Next time don't lose the instructions.....

Black is your answer...

If just simply hooking the blue and black together with the black from the switch/power supply does not work you need to replace the wire going to the fan with a 12/3 wire(white,black,red,ground) along with a switch, what you have now is a 12/2(white,black,ground)


Here is the following way it should be hooked up using 12/3 romex to the fan from wall switch.
White,Black, ground power supply
Make sure 12/3 is fed to the fan location.
From the power you Y off the black to the red with a piece of red wire to the switch.
Then from the switch is red wire.
Then at the fan red connects to blue, black connects to black, white to white, and ground to ground.

I have a used ceiling fan that I want to install. I see only three wires coming out of the top; a black, a white, and a blue. The fixture has the fan and 4 lights attached. Can you tell me how to...


Black is the hot wire, white is the neutral, and blue is the hot wire for the lights. If you only have a black, white and green(ground) coming from the electric box in the ceiling, you will have to wire the blue and black together coming from the fan and connect them both to the black coming from the box. The white will connect to the white coming from the box in the ceiling. You should have a ground wire off of the fan. If not look for a ground screw on the fan down rod. The ground is for safety.

Need to know how to wire this fan. Not using a remote or wall switch


Hello! W/D here.

In your ceiling box, you'll find 3 wires; black, white and bare copper.
In your fan, you'll see 4 wires; black (or red), white blue, and green.
With your breaker tripped, connect the green wire on the fan to the bare wire in the ceiling (this is your ground).
Connect the white fan wire to the white ceiling wire (this is your common).
Connect the blue and black (or red) together, and connect these to the black wire in the ceiling (this is the hot lead, and will supply power to the fan and the light).
Best regards, --W/D--

The wires for hooking this fan up are white,black and blue my guess is white and black are hot and blue is a ground wire. is this right?


White (Neutral) White to White

Blue (Light to Hot) Blue to Black (optional)

Black (Fan to Hot) Black to Black

Green (Ground to Ground) Green to Green

If you do not have a green lead you might see a green screw to attach the ground wire from the house power. The fan has the optional light fixture future connect the blue wire to the black hot wire. If you have the optional light fixture you may want to connect it to a separate switch power.

White is your neutral so white goes to white. Blue on the fan is for the light kit you need to wire that to the wire from your switch so it works the lights. Black is the hot wire that is always hot not switched so tie that to the wire that is not on your switch. Green is ground so green to green. white to white / green to green/ black to black/ red to blue/

blue would be your earth.
black and white are phase and neutral.

for the wiring in your roof you need to call a local sparky. just ask which is which and connect them appropriately.

Wiring-


The ceiling has Black and white (dirty I expect) ,
black is hot , white is neutral
the green is ground ( the fan will ground through the mounting screws)
so connect the black to black (hot)
as you have only one choice left that is the blue/white to white.

I assume you have a strong bracket and a fan was existing previously in this spot. If not you have to install a new fan support and wiring box.

Ceiling fan


OK, the wires coming from the top of the fan are going to go into the junction box in your ceiling. Out of the ceiling, you should have a white wire, a black wire, and a green or bare copper ground wire. Make sure your power is off at the fan. Your wires coming out of the fan should be white, black, blue, and a green ground wire. Pull the wires through the top of your fan, and connect the white to the white in the ceiling, the black and blue wires from the fan to the black wire in the ceiling, and then connect your ground wires together. Make sure you use wire nuts and twist them firmly onto the ends of the wires. If you happen to have a red wire coming out of the ceiling as well, just put a wire nut on it and stuff it back into the ceiling box. The blue wire is what works your light kit, and the black is for the fan. Hope this helps you!
