Question about Panasonic Hardware & Accessories

2 Answers

I am trying to replace my old exhaust fan with Panasonic fv-o8vf2 fan. However when I open the junction box it has a green, white and black wire in the junction box plus another green wire attached to a screw on the side. My old exhaust fan only has a black and white wire. Also the old exhaust fan was connected to the bathroom light. (one switch for both). The old fan's white wire was connected to the white wire in the ceiling/attic and the black wire was connected to the black wire in the ceiling/attic. There was a bare wire from the ceiling wiring that was connected to a screw in the old fan's housing ( I assume this is the ground). How do I connect the new fan? Thanks.

The green wire is the ground, just like the bare wire. Attach black to black, white to white, and green to bare.

SOURCE: Ceiling fan wiring

Black from the ceiling goes to black from the fan
White from the ceiling goes to white from the fan
Red from the ceiling goes to blue on the fan...if you don’t have a red, connect the blue wire to the black from the ceiling.

The blue is power to the light kit, and sometimes has a separate wall switch, hence the different color. If not, you control the complete power to the fan with the single wall switch (black and white wires) and then control the fan/light with the pull chains

SOURCE: Re: wiring the FV-08VKS1

The black and white in the fan box are the main power and neutral for normal (low speed) of the fan. The two reds are the signal wires. It is basically a switch loop. You will actually need a total of 4 conductors (plus a ground) in order to run the high and low speed of the fan. The four conductors consist of 1) power from one switch to power up the fan, 2) neutral, 3) signal going to second switch, 4) signal going back to fan from second switch in order to run high speed. Without four conductors you can still run the high speed only by tying the two red wires in the fan together. This would be like always having the second swith in the on position. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Our new bathroom fan is not clearing the room the

I use to be a chimney sweep. One of my jobs was to clean vents for dryers and bath vents. What could be your problem is that you have a bird nest in the vent system. It sounds to me that you have a vent on the roof for the fan. A bird could have damaged the cap to gain entrance and built a nest. With the cap gone, rain can come in. With the nest, it will not vent out the room. You could call your local chimney sweep company and they will clean it for you. Or if you are capable, Lowe's or Home Depot sell dryer vent cleaning rods. They are sturdy but flexible rods with a 4" brush on the end. Two other handy tools will be a high power shop vac to **** out anything from inside the vent, and a high power blower that has vacuum capability to use out side the house. Cafe full though, if it pulls out a nest, it will shoot it out with great force.

SOURCE: Would this work or burn

Yes everything would work perfectly. I see no problems in your plan. Even if both fans were run off of one switch they would not burn out, the circuit it appropriately sized. You could even go a step down to save yourself some money and use 14/2 and 14/3 (supposing its only the fans running on the circuit). You can run up to 16 amps on 12 AWG wire and up to 12 amps on 14 AWG wire (80% of breaker tolerance). Also when it get to the fans use a wire junction box run your 3 wire cable in there and branch out to your fans from there with separate 2 wire cables. I believe that was your plan just wanted to clarify. Good luck!!

Your copper, green wire are the ground. I beleave that the white is the power, and the black is your neg. to make sure i would use a wire tester to determen the power. From there white goes to white, black to black, and green to copper. I am not sure on the white/black wire it maybe another power. Look at your instalation manual it should tell you.
Hope this can help.

Wiring diagram for harbor breeze celing fan


The colors of the wires in the Harbor Breeze ceiling fan kits tell you what their functions are. The black wire is hot for the fan, the white is a common wire for both the fan and the light kit, green is ground and blue is hot for the light kit. locate the black and blue wires from the ceiling fan and connect them to the black wire inside the electrical junction box by twisting an orange wire connector onto all three wires. Locate the white wire from the ceiling fan and the white wire from the junction box and attach the two wires together with a wire connector. Connect the bare copper wire onto the green wire from the ceiling fan mounting bracket by twisting an orange wire connector onto the two wires. Push all wiring inside the electrical box. good-day !

You happened to catch the same guy who answered before.
You can re-post again and I'll step aside if that is your choice.

I see. The power is coming from a junction box into the fan-light combo
You have 2 cables dropping down to the two switches, and each cable has black-white-ground

The grounds are connected together and to the green screws.

Black Hot connects to both black wires that drop to single pole switches
White wires from switches connect to fan-blue and light-black wires
Fan-white and light-white connect to white neutral

If you still have a question,
You can answer directly to this post.
I will not be back for about 10 hours.
But this wiring is correct from the information you have given

Tell me what you are wanting to accomplish. Are you wanting to run each fan off a separate switch in the same duplex box? The reason I ask is because you are using 12/3 wire to the fans. If you are just going to have 2 switches then you are only going to have power to each fan from each switch. Therefore there is no need to run 12/3 wire. 12/2 is all that is needed and you would simply tie the fan and light wires to that one power source at the light/fan. Now if you are wanting to have a switch for the light and another switch for the fan at each location then that will take 4 switches. You can buy double stack switches and have 4 switches in a double gang box. Is this new construction or old? Please explain what you are wanting and I will be more than happy to explain how to wire it.

WIRING DIAGRAM


The light box in your ceiling should have two or three wires. Black and White, or Red, Black and White.

If you have two wires (one switch to control everything):
Black is power - hook this to the fan's power wire (and the fan's light wire if applicable)
White is neutral - hook this to the fan's neutral wire.

If you have three wires (two separate switches):
Red is power for the light - hook this to the fan's light wire if applicable
Black is for the fan - hook this to the fan's motor
White is neutral - hook this to the fan's neutral wire.

Low voltage wires


I just tested a mastercool control box and found these 4 control wire colors:

Red (24v supply)
White (pump)
Green (low blower)
Yellow (high blower)

The yellow acted as a common for testing when the blower was not on high.

Blower on low just green has 24v.
Blower on high green and yellow have 24v.

If there was a fifth wire added hopefully it would be a ground wire.

There was also the low gauge wires that were black, white, and ground that were not control wires and delivered power to the control box.

Replace exhaust fan with fan & light?


Let's say you originally only had one switch (to operate the fan). And at the fan you have only one black, one white, and one ground (bare or green). You can still put in a fan/light combo. but both the light and the fan will always come on together when you flip the switch. To do this you'd connect the black from the switch to the black AND the blue on the fan and connect the white from the switch to both whites on the fan and connect the ground from the switch to either a green or bare wire on the fan or to a green screw on the fan housing somewhere (whatever is available).

Wiring ceiling fans to wall switch


Hi Bigelow,

You need two switches.  It sounds like the Electrician set up the junction box for two circuits(Lights and Fans).  i say this because your supply has 4 wires, Red , Black, White and Bare. We may be able to oversome this with one Lutron Switch. Allow me to investigate, and I will be back.
