Question about Hunter 28486 Ceiling Fan

Open Question

25885 fan and CP-9110R receiver w/remote: where does the RED fan

Wire connect to? Light works with all other wires connected to like colors - fan does not work.

I have tried connecting the red fan wire(which apparently is wired to the actual fan) to black and black/white. In one case the fan works but there is a hum like something is energized, regardless of remote operation - in the other case fan does not work but there is a hum.

In summary, where do you connect the red fan wire to? Does it connect to any receiver wires or what? Hunter's web site is terrible - no support for "older fans" I guess they don't really expect their fans to last very long. No manuals, diagrams - nothing. Would it really be that burdensome to scan and store these items for the consumer? The answer is, of course, no - it is easy to do this. Welcome to the 21st Century, Hunter. Normally, I have every manual for everything I have ever bought... just not this - figures....

SOURCE: 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.

How are they connected in ceiling? If the blue wire from fan is connected to the red wire then the light wire from the switch would be the same. Since you have two blacks coming from the wall you'll have to connect the other wires until it's correct.

The red wire is the hot wire for your light so connect it to the black wire on your light. The white neutral wire should connect to your other white wires on fan power wires.

I am adding a light to a Hampton Bay fan. From the ceiling wiring I have a red and a green wire that are not connected. Is the red wire for the light and do I tie it in to the black wire to the fan for...


The green is a ground and the red is the hot wire for the light. One wire from the light kit is white and should be connected to the other white wire in the fan. The red wire should be the hot wire and gets connected to the black or blue (other wire) from the light kit. If you connect the two wires and the light does not come on, you need to find the other end of the red wire and make sure it is connected to a switch to give it power. The other end of the red wire is probably in the single gang box where the wall switch for the fan is located. Or you can tie the red wire for the light to the black wire for the fan and simply use the pull cord to cut on/off the light.

Wiring bath fan with Fan/ light combo. Want to operate the features on seperate switches. Have power wire Black/ White/Green. Each switch has own wire Black/White/ Green. In the unit there is a Blue/white...


If I understand correctly you are installing two wall switches.
Your switches are switch1 and switch2
Each switch has 2 brass-colored screws
If you have a double switch, see page bottom
And you are installing a fan/light combo with separate wires for fan and light.

Bare ground wires and green wires connect to each other and to green screw. A ground wire runs from fan/light to switch box where it connects to other bare copper wire and these wires will not be discussed.

Lets work from the fan/light down to the switch.

Blue-wire-fan connects to either brass screw on switch1
White-wire-fan connects to white Neutral (we'll talk about this wire as we go)

Black-wire-light connects to either brass screw on switch2
White-wire-light connects to same Neutral as White-wire-fan.

So you need 3 wires running from fan/light to your switch box.
One wire arrives at switch box and connects to brass screw on switch1
One wire arrives at switch box and connects to brass screw on switch2
One wire is the Neutral wire and it arrives at switch box and connects to other white wires inside switch box. Twist these wires together and cover with wire nut.

Now your white Neutral is connected to other white wires in switch box.
Each switch still needs another wire.

The Hot black wire from breaker box connects to brass screw on both switches

03fdf56.jpg
Pardon the crude drawing.
The switches would actually be located next to each other, but it was easier to draw like this.
Drawing shows 3 wires coming from fan-light to switch box.
The drawing shows the black and white wire arriving from breaker
The drawing does not show how the white wires are joined with a wire nut

If you have a double switch, with 2 switches stacked vertically.
The screw colors can be different.
Double switch could have brass screws on both sides, in which case your Load (fan-light) wires connect on one side of device, and your Hot from breaker connects to other side. It doesn't matter which side, but loads on one side, hot on other side.
Double switch could also have dark screw(s) on one side and brass screws on other side.
In this case, the black Hot from breaker connects to dark-colored screw(s)
And your Load (fan-light) connect to brass colored screws.

If you need more information, or if something is still confusing, answer back.

We just bought a house and the living room has a light fixture and there is a dimmer switch that controls it. I removed the light fixture and installed a ceiling fan but the fan barely moves and the light...


You're correct. The dimmer switch was not made for that fan.

The Green is ground > so you're right there too. I assume other plugs nearby are working when dimmer is on. Check that to make sure.

By your description, I assume there is NOT another switch or dimmer that connects to same light. If so, you need a 3-way switch and the following instructions are void.

I suspect when you wired the new fan, that you saw the red and small black wires in the ceiling box. Did you connect the fan and light to those wires? If so, the following information will help you wire the switch.

Your incoming Hot line is probably the larger black wire that connects to Dimmer black >>> this wire will connect to either screw on the new switch

To test Hot wire for sure: Take out dimmer and mark wires for identification. Separate wires. Turn on power and test each wire to bare ground. Tape tester leads to wood sticks so hands are away from power. You'll be fine. Tester lights up on Hot wire.

Next: The smaller black and a red wires are a toss up.

Here's how I would proceed. Connect the black Hot to either screw on switch. Connect red wire to other screw. Put wire nut over small black. Turn on power. Flip switch. Check both lights and fan to see which works with red wire.

Next reverse the toss up wires. Put wire nut over red. Connect small black to switch. Check both lights and fan.

If red and small black control the light & fan, then connect them together on the same screw, and you're done.

If you want to control the fan and light separately, buy double switch, and then Hot connects to dark-colored screw on one side of switch, and red and small black connect to two different screws on opposite side of switch.

Just tried to install the fan and light, it doesn't work when power is connected. I have 2 white house wires, none black. I have rechecked the connections, no power to the fan


the white wires are returns they dont supply power .. you may have to take the fan back down in order to find the black or red wire that supplys AC power .. a red wire would come from a wall switch .. the black wire would usually be 120 VAC .. be careful .. you must first turn off power before working with that live wire .. the white wires are always paired with a black wire and a bare wire (safety ground) .. perhaps the black wire just got covered up when the fan was installed .. the black (or red) house wire should be connected to the black and blue wires of the fan .. the white wires should all be connected together .. the bare wire should be attached to the green wire or bolted to the fan housing ..

Those connections sound OK ,, now you have to go to the canopy and see if all the wires for the fan/light are connected to a house wire. If there are two switches , then the blue fan wire would connect to the red wire .. it may be capped off in the ceiling. If there is only one control switch , then the blue wire from the fan will connect to the same ceiling wire as the black fan wire does.

Wiring for ceiling light


The wiring for a ceiling fan is usually pretty simple. The wires are connected color for color. that is black/lack, white/white , green to green or to the mounting bracket .. this color connection would also apply to the connections at the power source. If you have a light kit on the fan and two switches on the wall , then the red wire from the switch connects to the other wire on the fan, usually blue, if there is only one switch, or you are wiring it direct, then the black and blue wire both connect to the black power wire.

Trying to replace 3 speed ceiling fan switch and don't know which wires go where - 3 speed fan switch, 4 wire unit.


Hi
The pull switch has 4 wires, L, 1, 2, 3.
Connect ' L' to the reverse switch red wire or the wire that is free.
Connect ' 3 ' to the main black ( hot ) wire entering the fan.
Connect ' 1 ' to the capacitor's lowest uF eg. ( 1.5 uF )
Connect ' 2 ' to the capacitor's next uF eg. ( 3 uF )
the Capaciotr also has to be connected to the neutral wire entering the fan, usually black attached to another color wire. If you have a VOM tester, veryfy that it is a neutral wire.

Green and copper are the ground wires and I believe you can connect both these to the green wire from the fan (I only have the copper wire in the actual ceiling box). Black and Red can be treated as both black and both can be connected to the black wire from the fan (this is what I did in all my fans and it worked). White is the neutral wire and can be connected to the white wire from the fan (this is what I did in all my fans and it worked).

My ceiling box has the copper, red, black, and white wires. The ceiling plate for the fan I bought had a green wire. I connected the green wire from the ceiling plate and the copper wire from the ceiling box to the green wire from the fan.
