When you only have two wires in the ceiling , that means that you have only one switch for this fan. The green connects to all green and bare wires and to the mounting bracket .. the white to white .. and the ceiling black connects to the fan black and blue wires .. In this installation the fan and light can be controlled independently with the pull chains
In order to have indipendent control at the wall you would need two switches and another wire going from the switch to the fan/light

If you hook the black ceiling wire to the black and blue ones on the fan and the white to the white and green to the box it mounts to it will turn on and off with the wall switch and you'll have to use the switches on the fan to turn the light/fan on and off separately. Alternately, you could purchase a remote unit and install it according to the directions. Also, make sure you if you are replacing a light fixture with a fan that the box is strong enough to support it. Good luck.

I have a harbor breeze ceiling fan on a dimmer


You have 3 options. You can connect the fan blue and the fan black to the red ceiling wire. Then you will need to control the fan and light with the strings. The wall switch will turn off everything. Option 2 is make sure that there is a switch wired to the black ceiling wire. If there is a switch I would check to make sure the switch is working. Option 3 is to purchase a remote control unit for both and leave the wall switch to shutoff the whole unit. Hope this helps.

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.

Need to know how to wire this fan. Not using a remote or wall switch


Hello! W/D here.

In your ceiling box, you'll find 3 wires; black, white and bare copper.
In your fan, you'll see 4 wires; black (or red), white blue, and green.
With your breaker tripped, connect the green wire on the fan to the bare wire in the ceiling (this is your ground).
Connect the white fan wire to the white ceiling wire (this is your common).
Connect the blue and black (or red) together, and connect these to the black wire in the ceiling (this is the hot lead, and will supply power to the fan and the light).
Best regards, --W/D--

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.

Wiring a ceiling fan w/light


To add to red54's comments:

This is what I believe you have:

- one source in the ceiling box (black & white)

- one donwline circuit in ceiling box going to another wall/ceiling box (black&white)

- on switch wire in ceiling box coming from your wall switch (black & white) -- this is the white wire which will be hot when the switch is truned on

Here's how it should be connected:

- all 3 blacks in ceiling box connected together -- no other wires in this bundle

- white wire (which is hot when switched) coming from switch connects to the black/blackwhite fan wires

- connect all reamining white wires together in bundle

- connect all ground wires together

It's that simple. Trick is figuring out, of the three cables in the ceiling box, which is source, which is downline, which is switch.
Maybe red54's procedure can help you figure that out.

Ceiling fan wiring


blue would be your earth.
black and white are phase and neutral.

for the wiring in your roof you need to call a local sparky. just ask which is which and connect them appropriately.

Wiring ceiling fans to wall switch


Hi Bigelow,

You need two switches.  It sounds like the Electrician set up the junction box for two circuits(Lights and Fans).  i say this because your supply has 4 wires, Red , Black, White and Bare. We may be able to oversome this with one Lutron Switch. Allow me to investigate, and I will be back.
