If its running leave it alone its probably a connection for a different model. companies use standard wiring harnesses for most of there bikes and just omit some wires for different bikes.

I am trying to install a ceiling fan and from the ceiling I have a copper white and black wire. Now from the fan itself there is a black blue and white wire. Not sure where to connect the copper wire.


Good question, proper wiring is a crucial virtue that needs to be one hundred percent accurate.

Three wires showing from the ceiling lamp fixture harness, positive, negative, and ground.

The negative wire is the white wire,
The Hot wire (positive) is the wire of brighter color than known negative,
220V AC (alternating current) home wiring to(" duplex outlet switch, GFI switch, single/dual pole light switch, lamp fixtures,") the Hot wire or lead, is normally Black, the lighter color, or White is neutral or neggative,
Neutral wire (completes circuit) allows current flow to continue through to other parts of house, Alternating current.

The Ground wire is usually wrapped in green color, or unmarked copper.

The copper wire from the ceiling will need to be grounded to the metal bracket on the new light fixture, a gold or silver screw, sometimes tagged with green, is the proper grounding location, Any place on Metal not attached to ceiling bracket, Ground should be attached to metal on fan,

White wire from Fan is neutral, Negative.
Black wire from Fan is Hot Wire, Positive,
If Blue wire from Fan is Not Manufacture spliced, Meaning no Copper is exposed, Wire is not used, Blue wire is NOT ground,
If Fan has a light, Voltage from Hot Black wire will supply both light and fan functions,

Safety First.
flip off breaker switch to the room fan is being installed.

Doubble Check
Black^Black wire connection is secure.

White^White neutral wire connection is secure.

Ground is fastened securely to metal or wrapped under a screw.

Using splice caps is recomended, The plastic shell encloses the wire connection ensuring No stray copper is exposed, limits possibility of cross wiring.

Google the brand of fan being installed, and Check wire color code, and wiring diagram, Info good to have, and checking twice will only guarantee Lamp Fixture Install Well Done.

(Blue wire may be there for installing multiple ceiling fixtures in a loop circuit, so all controlled by same light switch.)


Enjoy Your New Fan,

Jos

Kenmore air conditioner115 volt. Three wire replacing power plug


green wire to the green grounding screw, white (neutral) to the silver screw, and black ("hot") to the brass screw.

Make sure all connections are neat and tight- no stray pieces of wire. Use a plug rated for 15 amps.

My1987 nissan pickup altrnatorwill not pull a charge, there is black wire connection that is under the boot. my black wire is just hanging there and not connected to anything but the alternator. where does...


Ground (almost always the black wire). Locate three or four connections on the alternator, depending on the type. One wired connection is black; another red; and the other can be blue, yellow, green and brown. The red and black wires are the main electrical connections. The others go to your ignition warning light system and voltage regulator.

Ensure the red wire is tightly connected to the alternator terminal. It usually is attached by a bolt. Move the wire to see whether it's loose; there shouldn't be any movement. If the wire is loose, tighten the nut using a suitably sized wrench.

Ensure the black wire is securely attached. It usually is connected to the alternator terminal using a bolt. Check whether the wire is loose; it should not move. If it does, tighten the nut using a wrench.

Hope helps.

Hi have a honda cbr 100f on a 1990 cant get a spark from it any help


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, for a no spark concern on a 1990 Honda CBR1000F, checks would be on:
  • presence of ignition +12 on the black/white wires to the ignition coil;
  • presence of pulsating voltage on the yellow/blue and blue/yellow wires to the ignition coil;
  • presence of pulsating low voltage between the yellow and white/yellow wires coming from the ignition pulse generator;
  • status of light green wire from neutral switch/indicator;
  • status of green/white wire from sidestand switch; or
  • try starting with the sidestand folded up and/or the clutch lever pulled in.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

No spark .ck'd wiring, is there common problem on these with spark?


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To my understanding, all of the CR250R wiring has to do with the ignition system. Initial checks:
  • disconnect the black / white wire from the engine stop button to the CDI;
  • pulsating low ACV on the blue / yellow & white / green wires from the pulser coil;
  • pulsating high ACV on the blue & white wires from the exciter coil;
  • pulsating high ACV on the black / yellow & green wires to the ignition coil.
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
