It should be white wire to white wire and black wire to red wire. black and red are always the hot wire. but turn off power before working on it, or it will be a shocking experiance. if only white and black wire, white to white and black to black. this should do it. have a good day !

We purchased the Hunter Ceiling fan over a year ago and it has worked fine up until a couple of weeks ago. When we turn on the light it just continuously blinks on and off.

there is a watt governor, or black box for the lights to cut down on wattage or energy use. you can remove the black box for the lighting, and wire it directly to the main wires. white wire to white wire, and black wire to red wire. black and red are always a hot wire and white is a neutral wire. the part number on black box should be 98480-02. this should stop the lights from blinking. have a good day !

4 month old Hunter 52". After install, when you turned on the tulip lights that came with it, they would come on bright, then dim about 20%. Recently, when the light was turned on, they would blink...

Your problem is you are using too much wattage for your fan. You can solve this one of two ways. Put in lower wattage light bulbs (per your manufacturer recommendations) The other is to remove the wattage governor. There should be 3 screws holding your light assembly on. Remove these screws then disconnect the white rectangular plug in connector (this is what connects the fan wiring to the light assembly wiring). At this point you should be free to take the light assembly to a table. Follow the light pull chain wires from inside. One of these wires will lead to a black box that has 1 black wire, 1 red wire and 2 white wires. Remove this black box...this is the wattage governor. Remove by cutting the 2 white wires as close to the box as you can, peel back the insulation and use a wire nut to connect the 2 white wires together. Remove the wire nut on the black wire from the switch to this black box. Now you have one red wire left and your bare black wire from the switch. You will remove the red wire and put the bare black wire from the switch in it's place. Throw the wattage regulator in the trash and install you light assembly back to the fan. It will no longer blink but you should still use the recommended wattage light bulbs to prevent overheating.
