is just stuck, specially if you haven"t used it in a whlie, with the wall swiotch on and fan speed on low try to gently move the fan blades them selves. If not you may have to repalace the fan.

Adding lite kit to 1980's solid state fan. Manual


the switch on the wall has to break the power to your fan and new light and the both must share but be switched independently at the fan. the 2 wires that the light were hooked up to should be tied to a pull chain and tied to the supply and not tied in with the wiring for the fan any longer

Usually you have to press the light switch 3 times and hold to get dim effect adjustments, it is often radio transmitted in some newer models, if the pull switch is bad replace it anyways it could be dangerous if let alone!

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.
