Question about Hampton Bay 24002 Ceiling Fan

1 Answer

I had to replace the light switch on my fan. When doing so, the fixture came down pulling some wires loose. I have a lite blue and white wire both with connectors that connect the light fixture. The light is working. There is a black wire(has power) that is unattached. I can't find where this goes. I connected it to the purple relay wires and the fan works but only on high. Any thoughts?

    That didn't quite fix my problem. Let me clarify a couple of things to see if it helps.
    I tried the options that were applicable to my issue but the directions didn't really apply to my case.
    1. The ceiling fan is already installed.
    2. The wires coming out of the fan down to the light are one light blue one with a connector.it connects to the light fixture.
    3. The other is a white one with a connector that does the same.
    4. The third and last one is black. It has power.

    The light will work period but the three speed fan doesn't work unless the black wire is connected to the
    purple wires. 4 purple(violet) wires connect in the wire nut. 1 goes to the fan switch, 1 goes to the fan direction switch, 1 comes from the fan hosing and I can't remember where the other goes. I place the black wire in the wire nut and the fan works but it only operates on one speed...high! The switch doesn't seem to be able to control the speeds.

    one other thing. I don't know if the fan model makes a difference but, it is about 8-10 years old. It is a hampton bay but, not a recent model.

    I have 2 pics to send but, I cannot attach them. They are too big. do you have an email I can send them to or do you have another solution?

    ....another solution to post the pics that is...

  • davidpape Feb 09, 2010

    The white that appears loose is actually still attached to the direction switch. I have tried connecting to the white system of cables and it popped and sent the light fixture crashing down. As mentioned in our previous discussion, I think the white and blue cables are power and the black in ground.

    I did touch it to the fan body and it arched so I thought it was wrong.

    Dear David Pape,



    See yellow circle mark, like the white cable almost loose.
    My conclusion is the black cable should connect to switch speed adjustment,
    so just connect black cable with white that I mark with Yellow circle.

    Let me know the progress.

I am trying to install a ceiling fan and from the ceiling I have a copper white and black wire. Now from the fan itself there is a black blue and white wire. Not sure where to connect the copper wire.


Good question, proper wiring is a crucial virtue that needs to be one hundred percent accurate.

Three wires showing from the ceiling lamp fixture harness, positive, negative, and ground.

The negative wire is the white wire,
The Hot wire (positive) is the wire of brighter color than known negative,
220V AC (alternating current) home wiring to(" duplex outlet switch, GFI switch, single/dual pole light switch, lamp fixtures,") the Hot wire or lead, is normally Black, the lighter color, or White is neutral or neggative,
Neutral wire (completes circuit) allows current flow to continue through to other parts of house, Alternating current.

The Ground wire is usually wrapped in green color, or unmarked copper.

The copper wire from the ceiling will need to be grounded to the metal bracket on the new light fixture, a gold or silver screw, sometimes tagged with green, is the proper grounding location, Any place on Metal not attached to ceiling bracket, Ground should be attached to metal on fan,

White wire from Fan is neutral, Negative.
Black wire from Fan is Hot Wire, Positive,
If Blue wire from Fan is Not Manufacture spliced, Meaning no Copper is exposed, Wire is not used, Blue wire is NOT ground,
If Fan has a light, Voltage from Hot Black wire will supply both light and fan functions,

Safety First.
flip off breaker switch to the room fan is being installed.

Doubble Check
Black^Black wire connection is secure.

White^White neutral wire connection is secure.

Ground is fastened securely to metal or wrapped under a screw.

Using splice caps is recomended, The plastic shell encloses the wire connection ensuring No stray copper is exposed, limits possibility of cross wiring.

Google the brand of fan being installed, and Check wire color code, and wiring diagram, Info good to have, and checking twice will only guarantee Lamp Fixture Install Well Done.

(Blue wire may be there for installing multiple ceiling fixtures in a loop circuit, so all controlled by same light switch.)


Enjoy Your New Fan,

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!

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 have a fan with two light locations on it ( one above the motor almost at the cieling and the other at the base of the fan/light) I have 5 wires white, black, blue, orange and green. on the fan I have...


You should be able to trace the wires from the top of the fan and find where they go. Of course you should have green, black, and white in the fan and yes the blue should be for the light. some fans with dual lights will both be controlled by the blue wire, and some will have a separate, so it is very possible it is the orange. If you can't follow the wire into and through the fan and light kit you may just have to "experiment". You said there are "2" switches that control the fan, and they meet at the fixture box? If there are two switches then you will have two hot wires, usually one black and one red (but it could be two black), but you said your fixture box only has black and white. (unless you have 2 black and didn't mention that, then most likely the other switch is for another light, or wall outlet. You may need to trace this to find out for sure. If you have separate switches for the light and fan, then Great! you can hook the fan to one and the lights to the other. Otherwise you'll have to hook fan and light both to the one switch and control them with pull chains. Hope this helps. If you need further assistance post a reply in the comments, and don't hesitate to leave good thumb rating if you found this helpful. Thanks, and good Luck!

Chain to light does not work


Most paddle fans that come with a light kit (or provisions to add one via plug / jack later) provide at least 3 wires (most times 4 though) that will need to be connected to the house wiring. Those wires are:

1) Green, or Green with a Yellow stripe - this is the grounding wire and is connected to the grounded metal junction box or other ground wires.
2)White - this is the neutral wire and is connected to both the fan motor and light fixture.
3)Black - this wire connects to the fan motor. This wire along with the white wire completes a circuit for the fan.
4)Blue - this wire connects to the light fixture. This wire along with the white wire complete a circuit for the light fixture.

Ideally, the junction box in the ceiling has a neutral, ground and both an unswitched power source *and* a switched power source. An unswitched source is always on (regardless of any switch's position) while the switched source is controlled by one or more switch(es) near a door(s). Use a meter or tester to determine which wires are switched (probably black or red) and unswitched (probably black but may be red, too). Label them or orient them in such a way that you'll remember which is which. Turn the power off.

Connect the paddle fan's blue wire to the switched wire, the black wire to the unswitched wire(s), the white wire to the other neutral (most likely white wire(s) and finally, the ground wire to the rest of the ground wire(s). Turn power back on.

Wiring in this way allows the light fixture to be controlled by the wall switch(es) and the fan by the pull chain on the fixture. Turn the wall switch on and pull the chain until the light turns on. You can remove the long chain once the switch turns the light on and off so it is not accidentally shut off at the paddle fan later. Change the fan speed from high to low and eventually off with the chain.

If you only have a switched or unswitched power source in the ceiling, you'll have to connect both the black and blue paddle fan wires to whichever type power you have in the ceiling (switched or unswitched). If you're using a switched sourced, that switch will have to be left on in order for the fan or light to work.

If you have wired in any of these methods already, it could be that the switch for the fixture has failed, and should be replaced with a like-type switch.

I hope this helps!

Where does the blue connect at house wiring black or white? when installing a ceiling fan with light fixture.


White is neutral. Black wire is hot. The blue wire that comes from the fan/light fixture is for the fan, the black is for the light. You can connect the blue to the black. The only thing that when you turn the fan the light will come on at the same time, unless you have a different switch

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.

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!

The red and the black are the hot wires. One will be the fan and one is the light. The white is the 'common' for both fan and light.
It sounds like the new fixture has got one hot for both the light and fan, they will both run all the time from one switch. This is the blue wire. Hook it to the red or the black, which ever one comes from the switch you want to control it. Hook the white to the white on the new fixture.
The green is just a ground. hook it to the new fixture green or ground terminal. Cap or the black or the red that you don't use. It won't be need for the new one. The switch that it comes from will not control anything now.
