SOURCE: Wiring bath fan with Fan/ light combo. Want to

If I understand correctly you are installing two wall switches.
Your switches are switch1 and switch2
Each switch has 2 brass-colored screws
If you have a double switch, see page bottom
And you are installing a fan/light combo with separate wires for fan and light.

Bare ground wires and green wires connect to each other and to green screw. A ground wire runs from fan/light to switch box where it connects to other bare copper wire and these wires will not be discussed.

Lets work from the fan/light down to the switch.

Blue-wire-fan connects to either brass screw on switch1
White-wire-fan connects to white Neutral (we'll talk about this wire as we go)

Black-wire-light connects to either brass screw on switch2
White-wire-light connects to same Neutral as White-wire-fan.

So you need 3 wires running from fan/light to your switch box.
One wire arrives at switch box and connects to brass screw on switch1
One wire arrives at switch box and connects to brass screw on switch2
One wire is the Neutral wire and it arrives at switch box and connects to other white wires inside switch box. Twist these wires together and cover with wire nut.

Now your white Neutral is connected to other white wires in switch box.
Each switch still needs another wire.

The Hot black wire from breaker box connects to brass screw on both switches

Pardon the crude drawing.
The switches would actually be located next to each other, but it was easier to draw like this.
Drawing shows 3 wires coming from fan-light to switch box.
The drawing shows the black and white wire arriving from breaker
The drawing does not show how the white wires are joined with a wire nut

If you have a double switch, with 2 switches stacked vertically.
The screw colors can be different.
Double switch could have brass screws on both sides, in which case your Load (fan-light) wires connect on one side of device, and your Hot from breaker connects to other side. It doesn't matter which side, but loads on one side, hot on other side.
Double switch could also have dark screw(s) on one side and brass screws on other side.
In this case, the black Hot from breaker connects to dark-colored screw(s)
And your Load (fan-light) connect to brass colored screws.

If you need more information, or if something is still confusing, answer back.

Cant get the fan to go without the light being on


You have it wired wrong.
Power should leave single switch in a black hot wire and arrive at fan box on ceiling.
Your ceiling box will have at least 1 black Hot wire and 1 white Neutral
The fan will have 3 wires for connection purpose. Black, blue-or-red, and white.
Twist Black + blue-or-red together and connect to Black Hot wire from switch.
Connect fan white to white neutral.

The information is a bit sketchy, and you can add a comment with more information.

1) You have a triple switch with dark screw
(s) on one side of device.
You know that Hot attaches to dark screw.
On opposite side of switch are 3 screws.
1 screw is for wire going to bath fan.
1 screw is for wire going to bath light.
1 screw is for wire going to separate light above mirror.
If you do not have a separate wire running to each Load, then you need to add a wire.

2) If I understand correctly, your wall box contains several cables
Each cable has a black and white wire.
Ground wires are twisted together and connected to green screw, and are not discussed.

3) Cable1 black and white are Hot and Neutral from breaker box.
Are you sure?
Test each wire in box to bare ground to find hot wire.
Test hot wire to each wire to find neutral wire.
If power comes from junction box on ceiling, wall box might not have neutral wire.
If neutral wire was used to complete circuits for previous switch, then it is used the same for new switch. That's where the information is sketchy.

You have 4 white wires
1 white goes to each load
1 white is neutral
Where are the black wires associated with these white wires?
Add a comment and say how many cables and where each wire was connected before.

Here's how to start.
Connect Hot to dark screw.
One at a time, connect each white to screw on other side of switch.
Turn on power and flip the switch.
If load turns ON, then that wire is correct.
If load does not turn ON, then leave switch ON. Test each of the other white wires to bare ground to see if this wire should connect to neutral. Then connect that wire to neutral and test switch again.

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!

Possible cross wiring


Whew! You'll need to trip the breaker that the fan/light is on and make sure that the circuit is dead. Turn the wall switch to "off". Gain access to your wiring connections at the ceiling. If you are operating the fan and lights via a single wall switch, proceed as follows: Your motor hot wire from the fan is black (usually, but verify all wire colors with your instruction manual, just in case they differ), and the light hot wire is usually blue. In your ceiling box, you will find black wires twisted together as well as white wires twisted together. Look for a single black wire that is not a part of the black twisted bundle. This wire will be the return wire from the wall switch and is the wire that will supply electricity to your fan and light when the circuit is powered up and the wall switch is "on". Connect the motor wire (black) and the light wire (blue) from the fan to the black wire. Locate the white wires from the motor and the light and connect these to the white bundle. Fasten all wires using wire nuts. Make sure that no parts of the wiring are left exposed. Electrical taping is a good idea, but don't let it be a substitute for the wire nuts. Be sure to connect the ground wire. Turn your breaker back on, and turn the wall switch to on. Verify proper operation of the fan and light by operating the pull chalns.
Hope this helps. Best regards, --WoobieDog--

Problem with lights on install of a ceiling fan/light


ok...assuming the blue wire is the second wire coming from the light switch, it should be connected seperately to the black wire leading to the light(s). so the black lead of the switch should be connected to the power wire from the ceiling box and the blue wire should be connected to the black lead that goes to the lights. it sounds like you have the light leads connected to the main power, so the light switch would be bypassed, thus not operating correctly.
all white wires should be connected together unless one is being used as a return power from the wall switch, (which is often done).
hope this helps..........................jay
