Grease the lubricated bearings of your Hunter ceiling fan at least once a year or if the blades start to stick or make a noise when moving.
Locate the oil hole on the Hunter ceiling fan. The hole will likely be located near the top of the ceiling fan motor and close to the down rod.
Bend the tip of a pipe cleaner into a 1/2-inch hook and place the tip of the hook into the oil hole opening. Hunter models aren't designed to use up oil quickly, but if the tip of the pipe cleaner comes up dry, you will need to measure out 1 ounce of motor oil, which equals two tablespoons, to fill the reservoir.
Add the measured motor oil to the oil hole with an eye dropper.
