Hampton bay fan with two wall switches and fan does not work

One wall switch has all four (red, blk, wht, and ground) wires but the other only has two black and one white with the ground. trying to run another line with no red wire only blew the switch with the red wire attached to it and won't turn off the light. the other switch still works.

That is because you need both switches wired exactly the same way in order to have a two way switch. The switch that blew had the necessary wires but was wired wrong. One of those two black wires has to be used as a red one. You will have to check the wires for continuity to find which black connects to the red wire on the other end.

Why don't you just throw it away and get a good fan? I don't think you can wire it without the switch.

You need to find the hot leg and the nuetral leg . Hot is black and neutral is white . You need to make sure you have 120 volts between these wires cause some of the blacks could be switch leggs for the lights you talked about . Tie your recep. To those wht to wht and blk to blk .

I bought a Hampton Bay ceiling fan and I have

Hi ,, the usual wiring for the fan / light is that in the ceiling the white wires connect together , the black house wire connects to the black fan wire, the red house wire connects to the other fan wire, usually blue or black with a blue stripe. If this does not resolve the issue, then check the wall switches and see that there is a power wire to each switch and that there is a red wire from the fan on one switch and the black wire from the fan on the other switch ..

Trying to rewire a hampton bay light fan. I have

Try switching the red and white wires
But it should be working if the light is.
Make sure all the wires to the remote are connected good. You may just have defective remote.

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

Hampton Bay Wiring?

You have two switches right? One for the light and one for the fan? White should be neutral. Green should be ground. Black should be hot from one switch and red should be hot from the other. Hook black to black and blue to red. If you wire blue and black together then one switch will turn on the fan and the light at the same time.

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.
