Have a Northport III 52" ceiling fan and can't figure out where to place the remote receiver. The installation manual says to place it in the upper canopy, but there's not enough room and after installing I can't secure the canopy. Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?:confused:
What receiver was purchased, Hope the person who bought for you, did not get the"Big"
receiver, they won't fit. Hire professional Electrician. I new you had less than 10 post, with the red mark you gave, then I saw 1, Sorry you had a bad day.
Use wall unit, maybe X10. Can be controlled anywhere.
Plus, If you did not curse, it will not fit.
I didn't pull my wires through the main part, I brought them around the sides. If you bring them right down the middle, they get in the way of slipping the receiver in the center. If you bring them around the sides, they seem to lay well at the top of the Canopy. Be sure to use the smaller, orange, wire nuts, they take up less room... make sure your wires are not exposed at all.
The yellow receiver box slide in the black hanger housing. This is the housing that screws onto the junction box in your ceiling. My junction box is very shallow, so I could not tuck the wires into the box. I routed my supply wires over the top of the black hanger and connected them externally, taping them for extra safety.
You may notice the yellow remote receiver has rounded ends. Slip the end with the brown antenna wire through the hanger first, and let the brown wire hang out of the canopy for best reception. In my humble opinion the instructions were below par!
I would post a picture of how I got the receiver to fit if I could.
The yellow covered remote control receiver in the fan box is simply too big to fit in the decorative mounting bracket cover. The directions mention a receiver mounting bracket, that was not there, and wouldn't have fit inside either. Anyone had to deal with this yet? Instructions attached.
I installed a Hunter ceiling fan with a Hampton Bay remote. The remote controls the fan correctly. The light works when pulling the chain but does not work from the remote. I wired the blue wire from the remote to the black/white striped wire from the fan. Any suggestions?
