Sounds like the wattage limiter. Use the correct wattage or the light won't work correctly.

Ceiling fan and light kit installation 4 wires 3/1 (red, black, white) from electrical box to 3 wire (black, white. green) from fan. How do the wires connect?


I'm assuming from your question the 4th wire in your electrical box is a bare copper wire which is the ground. The green wire gets wire-nutted to that. The white wires get wire-nutted together. I'm guessing you have two switches installed in the wall for the fan because there is a black and red wire coming from your electrical box (one for the light and one for the fan) connect the two black wires together. The red wire is then connected to the blue wire in the fan which is the light.

Where does neutral wire go at end of circuit?


If there is only a white and black and ground coming into the box from the fixture then that white is probably really a black. The black is hot, meaning it has power. The white takes the power back to the light. If you can open the light fixture box and see what wires power the light.

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!

The problem is not your remote on the fan. It is the light kit. We have the same problem and our electrician diagnosed it as the light kit. This problem started just out of warranty, of course, and we are now purchasing a new light kit to fix the problem.

Wiring diagram for harbor breeze celing fan


The colors of the wires in the Harbor Breeze ceiling fan kits tell you what their functions are. The black wire is hot for the fan, the white is a common wire for both the fan and the light kit, green is ground and blue is hot for the light kit. locate the black and blue wires from the ceiling fan and connect them to the black wire inside the electrical junction box by twisting an orange wire connector onto all three wires. Locate the white wire from the ceiling fan and the white wire from the junction box and attach the two wires together with a wire connector. Connect the bare copper wire onto the green wire from the ceiling fan mounting bracket by twisting an orange wire connector onto the two wires. Push all wiring inside the electrical box. good-day !

I am installing a light kit to a hunter Original paddle fan. The neutral -white in the fan is marked for a light kit but I cannot figure which is the black or hot wire in the fan


Here is the information given to me by a Hunter rep when I worked at the big box store.
(901) 248-2259 Technical/ Parts
or parts/ technical service (901) 248-2327
As a side note, most fans use the White and Blue wires to supply power to the light kit.
The blue generally attaches to the Black wire when installing light kits, and the
White to White.
Hope this is useful.

When wiring up the light, blue wire for the light should connect to the black wire in electrical box, correct


connect white wire from light kit to white wire labeled "for light" then connect black wires from light kit filter to blue wire from fan. Use wire nuts to make the connections

Does the blue wires connect to the black or white wires? I cannot find the instruction booklet. Thanks


Hi, At the fan you'll have a black wire, blue wire, green wire and white wire.
In the ceiling you'll have a black wire, a white wire, and a bare copper wire. If you are using the same wall switch to turn on all of the power to the fan AND the light, connect as follows:
White at ceiling to white from fan
Black at ceiling to black and blue together from fan.
Bare copper wire at ceiling to green wire from fan.

When connected like this, the main power is from the switch, and the fan and light may be set by the pull switches on the fan.
Best regards, --W/D-- Please feel free to rate this solution... thanx!
