Yes, it might be. many variable switch units burn out. can you send a pic of the front of the switch then I can be sure.

Hi Does the light fixture have a globe under the fan? What does the light fixture look like? Most of the light fixtures have small screw surrounding the globe that simply unscrew and the globe drops down. All fans are different and I will have to know what this one looks like. In the mean time I will look at some hunter fans on line and see what I find.

How to wire this fan


The wiring on most paddle / ceiling fans id such:

White = Fan and Light neutral or "common"
Black = Fan line voltage or "hot"
Blue = Light line voltage or "hot"
Green = safety ground

If you are replacing an existing light fixture - be sure to replace the ceiling box with one designed for use with a fan - as per electrical code. If the existing box had only 2 wires (or 3 counting the ground) that connected to the old light fixture and it was controlled from a wall switch, the wiring would be fixture white to ceiling white, fixture black and fixture blue to ceiling black (or red) and fixture green to ceiling bare ground or connected to the metal box. This would power both the fan and light whenever the wall switch was on and the pull chains for each were also on. This is also the preferred wiring for replacement of a pull chain type light fixture (no wall switch present).

If there are other wires in the box that previously were not connected to the old light fixture, using a meter or tester - determine if there is constant power between the ceiling white wire and any of the these other wires (test with the wall switch on and off to be sure). If you do have constant power available, you might consider using the wall switch to control only the light, and using the pull chain to operate the fan (or vice-versa). Simply connect the black (for fan) or the blue (for light) to the "constant power on" wire and that part of the fixture will work by pull chain only - regardless of the wall switch position. If the fan can be shut off by the wall switch, it is very important that the wall switch remain a toggle (or on / off switch), do NOT replace with a dimmer type switch.

If you'd prefer to operate the fan and light completely independently of each other - you can purchase a 3rd party fan & light remote control device for between $30 - $50.

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

I have a two wire (black white) ceiling wiring and the surveyor fan has four - black white, blue and green. How can I connect so that the wall unit can control speeds and light turns off and on without...


If you hook the black ceiling wire to the black and blue ones on the fan and the white to the white and green to the box it mounts to it will turn on and off with the wall switch and you'll have to use the switches on the fan to turn the light/fan on and off separately. Alternately, you could purchase a remote unit and install it according to the directions. Also, make sure you if you are replacing a light fixture with a fan that the box is strong enough to support it. Good luck.

You are causing a short when you flip the switch because it is connecting your hot wire and your neutral together, but I need more info before I can be more specific. I assume this was not the type of fan/light where the fan is controlled by a pull chain, and there was only one switch on the wall. Correct?
So there had to be at least one extra wire at the light fixture. What did you do with that?
You would have had an extra switch (or speed control) on the wall. What did you do with that?

If you removed the extra wall switch, what did you do with those wires?
Is there a 3-way switch involved? (is there more than one wall switch to control the same light fixture?)
Thanks for using fixya, I'll be glad to help further.

Hunter ceiling fan-just installed -possible speed control problem


Sounds like the fan is defective. All internal wiring from the switch to the motor is factory installed. The fan has power going to it. Just to make sure, double check the wiring from the ceiling fixture to the fan.
Problem could be a faulty switch on the fan or faulty motor(bad winding for med. speed). Try reverse switch on the fan to operate the opposite direction and see if medium speed works. If medium does work in opposite direction, it pretty much points to a defective fan. In any case, unless you discover that the ceiling wires were reversed going into the fan, I'd say new fan to the returns dept.
