Generally speaking, most ceiling fans have a little black switch on the fan itself that you can switch from either clockwise or counterclockwise. It is generally up towards the top on the side, but it all depends upon the fan that you have. There are fans out there that you can change the rotation from the wall, but they are somewhat expensive. These models actually talk to the switch wirelessly. There is a receiver on the fan that gets the signals from the switch at the wall. If you were interested in a model like this you may want to talk to some lighting experts at a electrical lighting center near you. I hope this helps. If you need anymore help, just ask and I will do my best to help you.

Replacing a switch on a ceiling fan


Wall mount. Cut the power to the switch by tripping the breaker at the "fuse box". You will need help to see what breaker controls that lighting circuit.
Get new switch,remove old switch from wall mount and note the color coding of the wires.
There will be screws that attach the power wires to the switch and
wires that go to the fan.Power wires are one black and one white. The other wire is a green ground wire.
Remove the wires,one at a time and connect to the switch,IF there is enough wire length to do so.You will need pliers to yank the wires out.
The stripped,bare wire at the end should go on the new fan switch so when you tighten the wire end,the wire end tightens onto the terminal clockwise.

If the stripped end is broken off,strip another 3/4" of wire and wrap the wire around the terminal,clockwise.

You MAY test the switch B-4 you put it back into the wall.Be careful of the "hot" black wire.

Click the circuit breaker back off and install into the wall box.

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 ..

When you only have two wires in the ceiling , that means that you have only one switch for this fan. The green connects to all green and bare wires and to the mounting bracket .. the white to white .. and the ceiling black connects to the fan black and blue wires .. In this installation the fan and light can be controlled independently with the pull chains
In order to have indipendent control at the wall you would need two switches and another wire going from the switch to the fan/light

If you hook the black ceiling wire to the black and blue ones on the fan and the white to the white and green to the box it mounts to it will turn on and off with the wall switch and you'll have to use the switches on the fan to turn the light/fan on and off separately. Alternately, you could purchase a remote unit and install it according to the directions. Also, make sure you if you are replacing a light fixture with a fan that the box is strong enough to support it. Good luck.

One of those cables in the ceiling is a power cable from the electrical panel . the other is a wire to the wall switch. if you have a meter then you can connect them correctly .. BUT ,, basic connection would be .. the two black house wires together ,, then a white wire to each of the fan wires .. that puts the fan/light on the switch control.
To be totally correct the white power wire should connect to the white fan unit wire.

Hunter Ceiling Fan 25885 remote won't turn off light


Hello,
I have this fan model. The RED is a common wire. Wire it in with all the white wires. Better yet why don't you just bypass the module for the light. You could buy a more up to date Lutron wall switch W/remote control. The Black wire W/White stripe coming from the module is the light control. Cut & cap this with a wire nut. The same wire coming from the fan motor Connect it to your new wall switch. Now heres the tricky part. You have to run a new (Non switched) hot wire to your fan this will connect to the module normally. This is the new power for the fan. The remote that comes with the fan can serve as the On/Off 1,2 & 3 speeds. You now have two remotes. One for the fan the original and one for the light control w/wall switch. The new Lutron model will give you full dimming capability for incondesent bulbs. It is much less noisy when you are dimming the light down.

Fan with remote won't work with wall switch. I


I just recently purchased a hunter ceiling fan w/light and remote. Had it installed and wall switch would not work, only remote. I contacted Hunter company directly about this problem and I was told that they redesigned their fans with remotes so that only the remote works for turning off power to fan. The person who made that made that BRILLIANT change should be fired. So to those of you who own a newer hunter an product with a remote ne your wall switch will not work tat s te reason why.

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.

The Hampton Bay Altura Ceiling fan functions only with remote.


I contacted the manufacturer (kingofffans.com) after my Altura fan would run on high speed only and the remote would not control any thing. They said their was a manufacturing defect with a capacitor that affected many of the Altura fans. We are now on a waiting list for a new capacitor and housing, because they did not have enough replacement parts.
