I just installed a ceiling fan but the darn thing turns soooooo sloooooow.
I called hunter tech support which is the worst i have ever seen.
the fan turns very slow on the fastest setting it turns as fast as the
slowest setting should turn about 50rpms. tech support told me that it
could be the reciver for remote. i dont think it is.
i think i may have to take the whole fan down again and check to see if all
the wires are making a good connection. i had a hard time with the 2 wires
that come out of the ceiling and am wondering if they are connected but just
a little loose would that cause the fan to turn sooooo slooooooow.
i did that search and came up with the bad capacitor. i hope it is located
in the reciever for the remote because that is what they are sending me.
tech support for hunter suck and the wire diagrams on both the web site and
in the box do not match the wires I have.
so i guess i can leave the wires the way they are and hope this capacitor is
located within the remotes reciever.
thanks to all for their help.
they are actually sending me the receiver that sits in the fan.
its not that I had an idea of what was wrong when I was talking to her (
hunters tech support)
I just didn't get the feeling she was going to get it right. and couldnt
see how it could be the receiver that was doing this.
I did get 2 of these fans and going to install the other one in the bedroom
I should have just came here. i will call their tech support again and
mention the capacitor to them.
i am sure if i hand them the answer they will send me the right part.
thank you again.
I hope you get a good answer on this, I have 2 identical fans on a
common wall switch, and when independently or simultaneously the one is
much much slower than its twin. Like you I could have made a boo boo
wiring it, but out of dozens I've installed, this is the only one with
The others have solved your problem, but for the record, you shouldn't
make a connection whose tightness you'll have any doubt about later
but I've never seen a case where a loose connection did something but
diddn't work completely. I'm not talking about a case where a light
goes on and off, but even that might prove my point. It may be so
loose that it goes off some times, but when it is on, it's usually at
full brightness. If it's not fully bright, it's because it's about to
I don't tape mine, but that's not because of qualms. Would I have
qualms about relying on tape to work after the wire nuts came loose?
I think so.
I don't think the wirenuts whould some loose.
There have been threads here involving other people than me about
wirenuts and taping.
BTW, I'm not a pro and only do a few connections a year, some years
i really thought the second fan was going to work :(.

the diagram looks fine except that it is missing a red and white white
comming out of the reciever.
i connected those wires to the red and white of the fan and then connected
those 4 wires to the white power wire.
also missing in the diagram is the white "neutral in" that i have connected
to 1 green ground wire in the ceiling plate and another from inside the fan.
