Question about Kitchen Appliances - Others

1 Answer

The brown and blue wires go to the power feed and the black wires go to the light fixture bundle of wires. I presume that the black wires can be joined with the lighting wires in a light unit. 3 halogen lights run off the unit and six white wires in bundles of 3 wiresw for each light. Does it matter which way round they go into the conjoined wires?

How to wire this fan


The wiring on most paddle / ceiling fans id such:

White = Fan and Light neutral or "common"
Black = Fan line voltage or "hot"
Blue = Light line voltage or "hot"
Green = safety ground

If you are replacing an existing light fixture - be sure to replace the ceiling box with one designed for use with a fan - as per electrical code. If the existing box had only 2 wires (or 3 counting the ground) that connected to the old light fixture and it was controlled from a wall switch, the wiring would be fixture white to ceiling white, fixture black and fixture blue to ceiling black (or red) and fixture green to ceiling bare ground or connected to the metal box. This would power both the fan and light whenever the wall switch was on and the pull chains for each were also on. This is also the preferred wiring for replacement of a pull chain type light fixture (no wall switch present).

If there are other wires in the box that previously were not connected to the old light fixture, using a meter or tester - determine if there is constant power between the ceiling white wire and any of the these other wires (test with the wall switch on and off to be sure). If you do have constant power available, you might consider using the wall switch to control only the light, and using the pull chain to operate the fan (or vice-versa). Simply connect the black (for fan) or the blue (for light) to the "constant power on" wire and that part of the fixture will work by pull chain only - regardless of the wall switch position. If the fan can be shut off by the wall switch, it is very important that the wall switch remain a toggle (or on / off switch), do NOT replace with a dimmer type switch.

If you'd prefer to operate the fan and light completely independently of each other - you can purchase a 3rd party fan & light remote control device for between $30 - $50.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thanks!

I have a 3 bulb flourescent light that had two magnetic ballasts and I want to replace it with a T-8. What is baffling me is that from one set of sockets on one side there are 6 wires, 4 blue and 2 red and...


  • 1 Turn off the circuit breaker that's delivering the power to the light fixture.
  • 2 Test the feed wires with a touch-type voltage tester before you touch them. Press the button on the tester and touch the tip of it to each wire to make sure the circuit is dead. If the tester beeps or lights up then the circuit is still live. Try additional breakers until you find the correct one.
  • 3 Strip about 3/4 inch of insulation from the ends of each wire coming from the ballast if they aren't already prepped for wiring. Use the smallest setting on the wire stripper to prevent snapping the wires when you strip them.
  • 4 Take the single red wire from the ballast and insert its tip into one of the two pressure-slots on top of one of the sockets on the same side of the fixture that the red wire is facing.
  • 5 Take a 6-inch length of similar red wire and strip 3/4 inch of insulation at each end, then insert one end into the second slot on the socket that already has the red ballast wire attached and insert the other end into the other socket on that side.
  • 6 Insert the tip of one of the blue wires into the slot on one of the sockets on the other side of the fixture.
  • 7 Insert the tip of the second blue wire into the slot on the other socket on that side of the fixture.
  • 8 Connect the white wire from the feed circuit to the white wire on the ballast and connect the black wire from the feed circuit to the black wire on the ballast. Make sure the wire connectors are on tight and wrap electrical tape around the connections.
  • 9 Put the fixture back together and install the fluorescent tubes as per the manufacturer's instructions. Turn the circuit breaker back on.

    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.

    What is the wiring set up for the pilot to be on when light fixture is on and off when the fixture is off. it is currently wired as a night light and is on all the time


    Hello,
    If the wiring for the night light is internal then you can not change it...
    If the wire is external then all you need to do is move the hot (black) wire that feeds the light from the black feed wire to the black wire that goes to your fixture so that it is now switched....

    I have a black and white wire to hook to. leviton has black, blue and white. green also but thats a ground. what do i do with the blue wire? this is a single switch to a gfci then to outside lighting....


    The blue wire is the switched hot wire coming from the leviton.
    So:
    black hot/source to black leviton -- blue leviton to black for light fixture or black "line" on GFI -- all whites connected together.

    Charlie

    P.S. If the GFI is only powering a light fixture, it is not needed.

    I'm trying to replace the tail lights on my motor home which is built on a for econoline chasis (1988) when I took the old ones off a lot of the wires were pulled out of the assembly or just rusted off. ...


    Reconnecting a 7 wire circuit.....I presume you have located the rear JUNCTION BOX, or HARNESS splice.... At the lights wiring.
    1. YELLOW = LH Turn signal
    2. RED= STOP Lights
    3. WHITE= Ground
    4. BLACK= LH Tail Light/# plate lamp
    5. BLUE [If available] Auxiliary Power Supply
    6. GREEN= RH Turn signal
    7.BROWN=RH Tail Lights
    Depending on style you may find that the LH and RH Tail lamp colours are the same.[ie] Both Brown or both Black.
    Best of luck in your endevours.
