Wiring a ceiling fan with a remote sensor

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?

    The receiver for the remote control of our fan has a total of 5 wires - 3 are on one side: black motor, white motor, black light. The other side has two wires: black ac IN and white ac IN. There are only three available wires in the fixture that match the 3 wires on one side. Are the two other wires necessary or can they be nutted off? The fan is a Casa Endeavor and the instructions are very unclear.

    Thank you.

Since you have a remote, you don't need that extra wiring for the light/fan. just wire nut it off.
the switch at wall has 2 switches but only one will work now.

How to eliminate receiver/transmitter in hunter 28425


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.

Hunter ceiling fan fan is working but lights are not


Make sure light wire is connected at the ceiling & at the bottom. Otherwise it's probably the receiver. 1-888-830-1326 ( Hunter parts )

Hunter fan wiring


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.

Fan with light (no remote) with wall switch not a 3-way


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!

Two fans, remotes work with one, not the other


YOU MUST TRY CHANGEING THE CHANNEL ON THE REMOT AND TRY IT THEN IF IT DOES NOT WORK YOU MUST TAKE DOWN THE FAN AND CHECK WHAT CHANNEL THE RECIEVER HAS AND MATCH IT TO THE REMOTE.
