This would mean that that constant power to the fan and light is not wired through the switch right, or not wired into the switch at all. Most ceiling fans that have a light kit will have a Black, White, Green, and Red wire that comes from the ceiling and hooks into the fan and light. If it was done correctly, then the Green wire would be ground, the White is your neutral which is hooked to the other White wire, the Black wire is usually power to the light kit which will also hook to another black wire, and the Red is to the fan. Sometimes the Red and Black are reversed. If any of these wires are wired wrong, that could possibly lead to a constant power to the fan and light kit.

    A follow up question regarding this question. Everything is working fine (using the remote), except when I turn on the wall switch the light on the ceiling fan won't turn on without also hitting the light switch on the remote. Is there a way to make the default when power is supplied to the ceiling fan that the lights are on?

Can't have fan on and lights off.


What kind of wall switch do you have?? Unless it's a wall remote,you shouldn't be using it. The wall switch should be on for the remote to work correctly.

Connecting wires


You are just missing one wire to all the circuits. The ones that work are good ... add the one wire that is not hooking up to the others to complete a serial circuit.

What kind of wall switch do you have? Is it a remote wall switch? You can't use a basic Fan/light control with a remote.

Fan works, but not the lights, made electrical connections.


mcdevito75 here, The lights should work when the wall switch is turned on, You may have to remove the wall switch cover to check the color of the wires and then the cover just at the ceiling of your fan, follow the fan wires from the pull switch for the fan, since the fan works you don"t have to worry about those wires, just the others for the lights, match the color codes, from the wall switch to the light wires. You may have a RED from the wall switch and red from the fan, hook them togethet then the black or white wires. You may not have a red from the wall, rather a white and blck. Make sure wall switch is off and or fuse / circut breaker is off while working on the se wires.

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.

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.

Wall switch


I had this same problem (sort of) - my daughter lost the remote to our fan and it would not work from the wall switch. What you have to do is go up to where your fan is connected to the ceiling, slide the canopy down, and remove the remote transmitter. Then just rewire the fan normally - white to white, black and blue to black, and the ground wires together. Turn on the power and your fan light should work with the wall switch. You will have to pull the cord for the fan to work.
