I'll explain this the best I can.
We have identical Hunter fans in our living room, model # 20537, which is discontinued and impossible to find. Believe me, I've spent hours online and on the phone.
My wife doesn't want different fans in the living room. She wants them to match. You know the old saying, "When mama's happy, everybody's happy." So I'm trying to keep her happy. But I'll be damned if I'm buying 2 new fans.
Anyway, both fans came wired for the remote. The remote set-ups came with the fans.
One of the fans has problems. The fan works fine but light quit working. It won't turn on by the remote or the pullchain.
I pulled the non-working light kit out and put it in the other fan and it worked fine in the other fan.
I used a circuit tester and for reasons unknow, there is no power going from the lighting wiring coming down from the motor housing.
So I said screw it. I'm not taking the motor housing apart.
I located an identical fan someone is selling on craigslist BUT this fan did not come wired for a remote. It has a light kit attached but again, no remote.
Can I take that top bowl from the bad fan which contains the wiring for the remote and just stick it on the fan I found that is not wired for the remote?
Whew, I hope I made sense there.
