Hi,
If the fan will not shut off it is most likely not a wiring problem, but a problem with the switch not working properly...

the switch is stuck in the on position even though it may sound like it is working...

use an ohm meter to check the switch out...

The light on a fan is flickering. It doesn't appear to be the light bulbs. This fan has a remote control and it controls the fan OK and turns the light on and off but it flickers. What could be...


Try changing or testing the batteries in the remote or take the remote out of the fans range. See if this stops the flickering. It can also be the individual bulb. Sometimes the monofillament wires become loosened. It won't hurt the fan to use a broken bulb but it will shorten the life of the bulb. They do get the daylights shook out of them! If all the bulbs flicker it can be the twist connects. These are located under the ceiling plate cover. To check, shut off the fan or turn off the braker switch to make sure you don't get a shock (but I really doubt it). Remove the face plate ceiling screws to expose the wiring. There should be a black and a red cap that holds wires together. Black is ground red is power. One at a time hold the wires of the black cap with one hand and give the cap a gentle clockwise twist with your other hand to see if they need tightening. Repeat with the other colored cap. Push the wires back up inside the housing if needed and replace the cover.
These are the simpelist things to try before calling an expert. I hope this helps?

I have a hunter with 3 wires black white green how do I wire it to a three wire cable black red white ground the fan also has a light and remote but remote is Brocken want to use it with no remote model...


Black to Black - White to White, Green to Green (copper). Put a wire nut on the red wire.

The Black is suppose to run the light (or the fan) while the Red is suppse to run the fan (or light). The White is common and the ground is ... well the ground.

If you have a light kit on the fan, you can control the light and the fan separately ... or you can run them together.

Let me know how this comes out ...

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

I am tiring to install a GE touch auto shut-off timer, I have 2 wires in the wall 1 black & 1 white, the switch has 4 wires (1 green[ground?], 1 blue, 1 black & 1 white) when I try to follow the...


You might not be able to use that switch in your configuration. It appears that the power was run to the light and only two wires were run back to the switch. The old switch only closes to connect those two wires completing the circuit at the lighting fixture, but you need a hot and a neutral to operate the electronic switch that you have.

Hunter Fan Mod 21617-001, wire colors Black with white stripe/ Pink/Yellow/Red/Gray/Black/White. This has a floresent light, no chains or switches. The Pink serves the light. Note the wires are not labeled...


Red and white are twisted together,or however you combine wires.I use plastic wirenuts.Always twist clockwise as the wirenuts are most effective that way and the wires will stay together better.Black/white,yellow,and gray are the speeds yes,and the fan wires go to the receiver wires.It sounds like you do not have the receiver?If it isn't already built in,it should be small enough to fit within the smallest part of the fan base.The remote is the transmitter.Here is a link to show you the wiring.Red&white twist together for house power.Black for house ground.It also shows a THIN WHITE wire for the antenna.It is not necessary to hang it outside of the casing.You should make it spread out around the inside in a full circle,that should be fine.Just not wrapped tightly around the motor,loosely is better.It does show the antenna wire hanging out in the diagram.You can do that also,just make sure it isn't hit by the fan,and it will not cause a fire if pinched by the plate.If you do have all the wires connected,it shows that the dip switches on the receiver must match.Make sure the remote has the battery removed when changing these.When they are correct,there is no way to tell what the fan is set to and it could start moving.The dip switches are equivelant to radio stations.If you want 101.9FM,but it is set to 101.1FM,it won't come in.When the switches match,you are tuned in and hear 101.9FM.If you need more help,just comment here and I will get an autolink to your post and reply ASAP.Good luck,Greg The link looks universal for Hunter fans,all wired the same.

The blue should be for the lights and you can ty this into the black. The red should be the incoming for the motor to the fans. Some models are different and I strongly believe you have got to be talking about a ceiling fan and not a vacuum. Is this a test question? Because it is a darn good one if you do not mind me saying so however you might have not noticed to check or uncheck a box for the fans. Good luck.

No manual with my fan, trying to put the fan up, please advise


Kind of hard to help you with this little information you have provided, but this is what I would do. FIRST and most importantly, you MUST use an approved box hanger to hold the (I am assuming a ceiling fan) fan to the electrical box for connection. BE SURE THE POWER SOURCE TO BE USED IS TURNED OFF!!!!!! Determine the power wires for the fan unit (most likely a black, white and green wire) and, observing the proper polarity, connect to the house wiring. Make sure you are using an equipment ground to the fan. This is usually a bare or green wire. If these instructions are not clear to you, you may want to have a professional install the unit. You should also check with your local municipality about the need for a permit to do this installation.

I would guess that the black wire on the timer is the power in and blue is the power out to the fan (hook it to the black wire going to the fan) The other colors are right.
