I did not make a diagram when replacing the light switch


Red from switch goes to two blacks, blue from switch goes to two blacks and the black wire goes thru top of light and attaches to blue fan light wire. If you want a good fan, look for blade pitch(13 degree or higher)Or CFM's above 5500 on high.

Box in ceiling has black wire and white wire & the ceiling fan has white wire, black wire and red wire.


BEFORE YOU PERFORM ANY CONNECTIONS BE SURE THAT THE CORRECT CIRCUIT BREAKER FOR THE BOX HAS BEEN TURNED OFF! You must check for voltage between the white and black wires at the ceiling box with each of your two wall switches toggled up or down ONE AT A TIME!
The green wire in the ceiling box (or bare copper wire) is your ground wire and should be connected to the green wire of the fan, and also should be mechanically connected to the electrical box by a screw or clip. If your system was wired correctly you should find that it already is connected to the box.
The white wire in the ceiling box is your neutral wire, so any and all white wires from the fan should be connected to it. You may have one for the fan motor and one for the light kit if there are two separate whites from the fan. Again, they may already be connected together in the fan/light assembly.
The black wire in the ceiling box is switched on and off from either of the two switches in the room, which I assume are located near two different doors to the room. These are called "three-way switches". They are not marked "on" and "off" on the toggle like any single-light switches in your home. That is why you must check for power at the ceiling box with the switches in each position one at a time to make sure that the circuit is de-energized.
Now for the connections:
You will need to connect both the red and black wires from the fan to the black wire from the electrical box. The black wire in your ceiling box is your "hot" wire and will provide power to both the fan motor (black wire) and to the light through the red wire--(sometimes this wire is blue, for others who are following this post).
With this arrangement, your fan and light will only operate with one or the other of your three-way switches completing the circuit from your breaker box. You will have to use the pull chains on the fan to control the fan and lights. So you will probably want to leave the light "pulled on" so that you can control the room lighting from either of your three-way switches, and operate your fan speeds from the pull chain. However, if you want your fan only on at night you will have to "pull off" the fan's light switch.
You may find all this switch flipping and chain pulling an inconvenience. If so, hire an electrician to install wiring so that the ceiling box will be "hot" all the time to the fan's black wire and the fan will therefore be operated by the pull chain only, and the light kit will be controlled by either of the three way switches, via the fan's red (or blue) wire.
One other caveat before you begin: you must make sure that the ceiling box is rated for and mounted sturdily so that it will support the weight of the fan and light kit. Many ceiling boxes are designed and mounted to support only a light-weight fixture. You don't want your fan to come crashing down from the ceiling!

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..

House wireing red,white,black. how do i hook up a cealingfan with light kit pull chain on.


For starters, look at the wall switch. Are there two switches? If so, connect the black wire from the ceiling box to the black wire from the fan. Connect the red wire from the ceiling box to the blue wire from the fan. Connect white to white. At the fan, usually the black wire goes to the fan and the blue wire goes the the light.

If there is only one wall switch, you may or may not want to install a double switch so the fan and light can be controlled separately. If there is only one wall switch, most people just connect the wire connected to that switch (usually the black) to both the black and blue from the fan, not using the red at all. In that scenario both the light and the fan are switch at the fan as needed after the wall switch is operated.

Installing the extra red wire is not usual practice, someone actually was planning for future use and convenience.

Replacing a pull switch on an Encon fan. 4 wires. Didn't label wires before I pulled them out. Number on old switch is 1282M and 17292101 with A B C D labels. Can you tell me which wires go where? ...


I have just figured out the wiring to my Encon 5TD42WHC ceiling fan. (This is not to say your fan won't be different.) You can't use just any switch; the switches vary in operation. See the images attached. Good luck, and be careful working with AC voltages.

In that particular model, there is a small thermo fuse connecting the white wire and the yellow wire(there are 2 yellow wires coming from the capacitor). It's hidden in the coil so you can just cut the wick in that area an pull those two wires and you are going to see the fuse(small square shape one).

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!

The light is not working. Pulled the base off and


I would say the extra wires are for a receiver which must be in there somewhere.

To bypass the receiver, look for black, blue & white wires. Black is fan, blue is light fixture -- white is neutral.

The source wires (from the electric panel) would be black and white and bare copper (ground).

From here, you need to tell me what switching configuration you want: one wall switch, two wall switches, one wall switch w/ two pull chains, etc.
