Here's the wiring: black from box to black from fan; red from box to black with white line from fan; copper from box to green from fan; white from box to white AND gray from fan. Hope this helps.

Sounds like you have two hot wires. Just need to find out which wire goes to the wall switch. Try gray to black from fan,pink to black/white wire.white to white & green to green. If this doesn't work swich the pink & gray wires.

Box in ceiling has black wire and white wire & the ceiling fan has white wire, black wire and red wire.


BEFORE YOU PERFORM ANY CONNECTIONS BE SURE THAT THE CORRECT CIRCUIT BREAKER FOR THE BOX HAS BEEN TURNED OFF! You must check for voltage between the white and black wires at the ceiling box with each of your two wall switches toggled up or down ONE AT A TIME!
The green wire in the ceiling box (or bare copper wire) is your ground wire and should be connected to the green wire of the fan, and also should be mechanically connected to the electrical box by a screw or clip. If your system was wired correctly you should find that it already is connected to the box.
The white wire in the ceiling box is your neutral wire, so any and all white wires from the fan should be connected to it. You may have one for the fan motor and one for the light kit if there are two separate whites from the fan. Again, they may already be connected together in the fan/light assembly.
The black wire in the ceiling box is switched on and off from either of the two switches in the room, which I assume are located near two different doors to the room. These are called "three-way switches". They are not marked "on" and "off" on the toggle like any single-light switches in your home. That is why you must check for power at the ceiling box with the switches in each position one at a time to make sure that the circuit is de-energized.
Now for the connections:
You will need to connect both the red and black wires from the fan to the black wire from the electrical box. The black wire in your ceiling box is your "hot" wire and will provide power to both the fan motor (black wire) and to the light through the red wire--(sometimes this wire is blue, for others who are following this post).
With this arrangement, your fan and light will only operate with one or the other of your three-way switches completing the circuit from your breaker box. You will have to use the pull chains on the fan to control the fan and lights. So you will probably want to leave the light "pulled on" so that you can control the room lighting from either of your three-way switches, and operate your fan speeds from the pull chain. However, if you want your fan only on at night you will have to "pull off" the fan's light switch.
You may find all this switch flipping and chain pulling an inconvenience. If so, hire an electrician to install wiring so that the ceiling box will be "hot" all the time to the fan's black wire and the fan will therefore be operated by the pull chain only, and the light kit will be controlled by either of the three way switches, via the fan's red (or blue) wire.
One other caveat before you begin: you must make sure that the ceiling box is rated for and mounted sturdily so that it will support the weight of the fan and light kit. Many ceiling boxes are designed and mounted to support only a light-weight fixture. You don't want your fan to come crashing down from the ceiling!

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--

How to connect timer with 4 wires to box with 3 wires


L1 and L2 connect to the black and red. White connects to White. Green connects to the electrical box if it is made of steel and is grounded. Otherwise the green connects to the whites

The light does not turn completely off, it turns on then only half way off.


Please check your wiring inside the connection box.... this sounds like a hot ground to me.

White should be connected to all the whites. Green or bare copper should be connected to all the green or bare and the frame of the fan. Black should connect to a black and/or red and/or blue wire. You may have some hot leg wire barely touching a ground too. If that is the case, it is not popping the breaker because there are loose grounds involved somewhere.

Look at it carefully. Proceed wsith caution. Good luck and let me know whaat happens.

Wiring a ceiling fan w/light


To add to red54's comments:

This is what I believe you have:

- one source in the ceiling box (black & white)

- one donwline circuit in ceiling box going to another wall/ceiling box (black&white)

- on switch wire in ceiling box coming from your wall switch (black & white) -- this is the white wire which will be hot when the switch is truned on

Here's how it should be connected:

- all 3 blacks in ceiling box connected together -- no other wires in this bundle

- white wire (which is hot when switched) coming from switch connects to the black/blackwhite fan wires

- connect all reamining white wires together in bundle

- connect all ground wires together

It's that simple. Trick is figuring out, of the three cables in the ceiling box, which is source, which is downline, which is switch.
Maybe red54's procedure can help you figure that out.

Reconnect fan


There are four wires comming out from a ceiling fan. Check it. Isolate it to get four terminals. Check for continuty. In fact, they are pairs of coil inside the fan. As there are two coils inside the fan, you have two pairs of termials. After indetifying each pair, connect one pair directly to supply. Another pair is to be connected in series with a capcitor provided in your fan. After connection in seris, you will again have two terminals not connected to any point. Again connect it to supply (ie. LT supply viz 230 volts or 110 volts as per specification of fan). The fan will run. Now you have to check speed and proper direction of running. If speed is less, then only interchnage the coil connected with capacitor. If direction of running is opposite, interchange terminals of any one of the coil with supply. Write back me againg if you get any problem/confusion

Green and copper are the ground wires and I believe you can connect both these to the green wire from the fan (I only have the copper wire in the actual ceiling box). Black and Red can be treated as both black and both can be connected to the black wire from the fan (this is what I did in all my fans and it worked). White is the neutral wire and can be connected to the white wire from the fan (this is what I did in all my fans and it worked).

My ceiling box has the copper, red, black, and white wires. The ceiling plate for the fan I bought had a green wire. I connected the green wire from the ceiling plate and the copper wire from the ceiling box to the green wire from the fan.

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.

Hook the fan's wires up as follows: black = black (hot) white = white (neutral) green = green or bare copper wire (ground) red = not used, so cap off (hot) The red wire is for a light kit. You may have a second switch on the wall to control this. Usually, the ceiling fan will have a red with a green tracer wire that goes with the red wire. If not just cap the red wire off and don't use it.
