SOURCE: I purchased a ceiling fan

That is kinda confusing, but it sounds like the blue wire for the light kit should also be connected together with the red supply wire for the fan motor from the ceiling wires, and not the capped black wire. That is if the two wires to the fan motor are the white and red wires from the ceiling. Normally the white wire is a neutral wire and the black is the field wire and they both are alternating current "hot" wires, and the green wires are grounded to earth ground only.

Let me know if I understood that right about the wires from the ceiling, and let me know if you require any further assistance.




See if this diagram is correct

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/

SOURCE: I have a 30" drum fan that I turned over in my

You have a two-speed as indicated by the red jumper wire and brown wire left out for connection. These two wires connect to the speed switch with the red jumper to low speed and the brown wire to high speed. The black electrical cord wire connects to the L or COM terminal of the speed switch. The diagram below should give you better understanding on how the motor and the speed switch is wired.

The L/COM terminal makes contact with terminal 1 for low speed and terminal 2 for high speed. The OFF (0) is not shown.

I have a harbor breeze ceiling fan on a dimmer


You have 3 options. You can connect the fan blue and the fan black to the red ceiling wire. Then you will need to control the fan and light with the strings. The wall switch will turn off everything. Option 2 is make sure that there is a switch wired to the black ceiling wire. If there is a switch I would check to make sure the switch is working. Option 3 is to purchase a remote control unit for both and leave the wall switch to shutoff the whole unit. Hope this helps.

Need a wiring diagram for 3 speed patton floor fan


A three way switch has 3 terminals, these for floor fans operate by a rotary switch but can be adapted to use any 120V Rotary toggle or rocker type switch. technically your compartment (or room provided will determine which to use). I'd suggest you replace it with one like the one that no longer works. The one good thing about fans the direction they rotate in is already determined, and with a/c current it will work even if you connect it up wrong! If it work's then fine don't over think it

My old ceiling fan capacitor has A B C D on the back , the new capacitor has 1 2 3 4, how do I connect the new one????


I just changed out an old ADCB (172-90-001 / 1-81-M) fan speed switch with a L123 3 speed switch (Westinghouse 77286). My fan was only 2 speed but the 3 speed switch was all the Home Depot had in stock. So I knew I would have OFF occurring twice in the pull sequence. Its an old Hunter fan that came with the house.

A-Unused
B-Went to 1 (Blue Wire)
C-Went to 2 (Red Wire)
D-Went to L (Black Wire)

I originally put B (the Blue Wire) into spot 3, leaving 1 unused. But that made the pull order go OFF-OFF-LOW-HIGH.

So moving the Blue Wire to the 1 slot resulted in OFF-HIGH-LOW-OFF

Hope this helps!

I have a 3 speed fan with a red, blue, black an white wires, how are the supposed to be wired with power. the wires go to a little black box that appears to just be wires with no circuit board


The BOX is a GE splicer - with 6 wires - 2 grey power wires, then the red, blue, black, and white from the fan motor. I have the same problem and cannot find another GE SPLICER 3 SPEED SWITCH for the fan. All switches that I have tried have 4 connections.........so a WIRING DIAGRAM would be GREAT!

Can anyone offer any help? I have tried every electrical store in the area!

Thanks

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!

Wiring a Hampton Bay ceiling fan


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.
