Should have screws close to the ceiling on cover, then if it's a ball and socket you lift up and out through the cutout on the socket bracket, or a flushmount you find the screw that attaches to the bracket and lower down. then just take off wire nuts and install new fixture. Hope this helps.

I have two ceiling lights in a room. Want to install ceiling fan in one outlet. How do I wire it so that I can have fan in one place but turn off light in other? Do I have to hot-wire ceiling fan?


You simply use the ceiling fan switch to power the fan. U can hook it up in parallel to the other light fixture. The wall switch can power both units but you can always shut off the fan. To run the fan and kill the light you would need a separate circuit for the light with its own switch. Or hot wire the fan as you indicated.

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..

I am having a problem adding a hunter 28550 light to my existing hunter ceiling fan. The fan works fine but I can not get the light to work.


It's possible whoever installed the fan originally, did not connect the black/white striped wire to the electric box. Drop the ceiling canopy and let me know what you find.

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.

We are installing a lighting fixture on our Casablanca 4944D Concentra. We can get current across the various wires, but can not get the light to turn on. The colors of the wires are blue, black, red,...


On ceiling fans, the blue wire is designated for the accessory light kit. If you are using the Casablanca kit, it should be wired with a matching plug that just, well, plugs into the fan.

If you are adding another brand of light kit, you only need to connect the blue wire (hot/common) to the black wire of the light being attached, and the white (neutral) to the white wire of the light being attached.

Your fan will not have a pull chain/switch for the light attachment, as that is normally supplied pre-wired and installed in the light accessory.

If in doubt about about the wiring, contact Casablanca for a manual showing what light kits are acceptable for adding onto your particular fan model.

Also, please turn off the power before connecting the light kit to the fan.

Hope that helps and best regards!

It slides in above right above the ball, in the mounting bracket where the canopy is. You may have to kind of encourage it to go in there, and you will need to push wiring off to the sides and out of the way to help it have clearance to get in there.
