This sounds like a normal condition. There is more load when you start the light and running through a dimmer, I would expect what you describe as the load in increased.

Help. I need help properly connecting wires on a new ceiling fan.


Usually, the fans with remotes will dim the lights by holding the light button for a few seconds. So, the red wire would stop this feature if wired directly to the fixture. That would eliminate the wire coming out of the receiver for the lights. If you want the light to dim, then tape off the red wire, so the remote will dim them. The wall switch won't work anymore. If you want to connect the red wire , tape off the wire from the receiver that connects to the light sockets and connect the red wire to the wire for the light sockets. This will operate the fan but the remote will not dim the lights. If you have a motor speed controller in the wall from the old fan, remove it and replace it with a switch or eliminate the switch altogether so the remote will control the fan speed.

Hunter ceiling fan remote will not turn off light it just dims the light


Try this. Remove power from the fan. Remove batteries from the remote. Press butttons on remote (might be stuck). Apply power to the fan. Install batteries in the remote and try all functions. If this doesn't work, the remote may be defective or the remote receiver may be defective. I can tell you from my own experience I have a ceiling fan that loses its mind whenever there is a power outage. Has to be reeducated from scratch

Hunter fan light switch won't turn off light


by looking at the sw. it looks like u can only put it to a low dim and not off and the button at the bottom is all off including the fan if this is correct u should be able to change to a different kind of fan sw. combo or even a remote style that comes with a receiver ,also your fan should have three wires at the box a light wire "blue" a fan wire "black" and a neutral "white" oh and a ground "green" in order to switch these separate u need those 3 wires at the sw. also . but with a remote u only need the hot and neutral it hooks up in the box or canopy of the fan to the receiver all wires are marked for easy installation turn power off to be safe u can install a regular sw. to over ride the remote and turn power off at the fan .......its alot i know but hit me up if u need more help.

yes this is because the dimer is giving the light less power.you just need to change the switch to a single switch then your dimer will work right all the time. good luck

I need help hooking up my bathroom fan and light i have three wires going to the bathroom fan and light white black and ground i want a swith to turn off the bathroom light one to run the light to the fan...


Right now a single switch turns on both light and fan.
You want to put in a double switch to control light and fan separately.

But the problem is there is not a separate wire to each the light and fan.
You need a separate wire to each, but the circuit wasn't wired that way.
Usually when the circuit is wired for separate control, there is a red wire that also goes to ceiling box.

Unless you run another wire to the ceiling box, it won't be possible to control light and fan separately.

Electrician can do this pretty easily if there is attic space above bathroom.

I have a hampton bay ceiling fan which will only run on the fast speed. I have changed switches but still only the fast speed. I have touched each wire to the load wire to see if it was the swith but no...


Hello Brother,
Installation:
Hang your ceiling fan on the Quick Connect fan bracket and wire the ceiling fan according to the manufacturer's instructions. The three wires coming from your ceiling should match the three wires coming from your ceiling fan: black (positive or hot), white (neutral or negative) and green (ground wire).


Use the high, medium and low keys on the remote to adjust the Hampton Bay fan speed, then use the light key to dim the light and the off key to turn off the fan.


For REMOTE CONTROL FANS you cannot use with any variable speed or slide wall switches. The remote control function must be used with on & off switch outlets only.
