What you need to do is take the plate off at the switch on the wall. There shoulld be black wires and white wires. Attach a resistant tester to the white wires, and connect a long wire to the other probe of the tester. then touch the long wire to one of the black wires at the ceiling. If you are lucky, you might get the right black one on the first try. If not, touch the other black one, and that should be the white wire. Have the electric off to test this. When you find which is the white, or common, read the instruction manual and see which of the brown or greenyellow is designated white. I think these colored wires are at the bottom where the lights connect. At the top of the fan should be a white, blue, black and green wire. The Black wire from the ceiling will attach to the hot black and blue for the lights of the fan. The black wire which you discover to be actually white from the switch should be connectied to the white wire of the fan at the top. The red wire sometimes is used to connect to the blue wire so that you have a switch at the wall for the light and one for the fan. That is an old way of wiring fans. Joe

Here are the Pin outs for different mics that will work with your radio. If a wire is not listed then you cut it off. It's best to keep the wires as short as possible no longer than a half inch is suggested. Normally the Cobra pin out is standard for most radios.

Stock - 1- Shield (Ground) 2- Yellow (Audio) 3- Red (Transmit) 4- White (Receive)

Astatic - (4 wire) 1- Shield 2- White 3- Red 4- Black

Astatic - (6 wire) 1- Shield & Blue 2- White 3- Red 4- Black Yellow NC

Daiwa EM-500, Cobra, CA Series - 1- Shield & Black 2- Red 3- White 4- Blue

Galaxy DC-521S - (4 wire) 1- Shield 2- Yellow 3- Red 4- Black

Wiring diagram for a 3 way ceiling pull switch.


These fans are manufactured by a number of overseas companies and sold exclusively by Home Depot. They do not have a standard color code for the fan switch. What you can do is turn off the power, keep the white neutral connected. Then using the black power wire fro the ceiling, take one of the switch wires and connect to that black, turn the power on and observe the speed .. low mark it 1, medium mark it 2, high mark it 3. Repeat untill you have identified all the speed wires. Then connect these wires to the 1,2,3, terminations of your new switch

Replacing a pull chain 3-way ceiling fan light switch


OK .. the thick black and white are the power for the fan , are there also white wires on the lamp sockets ..??
The thick black wire should connect to the black wire on the switch.
The small black wires connect to the red and blue wire on the switch .. two small black wires each .. that should give you a position for 2 lights , and 4 lights, on the step switch .. but there should be white wires from the lamp sockets connected to the thick white from the fan .

please respond .

Wiring problem


If they only way to fit your cable is by using the terminal push on connector (which, frankly, i'm not 100% sure what that's describing) and you can easily get that from your hardware store then yes, as long as you can connect up your wires without difficult and without stray copper.

Red wire is live, but white may be live as well during one aspect of operation. Usually neutral is black or blue. If your cable has red white and blue color in it then your using a 3 phase cable. A single phase 3 core cable will have red/brown black/blue green/greenyellow.

Hope this helps. Let me know.
