2-wire pull chain switch wiring in a ceiling fan light kit

1 blk, 1 wht wire coming down thru fan to 4-light kit - replacing 2-wire pull chain switch, but (dummy me) removed old b-4 noting how wires were connected - 2-blk wires off switch: if 1 goes to blk (hot) from fan, where do I put the remaining switch wire?

    problem is that when i put 1 switch wire to the (hot) blk fan wire & the other switch wire to the neutral (wht), i think it shorted out the light kit - only 2 wires (blk & wht) coming down to light kit & therefore avail. for the switch - guess now i have to replace the light kit fitter?

If you removed a switch there should be two wires. Connect one of the wires to each of the switch wires or screws. good luck

Always write down which color wire goes into which slot on the pull chain switch before removing it. All I can tell you is the black wire usually goes into the L. The others you'll have to play with. Also, just because the switch looks the same on the outside doesn't mean it's the same on the inside.

The blue wire is for your light kit. Tie it in with your black wire if there are only a black and a white.

Old fan switch has 4 wires, new one has 3. A Ceiling fan light switch is for the fan, not the light, correct?


You have 2 questions:
1) Pull-chain Switch question:
You need a fan switch with 4 wires.

Your pull-chain switch has one wire that connects to Hot from wall switch. And then one wire for each of the 3 speeds.
Best way to start is to test the old switch with continuity tester.

Compare results with following image of 3-wire switch for general reference:

2) Ceiling fan pull chain switch is for the fan only.

INSTALLED NEW LIGHT SWITCH IN CEILING FAN LIGHT PULL CHAIN TYPE AND THE LIGHTS WILL NOT TURN OFF WITH THE PULL CHAIN? THERE ARE 4 WHT WIRES AND 4 BLK WIRES IN LIGHT KIT WERE DO THE 2 WIRES FROM THE NEW...


twist the 4 black wires from the lights together and use a wirenut to either connect them to one side of the switch or to a pigtail that will go into one side of the switch. The other side of the switch will be wired to the hot wire coming from the fan meant for the light kit. All of the whit wires get twisted together and connected to the neutral light wire coming from the fan. If you've already connected it that way and it doesn't work, the switch may be defective.

Replacing a pull chain 3-way ceiling fan light switch


OK .. the thick black and white are the power for the fan , are there also white wires on the lamp sockets ..??
The thick black wire should connect to the black wire on the switch.
The small black wires connect to the red and blue wire on the switch .. two small black wires each .. that should give you a position for 2 lights , and 4 lights, on the step switch .. but there should be white wires from the lamp sockets connected to the thick white from the fan .

please respond .

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!

white definately goes to white. however you configure the red, black and blues will only determine which switch on the wall controls the fan or light. as for the bare copper, the fans typically come from the factory with a green pigtail screwed into the top of the downrod

Ceiling fan pull chain switch replacement


OK, this is easy, it just seems hard. First off, take all the white wires from the light fixture's clusters, and hook them to the white feed wire. Now take the black side of the cluster of wires, and attach them to one side of the switch. It does not matter which side. The other side, goes to the feed wire that is black or what ever feeds the light. The switch only acts as a valve for one side of the loop. I could explain why some switches have a black and white, but I will leave that alone, so I do not confuse the issue.
Good luck!
