The tan is probably a worn white, age will turn it that color. Since you don't have separate switches for the light and fan, then the black (hot for fan) and blue (hot for light kit) go twisted together and hooked to the black from the box in ceiling with a wire nut. The white goes to the other white, it's the neutral wire in the schematic, which if you took apart your breaker box, is attached to the grounding clamp. There should be a green wire that will attach to the extension pole right at the ball on a ball and socket mounting or the motor casing on a flush mount. This should be attached to the green or bare wire coming out of ceiling box. Hope this helps.

Black wire, white wire, and tan wire coming from ceiling. New fan has blue, black, white wire and green wire on the bracket how does it hook up

1. Have on hand either wire connectors or electrical tape

2. Look at the wires coming from your ceiling fan. The black wire from the ceiling fan is the hot wire that runs the motor and turns the fan blades. The white wire is neutral and completes the fan circuit. The blue wire is the hot wire for the ceiling fan light fixture. The ceiling fan motor does not have a ground wire.

3. Find the short green wire or the green ground screw on your ceiling fan hanging bracket. Attach the bare copper wire from your electrical box to the short green wire by twisting and orange wire connector to the two wires. If you only have a green ground screw, wrap the bare copper wire around this screw and tighten the screw against the bracket to secure the wire.

4. Match the end of the white insulated wire from the ceiling fan to the end of the white wire from your electrical box. Twist a wire connector onto the two wires to complete the neutral circuit.

5. Connect the black insulated wire from the ceiling fan to the black insulated wire from the electrical box. If you do not have a separate toggle switch on the wall to operate the ceiling fan and light separately, grab the blue wire and place it with the black wire from the fan motor and the black insulated wire from the electrical box. Twist a wire connector to all three wires. If you have the additional toggle switch, connect the two black wires together with an orange wire connector, and then match the blue wire and the red wire together. Twist another orange wire connector on the red and blue wires

Wiring diagram for harbor breeze celing fan

The colors of the wires in the Harbor Breeze ceiling fan kits tell you what their functions are. The black wire is hot for the fan, the white is a common wire for both the fan and the light kit, green is ground and blue is hot for the light kit. locate the black and blue wires from the ceiling fan and connect them to the black wire inside the electrical junction box by twisting an orange wire connector onto all three wires. Locate the white wire from the ceiling fan and the white wire from the junction box and attach the two wires together with a wire connector. Connect the bare copper wire onto the green wire from the ceiling fan mounting bracket by twisting an orange wire connector onto the two wires. Push all wiring inside the electrical box. good-day !

I have a used ceiling fan that I want to install. I see only three wires coming out of the top; a black, a white, and a blue. The fixture has the fan and 4 lights attached. Can you tell me how to...

Black is the hot wire, white is the neutral, and blue is the hot wire for the lights. If you only have a black, white and green(ground) coming from the electric box in the ceiling, you will have to wire the blue and black together coming from the fan and connect them both to the black coming from the box. The white will connect to the white coming from the box in the ceiling. You should have a ground wire off of the fan. If not look for a ground screw on the fan down rod. The ground is for safety.

Ceiling Fan

Green is always equiptment ground. It goes to the green wire ,if you have one in the electric outlet box,or mounted to the box itself itf you have not the green in the box.
Green always  to green White to white. Nutural wire. Orange to black if their is no black in the box. Orange =Black
I am also thinking that you blue will is also the positive for the fan. I woudl hook it to your orange also .  .

The ceiling has Black and white (dirty I expect) ,
black is hot , white is neutral
the green is ground ( the fan will ground through the mounting screws)
so connect the black to black (hot)
as you have only one choice left that is the blue/white to white.

I assume you have a strong bracket and a fan was existing previously in this spot. If not you have to install a new fan support and wiring box.

Ceiling fan

OK, the wires coming from the top of the fan are going to go into the junction box in your ceiling. Out of the ceiling, you should have a white wire, a black wire, and a green or bare copper ground wire. Make sure your power is off at the fan. Your wires coming out of the fan should be white, black, blue, and a green ground wire. Pull the wires through the top of your fan, and connect the white to the white in the ceiling, the black and blue wires from the fan to the black wire in the ceiling, and then connect your ground wires together. Make sure you use wire nuts and twist them firmly onto the ends of the wires. If you happen to have a red wire coming out of the ceiling as well, just put a wire nut on it and stuff it back into the ceiling box. The blue wire is what works your light kit, and the black is for the fan. Hope this helps you!
