Go to www.HunterFan.com/FAQs and click “How do I properly install multiple remote-controlled fans?” for more information.


Turning off the power

Before installation, use the pull chains to set the fan speed to HIGH and the light to ON. Ensure the power is OFF at the outlet box and wall switch location before proceeding with installation.

To avoid possible electrical shock, before installing your fan, disconnect the power by turning off the circuit breakers to the outlet box associated with the wall switch location.

Removing the canopy
Remove the canopy. If uncertain how to remove it, reference the fan’s owner’s manual. With wiring exposed, it may be helpful to note existing wire connections or take a digital photo for reference. Remove the wire connectors that connect the wires from the outlet box to the fan, leaving the grounding wires connected.

Installing the receiver
Choose the hanging system that most closely resembles the one used by your fan, and install the receiver and wire as directed.
You may have installation issues if the fan is installed on an angled ceiling. For assistance, call 1-888-830-1326.
Note: Some fans may have considerable excess lead wire. For easier canopy installation, cut the excess wire, leaving a minimum of 8” remaining. Re-strip the fan lead wires 1/2”. Place remaining excess wire into the ceiling electrical box. The bracket and fan must remain properly grounded.

Examples of receiver connections


Note: If you are uncertain about wire colors or connections, please contact a qualified electrician.

Connecting the ground wires

Using an orange wire connector, connect the 3 grounding wires (green, green/yellow stripe, or bare copper) coming from the ceiling, downrod, and hanging bracket.

Wiring the receiver to the fan (continued)
Using the orange wire connectors, connect the blue wire from the receiver to the blue wire (or possibly black with white stripe wire) from the fan. Connect the yellow wire from the receiver to the black wire from the fan.

Wiring the receiver and fan to the ceiling

Using the orange wire connectors, connect the black wire (ungrounded) from the ceiling to the black wire from the receiver. Connect the white wire (grounded) from the ceiling to both the white wire from the receiver and the white wire from the fan.
AFTER ALL WIRES ARE CONNECTED and secured with wire connectors, re-install the canopy.Turn the splices upward and push them carefully back through the hanger bracket into the outlet box. Spread the wires apart, with the grounded wires on one side of the outlet box and the ungrounded wires on the other side of the outlet box.

Installing the battery

To access the battery compartment, remove the small Phillips head screw that secures the battery door to the remote control.
Replace the used battery with a CR2032 battery when necessary. The battery should be installed with the positive (+) side up.

Turning on the power

Reference the included remote function card for information on how to use your control!

The remote transmitter is already paired to the receiver and ready to use.

Note: If your need to pair your remote, remove the battery door. Cycle power to the fan by turning power off and back on at the wall switch (or circuit breaker if necessary). Within three minutes, press the pair button on the remote.
To prevent faulty operation, please disconnect power from all other ceiling fans within range while pairing.
