My switch broke, so I'm in the process of replacing it.

Before taking it apart, I made note of the wire colors:

L=Black
1=Grey
2=Brown
3=Lt Blue


Good luck!

SOURCE: Replace exhaust fan with fan & light?

Let's say you originally only had one switch (to operate the fan). And at the fan you have only one black, one white, and one ground (bare or green). You can still put in a fan/light combo. but both the light and the fan will always come on together when you flip the switch. To do this you'd connect the black from the switch to the black AND the blue on the fan and connect the white from the switch to both whites on the fan and connect the ground from the switch to either a green or bare wire on the fan or to a green screw on the fan housing somewhere (whatever is available).

I did not make a diagram when replacing the light switch


Red from switch goes to two blacks, blue from switch goes to two blacks and the black wire goes thru top of light and attaches to blue fan light wire. If you want a good fan, look for blade pitch(13 degree or higher)Or CFM's above 5500 on high.

I understand that the black and blue wire can be connected to the black wire in my ceiling. ok fair enough. However, in my new bedroom, there is 2 switches on the wall that apparently control two black...


A ceiling fan requires a neutral wire (white), a ground wire (green), a hot wire for the fan (black), and on fans with light kits a hot wire for the lights (blue). These examples will assume that a lighting kit is going to be used, but if it is not terminations to the blue wire are not required and the circuit is greatly simplified The ceiling fan and light can also be wired through switches. When a single switch is used to connect to the ceiling fan and light the ceiling fan (black) and light (blue) would both be connected to the switched black wire. In this configuration turning the switch on would power both the light and ceiling fan. In order to turn just one off, the pull strings would have to be used. The problem with this approach, is that when the pull strings have been used to turn the light or ceiling fan off, turning the switch back on will not work until the pull string is pulled again .
The ceiling fan and light can also be wired through two switches. This would generally be two separate switches, one for the fan and one for the light. This would generally be a 3 conductor w/ground coming from the switch box. The ceiling fan (black) wire would connect to the switched black wire from the ceiling fan switch, the light wire (blue) would connect to the switched red wire from the light switch and the neutral (white) and ground (bare) would connect to the their associated wires..

How to wire this fan


The wiring on most paddle / ceiling fans id such:

White = Fan and Light neutral or "common"
Black = Fan line voltage or "hot"
Blue = Light line voltage or "hot"
Green = safety ground

If you are replacing an existing light fixture - be sure to replace the ceiling box with one designed for use with a fan - as per electrical code. If the existing box had only 2 wires (or 3 counting the ground) that connected to the old light fixture and it was controlled from a wall switch, the wiring would be fixture white to ceiling white, fixture black and fixture blue to ceiling black (or red) and fixture green to ceiling bare ground or connected to the metal box. This would power both the fan and light whenever the wall switch was on and the pull chains for each were also on. This is also the preferred wiring for replacement of a pull chain type light fixture (no wall switch present).

If there are other wires in the box that previously were not connected to the old light fixture, using a meter or tester - determine if there is constant power between the ceiling white wire and any of the these other wires (test with the wall switch on and off to be sure). If you do have constant power available, you might consider using the wall switch to control only the light, and using the pull chain to operate the fan (or vice-versa). Simply connect the black (for fan) or the blue (for light) to the "constant power on" wire and that part of the fixture will work by pull chain only - regardless of the wall switch position. If the fan can be shut off by the wall switch, it is very important that the wall switch remain a toggle (or on / off switch), do NOT replace with a dimmer type switch.

If you'd prefer to operate the fan and light completely independently of each other - you can purchase a 3rd party fan & light remote control device for between $30 - $50.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thanks!

House wireing red,white,black. how do i hook up a cealingfan with light kit pull chain on.


For starters, look at the wall switch. Are there two switches? If so, connect the black wire from the ceiling box to the black wire from the fan. Connect the red wire from the ceiling box to the blue wire from the fan. Connect white to white. At the fan, usually the black wire goes to the fan and the blue wire goes the the light.

If there is only one wall switch, you may or may not want to install a double switch so the fan and light can be controlled separately. If there is only one wall switch, most people just connect the wire connected to that switch (usually the black) to both the black and blue from the fan, not using the red at all. In that scenario both the light and the fan are switch at the fan as needed after the wall switch is operated.

Installing the extra red wire is not usual practice, someone actually was planning for future use and convenience.

Trying to connect a ceiling fan light kit. I connected the blue wire from the fan kit to the black wire in the light kit and then connected the white wire from the fan kit to the white wire in the light...


Those connections sound OK ,, now you have to go to the canopy and see if all the wires for the fan/light are connected to a house wire. If there are two switches , then the blue fan wire would connect to the red wire .. it may be capped off in the ceiling. If there is only one control switch , then the blue wire from the fan will connect to the same ceiling wire as the black fan wire does.

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 .

Replacing a ceiling fan pull chain light switch.


that is strange
normally a 3 wire switch could only be able to control 2 things + off. black would be common, red would be one fan speed or set of lights and blue would be the other fan speed or set of lights.
if it is a replacement, couldn't you just hook it up like the switch you are removing?

most likely the black wires are grounds for everything and white would be power. hook it up however you like. white power would hook up to the black wire on the switch and then the blue to one light and red to the other set of lights white wires.
good luck!
