Question about Panasonic FV-08VKS1 WhisperGreen Ceiling Mount 80 CFM
Not including the ground, there are four wires coming from the fan, black,white, and two reds. Can a three wire romex be used to connect fan to wall switch? I would assume the fan's two reds would connect to the one red in the romex, which would then connect to the hi/lo switch in the wall switch. The black would connect to the on/off switch at the wall.
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.
