Hampton Bay Model 73554 Ceiling Fan

What is the blue wire coming from the ceiling fan that is not hooked up to anything. One ground wire is underneath a green screw. Everything else is wired correctly. Everytime we turn the power back on, the break blows and sparks come from the ceiling. What do we do?

Thank you!!!!

Its not hooked up right.
Black is hot , Black to Black always.
green is ground , usually the green grounds to the mounting screws without any connections needed.
the rest are variable
you can have only 1 or 2 extra wires left.
one to fan , one to lights,
either way they go to white (neutral)
Do you have a dual wall switch with lights and fan or are you using the remote?
How many wires and what color are they that comes out of the ceiling box?

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 a wiring diagram of the Hampton Bay fan with light. The fan is black and white and the light has a blue wire. I believe the blue should be tied to the black, am I correct. Thanks

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 !!

Your black wire hooks up to your fan. The blue wire hooks up to your light. And your white wires hook up with the white wires from the fixture, and the bare copper wire hooks up to your green ground wire. Please contact me if you need further help. Good Luck, and I hope this works for you. Jim

Hampton Bay Wiring?

You have two switches right? One for the light and one for the fan? White should be neutral. Green should be ground. Black should be hot from one switch and red should be hot from the other. Hook black to black and blue to red. If you wire blue and black together then one switch will turn on the fan and the light at the same time.

Yes, the blue wire is for the light. Just connect it to the hot wire (black).

Installing ceiling fan with two switches AND a remote

in your ceiling box should be three wires. a red goes to the three way switches, a black goes to the hot and the white is the neutral. the fan wires are black, blue and white. since you have a remote, connect the [fan] blue & black together with the [line] black. connect all white wires together. the remote will now ramp up your lights from off to full on and the fan remote will let you choose lo med high and off. just tape up the red wire in the box.
