Question about Hunter Vaulted Ceiling Mount - Antique Brass Fan

Ceiling fan and light wiring, 2 switches, 1 romexHunt

I am installing a ceiling fan and light kit and am having trouble wiring them. The wall has 2 switches, but only one romex goes to the fan. There are two blacks and two whites coming into the box. One white coming in is connected to the bottom switch and the other white is connected to the white going out. One black wire coming in is connected directly to the top switch on one side. The other black wire coming in is wired to the one going out and a third is connected to this and runs to the other side of the top switch. I have on the ceiling one black and one white. How do we wire this ceiling fan and light kit to this configuration where one switch is for the light and one for the fan. The old fan was wired for these switches but unfortunately our son took it down without us seeing how it was wired first.

If you have only one black and one white in the ceiling to connect the fan / light to , then you have only one switch for this ceiling box. The fan / light will connect the white wires together and then the two colored wires on the fan to the black ceiling wire. In order to use separate switches for the fan and the lighht a 4 wire cable must go from the switches to the light so you have a red and black wire to switch the two separately .

I understand that the black and blue wire can be connected to the black wire in my ceiling. ok fair enough. However, in my new bedroom, there is 2 switches on the wall that apparently control two black...


A ceiling fan requires a neutral wire (white), a ground wire (green), a hot wire for the fan (black), and on fans with light kits a hot wire for the lights (blue). These examples will assume that a lighting kit is going to be used, but if it is not terminations to the blue wire are not required and the circuit is greatly simplified The ceiling fan and light can also be wired through switches. When a single switch is used to connect to the ceiling fan and light the ceiling fan (black) and light (blue) would both be connected to the switched black wire. In this configuration turning the switch on would power both the light and ceiling fan. In order to turn just one off, the pull strings would have to be used. The problem with this approach, is that when the pull strings have been used to turn the light or ceiling fan off, turning the switch back on will not work until the pull string is pulled again .
The ceiling fan and light can also be wired through two switches. This would generally be two separate switches, one for the fan and one for the light. This would generally be a 3 conductor w/ground coming from the switch box. The ceiling fan (black) wire would connect to the switched black wire from the ceiling fan switch, the light wire (blue) would connect to the switched red wire from the light switch and the neutral (white) and ground (bare) would connect to the their associated wires..

We just installed and the fan works but not the lights what could it be?


Double check your wiring. If the fan came with the light kit already installed there should be two power supply wires protruding from the top of the canopy. One is for the fan (usually black) and the other is for the light(usually blue.) If you have only one wall switch to control both the fan and light, both of those wires should be connected to the black power wire from your ceiling. If you have two wall switches, one for the fan and one for the light, you should have two power wires coming from your ceiling (usually red and black.) Put the fan wire on one and the light wire on the other. If the light kit came seperately and was attached tho the fan, double-check those connections. Often the small stranded wires will pull out from under the wire nuts. Same for the wires at the top of the fan. Hope this helped in some way.

House wireing red,white,black. how do i hook up a cealingfan with light kit pull chain on.


For starters, look at the wall switch. Are there two switches? If so, connect the black wire from the ceiling box to the black wire from the fan. Connect the red wire from the ceiling box to the blue wire from the fan. Connect white to white. At the fan, usually the black wire goes to the fan and the blue wire goes the the light.

If there is only one wall switch, you may or may not want to install a double switch so the fan and light can be controlled separately. If there is only one wall switch, most people just connect the wire connected to that switch (usually the black) to both the black and blue from the fan, not using the red at all. In that scenario both the light and the fan are switch at the fan as needed after the wall switch is operated.

Installing the extra red wire is not usual practice, someone actually was planning for future use and convenience.

Wiring heater, vent, light with 12/2 and 12/3 from switch to unit. email: lfranklin5@charter.net


I wish we had more information to go on here.

1) You have 2 cables to to the Heat-Vent-Light
One cable is 12-3 and 1 cable is 12-3

2) That's where it's gets fuzzy.
What color wires are on HentVentLight?
Is power at the ceiling box or at the wall box?
What other wires are inside the wall box?
What kind of switch are you installing?

3) With that number of wires, it sounds like power is at ceiling box.
Power would arrive at ceiling box on one cable that has a Hot-black and Neutral-white wire.

4) Start at wall box:
Let's suppose you are installing a wall device that has 3 individual switches, with one switch for each HentVentLight.
The Hot wire from ceiling box would drop down into wall box on a black wire, and this wire connects to brass screw on switch.
Wire going to heater connects to one of the silver screws.
Wire to fan to another silver screw
Wire to light to another silver screw.

5) Work at ceiling box:
Let's suppose your HentVentLight has 4 wires: Black for light, Red for fan, Blue for heater, and White Neutral.
The white neutral connects to Neutral wire as described in #3.
Black, Red and Blue connect to each of the wires that come up from switch.
