Sounds like another wire connection for having two each. Here's what US AC electrical wiring:
Usually black or red = HOT
White = Neutral (current carrying)
Green = Ground

SOURCE: wiring ceiling fans to wall switch

Hi Bigelow,

You need two switches.  It sounds like the Electrician set up the junction box for two circuits(Lights and Fans).  i say this because your supply has 4 wires, Red , Black, White and Bare. We may be able to oversome this with one Lutron Switch. Allow me to investigate, and I will be back.

SOURCE: wiring a ceiling fan with a remote sensor

since you have a remote, you don't need that extra wiring for the light/fan. just wire nut it off.
the switch at wall has 2 switches but only one will work now.

SOURCE: How to wire a remote control ceiling fan, without using remote.

If you don't want the to use the remote you don't have to, but you don't have enough wires to switch the upper light, the lower light, and the fan. You can, however, switch the upper and lower lights together if that's okay. In order to do that you'd connect the white from the ceiling box to the white (neutral) on the fan, then the green from the ceiling box to any green(ground) wires on the fan, then the black from the ceiling box to the black(motor) from the fan, then the red from the ceiling box to the blue and orange (lights) from the fan. I'm assuming that the black and red in the ceiling box are also in the switch box where the fan/light control switch is going. Those are the ones you'll connect to the controller.

SOURCE: I have three house wires supplied- white, red, and

make sure power is off before working on the fan wiring ..(trip circuit breaker)

here is what the house wires are
1. black is hot (power) all the time .. its normally connected to the black wire of the fans speed control switch .. that is normally operated by a pull chain ..

2. red is the same power as black except it comes from a wall switch .. this would be connected to the blue wire in the fan (that goes to its light) .. that will allow you to turn the light on an off from the wall switch ..

3. white is neutral .. it connects to both white wires inside the fan .. one goes to the fan the other goes to the light. .. if there is more than one light bulb then there will be more white wires .. hook them all together and to the white house wiring ..

4 then there is safety ground .. usually green or bare copper ... that is connnected to either a green wire inside the fan or bolted to the metal of the fan (often a green bolt is provided) .. the green wire is not required for the fan to run but is required as a safety to make sure no one gets shocked on the fans metal parts ..

after you wire the fan ..then turn on the wall switch .. if the light doesnt light then pull its pull chain until it does .. you can then tie up or remove that chain to prevent anyone from changing that position since you can now control the light from the wall switch you dont need that chain anymore .. the fan should come on slow med and high then off .. each time you pull its chain ..

Twist the current pairs together and then twist the white (neutral) to your red pair, the black (hot) to black, and green (ground) to green.

Hi, firstly dont think for a miniute that the black wire on your new light is the earth, using the battery as a power source put one of the wires to earth and the other to live, as the led light will only work if the power is conected to the rite pole it is important to establish wich of the new wires is earth, you may have to swap them around to get the correct order, and then conect each of the other wires to the batt poss to check the lite works,when you are happy you have the correct order you can fit it to the bike, on the kawasaki blk and yellow is earth , although you have 6wires they are only 3wires in the loom wich double up to 6 for the 2 bulbs in the lite unit, you can leave 1 of eah colour disconected,

Ceiling rose nt working


Look for the manufacturer's wiring on line or if the product is still available ask a merchant to permit you to copy the schematic from a similar product as yours. If they want future or continued service to you they will most likely accommodate you.
If that does not work, have a certified electrician look at it to sort out the three black and four earth wires.

Red wire is the live wire, black wire is the dead wire, white wire is the earth wire.
Now its the black and the red wire we are to play with. take a two wire cable, let the wires be red and black in the new cable, connect the red and the black cables of the new cable to the corresponding red and black wires of the old cable i.e. the new cable is to be connected parallel to the old cable(the connections can be made by ripping the old cable from any point) now connect a switch to the other end of the red wire. attach the terminal of the bulb to:
1) the the other terminal of the switch
2) the other end of the black wire

Wiring/connecting wire from fan to home ceiling


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.
