Answer: 
You would have to not use the remote part of the fan. The black wire with the white stripe can be wired to a switch and the solid black wire for the fan can be wired to constant power.

The remote function is dumb. When you flip the wall switch, the fan loses all its settings. Turn the switch back on, and you have to use the remote to turn the freaking light back on. Hunter's solution is to leave the wall switch on and mount the unsightly plastic remote over the toggle.

The remote function is dumb. When you flip the wall switch, the fan loses all its settings. Turn the switch back on, and you have to use the remote to turn the freaking light back on. Hunter's solution is to leave the wall switch on and mount the unsightly plastic remote over the toggle.
So I opened the fan canopy and made a simple wiring change. I bypassed the remote receiver for the lights only by connecting the black wire with the white stripe directly to the black (hot) wire coming from the ceiling and just taped off the end of the red wire coming from the remote receiver.
Now, I flip the wall switch and the light comes on. I use the remote to control the fan only. The remote no longer controls the light, but who cares? Read Less

Answer: 
Depends on your wall switch's setup. If you have both a fan switch and a light switch on the wall and want to use both, then you can't use the remote - you'll have to skip that part of the install and wire it directly into your house's wiring. If you only have a light switch on the wall, you can wire this up as instructed, but the light switch will turn off both the fan and the light.

I am pretty sure you have to rewire it without the remote box. We are going to try it tonight but it sounds like someone already did it by the reviews. Don't see a way you can have remote feature and the light switch feature.

Answer: 
For model 28712 it is highly recommended to use remote only for this unit and eliminating the wall switch. Using the wall switch with this unit will cause a shortage in the receiver.

Answer: 
No, the box only comes with a 3" nub. The longer extension pole is sold separately. FYI, the factory wiring only extends 3 feet, so choose your extension pole accordingly.

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 82 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst purchase, expected much more from a Hunter The high speed moves air as the low speed of other ceiling fans, light buzz when turning on. Do not waste your money with this one. I regret to bought 5 of them. Average instalation. Looks nice. Quiet. But if the main purpose is to move air, this one is the worst ever seen. August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by High quality purchase Awesome purchase, super quiet fan, maybe a tad bit overpriced. Easy to put together and install, loving the remote from the comfort of my recliner. April 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hunter Highbury Ceiling Fan The remote control and switch included with the fan were previously used according to a licensed electrian. I am not happy that when buying a new product i receive a previously used one. February 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by High quality, low cost. Great fan!! Used these (2) for replacement of old (nasty) fan in kitchen and over the table in dining area to replace a really bad lighting fixture. These fans are gorgeous. Ease of installation is remarkable. We chose not to wire for remotes (we didn't need) as that procedure is a bit complicated. We would never have used the remote anyways. No problem. Look great, work fantastic and absolutely NO WOBBLE !! Love them July 23, 2011
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hunter 52" Ceiling Fan Nice looking fan, operates very quietly as I would expect from a Hunter fan. Installation is above average difficulty. I installed 3 of these at the same time, on one of the fans 2 of the cfl bulbs burned out in less than a month. December 17, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst purchase This is my second Hunter fan purchase this month. I had to return the last one and I will be returning this one too. Lights buzz when turned on. HORRIBLE smell after fan was running. Google the problem. It is apparently well known. http://www.consumeraffairs.com/homeowners/hunter_fans.html http://www.diychatroom.com/f18/new-ceiling-fan-smell-71934/ I had all three fans installed by a professional. Both Hunters had major problems. I would stay away from this brand. December 8, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good, until receiver burns out Bought 2 of these fans in 2011, and was very satisfied with them, until the receiver one day made a clicky noise and no longer turns on the light. It still works on the fan, but wont toggle the light. Limited lifetime warranty states they only cover the motor for lifetime and everything else is 1yr. Looking up the part online, it costs $35 for the Hunter 89532 receiver. I think I will need to rewire this fan to skip the receiver (like another reviewer mentioned) just so I can have light temporarily. Not sure whether to spend that amount to replace the receiver (which according to other reviews seems to be a common point of failure) or just buy a whole new ceiling fan altogether, since it may last longer. Might be worthwhile to budget an additional $35 when considering this fan if its common that the remote receiver tends to fail. October 25, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Weak and annoying This fan will move air around fine but if you want it to cool you down it is a joke. It may as well have one setting, for "high" is what low is on other fans. Also, you should know that you can't control the power with the room switch alone. Once you flick the switch you then have to press buttons on the remote, even just for the lights ... annoying. There is a holder that allows you to place the remote directly over your light switch, which I guess is to try to prevent you from flicking it out of habit, however, the holder is cheap and flimsy and likely wont last long. I'll be returning this and regret wasting 3 hours of my life installing it. June 28, 2013
