My have a hunter ceiling fan with remote control.it comes on with the wall switch ,but the lights and remote control won't work .can someone please explain why?


Try changing the dip codes in the receiver & transmitter. I wouldn't advise putting in the same code for both fans. Also, you might need new receivers.

My remote lights up when you press the button but it's not controlling my fan.


Controlling a ceiling fan/light using a wall switch causes the remote control to lose its memory. You will have to start all over at the beginning. Remove batteries from the remote, push all buttons to eliminate a stuck button as a cause, then reinstall batteries but do not push any button yet. Be sure all wall switches are off. Go to the power source for the fan/light (not the wall switch) and turn it off. Wait briefly, then turn on the power at the source again. Try remote operation. If successful, use only the remote to control operation. Forget about using the wall switches.

If you have a remote then you can't use the dimmer switch on the wall. Put in an on/off switch.

Dimmer not working but the light does come on.


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.

Does the red wire coming out of the ceiling go to the blue wire in the fan. i cant get the lite kit to come on


The white wire in your ceiling box is USUALLY the neutral wire. Green or bare wires are ground wires. Any other colored wires are generally hot, switched or unswitched. If changing the position of a wall switch makes a white wire hot, it is NOT a neutral wire. You need a test light, generally an inexpensive neon test light available at any hardware store, and a book on basic wiring would help. To control the fan and light separately, assuming you have not installed a wireless control, you need two switches, one for the fan and one for the light. If you do not have these, you need a wireless control unless you have a spare wire in the wall switch box or you need to be satisfied with controlling the separate functions with the pull chains. Check the ceiling box wires. Put one lead on the ground wire or, if you have steel boxes, on the box. Remove the wire nuts on the other wires, being careful not to touch any wires or touch any of the wires to each other or the side of a metal box. Touch the other lead to the other wires, one by one. If the light comes on, the wire is hot. Try the wall switch(es) on and off and see what changes. To make the fan or light work it has to be hooked up to a neutral wire (white, never hot regardless of any switch positions) and a hot wire. The same is true for the light kit. If you do not have or want two wall switches, one for the light and one for the fan, you need to identify the wire that is hot when you turn on the wall switch and hook it up to the black (fan) wire AND the blue (light)wire. You then control both with the single wall switch in conjunction with the pull chains. If you have two switches in the same wall box, and they make two different wires hot in the ceiling box, hook one to the black fan wire and one to the blue light wire. If you're set up with only one switch, and you're lucky, you may have an extra wire in the same cable from the ceiling box to the wall box, with a wire nut on each end. In that case, install a second switch for the light (or a combination switch designed to control both a fan and light). Hook the hot wire from the wall box to both switches (or the hot terminal on the combination switch) and the other two wires to the other two terminals that go to the ceiling box to feed the light and fan. Never use a light dimmer switch to control a fan or a fan speed switch to control a light. If two or more switches in different areas controlled the original fixture in the ceiling box, things can be complicated. If the same wall switch makes two different wires hot depending on it's position, for example, it's a three or four way switch. The above description also assumes the wall box is fed from the ceiling box, but the opposite may be true. There may also be wires in either box that are feeding other circuits in the house. Electricity can kill or burn down your house. If unsure of what you are doing, hire a licensed electrician. Also be aware that if you touch the leads of the test light to two wires that are both hot, the light may not come on. Always test with one lead on a ground or a wire that you are sure is a neutral wire. I recommend tuning off the power to all the circuits in the boxes that you are working on, after you have determined what the wires are, by shutting off the circuit breaker(s) or removing the fuse(s). There may be more than one circuit in a box.

Can't control light at switch


It is wired so that you control the light with the remote. You cannot have it both ways. You either control it with the wall switch or the remote. Once you kill the power to the receiver by turning off power at the wall switch, you are only applying power to the receiver when you turn power back on. You are not supplying power to the light. You then must turn on the light with the remote. This is the purpose of a remote fan/light control. You could rewire it to control the light with the switch and only control the fan with the remote if you wish, but as you have it now, it is working correctly.

Installation


I assume that you're talking about a remote-controlled ceiling fan.

There are two parts to a remote-control setup -- the transmitter (the switch which you use to operate the fan and/or light), and the receiver (which receives the signals sent by the transmitter, and directly controls the fan and/or light).

The receiver -- which should look like a plastic rectangle, usually white, grey, or orange-brown in color -- can be identified by the fact that it has several colored wires coming out of it, and doesn't have any buttons. This is mounted in the ceiling fan itself. On nearly all setups, it goes inside the canopy (the decorative part of the ceiling fan, up by the ceiling, which hides the fan's electrical wires).

The transmitter may be either hand-held like a television remote control, or in-wall mounted like a light switch. If you have the hand-held variety, there is nothing to install in a wall box. The wall-box wires should be appropriately connected up, and a blank cover plate should be put on top of the gang box.

If, on the other hand, you have the in-wall variety of transmitter, then yes -- it gets mounted in the wall, in a gang box, like a normal light switch or outlet.

If you need any further clarification, please feel free to ask!
