SOURCE: 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.

We just recently installed a harbor breeze ceiling fan w/light and remote. During a storm the lights just quit working. What can we do?


Power outages cause ceiling fans to suffer memory loss. The basic "cure" is to disconnect fan power at the source and, while waiting a few minutes, remove the remote battery and press all buttons to verify that none are stuck. Reinstall the battery and test operation. Other factors may affect restored operation such as using wall switches and pulling the chains. The simple brain in the fan canopy can't remember switch and/or pull chain settings at the instant of power loss.

How to wire this fan


The wiring on most paddle / ceiling fans id such:

White = Fan and Light neutral or "common"
Black = Fan line voltage or "hot"
Blue = Light line voltage or "hot"
Green = safety ground

If you are replacing an existing light fixture - be sure to replace the ceiling box with one designed for use with a fan - as per electrical code. If the existing box had only 2 wires (or 3 counting the ground) that connected to the old light fixture and it was controlled from a wall switch, the wiring would be fixture white to ceiling white, fixture black and fixture blue to ceiling black (or red) and fixture green to ceiling bare ground or connected to the metal box. This would power both the fan and light whenever the wall switch was on and the pull chains for each were also on. This is also the preferred wiring for replacement of a pull chain type light fixture (no wall switch present).

If there are other wires in the box that previously were not connected to the old light fixture, using a meter or tester - determine if there is constant power between the ceiling white wire and any of the these other wires (test with the wall switch on and off to be sure). If you do have constant power available, you might consider using the wall switch to control only the light, and using the pull chain to operate the fan (or vice-versa). Simply connect the black (for fan) or the blue (for light) to the "constant power on" wire and that part of the fixture will work by pull chain only - regardless of the wall switch position. If the fan can be shut off by the wall switch, it is very important that the wall switch remain a toggle (or on / off switch), do NOT replace with a dimmer type switch.

If you'd prefer to operate the fan and light completely independently of each other - you can purchase a 3rd party fan & light remote control device for between $30 - $50.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thanks!

The remote controls the fan speed but wont dim or control the light. the unit wont work if the light switch is off so I cant use the fan at all unless the light is turned on


mcdevito75 here, Generally the Ceiling fan motor is hooked up by-passing the wall switch but still to the hot laed going to the wall switch whlie the lights are hooked up to the hot lead after the wall switch, So without the remote, Manually operate your fan and lights. First with the wall switch off the fan should work and the lights no work. Now turn the fan off with the pull chain on the fan shroud close to the ceiling. Now turn wall switch on and lights should work with wall switch and the fan should also work. if so, re-program the remote or change the batteries or even re--place the remote.

Pull chain for fan difficult to operate


All Hunter ceiling fans are "remote control" adaptable. Consider a remote control for it.
There are Nylon pull strings fitted with a ball clasps on the ends. Consider that, too.

Connected wires following instructions, but lights and fan do not work


OK, here we go. Hi, WoobieDog here. First, try to operate the pull chains on the side of the fan, usually one for the fan, one for the light. If this doesn't fix the problem, proceed as follows. What else is on the same circuit as the fan? Usually there is more than one light on a circuit. Do the other devices still work? If NO, the problem is probably your breaker. If the other devices do work, the problem is probably at the fan or the wall switch. Trip the breaker on the circuit that the fan operates on, and turn the switch to "off " at the wall. With the fan still mounted, gain access to the wires at the ceiling. Where you connected the wires, test for loose connections and visually inspect each wiring connection. When you remove each wire nut, you should see both wires making a good connection to each other and that the wire nut was making the twisted wire connection more secure. Make sure that you have connected the wires in the proper manner, that is that the fan motor wire (usually black) is connected to the proper switch at the wall for on/off operation and that the light wire (usually blue) is either connected to the light switch or to the same hot line as the motor wire if you are using the pull chains and a single wall switch. Don't overlook the neutral (white wire) connection, as a bad connection on this line will prevent both the motor and the light from working, as you described. If all is well there, close the wires back up under the mounting bracket. With the breaker still tripped to the off position, operate the forward/reverse slide switch on the side of the fan, if equipped. Put everything at the fan back to operating conditions. Turn the breaker back on. Operate the wall switch/switches. Operate the pull chains as these are additional switches inside of the fan and light.
Hope this was helpful. --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

Pull Chains Replacement


Replacements are available at Home Depot and Lowes. This is a regular 4-wire single-layer switch.

Mark the old wires, so you know which ports they go to in the switch (marked L, 1, 2, and 3) -- then remove the old wires by pressing a paper clip into the hole of each wire while pulling firmly on the wire. Then just push the wires into the new switch, into the marked holes.

I hope this helps! If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask!
