Faulty power-limiting devices are often the cause of ceiling fan lighting issues. These issues may include lights dimming, flickering, or not illuminating at all.

These devices are simple to replace, but replacements can be difficult to find. Luckily, these devices can be removed and your ceiling fan/lights operated safely, provided fan manufacturer recommendations for light bulbs are adhered to.

Power-limiting devices do just that—limit power. You may notice a slight uptick in your energy bill if you use your fan often.

This guide will show how to replace or remove the power-limiting device (Model No. 98480X; Part No. 98480-02) in the lighting circuit of a Hunter Baker Street Model #20713 ceiling fan.

    • Use a Phillips #1 screwdriver to remove the three 12 mm screws to separate the lower switch housing from the upper switch housing. .

    • The three screws are evenly spaced around the perimeter of the switch housing

    • Pull the lower switch housing straight down, with minimal force, to separate the lower and upper switch housing.

    • To remove the power-limiting device (Part No. 98480-02) from the circuit:

    • Loosen and remove the twist-on wire connectors.

    • Disconnect the terminal connectors.

    • If you are removing the power-limiting device, proceed to Step 7.

    • If you are replacing the power-limiting device, install the new power-limiting device in the same configuration as the old power-limiting device, and skip to Step 9.

    • Reinstall the light pull-switch into the circuit.

    • Terminate the hot and neutral wires with the appropriate wire bundle using twist-on wire connectors.

    • After the completion of this step, there should be 4 white wires connected bound with one twist-on wire connector, and 2 black wires bound using a second twist-on wire connector.

    • Wire color-coding in accordance with the NFPA 70 - National Electrical Code is applicable. White wires are designated as neutral wires, black wires are designated as hot wires.
