Question about Hunter Dryers
Here is a link to a common Hunter fan installation, with remote.
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.

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?
