Have you taken a VOM (Volt-Ohm Meter) and checked to see that the "two wires" of which you speak actually have 110-120VAC on them?

I bet they don't and I bet they don't because "up top" (where the connections in from the ceiling box, the BLUE wire (might be brown on some fans) is not hooked up. Unless you have separate switches at the wall, the blue and black wires coming out of the fan must be combined and hooked to the BLACK wire coming out of the ceiling box. White (neutral) goes to white, and green goes to ground.

Good luck, and always OBSERVE practicable safety precautions.

I did not make a diagram when replacing the light switch


Red from switch goes to two blacks, blue from switch goes to two blacks and the black wire goes thru top of light and attaches to blue fan light wire. If you want a good fan, look for blade pitch(13 degree or higher)Or CFM's above 5500 on high.

The red wire is the hot wire for your light so connect it to the black wire on your light. The white neutral wire should connect to your other white wires on fan power wires.

Wiring diagram for harbor breeze celing fan


The colors of the wires in the Harbor Breeze ceiling fan kits tell you what their functions are. The black wire is hot for the fan, the white is a common wire for both the fan and the light kit, green is ground and blue is hot for the light kit. locate the black and blue wires from the ceiling fan and connect them to the black wire inside the electrical junction box by twisting an orange wire connector onto all three wires. Locate the white wire from the ceiling fan and the white wire from the junction box and attach the two wires together with a wire connector. Connect the bare copper wire onto the green wire from the ceiling fan mounting bracket by twisting an orange wire connector onto the two wires. Push all wiring inside the electrical box. good-day !

Light only turns on with the remote. How do I set it to turn on with the wall switch?


There are some fan models (particularly with a remote control) that use multiple cycles of a single power switch to select the operating mode. For example, if you simply flip the switch on, you get the fan. If you flip it on, then off, then on again within one second, you get the light. If you flip the switch on - off - on - off - on, you get both. The trick is to do it fast enough so the internal power circuit doesn't run out of capacitor charge and forget what you're trying to get it to do.

Im trying to install a a new ljy260 in may fan but I dont know which wire fo where


The black is the hot line, white is neutral, and blue is for the light. If the fan and the light are on separate switches at the wall, the black goes to the hot lead from the on/off switch and the blue goes to the hot lead from the light switch. If you are using the pull chains to operate the fan and the light once the wall switch is "ON", then the black (fan) and the blue (light kit) wires are connected together and tied to the hot from the wall switch.
Hope that this helps you.

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.

Those connections sound OK ,, now you have to go to the canopy and see if all the wires for the fan/light are connected to a house wire. If there are two switches , then the blue fan wire would connect to the red wire .. it may be capped off in the ceiling. If there is only one control switch , then the blue wire from the fan will connect to the same ceiling wire as the black fan wire does.

We are installing a lighting fixture on our Casablanca 4944D Concentra. We can get current across the various wires, but can not get the light to turn on. The colors of the wires are blue, black, red,...


On ceiling fans, the blue wire is designated for the accessory light kit. If you are using the Casablanca kit, it should be wired with a matching plug that just, well, plugs into the fan.

If you are adding another brand of light kit, you only need to connect the blue wire (hot/common) to the black wire of the light being attached, and the white (neutral) to the white wire of the light being attached.

Your fan will not have a pull chain/switch for the light attachment, as that is normally supplied pre-wired and installed in the light accessory.

If in doubt about about the wiring, contact Casablanca for a manual showing what light kits are acceptable for adding onto your particular fan model.

Also, please turn off the power before connecting the light kit to the fan.

Hope that helps and best regards!
