    the wires are yellow, pink,grey, red, black/white stripeand white
    the instruction in the fan manual read as follow :
    • Connect the yellow wire from the fan to the yellow wire from the receiver.
    • Connect the pink wire from the fan to the pink wire from the receiver.
    • Connect the grey wire from the fan to the grey wire from the receiver.
    • Connect the red wire from the fan to the red wire from the receiver.
    • Connect the black wire with a white stripe from the fan to the black wire with a white stripe from the receiver.
    • Connect the white wire from the fan to the white wire
    (LIGHT OUT) from the receiver.
    remember I want to connect a universal remote with the following wires:
    red-line in
    white- ac neutral
    white- motor neutral
    blue - light
    black - to motor live
    thank again for caring..

    What Iàm saying is I bougth a universal remote receiver and transmitter to replace the one on my hunter 21627 ceiling fan and the wiring is different refer to prior explanations to see the difference. the remote has its documentation and I have no problems understanding it. but the wiring from the fan to the old reciever is what Is not documented and what I need to know what each wire is for.

Here is a link to a common Hunter fan installation, with remote.
http://www.cpohunterfan.com/documents/manuals/hunter/h27185.pdf
But I can't quite tell what you mean?
Are you telling us the original fan was a Hunter 21627, and that you bought a replacement that was universal and not a Hunter?
Or are you saying you bought the Hunter 21627 as the replacement?
Almost always the wires come tagged so that you can tell what each is for.
And you can also tell to a large degree from the old wiring.

Basically the receiver for the remote needs power and ground in order to work, which should be black and white. So before doing anything with the actual fan itself, get a test cord and wire up the remote to a wall plug, for testing. If nothing else, you don't want to be taking the fan up and down, only to later discover the receiver or transmitter does not work. Plus you may want to change the signal channel, if it collides with one already installed. I have forgotten to alter the channel dip switches in the past, only to find that the remote turned off and on all the fans in the entire house.
What then can be different colors are the wires coming out of the receiver, to go to the lights and fan speeds. If there are 3 speeds, then with the lights that would be 4 power output wires of arbitrary color. But the colors do not matter. You can tell which is which simply by activating the control and using a test light or inductive senor on the output leads of the receiver. Once you have identified all the outputs, then write them on tape attached to each lead. You will need that information again some time in the future.

    If the old fan wiring is the problem understanding, it would help to know what the old fan make and model is, but not necessary.
    The same system I described will work for the fan as well.

    Take it down and take the blades off so that you can more safely experiment on it.
    Don't even bother with the remote receiver at first.
    First just connect the common ground of the fan to the incoming white wire.
    (you can just use a test wire, like an extension cord cut off and has bare wires )
    If you can't tell which is the fan common ground based on color, you could tell with an ohmmeter, because there would be some current flow between it and any of the other fan wires, such as each of the 3 speed wires and the light wire.
    Once you have the ground connected, you can then just touch the power lead to each of the other fan wires, one at a time, and see what gets turned on. There will be fan speeds and lights.
    Label with tape, once you know what each does.
    (I have also been ignoring the green safety external ground, since that is usually uninsulated or otherwise obvious.)
    If you are worried about using live wires, then you could unplug, connect the wires, and then plug in, one at a time. You can also increase safety by wearing gloves, and hand the fan from a ladder with a coat hanger, so that it won't hit the floor or anything else when the motor spins.

    The only wires you need to figure out are the 3 (or less) motor speeds, the lights, and the common ground. You could figure out the lights by tracing them up to the light socket. The motor speeds are not that critical. The common ground is easy to figure out because of the fact it is common to all the speeds and the light.

Usually when colors dont match the best thing to do is to refer back to the universal electrical color coding. Normally electrical appliances come with three cables for power. They are usually red, black and yellow. The red stands for live although some appliances come with a brown replacement for this and at other times a combination of colors but usually the contain either brown or red.
The black cable on the other hand is sometimes replaced by a blue or green cable and when it is mixed with other colors it usually contains one of the other three colors(black, blue or green) this cable represents the neutral cable.
Finally the last one is the earth cable and come in a variety of shades. Once the first two cables have been located the last is always the earth cable.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Lights come on at random .has a remote how to fix ?


The fan remote control receiver used in the Hunter 25730 model fan (see picture) is not available from Hunter. Remove the fan from the ceiling. Remove the receiver and take it to recycling. It can be replaced using a readily available and inexpensive replacement universal remote and receiver controller. There are limitations though. The Hunter receiver provided fan reversing functions. The universal controllers do not. You therefore have two options.

Option 1: The universal receiver can be installed such that the fan direction is fixed, either up or down, all other functions operate normally.

Option 2: A reversing switch can be purchased from Radio Shack for about $4 and installed in the fan. This does require cutting a square hole and drilling two bolt or rivet holes in the side of the cylindrical housing which previously housed the Hunter receiver. I'd suggest the Radio Shack DPDT slide switch part number 275-403.

Refer to the wiring diagrams and connector pinout diagram for connections. Please note that the connector pinout diagram is the connector that is soldered to the circuit board as shown in the photo of the Hunter receiver. If your motor wire colors are different then with the connector unplugged from the receiver use a multimeter to probe all the motor wires in order to identify two pairs of wires that indicate approximately 70 ohms each pair. These will be the motor windings. 6b0a1409-5a20-4efe-a059-c600652e9512.jpg 5da8e4ef-1b54-40d0-a8a4-21d4608b1d23.jpg 9fc8772d-3ac3-41b7-aa55-78ccc6e5ea00.jpg 0759e340-6464-4c4b-90f5-6d9926e74e42.jpg

I've never seen a receiver with those colored wires unless it came with the fan. If it did, you probably won't be able to use it in this fan. Also, there is nothing Universal in the fan business no matter what it says on the box.

Hi Leanne,

Most fans have green, white, black and blue wires. Green is earth or safety ground, white is neutral, black is for the fan and blue is for the light fixture. Some fans may deviate from these commonly used colors in which case you should consult the instructions. Below are links to instructions for different Hunter remote fans, additional instructions for Hunter remote fans or you can look up your fan by model number or use. It appears that the built-in remote Hunter fans have no provision for controlling a light when the fan is wired from a traditional switch instead of using the included remote, as they have only a green, white and a single black that remains powered constantly to supply the remote receiver. The hand held remote transmitter tells the receiver to switch power to the fan motor and light bulbs as needed.

It is possible that the transmitter or receiver you're using in this room is not working. Try using one of the other remotes with the non-working fan by matching the code of the remote to the fan. If it doesn't work, try selecting a different code on the fan and match it on the remote (in case there's a problem with that particular code in this location). Try all (or as many as you care) codes to see if any codes work with this remote.

By this time, you should have either found a working code with this remote and are all done, or still have a non-working fan. Since you have tried more than one remote - and know that one of them worked in the other room, suspicion falls on a faulty fan or integrated remote receiver. You can replace the fan if you like with a traditional fan and light and purchase an after market or third party RF remote control if you no longer wish to get an integrated remote receiver.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks!

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.

I will assume you checked the batteries? These units have sequence matched signals. The only way to confirm neither has changed is to check both. It works like a garage door opener. 4 pins must match each other. On the remote, this is usually found where the battery goes. You will see the 4 pins. Up or down is the only option for each pin. That was easy. The hard part is getting to the receiver in the fan. At the ceiling there is a cover for the wires. 2 to 4 screws hold it in place. Remove the cover and you will see the receiver unit...probably stuffed in there very tight. Carefully remove the receiver to expose the pins. Check that they match the remote sequence. If they do not match correct to match and all should be good. If they match and the battereis are fresh, the remote or the receiver went bad. In which case you can get a universal, even by Hunter Fans at Home Depot or Lowes will work. Color match the wires if you are a DIY'r. Feedback is appreciated if this helped or not.

96 or108 inch downrod for a hunter ceiling fan


FIrst, go to the Hunter website and see if they make one. If they do, then go to their "Where to Buy" link, and see who sells Hunter products, and call them to see if in stock.

If worse comes to worse, got to a hardware store and buy a piece of black iron gas pipe the correct length with threads on each end. You will probably have to get cross holes drilled through the threads to match the short stub pipe that comes with the fan.
Buy some spray paint while there that matches the color you want.
Buy some stranded wire, enough to run the length of the pipe, plus the length of the fan, plus excess to extend beyond the end of the pipe and out the junction box of the fan. It would be best to buy a length of the following colors to match what is already in the fan, and that should be white, blue, and black.

Once home, clean the pipe with solvent, then paint to match with the paint you bought. After it dries, push the wires down through the pipe, and rest the fan near where the fan end of the pipe will be.

Open the junction box of the fan and pull the factory wires through the center shaft. Take the wires extending from the pipe and slide through the hollow fan shaft until they extend out the bottom. Cut each of the factory wires short, then strip the end, and the end of the new wire of the same color, and wire nut together. Do this for the remaining 2 wires.

Screw the pipe into the top of the fan, install the cross pin and cotter.

Move the hanging components from the supplied fan hanging stub to the new pipe, making sure to install exactly as removed from the stub.

Follow the installation directions from here.
