Question about Hampton Bay 24002 Ceiling Fan

1 Answer

Wiring problems we have a hampton bay fan w/ light kit. I wired the blue & black from ceiling fan to black house wire and white ceiling fan wire to white house wire and the fan or light will work. However, I put the blue ceiling fan wire to the white wiring and only the fan works, not the light. When I initially wired the fan the lights were dim, but only came on for a brief time and have not been able to get them to come back on since.

    I have a Hampton Bay #504149.

    I lost the instructions.

    I have a black wire and a white wire from the ceiling.

    I know to hook up the white to white and the black to black ... but what do I do w/ the blue fan wire? I assume I need to merge it w/ the black house wire ... am I correct?

The only thing which goes to the house's white wire is the fan's white wire.

Both the black and blue wires from the fan (black for fan motor, blue for light kit) go to the black house wire.

Anything else could result in a fire, a melting of internal parts, or a massive electrical explosion arc. The owner's manual is very clear about how the fan is supposed to be wired, and you voided the warranty by going against it.

You may have blown a fuse or a circuit breaker, or you may have blown something within the fan, or your house may be wired in series (very unlikely) in which case you need a new separate wire run for the light kit.

I hope this helps! If you have any other questions, feel free to ask!

Trying to connect a ceiling fan light kit. I connected the blue wire from the fan kit to the black wire in the light kit and then connected the white wire from the fan kit to the white wire in the light...


Those connections sound OK ,, now you have to go to the canopy and see if all the wires for the fan/light are connected to a house wire. If there are two switches , then the blue fan wire would connect to the red wire .. it may be capped off in the ceiling. If there is only one control switch , then the blue wire from the fan will connect to the same ceiling wire as the black fan wire does.

I bought a Hampton Bay ceiling fan and I have


Hi ,, the usual wiring for the fan / light is that in the ceiling the white wires connect together , the black house wire connects to the black fan wire, the red house wire connects to the other fan wire, usually blue or black with a blue stripe. If this does not resolve the issue, then check the wall switches and see that there is a power wire to each switch and that there is a red wire from the fan on one switch and the black wire from the fan on the other switch ..

New Hampton Bay Ceiling fan - runs only in clockwise direction


By using the "switch" to change direction I assume you mean the small slide switch on the side of the fan housing. What you have done is correct and would not affect this switch. The switch is probably bad and you need to return the fan. Suggestion: if the switch is on the housing of the light kit and the light kit connects to the fan with a plug, you are in luck. Go get another fan, swap the light kits and return the fan. Saves you a lot of work. Good luck!

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.

When I've installed these fans in the past, the blue wire was for power to the light kit. If you don't have a light kit, just tuck it out of the way.
