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: 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 .

I have a westinghuse fan with light it has four wires on it green, blue, black, and red what are they ie live neutral etc


Question posted under 3-speed switch

1) Are you replacing the 3-speed switch?
This is a field with much discussion because Westinghouse 4-wire fan switches vary.
Process of elimination is needed to find hot line. From there you test each wire to the hot line wire to determine which wire or combination of wires makes up low, medium, and high speed.
Open following links for some resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-Cooper-277-pilot-light-switch.html#3-speed
http://www.ceiling-fans-n-more.com/ceiling-fan-pullchain-replacement-and-repair.php
http://www.atlantalightbulbs.com/ecart/catalog/westinghouse-6.html

2) Or are you looking at fan connection wiring at ceiling?
Green wire goes to bare ground.
Fan should have hot and neutral.

Hot line should be black.
Neutral should be white.

Red usually goes to light
Blue is normally not there.

Where is the white neutral wire?

Take multimeter set to read ohms and test black wire to each other wire.
Process of elimination should reveal correct wiring.

I forgot to write down the color connections. my options are L 1 2 3 my wire colors are, blacr, purple, yellow, blue. which goes where?


One line on the fan goes to the house common and should be white. this one is separate from the new switch. The other 3 lines on the fan are the 3 speeds. "L" is for the hot line coming into the fan and should be BLACK or RED. It should also be in the same box connector as the white above.
1,2 and 3 are the 3 fan speeds and tie to the 3 leads on the fan.
Try 1=purple 2= blue 3=yellow
You may need to move them after testing but darkest to lightest is usually the 1,2,3 order. Please let me know how much this has helped. Thank you!

I have a Hampton Bay ceiling fan. I bought Westinghouse 77021 to replace the fan switch. I have black, white, yellow and blue wires inside the fan's case. Where should I connect these wires? Jane


Hello. Yhe most common combination for this wire combination is: L - White, 1- Black, 2 - Blue, 3 - Yellow . However this is assuming your 77021 (the fan) has three speeds and the pullchain has four wires. Here's a link to some very good troubleshooting advice: http://www.ceiling-fans-n-more.com/ceiling-fan-pullchain-replacement-and-repair.php
and a link to Diagrams: http://www.hurontel.on.ca/~taitg/pages/cfan.html

I am having trouble installing the wiring with my westinghouse. I don't know how to match up the wires. The Westinghouse has black, white, blue, and green wires, and my house wiring is purple, yellow and...


At the fan green is ground, blue is to turn on the fan, black turns on the light. I believe at your house wiring white is neutral and goes to the white in the fan. The purple and yellow are to switch on the fixtures, you can connect the purple to the blue, and the yellow to the black.

Changing the 3 speed switch on my westinghouse ceiling fan


If you are careful and take the hot coming into the fan from the power source and connect it to the colored wires one at a time, you will be able to find which one is high, med. and low. Then connect them. Hot in is L, 1 is low, 2 is med, 3 is high

Wiring the replacement 3 speed switch (fan motor)


I called King of Fans and the rep that I spoke with gave me the correct wiring for the 3 speed switch:

L White
1 Yellow
2 Blue
3 Black

The problem is that after I wired it this way I am getting the same result (off on 3 settings and a motor hum on 1 setting). So, either the Westinghouse switch that I bought at Home Depot is not compatible or it is the capacitor. The saga continues.
