As you were assembling the wire from the fan motor to the house wiring, there should have been two wires labled. One would have been labeled "FAN" and the other "LIGHT". To properly attach the wires, (be sure the power is off) twist the thin labeled black (FAN) and blue (LIGHT) wires together. Now attach those two twisted wires to the black house wiring with one of the supplied wiring cap. Finally attach the thin white wire to the white house wire with supplied wiring cap. Your fan is now ready for operation. If you had performed all these steps when you first assembled the fan, then the thin black wire going to the fan has come loose. Should your ceiling fan still not run after all that, then it's time to return it where you bought it because either the pull chain switch is defective or the manufacturer produced a defective piece of merchandise. If you found any of my suggestions to be helpfull, please rate my solution. Thanks D. Lange

Just tried to install the fan and light, it doesn't work when power is connected. I have 2 white house wires, none black. I have rechecked the connections, no power to the fan


the white wires are returns they dont supply power .. you may have to take the fan back down in order to find the black or red wire that supplys AC power .. a red wire would come from a wall switch .. the black wire would usually be 120 VAC .. be careful .. you must first turn off power before working with that live wire .. the white wires are always paired with a black wire and a bare wire (safety ground) .. perhaps the black wire just got covered up when the fan was installed .. the black (or red) house wire should be connected to the black and blue wires of the fan .. the white wires should all be connected together .. the bare wire should be attached to the green wire or bolted to the fan housing ..

I have three house wires supplied- white, red, and


make sure power is off before working on the fan wiring ..(trip circuit breaker)

here is what the house wires are
1. black is hot (power) all the time .. its normally connected to the black wire of the fans speed control switch .. that is normally operated by a pull chain ..

2. red is the same power as black except it comes from a wall switch .. this would be connected to the blue wire in the fan (that goes to its light) .. that will allow you to turn the light on an off from the wall switch ..

3. white is neutral .. it connects to both white wires inside the fan .. one goes to the fan the other goes to the light. .. if there is more than one light bulb then there will be more white wires .. hook them all together and to the white house wiring ..

4 then there is safety ground .. usually green or bare copper ... that is connnected to either a green wire inside the fan or bolted to the metal of the fan (often a green bolt is provided) .. the green wire is not required for the fan to run but is required as a safety to make sure no one gets shocked on the fans metal parts ..

after you wire the fan ..then turn on the wall switch .. if the light doesnt light then pull its pull chain until it does .. you can then tie up or remove that chain to prevent anyone from changing that position since you can now control the light from the wall switch you dont need that chain anymore .. the fan should come on slow med and high then off .. each time you pull its chain ..

connect the house wires red to red and black to black , then a house4 white to the ]fan white , the other house white connects to both the black and blue from the fan .. to be exactly correc the white fan wire should be connected to the white house wire that is the white power wire from the electrical panel.,

Installing a universal remote on a ceiling fan.


your remote modual should have two or three wires coming from the unit on one side to go to the fixture and three on the other to hook it to power , the three should be to connect to the black (power), the white (Neutral) and green (ground), now the unit has power. The two or three coming from the other side should be a white and two other colors or two the same , black, red, or blue, The white connects to the fan white and the other two go to, one the fan and two the light.
