Question about Westinghouse Electric Ceiling Fan 3-way Light Switch By Westinghouse 77052

1 Answer

In replacing a broken pull chain (no 3-way power here: simple pull-on/pull-off) on the 3-bulb light fixture of my fan/light combo ceiling appliance, I lost track of how to re-attach the two black wires fromthe new pull chain switch back into the wiring box. I am in n eed of a diagram showing the details of all wiring going to the 3 light bulb sockets, the ground & the two black wires on the pull chain switch. Thanks in advance - RJB

I assume the switch operates the lights only. Besides the ground (green or bare) and the neutrals (4 white wires all connected together), the only wires of interest should be 4 wires (black) from the fixture and the 2 wires on your switch. Of the 4 black wires, one of them is the hot wire and the other 3 connect to the three bulbs. Connect the hot wire to either one of your switch leads and connect the other 3 wires to the other switch lead.
If you don't know which of the 4 black wires is hot you can find it by the process of elimination as follows---- connect any three of the black wires together (then supply power), if nothing lights, then the 4th wire is hot. Otherwise 2 bulbs should light. Remove one wire from this trio. If nothing lights, the wire you just removed is the hot wire. Otherwise, one bulb should light and one of these two remaining wires is the hot wire. Take one of those last two wires and connect it to one of the other bulbs. If it lights, then the wire you just moved is hot. Otherwise the one you left behind is hot. I hope this is helpful. Good luck. Be safe! Al K

Bad hunter ceiling fan light pull switch


I don't know what you mean, longer stem/chain housing to hold light fixture. You should be replacing a two wire switch only.

My ceiling fan has two pull chains The pull chain for the light broke too short. When it broke the light was off. Now I don't have a ceiling light for my kitchen. How can I replace the pull cord?


You will need to replace the pull cord switch. It is inexpensive. You will need to open up the fixture and reemove the old one. Usually it is held on with a nut. If you are not sure of what switch to buy, take out the old one and bring it to a hardware store. Make sure the power is off. Cut the two line to the old switch and splice in the new switch with wire nuts, also use some electrical tape to insulate the connection. Reinstall the nut and close up the fixture. Good luck.

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!

I have a Lutron Skylark SLV-600p and I want to connect it to control the ceiling fan with light fixture. The chain broke on the ceiling fan and its an old model which the device is inside the light box...


1) It appears this dimmer is not for fan motor.
Dimmer manual says:
"... do not use to control receptacles, fluorescent lighting fixtures, or motor-driven appliances."
http://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/030448c.pdf

2) Call Lutron tech support directly:
1-800-523-9466

3) You can replace the pull chain switch to the fan with a bit of dis-assembly and then purchase of new 3-way fan switch at home center. If you decide to do that, add a comment and we can talk details.

4) In order to get a fan-light control to operate from your switch location, you need the following things:
-Fan has to set on high, so unscrew brass part where chain attaches to fan and see if you can grab end of pull chain, and set fan to high.
-Switch box has to be set up to control the light and fan separately. It sounds like your switch box has that capability with a black wire going to light and red wire to fan.
-You need a Lutron combo control that is specifically for controlling ceiling fan, and light fixture.
Call Lutron for best choice.

Last option: 5) Replace fan with new one from home center.

Add a comment if you order the Lutron combo control and I will help you test the wiring and get it hooked up.

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!

Broken light switch chain


Open the fixture where the switch is and see if the chain is broke or just needs a connector to put the chain back together. If you can't do this,just take switch to a place that would sell them, hopefully
you have a hardware store,I hate home depot. Cut the 2 wires,
install new switch, connect wires, wrap with elec tape.

Hampton Bay ceiling fan with pull chains not working


Whether there is a reset switch on this unit or not would depend on the model. If you no longer have the owners manual you should be able to get it from the hampton web site. Many fans have a thermal fuse inline that probably was blown when the bulb broke. The cheaper models do not and then I would guess you burned out the switch.

Sounds like the remote receiver units (located where the mains connect to the fans) took a surge and have failed.
