Question about Hunter 22451 The Brookline Brushed Nickel Ceiling Fan

1 Answer

Pull chain for fan difficult to operate

This is just poor engineering. Obviously you pull the chain down to operate, but the pull switch is mounted sideways on the fan so without the light you would have to pull at a 90° angle to operate. With the light installed the problem worsens as the chain is threaded back to the middle of the unit to fit through the bottom of the light fixture. Even with this crappy design the problem could have been fixed with a smooth chain instead of a ball chain, but alas every ball gets stuck on the edge where it exits the fan motor unit as it is pulled. Its just a matter of time before too much pressure is applied and the chain breaks. The chain operating the light is correctly install facing downwards and is not a problem. I'm still considering re-engineering this fan to work right.

All Hunter ceiling fans are "remote control" adaptable. Consider a remote control for it.
There are Nylon pull strings fitted with a ball clasps on the ends. Consider that, too.
Both at Lowe's or Home Depot...

Casa Vieja ceiling fan w/remote; worked well. Then wall switch was turned on/off, chains pulled. Everything working: fan high, med and low, and light on/off/dim - except now fan won't turn off !


The chain pulling and switch flipping causes the simple logic in the remote receiver to become confused. Your only hope for restoring normal operation (short of replacement) is to disconnect power at the source, then remove remote battery and press all buttons to eliminate "stuck button" problem. Reconnect power and test operation using only the remote. If normal, you will have to decide whether to disable pull chains, wall switches, or both. If not normal, you will have to try an infinite number of combinations of pull chains, wall switches, and power on-off to get things back to normal.

Hampton Bay cieling fan. Fan will not operate without light being on. Is there a wiring problem or a fix for this


Isn't there a pull chain to shut off the light? If you only had a light there before and it was controlled by a single switch, that switch will now turn on the fan and light and you have to pull the chain to shut the light off and pull a different chain to turn the fan on and select speed.

The pull chain for the light on my Monte Carlo Ceiling Fan will not retract. now I cannot turn light off. Any ideas?


Well, you can take it down and replace the switch. Most decent hardware stores have generic internal switches. You could unscrew the bulb a little every time you want it off.
You could mount a wall switch for the unit and live with the fan and light always being on at the same time.
The pull-switch is not too difficult to replace, just seems scary. disconnect the unit from all power and do the work at the table.
Keep all fasteners in order of removal, and make notes or label parts with tape as you disassemble. Take a picture of the switch when you get it open and show it to the person at the store. Bring home the new switch and swap it in one wire at a time.
Reassemble, remount, and sew on your DIY achievement patch:) Farmerbear at FixYa.com

Connected wires following instructions, but lights and fan do not work


OK, here we go. Hi, WoobieDog here. First, try to operate the pull chains on the side of the fan, usually one for the fan, one for the light. If this doesn't fix the problem, proceed as follows. What else is on the same circuit as the fan? Usually there is more than one light on a circuit. Do the other devices still work? If NO, the problem is probably your breaker. If the other devices do work, the problem is probably at the fan or the wall switch. Trip the breaker on the circuit that the fan operates on, and turn the switch to "off " at the wall. With the fan still mounted, gain access to the wires at the ceiling. Where you connected the wires, test for loose connections and visually inspect each wiring connection. When you remove each wire nut, you should see both wires making a good connection to each other and that the wire nut was making the twisted wire connection more secure. Make sure that you have connected the wires in the proper manner, that is that the fan motor wire (usually black) is connected to the proper switch at the wall for on/off operation and that the light wire (usually blue) is either connected to the light switch or to the same hot line as the motor wire if you are using the pull chains and a single wall switch. Don't overlook the neutral (white wire) connection, as a bad connection on this line will prevent both the motor and the light from working, as you described. If all is well there, close the wires back up under the mounting bracket. With the breaker still tripped to the off position, operate the forward/reverse slide switch on the side of the fan, if equipped. Put everything at the fan back to operating conditions. Turn the breaker back on. Operate the wall switch/switches. Operate the pull chains as these are additional switches inside of the fan and light.
Hope this was helpful. --WoobieDog--

Pull Chains Replacement


Replacements are available at Home Depot and Lowes. This is a regular 4-wire single-layer switch.

Mark the old wires, so you know which ports they go to in the switch (marked L, 1, 2, and 3) -- then remove the old wires by pressing a paper clip into the hole of each wire while pulling firmly on the wire. Then just push the wires into the new switch, into the marked holes.

I hope this helps! If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask!
