If you are connecting the ground wire and causing the breaker to trip, that means that there is a short somewhere and the ground wire is completing the short. are you sure that you have the wiring correct? You should have a black and white wire coming from the breaker. Not sure what the wire colors of your fan are but always keep the white wires together. You should also check to see if there any cuts in the wires them selves. Another thing to check is disconnect the fan from the circuit, see if the light will then turn on with the ground wire attached and vise versa with the light, see if the fan will work by itself. Let me know what you find out.

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,

Need to know where to connect the red wire coming from the house to the fan motor


Red supposed to be the line (hot Wire) if you have a voltmeter try to verify this if not the other color has to be White that's the neutral and the green is the ground, now, on your fan you have the Light-wire, the Fan-wire usually they are black and red the neutral is white and the ground is no color (cooper), if you want to turn on the light and the fan separately you need to run another hot-wire and another switch if not

Red wire from the house to Light and Fan Wires

White wire from the house to white wire from the fan

And ground to ground

The only thing is that when you turn the wall switch on you have the light and the fan on you will have to turn either one off manually

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.

Box in ceiling has black wire and white wire & the ceiling fan has white wire, black wire and red wire.


BEFORE YOU PERFORM ANY CONNECTIONS BE SURE THAT THE CORRECT CIRCUIT BREAKER FOR THE BOX HAS BEEN TURNED OFF! You must check for voltage between the white and black wires at the ceiling box with each of your two wall switches toggled up or down ONE AT A TIME!
The green wire in the ceiling box (or bare copper wire) is your ground wire and should be connected to the green wire of the fan, and also should be mechanically connected to the electrical box by a screw or clip. If your system was wired correctly you should find that it already is connected to the box.
The white wire in the ceiling box is your neutral wire, so any and all white wires from the fan should be connected to it. You may have one for the fan motor and one for the light kit if there are two separate whites from the fan. Again, they may already be connected together in the fan/light assembly.
The black wire in the ceiling box is switched on and off from either of the two switches in the room, which I assume are located near two different doors to the room. These are called "three-way switches". They are not marked "on" and "off" on the toggle like any single-light switches in your home. That is why you must check for power at the ceiling box with the switches in each position one at a time to make sure that the circuit is de-energized.
Now for the connections:
You will need to connect both the red and black wires from the fan to the black wire from the electrical box. The black wire in your ceiling box is your "hot" wire and will provide power to both the fan motor (black wire) and to the light through the red wire--(sometimes this wire is blue, for others who are following this post).
With this arrangement, your fan and light will only operate with one or the other of your three-way switches completing the circuit from your breaker box. You will have to use the pull chains on the fan to control the fan and lights. So you will probably want to leave the light "pulled on" so that you can control the room lighting from either of your three-way switches, and operate your fan speeds from the pull chain. However, if you want your fan only on at night you will have to "pull off" the fan's light switch.
You may find all this switch flipping and chain pulling an inconvenience. If so, hire an electrician to install wiring so that the ceiling box will be "hot" all the time to the fan's black wire and the fan will therefore be operated by the pull chain only, and the light kit will be controlled by either of the three way switches, via the fan's red (or blue) wire.
One other caveat before you begin: you must make sure that the ceiling box is rated for and mounted sturdily so that it will support the weight of the fan and light kit. Many ceiling boxes are designed and mounted to support only a light-weight fixture. You don't want your fan to come crashing down from the ceiling!

If the fan works then you are getting power again to the fan so that's OK. The lights are wired off of the same wires that power the fan normally so that means the problem is in the light assembly. Now there are different ways that ceiling fans are wired and you will need to figure out which you have as it is important and you will need to know which wires do what.
Usually black wires are used for fan, blue is used for the light kit, white wire is used for the common or neutral for both, while green is used for mechanical ground. This is very important!
One way to wire a ceiling fan is for the power to be directly wired to the fan, which is usually hot. The black and blue wires are connected to each other through the hot feed and pull strings control the lights and fan.
Or a single switch powers the ceiling fan and the light. The black and blue wires are both connected to the black wire which is the one that is switched. So when you flip the switch both the light and fan are turned on.
There's also a method in which two switches are separately wired to the ceiling fan and the fan light, with a 3-way conductor linked from the switch box. The black wire or that of the fan is linked to the fan wire while the light wire is connected to the switched wire from light switch. Meanwhile the white and ground wires are linked to their respective wires from the switch.
Now considering you blew the breaker odds are you have a short in the light kit wiring or the switch itself. Either way, turn off the power! Then remove the light kit by taking out the screws holding it on the ceiling fan. Then look to see if anything has come loose or black scorch marks anywhere. Now the problem area should be obvious. If you cannot see the problem then you should stop right there and get a replacement light kit. They are easy to replace and inexpensive. Leaving a shorted kit on the fan has the capacity to make the entire fan hot and provide a very painful if not fatal shock to anyone touching the fan body if the breaker doesn't blow.

If you have only a black and white (and bare ground wire) in the ceiling box where the old fan was connected before, you should connect both the blue and black wires from the fan to the Black (common) wire in the ceiling box.

Then connect the white wire from the fan to the white (neutral) wire in the box together. Connect the green and bare wires together (Ground wires) and the fan and light should function with the pull chains as designed.

IF you have a wall switch for the ceiling fan and a separate one for the light, it is simply a matter of making the connections for the light and fan to the proper wires going to the wall switch box. Typically, the ceiling fan's light wire (blue in most cases) is connected to the red wire in the ceiling box, while the fan wire (black in most cases) is connected to the black wire in the ceiling box. Connect the white wires together; and then the green and bare wires together for your ground and you should be set.

Remember to disconnect the power to this circuit by turning off the breaker before doing any wiring work.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Trip the breaker and verify that the fan/light will not operate. If tripping the breaker kills the circuit and flipping the wall switch would not, the switch is probably bypassed. Place the wall switch to "off" with the breaker tripped to the "off" position as well. Gain access to your wiring connections at the fan. Look for a single (black) wire that is not connected. This should be your hot return from the wall switch Make your fan/light connections to this wire. (Are you sure that the ground wire that you connected is a ground? If it is, it should be bare copper with no insulation). Your white (neutral) connection to the three white wires should be fine. If you don't find a single wire in the ceiling box, call on an electrician. Regards --WoobieDog--

Wiring a ceiling fan w/light


To add to red54's comments:

This is what I believe you have:

- one source in the ceiling box (black & white)

- one donwline circuit in ceiling box going to another wall/ceiling box (black&white)

- on switch wire in ceiling box coming from your wall switch (black & white) -- this is the white wire which will be hot when the switch is truned on

Here's how it should be connected:

- all 3 blacks in ceiling box connected together -- no other wires in this bundle

- white wire (which is hot when switched) coming from switch connects to the black/blackwhite fan wires

- connect all reamining white wires together in bundle

- connect all ground wires together

It's that simple. Trick is figuring out, of the three cables in the ceiling box, which is source, which is downline, which is switch.
Maybe red54's procedure can help you figure that out.

Wiring a Hampton Bay ceiling fan


Hi Rexter,

I would pull the cover off of the Light switch and look at the color of the wire leaving the Variable speed device. I only assume the red wire is from that. I do not like to assume anything. So you must verify that a red wire leaves the Variable speed device. If it does, then i am assuming you dim the lights with this Variable device. The fan has its own built in Variable speed setup. In the case that the red wire belongs to the variable device, wire the Red to Blue(light), and Black to Black Whites to white. Green to Ground. bare wires to ground.
