Question about Heating & Cooling
I have two light switches in one box. wired for two light fixtures. I want to remove one switch and make it an outlet. how is this wired?
Most likely you can't unless there is a neutral wire in the box too. The wires going to the switch cannot be connected directly to an outlet because there is not a complete circuit for an outlet.

The green wire is ground, the white is neutral, and the black it hot. I really do not understand the question, as the pull chain for the light switch is black and usually there is like blue wire for the lighting kit( which is marked light) as the light sits under the fan housing. The power is wired up top black to black , white to white, and green to ground. Unless you are using two switches one for the light and the other for the fan. I hope this helped Tim

well if you want to control the oulet with the switch yes you can , by running a jumper from the switch load side wich is on the top of the switch and has the leters off to the hot side of the receptacle but if the receptacle is hot from a diferent source or circuit you will need to disable that hot wire from the receptacle to be able to control it with the switch.......

if its a duel switch that controls lights, and the fan seperately. sounds like the power for the lights is going directly to the fan, and therefore making the lights work also. also check out switch, make sure power is only going to the lights, with light switch on.

Unfortunately, Mark it's really not as simple as it sounds, to connect the wires properly. Because of that third red traveler wire for the 3-way switch. Actually, ceiling fans don't work well, when a 3-way switch is involved, because it was designed only for lighting convenience. When the fan is turned on, the other ceiling lights will start to glow, whether they are ON or not..
You would be much better served if you can locate another line to come off of and wire to that. Of course,y you won't have the convenience of a wall switch to operate it. But, that's what the pull chains on the fan are for.
Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.
