Wiring placement inside housing on ceiling fan

Got it all wired up, just can't seem to get the right placement of everything to go back up in the housing and screw the light fixture back on to the housing.

Hi Steven

Would you happen to know how I can modify the wiring of an Xpelair DX100HP?

I have an external switch, with which I can switch off the fan. When I switch it on, I want it to run by the timer, or by the humidistat if needed. I want to cut off the pull cord.

However, I have only 3 wires from the external switch to the fan, two of them carying power. Can I use the 1 unused wire to activate the timer?

I was thinking to modify the internal wiring so that, when it receives power, it will start through the timer and then stop untill trigerred by the humidistat.

Any ideas?

Is this a small fan around 120mm square, if so you need to ensure that the wiring is run in from the correct wiring inlet, there is usually a small spigot the wiring has to go round too, otherwise cover catches wiring. This is general on Xpelair, Vent Axia and GET fans.
If this doersnt help, let me know what the fan is, ie; model No

Wires coming out of ceiling to connect ceiling fans with lights

I don't know what the question is! I don't know that fan but if it's a ceiling fan & you only have one hot wire then you would wire it this way; White to white, green to green or ground, & black & blue from fan to black house wire.

Don't know that fan because it's a low-end store brand, But, if it has no remote;
White to white
black to black
blue to red ( usually)
If no red wire in ceiling then put black & blue to black house wire.

Tail light wires

I just solved my identical problem on a 2003 750 ACE. The four way connection in back of the license plate housing was pushed inside the back of the housing with the left turn signal wire crimped a little between the housing and the fender (probably at the factory)., It wasn't crimped enough to break the wire, but just enough to apparently short out the circuit. The clear vinyl cover was melted just a little bit where the wire was crimped but it didn't look like there was enough damage to cause a short. I stripped the clear vinyl cover off, taped it with electrical tape, and made sure that all of the wires were pushed inside the back of the housing. Everything works, plus the 15 amp fuse doesn't blow anymore. Hope this helps.

Is it possible that there is another remote, either yours or a neighbor's, close enough to operate it?
I installed a remote operated ceiling fan & it is hard wired, there is no switch. If that happened to me, I'd be stuck never knowing when it will come on.
Can you change the remote code?

How do I get the wires out of the old 3 speed ceiling fan switch so I can replace it with a new one?

Usually, there is no way to remove the wires from the switch. Turn off the circuit breaker that powers the circuit going to your fan. Then, match up the new switch with the old one to make sure you have the correct one, with the correct amount of wires. Mark the placement of of these wires with masking tape or draw yourself a diagram. Next, you need to cut the wires as close to the old switch as possible, and strip back about 1/2" of the insulation on these wires. Now connect those wires to the leads (wires) coming from the new switch with small wire nuts or crimp fasteners. When connecting the cut wires to the new switch leads, follow the same pattern as the old switch (refer to your masking tape labels or your diagram). Now you can secure the switch to the fan casing with it's locknut, and carefully tuck the wiring back inside. Re-secure the casing to the fan.

I have the Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan and Remote. Model UC7083T. My son was playing with the battery cover and i think he moved the switches. The problem is i don't know what their original position was....

You have to go inside the actual ceiling fan. If you look on the part right above the light, there should be 3 or 4 screws in the side, connecting the light setup to the body of the fan. Unscrew those screws and disconnect the wiring harness. Inside the now open fan wiring, you should see a little box, that is the remote receiver. Either on one of the sides of the box, or inside that box will be the code. It will look just like the code switches on the remote. Make sure they match up, clip the wiring harness for the light and the fan back together, screw those screws back in, and you should be good to go.

The wire to the ceiling fan are meant to send voltage to the fixture only and are not usually wired to control both the light and the fan independently. In order to do that, you may have to pull another set of wires to the switch box and then connect them to the light circuit in the box where the fan is. In regards to the other wiring that you mentioned, it makes no sense that the wires go to the stove fan and the bathroom fan unless those wires are source wires that carry the incoming voltage.
