    Do you mean that you want one switch for light and one switch for fan in the same location? Or do you mean you want to switch the fan on from two locations? Is there constant power on any of these wires? Do you know where each set of wires at the fixture go to?

I am assuming that you have two 3way switches controlling this fan/light .. if there are more switches , then stop here and get back to me

connect the house wires red to red and black to black , then a house4 white to the ]fan white , the other house white connects to both the black and blue from the fan .. to be exactly correc the white fan wire should be connected to the white house wire that is the white power wire from the electrical panel.,

Would like some troubleshooting help with a ceiling fan that the switch turns the light on/off but the remote won't control the fan. Can anyone help with wiring questions?


Is the remote control function an add-on to the fan, or is that built into the unit? If it's built in you'll want to go to the manufacturer on that one. As for wires in the wall, black is "usually" the 'live' wire, while white is the cold line. I'm no expert on wiring, but have done some outlets and light fixtures before. Good luck!

I'm an electrician and will be happy to help you out. I need a little more information to answer accurately first. 1) What is the brand and model number of the "ceiling fan with remote". 2) If replacing / adding switches, how many locations will control the fan / light fixture? Please provide this info and I'm sure we can get this working very quickly.

The Casablanca 88U33M Scandia Ceiling Fan only has three wires, a black, a white, and a green wire (ground). How do you wire the fan and light on seperate switches?


If you want to control both the light and the fan using 3-ways, then just wire 2 sets of the 3-way circuits. For this you need two sets of 3-wire between the switches, and one 3-wire cable from the switch location to the fan/light box.

At box #1 (a 2 gang box), you will run a power cable (marked cable #1) into it. From there you run 2 sets of 3-wire cables (identified as cable #2 & cable #3) to the other switch location, which will also be a 2-gang box (box #2).

Also from box #1, you will run a 3-wire cable (cable #4) to the fan/light box (box #3).

Hook up is as follows:

Box #3: connect black of cable #4 to black (fan), connect red of cable #4 to blue (light), connect white of cable #4 to white (fan/light), and connect the bare to the green.

Box #2: Connect white of cable #2 to identified terminal on 1st 3-way switch (#3). Connect red & black of cable #2 to the remaining screws of 3-way switch #3. Next connect white of cable #3 to identified terminal of 2nd 3-way switch (#4), and connect black and red to remaining screws. Tie all grounds together and terminate to both switches.

At box #1, connect black from cable #1 to whites in cables #2 & #3, using a wirenut. Connect white in cable #1 to white in cable #4. Connect black and red in cable #2 to 3rd 3-way switch (#1) and connect black and red in cable #3 to 4th 3-way switch (#2). Connect black in cable #4 to identified terminal of 3-way switch #1, and connect red in cable #4 to identified terminal on 3-way switch #2. Tie all grounds together and to the switches

How to wire this fan


The wiring on most paddle / ceiling fans id such:

White = Fan and Light neutral or "common"
Black = Fan line voltage or "hot"
Blue = Light line voltage or "hot"
Green = safety ground

If you are replacing an existing light fixture - be sure to replace the ceiling box with one designed for use with a fan - as per electrical code. If the existing box had only 2 wires (or 3 counting the ground) that connected to the old light fixture and it was controlled from a wall switch, the wiring would be fixture white to ceiling white, fixture black and fixture blue to ceiling black (or red) and fixture green to ceiling bare ground or connected to the metal box. This would power both the fan and light whenever the wall switch was on and the pull chains for each were also on. This is also the preferred wiring for replacement of a pull chain type light fixture (no wall switch present).

If there are other wires in the box that previously were not connected to the old light fixture, using a meter or tester - determine if there is constant power between the ceiling white wire and any of the these other wires (test with the wall switch on and off to be sure). If you do have constant power available, you might consider using the wall switch to control only the light, and using the pull chain to operate the fan (or vice-versa). Simply connect the black (for fan) or the blue (for light) to the "constant power on" wire and that part of the fixture will work by pull chain only - regardless of the wall switch position. If the fan can be shut off by the wall switch, it is very important that the wall switch remain a toggle (or on / off switch), do NOT replace with a dimmer type switch.

If you'd prefer to operate the fan and light completely independently of each other - you can purchase a 3rd party fan & light remote control device for between $30 - $50.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thanks!

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.

Chain to light does not work


Most paddle fans that come with a light kit (or provisions to add one via plug / jack later) provide at least 3 wires (most times 4 though) that will need to be connected to the house wiring. Those wires are:

1) Green, or Green with a Yellow stripe - this is the grounding wire and is connected to the grounded metal junction box or other ground wires.
2)White - this is the neutral wire and is connected to both the fan motor and light fixture.
3)Black - this wire connects to the fan motor. This wire along with the white wire completes a circuit for the fan.
4)Blue - this wire connects to the light fixture. This wire along with the white wire complete a circuit for the light fixture.

Ideally, the junction box in the ceiling has a neutral, ground and both an unswitched power source *and* a switched power source. An unswitched source is always on (regardless of any switch's position) while the switched source is controlled by one or more switch(es) near a door(s). Use a meter or tester to determine which wires are switched (probably black or red) and unswitched (probably black but may be red, too). Label them or orient them in such a way that you'll remember which is which. Turn the power off.

Connect the paddle fan's blue wire to the switched wire, the black wire to the unswitched wire(s), the white wire to the other neutral (most likely white wire(s) and finally, the ground wire to the rest of the ground wire(s). Turn power back on.

Wiring in this way allows the light fixture to be controlled by the wall switch(es) and the fan by the pull chain on the fixture. Turn the wall switch on and pull the chain until the light turns on. You can remove the long chain once the switch turns the light on and off so it is not accidentally shut off at the paddle fan later. Change the fan speed from high to low and eventually off with the chain.

If you only have a switched or unswitched power source in the ceiling, you'll have to connect both the black and blue paddle fan wires to whichever type power you have in the ceiling (switched or unswitched). If you're using a switched sourced, that switch will have to be left on in order for the fan or light to work.

If you have wired in any of these methods already, it could be that the switch for the fixture has failed, and should be replaced with a like-type switch.

I hope this helps!

I am trying to install a 42" ceiling suspended fan .. just making sure the blue(1) and black(2) wires go together and then the green goes to the bare ground wire coming from the box.


If you are not using a seperate switch to control the fan the blue and black go together and the white goes to white and the green goes to green. The blue wire is the fan power wire and the black is the light power wire if you are just using the switch on the fan to control the fan speed then the above configuration is the way it should be wired.

Replacing a ceiling fan pull chain light switch.


that is strange
normally a 3 wire switch could only be able to control 2 things + off. black would be common, red would be one fan speed or set of lights and blue would be the other fan speed or set of lights.
if it is a replacement, couldn't you just hook it up like the switch you are removing?

most likely the black wires are grounds for everything and white would be power. hook it up however you like. white power would hook up to the black wire on the switch and then the blue to one light and red to the other set of lights white wires.
good luck!

Wiring a ceiling fan with light fixture. there is a black and white stripe wire, one black wire, one white wire and ground wire. Coming out of the ceiling is two black and one white. one copper. please...


The black and black with white stripe are for the light and fan respectfully. The white wire is your neutral. That leaves the ground to your copper ground wire. If you have two seperate switches to operate the fan and light then the two black and black with white will tie in to seperate black supply wires. If only one switch then they will tie in together to the black supply wire.
