You have 3 options. You can connect the fan blue and the fan black to the red ceiling wire. Then you will need to control the fan and light with the strings. The wall switch will turn off everything. Option 2 is make sure that there is a switch wired to the black ceiling wire. If there is a switch I would check to make sure the switch is working. Option 3 is to purchase a remote control unit for both and leave the wall switch to shutoff the whole unit. Hope this helps.

Hello. Yhe most common combination for this wire combination is: L - White, 1- Black, 2 - Blue, 3 - Yellow . However this is assuming your 77021 (the fan) has three speeds and the pullchain has four wires. Here's a link to some very good troubleshooting advice: http://www.ceiling-fans-n-more.com/ceiling-fan-pullchain-replacement-and-repair.php

Question posted under 3-speed switch

1) Are you replacing the 3-speed switch?
This is a field with much discussion because Westinghouse 4-wire fan switches vary.
Process of elimination is needed to find hot line. From there you test each wire to the hot line wire to determine which wire or combination of wires makes up low, medium, and high speed.
Open following links for some resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-Cooper-277-pilot-light-switch.html#3-speed
http://www.ceiling-fans-n-more.com/ceiling-fan-pullchain-replacement-and-repair.php
http://www.atlantalightbulbs.com/ecart/catalog/westinghouse-6.html

2) Or are you looking at fan connection wiring at ceiling?
Green wire goes to bare ground.
Fan should have hot and neutral.

Hot line should be black.
Neutral should be white.

Red usually goes to light
Blue is normally not there.

Where is the white neutral wire?

Take multimeter set to read ohms and test black wire to each other wire.
Process of elimination should reveal correct wiring.

I am trying to install a ceiling fan and from the ceiling I have a copper white and black wire. Now from the fan itself there is a black blue and white wire. Not sure where to connect the copper wire.


Good question, proper wiring is a crucial virtue that needs to be one hundred percent accurate.

Three wires showing from the ceiling lamp fixture harness, positive, negative, and ground.

The negative wire is the white wire,
The Hot wire (positive) is the wire of brighter color than known negative,
220V AC (alternating current) home wiring to(" duplex outlet switch, GFI switch, single/dual pole light switch, lamp fixtures,") the Hot wire or lead, is normally Black, the lighter color, or White is neutral or neggative,
Neutral wire (completes circuit) allows current flow to continue through to other parts of house, Alternating current.

The Ground wire is usually wrapped in green color, or unmarked copper.

The copper wire from the ceiling will need to be grounded to the metal bracket on the new light fixture, a gold or silver screw, sometimes tagged with green, is the proper grounding location, Any place on Metal not attached to ceiling bracket, Ground should be attached to metal on fan,

White wire from Fan is neutral, Negative.
Black wire from Fan is Hot Wire, Positive,
If Blue wire from Fan is Not Manufacture spliced, Meaning no Copper is exposed, Wire is not used, Blue wire is NOT ground,
If Fan has a light, Voltage from Hot Black wire will supply both light and fan functions,

Safety First.
flip off breaker switch to the room fan is being installed.

Doubble Check
Black^Black wire connection is secure.

White^White neutral wire connection is secure.

Ground is fastened securely to metal or wrapped under a screw.

Using splice caps is recomended, The plastic shell encloses the wire connection ensuring No stray copper is exposed, limits possibility of cross wiring.

Google the brand of fan being installed, and Check wire color code, and wiring diagram, Info good to have, and checking twice will only guarantee Lamp Fixture Install Well Done.

(Blue wire may be there for installing multiple ceiling fixtures in a loop circuit, so all controlled by same light switch.)


Enjoy Your New Fan,

Ceiling fan wiring diagrams


Most usually you will have four wires. One raw copper, one white. One blue and one black. The raw copper would mount to the casing (usually to a green screw) this will be what is called an earth ground. It will divert any stray voltage to the outside ground rod. The white wire is called a neutral ground wire. It goes to the white wire in your casing of the fan/light. This wire goes to your breaker box ground terminal. The blame wire will be your positive (hot) wire to your light section. Connect it to the black wire coming from the ceiling box. Do not put your wire nut and or tape on yet. Connect the blue wire to the black wire connection. The black wire that is in the ceiling box is the positive (hot) wire from your wall switch which comes from your breaker box. Occasionally you may find two switches on the wall, one for the light and the other for the fan. In this event you will have two sets of wires in the ceiling box. Use the black one on one of the black fan/light wire and the other black wire in the ceiling box connect it to the blue wire. If there is another white wire, connect it to the other white wire. Do the same with the raw copper wire. NEVER CONNECT A WHITE WIRE TO A BLACK WIRE. OR A RAW COPPER WIRE TO A BLACK WIRE. THIS WOULD CREATE A DIRECT SHORT AND ELECTROCUTION COULD OCCURE. Turn your power back on when you have completed your job and check each switch. If the switches are not in the location you prefer, turn you power back off and either reverse the location of the switches in the wall box or you can reverse the blue and black wires in the ceiling box.

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 !

Does the blue wires connect to the black or white wires? I cannot find the instruction booklet. Thanks


Hi, At the fan you'll have a black wire, blue wire, green wire and white wire.
In the ceiling you'll have a black wire, a white wire, and a bare copper wire. If you are using the same wall switch to turn on all of the power to the fan AND the light, connect as follows:
White at ceiling to white from fan
Black at ceiling to black and blue together from fan.
Bare copper wire at ceiling to green wire from fan.

When connected like this, the main power is from the switch, and the fan and light may be set by the pull switches on the fan.

The top wires, black, white, and green are the ones to hook to just run the fan. The blue wire is wired with the black at the top if you want the lights to work. At the light kit, the blue and white wires power the lights.

Green and copper are the ground wires and I believe you can connect both these to the green wire from the fan (I only have the copper wire in the actual ceiling box). Black and Red can be treated as both black and both can be connected to the black wire from the fan (this is what I did in all my fans and it worked). White is the neutral wire and can be connected to the white wire from the fan (this is what I did in all my fans and it worked).

My ceiling box has the copper, red, black, and white wires. The ceiling plate for the fan I bought had a green wire. I connected the green wire from the ceiling plate and the copper wire from the ceiling box to the green wire from the fan.

One black wire on the switch hooked to the black sources wire. The other black wire on the switch hooked black up to the fan. The green on the switch wire goes to the bare wire. If there is bare wire you can use the white wire.
