Hi,

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.

Thankyou for using fixya.

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,

where did you connect the blue wire
I strongly suggest that you get in an accredited electrician as the wiring color code for house wiring is wrong and may have been done by a backyarder incorrectly

Your copper, green wire are the ground. I beleave that the white is the power, and the black is your neg. to make sure i would use a wire tester to determen the power. From there white goes to white, black to black, and green to copper. I am not sure on the white/black wire it maybe another power. Look at your instalation manual it should tell you.
Hope this can help.

Light only turns on with the remote. How do I set it to turn on with the wall switch?


There are some fan models (particularly with a remote control) that use multiple cycles of a single power switch to select the operating mode. For example, if you simply flip the switch on, you get the fan. If you flip it on, then off, then on again within one second, you get the light. If you flip the switch on - off - on - off - on, you get both. The trick is to do it fast enough so the internal power circuit doesn't run out of capacitor charge and forget what you're trying to get it to do.

I need a diagram for the wiring that goes from the fan to remote speed settings and then to electrical wires in ceiling


all of the white wires connect together and to the white house wiring (neutral from ceiling) ..also the neutral or return wire for the controller (may also be white) .. then the black house wiring(or red if you have an external wall switch) is connected to the controller wire marked AC or AC input .. the output marked "lamp" on the controller connects to the blue wire that goes to the light bulb (or bulbs) ... the output called fan goes to the black wire of the fan motor .. the green house wire goes to either a bare wire, green wire or a green bolt that is screwed to the metal of the fan.. thats the safety ground ...

Hunter ceiling fan


The usual house wiring for a ceiling fan with two wall switches , is white to white, black to black, and red to the other wire, usually blue or black striped with blue. If this fan has a remote , then it usually only requires one power wire, black and the white neutral.

Wiring for ceiling light


The wiring for a ceiling fan is usually pretty simple. The wires are connected color for color. that is black/lack, white/white , green to green or to the mounting bracket .. this color connection would also apply to the connections at the power source. If you have a light kit on the fan and two switches on the wall , then the red wire from the switch connects to the other wire on the fan, usually blue, if there is only one switch, or you are wiring it direct, then the black and blue wire both connect to the black power wire.

Put ceiling fan up, blades are not on yet.


No. 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
