Ok you only have two switches, so you would use one switch for your bathroom light, and the other for both the fan and the light, the light will come on when you turn the fan on.Connect the incoming black (hot) wire to both switches. Then connect the black wire to the switch you want for your light. Connect the other black to the second switch that goes to your fan and light. Connect the three white wires together (neutral) Connect all ground wires together, and leave a pigtail to connect to the ground terminal on the light switch. If you want separate switches for light in the fan and fan, you will need another conductor and a three gang switch.

Where do wires go for a Hunter ceiling fan light? The wires are one white, one black, one white-black, and two green.


the green is ground. the white is neutral the back is hot so those all connect inside the fixture in the ceiling to the same colors. The other wire is for the light. It would hook to another switched wire if you have one. If you don't then you hook it to the black and the light comes on and turns off when the switch is flipped.

I need help hooking up my bathroom fan and light i have three wires going to the bathroom fan and light white black and ground i want a swith to turn off the bathroom light one to run the light to the fan...


Right now a single switch turns on both light and fan.
You want to put in a double switch to control light and fan separately.

But the problem is there is not a separate wire to each the light and fan.
You need a separate wire to each, but the circuit wasn't wired that way.
Usually when the circuit is wired for separate control, there is a red wire that also goes to ceiling box.

Unless you run another wire to the ceiling box, it won't be possible to control light and fan separately.

Electrician can do this pretty easily if there is attic space above bathroom.

Two function control switch. Broan nu-tone


Oh Boy! ...Oh Boy! Lol...:) Put the Earth/Ground, (usually green and yellow) wire in the on screw side.

Then, get the Fan's black wire, and connect with the Light's white wire,...then put it in the any one of the Screws, (usually a hole where you put a wire through and screw down to hold. Golden ~ like in color).

Then, get the other Fan's white wire, and connect with the Light's black wire, then put in the other Screw hole. :)

And Whala :)

I am attempting to replace an old bathroom exhaust fan with a Broan 680 fan/light. I am having a problem with the wiring. There are 2 wall switches for the light and fan. The existing wiring has red,...


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.

Fan light kit will not function


Have you taken a VOM (Volt-Ohm Meter) and checked to see that the "two wires" of which you speak actually have 110-120VAC on them?

I bet they don't and I bet they don't because "up top" (where the connections in from the ceiling box, the BLUE wire (might be brown on some fans) is not hooked up. Unless you have separate switches at the wall, the blue and black wires coming out of the fan must be combined and hooked to the BLACK wire coming out of the ceiling box. White (neutral) goes to white, and green goes to ground.

Good luck, and always OBSERVE practicable safety precautions.

Hampton Bay Wiring?


You have two switches right? One for the light and one for the fan? White should be neutral. Green should be ground. Black should be hot from one switch and red should be hot from the other. Hook black to black and blue to red. If you wire blue and black together then one switch will turn on the fan and the light at the same time.

Where do you connect the blue wire


Next time don't lose the instructions.....

Black is your answer...

If just simply hooking the blue and black together with the black from the switch/power supply does not work you need to replace the wire going to the fan with a 12/3 wire(white,black,red,ground) along with a switch, what you have now is a 12/2(white,black,ground)


Here is the following way it should be hooked up using 12/3 romex to the fan from wall switch.
White,Black, ground power supply
Make sure 12/3 is fed to the fan location.
From the power you Y off the black to the red with a piece of red wire to the switch.
Then from the switch is red wire.
Then at the fan red connects to blue, black connects to black, white to white, and ground to ground.

your remote modual should have two or three wires coming from the unit on one side to go to the fixture and three on the other to hook it to power , the three should be to connect to the black (power), the white (Neutral) and green (ground), now the unit has power. The two or three coming from the other side should be a white and two other colors or two the same , black, red, or blue, The white connects to the fan white and the other two go to, one the fan and two the light.

Ceinlg fan


If your house has only a black and white wire, than you need to tie the black, balack and white striped wire to the black of the hous. You than have to use the pull chains on the fan when the switch is on, to turn the fan or the fan light on or off. If youre house had a red wire than that would be tied in with the black and white striped wire and you would have two swithes on the wall to control the fan and light instead of having to use the pull chains.
