How to Wire Ceiling Fan with Remote?

625 Views 3 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  diyorpay
I bought 2 ceiling fans. I wired both of them as shown in the photo below. The first one downstairs worked perfectly. The light is controlled by the switch (on/off) and then the fan is controlled only by the remote.

However, I wired the second fan in the bedroom like this and now the light is always on - does not shut off but the fan is correctly controlled by the remote. I do not understand what I did wrong. I need to figure out how to make it so the light goes off with the switch on the wall. Can someone please advise?

When the switch is ON, the remote controls the fan right now and is able to turn it on and off. Also, when the switch is ON and OFF, the light is permanently on.

I prefer to use the wall switch for the light and remote for the fan, yes. Does that help? There are two wall switches, one for the previous ceiling fan light only (fan controlled by chain) and one switch to turn power on to lower outlets.
