To pair/sync a second remote switch to an existing Intertek 3177973 receiver, you will need to follow these steps:

  1. Turn off the power to the existing fan/light unit by switching off the circuit breaker or removing the fuse.
  2. Locate the "learn" button on the receiver. It is usually located on the back of the receiver or the control box.
  3. Press and hold the "learn" button on the receiver until the LED light on the receiver starts flashing.
  4. Press the "on" button on the new remote switch for about 5 seconds. The LED light on the new remote switch should start flashing.
  5. Release the "on" button on the new remote switch. The LED light on the new remote switch should stop flashing, and the LED light on the receiver should stop flashing.
  6. Test the new remote switch to make sure it is controlling the fan/light unit properly.
7. Turn on the power to the existing fan/light unit.
It's important to note that these steps are general guidelines, and the specific steps may vary depending on the model of your Intertek 3177973 remote control unit. Consult the manual for the specific steps and precautions before pairing or syncing on your remote control unit.

Hunter ceiling fan/light unit install with 3 pole switches. there are 2 white, 2 black and one orange wires coming out of the electrical box. How do i handle the installation?

Not understanding, three pole switch is a wrong switch, wires in the ceiling or wall electric box.
Needed: What switch is existing and what wires are in the switch box and runs or groups in each run coming in as wire groups. Same for ceiling box, colors and wires in each run coming in.
Basically, remove the existing ceiling fixture and connect the ceiling fan replacing the fixture to the same wires the fixture was connected to. White to white, green or bare to green or bare, colored wire to fan's blue and black. Wired like this one switch controls both fan and light, on and off at same time. Use fan pull chain switch for individual fan or light control.

I did not make a diagram when replacing the light switch

Red from switch goes to two blacks, blue from switch goes to two blacks and the black wire goes thru top of light and attaches to blue fan light wire. If you want a good fan, look for blade pitch(13 degree or higher)Or CFM's above 5500 on high.

After installation the whole fan wobbles. it is standard installation

The most important thing about installing a ceiling fan is to use the proper ceiling box, one that is approved and very firmly fastened to the ceiling joists. If this is not done and the fan is only attached to an existing ceiling box, it may end up being out of balance and wobbling, not to mention being very dangerous.

I am having a problem adding a hunter 28550 light to my existing hunter ceiling fan. The fan works fine but I can not get the light to work.

It's possible whoever installed the fan originally, did not connect the black/white striped wire to the electric box. Drop the ceiling canopy and let me know what you find.

How to install a ceiling fan where there is an existing light fixture

You should have been supplied with detailed instructions with the product. Contact your retailer to obtain a copy or contact the manufacturer directly.

Some fans are not as straightforward as others especially is there is a fan and light combination. Also some fans can safely be used with dimmer switches whilst others may not.

You will also need to make sure that you fix it to the ceiling beams / rafters as it needs more support than a standard light fitting due to its weight and the fact that it will vibrate when being used. It is also advisable to make sure that you use a rubber gasket around the base of the fan fitting where it meets the ceiling to prevent it making a 'booming' noise when it is used.

Want to install Fan and light control from one switch.

'define control'

anyway, that all the lights work together makes it simpler

most fanlights, updated by homeowners replace a lamp only unit, with on/off provided at the switch, and cable pulls on the unit to change speed direction of the fan

my favorite is paired dimmer switches, giving control separately of light and fan speed, fan direction still changes on the pull switch, requires 3 wires in the switch box, (power and 2 switched lines), to the lamp connector and fan motor connector, any sparky can pull the extra line with fishtape along the existing cable run. easy peasey.
Really good electricians pull three wire to light circuits, when the house is built or reno-ed. but you know how oftern that is gonna happen, 3 wire costs 3c more per foot, if there is 3 wire in the switch box -your home and hosed

or just for speed/dimmer control a dimmer switch can replace the existing single switch. but you still have to pull the cords to start the fans

its easy, with the caveat that you may kill yourself, or someone else, or burn the house down, if you dont do it right
