SOURCE: Check/add oil to a hunter ceiling fan

If you are asking for instructions on checking and possibly adding oil to a Hunter Original fan. Here are instructions:

Check oil level immediately after filling the reservoir. To check oil, bend an ordinary pipe cleaner into a 1/2" long hook and dip it into the oil reservoir.

If oil touches the end of the pipe cleaner, the fan has ample oil. If it does not touch, add SAE 10 non-detergent oil slowly until it touches the pipe cleaner.

-Hunter Original fans rarely/ never need oil unless they were relocated or tipped. ...Or if the fan was improperly installed.

-Hunter sells an oil refill / oil level check kit with good instructions. They also sell a relocation kit that includes the same kit plus all mounting hardware needed.

Good Luck!

SOURCE: Hunter fan wiring

sounds like one of your connections is loose. Im not sure if i completely understand your description of how you re-hoked up your fan. Please tell me how many wires your fan has and colors and how many wires you have on the sensor remote. (lots of times if you draw a wiring diagram on paper you can figure it out) Basically you should have power coming from ceiling to remote sensor. Then the remote sensor should throw the power to either the fan or the light, so there should be two seperate leads coming out of the remote sensor to control either the fan or the light independantly.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

SOURCE: Hunter ceiling fan remote 85095-01 stopped working

it also could be one of the the jumpers fell out of the remote
they are located just above the battery. you will need to match the placement of the jumpers with the receiver mounted in the fan.

Can you oil older ceiling fan

You cannot oil the unit. The bearings are sealed.

There are bearing in the fan but they are sealed. You could take it down and clean it real well. The bearings are hard to get to and the fan is not that expensive to replace.

A customer of mine has a very nice Hunter original ceiling fan that she never oiled and now the fan just hums and wont spin. Is it possible to repair after no oil damage is done?

Put some oil in and turn blades by hand to lubricate the bearings. If the motor is frozen, then you would have to take it to a service center or send back to Hunter for repair.

Hunter Old Thyme 22272 Ceiling Fan Internal Wiring

White to white (Nutural) Red to hot wire (usually black) &If you have two hot wires the blue(light wire) would go to the other hot wire. If you only have one hot wire you put the black & blue wire together and connect to the hot wire.You will have to use the pull chains for both if you only have one hot as the fan is an old two speed and they do not make a fan control for the wall for that fan anymore. Also ,you will have to oil the fan after you hang it.Only use the Hunter oil.

How do I oil my Hunter fan?

You don't. There's no place to oil ANY ceiling fan, not just the Hunter line. All ceiling fans use sealed ball bearings in the motors. They are lubricated for life. If you're experiencing a squealing noise, it would be best to take it down, pack if up and take it back where you bought it. No ceiling fan should squeal, let alone one as expensive as a Hunter.

Is sewing machine oil the same weight as ceiling fan oil?


First, how old is this fan, and secondly is it exhibiting symptoms of low oil? If it is, just adding oil is not enough, you should change the oil in it, by removing the fan, placing paper towels (lots of them) around the part which the blades attach to and turn the fan over dumping the oil into the paper towels.

If it is not having problems and you just want to top it off, use either the Hunter fan oil, or a product called "Zoom Spout Oiler" Both are a 10wt Turbine oil. I have also used 5w20 engine oil in these fans with no ill effects, but I don't recommend it.

If you have any more concerns, don't hesitate to ask.

Here's the manual to your fan.
