Question about Hampton Bay 24002 Ceiling Fan
Wiring/connecting wire from fan to house wire...not sure how to connect the colors.
this depends on where you live UK/USA et,c or other.
It is best to search the manufacturers site, to find installation codes/colours.
i.e USA use a lot Of Black and white. UK uses Red/Black Green/yellow.
And on houses that are rewired to 17th edition electrics ( UK ) the colours have now changed on mains twin and earth household Wiring. What Used to Be Red ( Live ) Is Now Brown. Black ( Nuetral ) Is now Blue. green/yellow is earth.
*** Important Note:- you should have several reds in a ceiling junction box or light fitting, these are circuit wires. ( Live From Light to next light ) The same as with Black ( Nuetral )
There will usually be 1 switch wire/Cable. this feeds a live from the switch, to the live power up to the light. many homes use a twin core and earth, from the light switch to the fitting. this may be black ( if a black/red ) has been used. *** Do not connect a black Switch wire with the remaining neutrals***
This will blow a fuse or trip a breaker.
Your solution:- connect the black neutral To the Black neutral cables ( more Than 1 at the ceiling Rose/fitting ) if there is a green/yellow or green ( this will be earth ) You may have 2 remaining Colours Possibly red and Blue or other. The Red Should be the switched Live. ( the single cable Red/Black with red tape around It ) This will be the switched Live. The remaining cable would probably be connected to the Bunch of Reds ( Constant Live ) As ceiling fans require a constant and switched live ( if the fan has lighting )
If in any doubt, consult a qualified or competant Electrician. *****And always remove or isolate the mains supply before attempting any installation*****. After the wiring is complete replace the fuse or switch on the breaker, to test your installation.
This information, is supplied by a fully competant electrician.
