I want to replace our old carling toggle switch to a new timer switch for an attic fan. I have 2 black wires and one red. My new switch has one black one red and one green wire.....what do I do?


Is the fan 2-speed?
Old switch has 2 black and 1 red... sounds like 2-speed.
One black is probably Hot, and other black and red go to each speed??
Choose 1 speed and wire timer as follows:

Add a comment with more details about the timer you are using, and include if fan is 2-speed and what each wire tests.

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!

My radiator fans are not working and I am afraid that the fan relay went out and am going to check it tomorrow. Will it hurt anything to straight wire the fan to always run?


well you see the relay is built to switch a higher current circuit using a smaller current. it is a safety hazard as using just a toggle switch will allow too much current to flow thru the circuit. you should replace the relay. now if after you replace the relay the fans dont work but the fans are good(ran power wire directly to fan for testing purposes) then as a temporary measure you wire a switch to Control thr relay(relay actually handles the fan current). find the fan relay. it should have 5 pins. on the case of the relay there should be a diagram.

04f5a20.gif
the numbering should be the same.

using an ohm meter checkthe relay socket pin86 with red lead, black lead connected to ground. if zero ohms, then that is ground and pin85 of relay socket is +. pin30 should read 12 volts with meter, run wire from here to one side of a toggle switch located near steering wheel so you can access it when you start car. other side of toggle switch runs to pin85.with the small wires into the relay socket still in place, plug in relay. throw toggle switch to on and if everythings connected, fans should come on.

How to install a dimmer switch


This is a 3-way switch, made to control a light fixture that is also controlled by another switch in a different location. A typical example is a ceiling light fixture installed in an upstairs hallway, which could be controlled by switches at both top and bottom of the staircase.

The green wire in your switch is the ground connection, and joins to the green insulated or bare copper ground wire in the switch box. The red wire is the common connection. It connects either to the incoming AC hot wire from the electric panel, or to the hot terminal of the light fixture, depending on the switch location. The two black wires are traveller connections. They connect to the traveller terminals of the other 3-way switch.

If you purchased this switch as a replacement for a regular single-pole toggle switch or dimmer switch - one that controls a light from a single location only - then this isn't what you need and you can't use it. You'll know if you have a single-pole switch because it will have only three wires or screw connections. Return it and get a single-pole.

To install this as a replacement for a 3-way toggle switch or dimmer, connect the red wire to the wire going to the common terminal of the original switch. This will be a black- or brass-colored screw on a toggle switch, or the different-colored (not green, that's ground) wire on a dimmer. The black wires connect to the wires that go to the traveller screws (copper-colored) on a toggle switch, or the same-colored wires on a dimmer. It doesn't matter which traveller wire connects to which.

Note that if you're using a 3-way dimmer, only one of the switches can be a dimmer. The other switch has to be a plain old 3-way toggle.

How yo wire up ceiling fan with light


Typically with only one switch controlling the fan/light the connections in the ceiling are white to white, black to black and blue. if you have a separate switch for the light and one for the fan, typically the wiring is white to white, black to black, red to blue.

PCS 127 does not heat up. Fan and preheat start.


We were able to unscrew the plate that sits behind the latch. 6 screws I believe. Look towards the middle back-right side you will see a red switch. Click it twice. Before we put plate back we tested oven and it worked!!! Hope this info will help you. Dacor oven has been a real problem and I'm a kitchen designer. Will never recommend Dacor anything to my clients after many oven issues.

I have a ceiling fan with a light that is controlled by the same switch. I want to put a combination switch to control them seperately. There two sets of 3 wire (black, white, red, ground) and another set...


First, turn off the circuit breaker. The three wire bundle should be the incoming power, the four wire bundle should be going to the fixture. Using a duplex switch (one with two toggles), the incoming black wire goes to one side of the switch, the outgoing black and red wires go to separate terminals on the other side of the switch. The whites are connected together. The Grounds (or bare copper) are connected together and to the switch ground screw. Hopefully both the outgoing read and black were connected to the old switch or you may have to rewire the fan to wire up the fan and light separately.
