SOURCE: how to wire a ceiling fan

What you need to do is take the plate off at the switch on the wall. There shoulld be black wires and white wires. Attach a resistant tester to the white wires, and connect a long wire to the other probe of the tester. then touch the long wire to one of the black wires at the ceiling. If you are lucky, you might get the right black one on the first try. If not, touch the other black one, and that should be the white wire. Have the electric off to test this. When you find which is the white, or common, read the instruction manual and see which of the brown or greenyellow is designated white. I think these colored wires are at the bottom where the lights connect. At the top of the fan should be a white, blue, black and green wire. The Black wire from the ceiling will attach to the hot black and blue for the lights of the fan. The black wire which you discover to be actually white from the switch should be connectied to the white wire of the fan at the top. The red wire sometimes is used to connect to the blue wire so that you have a switch at the wall for the light and one for the fan. That is an old way of wiring fans. Joe

SOURCE: Trying to replace 3 speed ceiling fan switch

Hello,

The black goes to the L connection the others are a guess. You can do this two ways. Connect the colored wires in any sequence and then see what switch sequence give you high and lowest, the other one will be medium. Once you determine that, mark the wires with a piece of masking tape as high, medium and low. Otherwise you connect them, turn power on and use a multimeter to see which color gives you the highest voltage and which gives you lowest. Since you aren't comfortable using live wires and a meter, go with the first option and use the process of elimination to find the wires giving you the speeds you need to find the highest and lowest. Next, you need to determine how your switch sequence works. First pull has to give you highest speed. so you may end up wiring them in reverse if your first attempt is backwards. There is a reason the first pull needs to be highest, it powers up the motor so you can then chose a lower setting. A low setting first will over tax your motor and wear it out eventually as it has to work harder at first.

Let me know if you need further clarification and perhaps this is all you need to get fixed.

Regards,
Worldvet
ps I checked on the Internet of a wiring diagram and I bet you did tok all to no avail.

SOURCE: Ceiling fan wiring Aloha ceiling Fan Model # 29079

I have an Aloha Breeze L-Style 52" Ceiling Fan(Polished Brass), Model # 29079 Bought From Wal-Mart about 1 1/2 years ago and the fan speed switch busted and the capacitor melted. I have a new switch but can't find a new capacitor because I can't read the spec info. Looking for a place to obtain the correct capacitor for this fan so I can make necessary repairs!

I can only guess since I don't know what model or what color wires you have. Here's wiring for single stack switch on some Hunters;

L- black
1 - grey
2 - brown
3 - green
Hope this helps.

Ceiling fan reconnection.


Should have four wires going into switch if it's a three speed. What make/model of fan do you have. If you bought a new speed switch off a rack somewhere most likely you have the wrong switch. Just because it looks the same on the outside (switch) doesn't mean it's the same on the inside.

Need a basic diagram to wire a ceiling fan.


Depending on how your place is wired will dictate the solution here.

The light box in your ceiling should have two or three wires. Black and White, or Red, Black and White.

If you have two wires (one switch to control everything):
Black is power - hook this to the fan's power wire (and the fan's light wire if applicable)
White is neutral - hook this to the fan's neutral wire.

If you have three wires (two separate switches):
Red is power for the light - hook this to the fan's light wire if applicable
Black is for the fan - hook this to the fan's motor
White is neutral - hook this to the fan's neutral wire.
