I am replacing a existing ceiling fan in our living room with a Hunter 101264, comes with remote. Connected the wires from the ceiling to the sensor black to black, white to white, grounds, but it does not say what to do with the red wire coming from the ceiling?

Open the box at the bottom of the ceiling fan, where the switch is. You should find the receiver inside there. You'll find one white wire connected to it, and two black wires also connected to it. Remove the white wire completely or cap it off with a wire nut. Connect the two black wires to each other with a wire nut. Reassemble the ceiling fan. If the problem was the receiver, then the problem is now gone because the receiver is gone.
sounds like one of your connections is loose. Im not sure if i completely understand your description of how you re-hoked up your fan. Please tell me how many wires your fan has and colors and how many wires you have on the sensor remote. (lots of times if you draw a wiring diagram on paper you can figure it out) Basically you should have power coming from ceiling to remote sensor. Then the remote sensor should throw the power to either the fan or the light, so there should be two seperate leads coming out of the remote sensor to control either the fan or the light independantly.
The remote might have wrong orders. Get the battery out and insert it back and see if the problem solved.
Do you set the dip switchs correctly on the fan and on the remote? Numbers set must be matched. Otherwise, the fan won't work either.
Unless you want to use pull chains, you will either have to get a different fan with a remote, or you can buy a remote to ADD to an existing fan/light. It hooks up under the base of the lamp. They seem to work better than the factory fans with the built in remotes.
Sounds like you could have a problem with the fan....but there is also an equaly good chance it's the wiring of the fan. Perhaps a loose connection. If you are not familiar with checking electrical connections, you probably need to call an electrician to check the wiring SOON, before there is a short. If all connections are good, then you will know it's the fan (or the remote receiver on the fan).
Hope this helps!
I have an existing ceiling fan with an add on remote control. Does anyone have a wireing digram or can tell me how to wire it up. The switch on the wall kills all the power coming to the fan. I have the color wires wired together(pink to pink , etc.) It is a hunter add on divise. Model # CP911OR
