Question about Hunter Installer's Choice 21222 Ceiling Fan
I installed a Hunter fan this winter. Before installing, I tested that the wires coming out of the ceiling box (where the fan is mounted) were live when the wall switch was turned on. However, the fan doesn't turn on. I double checked to make sure the wiring harness was snapped in correctly, but no luck.
My question is: Is it more likely that the fan motor is dead (on the new unit) or the wiring harness is faulty, or something else. How can I deduce what the electrical problem is?
I have found in the past that when the splice caps were twisted onto the wires that they slip to the insulated part of the wire and looks as though it is connected actually is not. If you can get to the fan wires at the J-Box or ceiling fixture take the connection to the ceiling wires off and test the wires to the fan with an ohm meter to see if you have resistence reading. If you do not have a ohm meter take an extension cord and cut the female portion off and splice the wires to the fan wires. Make sure the cord will not hit the blades and plug the other end into a receptecale. If fan does not run then it is the motor wiring. Assuming you do not have a light kit since it was not mentioned. If you do and the lights come on then the fan wire was probably never hooked to that point.
