Wiring a Hampton Bay ceiling fan

I have a Hampton Bay fan, the wiring insrtuctions indicate that I should connect green to ground, white to white and the blue (light) and black to black. This is all understandable, however, I also have a red wire in the ceiling box. It may have something to do with the fact that I have two way switches in the room. On one of the switches I have the on/off toggle as well as a variable speed switch. My question is, what does the red wire connect to?

    Hi Rexter,



    From the wall switch to the fan goes a peach and a red wire. I tested the red wire and it's the hot wire, and this wire also has a splice to feed the light switch to the balcony. The peach wire works like a black wire. I replaced an old hampton bay fan with a new hampton bay one, I wired it the same way as the old one (black and blue from the fan to the peach wire, the white to white and the green to ground). The new fan didn't run at all and now the balcony light doesn't go on also. Help me please!!

Hi Rexter,

I would pull the cover off of the Light switch and look at the color of the wire leaving the Variable speed device. I only assume the red wire is from that. I do not like to assume anything. So you must verify that a red wire leaves the Variable speed device. If it does, then i am assuming you dim the lights with this Variable device. The fan has its own built in Variable speed setup. In the case that the red wire belongs to the variable device, wire the Red to Blue(light), and Black to Black Whites to white. Green to Ground. bare wires to ground.

Usually for lighting. Check with a meter or indicator light to see if the wire receives power when the light switch is turned on. Leave disconnected and insulate with generous amounts of tape or with a twist-on connector if the fan doesn't come with lights. Otherwise, connect to the blue light switch. You can do this more safely by switching off the breaker and using an ohmmeter, but only by opening the switch

I need the wiring schematic for a Hampton Bay 52' ceiling fan with lights, has 2 pull switches and a slide switch.


You should have 5 wires to connect. Green is ground and it may also be a bare copper wire, White is neutral, black and the other are hot, they control the fan and the other controls the light. IF you are hooking them into a conduit box that has white black and ground (which is bare) you hook the grounds together and then hook the whites together and then the other two from the fan connect to the black wire in the box.

White is your neutral so white goes to white. Blue on the fan is for the light kit you need to wire that to the wire from your switch so it works the lights. Black is the hot wire that is always hot not switched so tie that to the wire that is not on your switch. Green is ground so green to green. white to white / green to green/ black to black/ red to blue/

Twist the bare conductors together tightly, matching the black and blue ceiling fan wires to the black power wire, and the white ceiling fan wire to the white power wire, don't forget the green ground !!
