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..

Need to know how to wire this fan. Not using a remote or wall switch

Hello! W/D here.

In your ceiling box, you'll find 3 wires; black, white and bare copper.
In your fan, you'll see 4 wires; black (or red), white blue, and green.
With your breaker tripped, connect the green wire on the fan to the bare wire in the ceiling (this is your ground).
Connect the white fan wire to the white ceiling wire (this is your common).
Connect the blue and black (or red) together, and connect these to the black wire in the ceiling (this is the hot lead, and will supply power to the fan and the light).
Best regards, --W/D--

The wires for hooking this fan up are white,black and blue my guess is white and black are hot and blue is a ground wire. is this right?

White (Neutral) White to White

Blue (Light to Hot) Blue to Black (optional)

Black (Fan to Hot) Black to Black

Green (Ground to Ground) Green to Green

If you do not have a green lead you might see a green screw to attach the ground wire from the house power. The fan has the optional light fixture future connect the blue wire to the black hot wire. If you have the optional light fixture you may want to connect it to a separate switch power.

I need help wiring my fan. I can't get the fan to work, but I do have the light working. From the ceiling I have a white, black, red and ground wire. How should these wires connect to the White, Black,...

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/

I have a two wire (black white) ceiling wiring and the surveyor fan has four - black white blue and green. How can I connect so that the wall unit can control speeds and light turns off and on without...

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.

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!

How to wire a remote control ceiling fan, without using remote.

If you don't want the to use the remote you don't have to, but you don't have enough wires to switch the upper light, the lower light, and the fan. You can, however, switch the upper and lower lights together if that's okay. In order to do that you'd connect the white from the ceiling box to the white (neutral) on the fan, then the green from the ceiling box to any green(ground) wires on the fan, then the black from the ceiling box to the black(motor) from the fan, then the red from the ceiling box to the blue and orange (lights) from the fan. I'm assuming that the black and red in the ceiling box are also in the switch box where the fan/light control switch is going. Those are the ones you'll connect to the controller.
