Trouble Shooting Tips - Light

Light will not turn on - Make sure globe has not blown and it is properly fitted
between the metal prongs. Check all light wires in the light kit, the terminal block
in the canopy cover and the wall switch has been connected together correctly.

Light is not responding to remote control- Make sure globe has not blown
and it is properly fitted between the metal prongs. Check all light wires in the
light kit, the terminal block in the canopy cover and the wall switch has been
connected together correctly. Check dip switch settings in remote hand piece
and remote receiver correspond.

Light wires appear to be missing or too short - Wires may be stuck in the
motor housing. Carefully pull wires out of the motor housing, careful not to strip
the wires as this may cause the fan to short.

Light flickers or flashes - Check globe is secured between the metal prongs in
the light kit. Make sure you are using the globes specified.

NOTE: If the extension rod needs to be shortened, cut the rod to the required length and drill
the appropriate hole size to fit the ball joint pin. The cut end of the rod should be used on the
ball joint end only. When installing a 1.8m extension rod the wiring will need to be extended and
joined. This should be done using crimp style connectors.

Trouble Shooting Tips - Fan
Fan will not start

Check that the reversing switch is pushed fully into Summer or Winter position.

Check wire connections in the wall switch and terminal blocks, ensure all wires
are making proper contact.

If it is a Typhoon fan, check and ensure the reversing switch plate under the
switch cover is not bent, also check the 3 wires coming from the switch plate are
straight. Occasionally the switch plate may get bent during transportation, this
allows the switch cover to press against the plate and stop the fan from working.

If it is a Typhoon fan, check the nine pin plug under the switch cover is properly
connected and the colours on the plug are corresponding.

If it is a Concept fan and it has an external start up capacitor, check that this
external capacitor is properly connected.
Fan speed is not corresponding to the wall controller

Check the speeds on the wall controller has been wired correctly and are making
proper contact. Brown = speed 1, Purple= speed 2, Red = speed 3.

Check wires in the terminal block are connected properly, connection wires
should be stripped back at the connection point and unused wires should be
sealed and capped off.

Check that the reversing switch is pushed into its Summer or Winter position.
Fan is not responding to the remote control

Check for flat battery. Make sure the dipswitch settings in the hand piece and the
remote receiver for the same fan are corresponding.
Fan is wobbling

Check the ball joint slot is locked into the hanger bracket groove.

Make sure blades are a matching set; the letters on matching sets of blades
should be identical with the numbers varying within 3 grams of each other.

Check blade screws are tightened firmly. If necessary use balancing kit provided
to settle the wobble.
Fan is noisy

Check all screws and parts are secured firmly. Ensure there are no loose parts
moving inside the motor housing.

Make sure the fan is installed with a Hunter Pacific wall controller only, do not use
solid state controllers as they can cause unpleasant motor noises.
