I assume that you're talking about a remote-controlled ceiling fan.

There are two parts to a remote-control setup -- the transmitter (the switch which you use to operate the fan and/or light), and the receiver (which receives the signals sent by the transmitter, and directly controls the fan and/or light).

The receiver -- which should look like a plastic rectangle, usually white, grey, or orange-brown in color -- can be identified by the fact that it has several colored wires coming out of it, and doesn't have any buttons. This is mounted in the ceiling fan itself. On nearly all setups, it goes inside the canopy (the decorative part of the ceiling fan, up by the ceiling, which hides the fan's electrical wires).

The transmitter may be either hand-held like a television remote control, or in-wall mounted like a light switch. If you have the hand-held variety, there is nothing to install in a wall box. The wall-box wires should be appropriately connected up, and a blank cover plate should be put on top of the gang box.

If, on the other hand, you have the in-wall variety of transmitter, then yes -- it gets mounted in the wall, in a gang box, like a normal light switch or outlet.

If you need any further clarification, please feel free to ask!

The Casablanca 88U33M Scandia Ceiling Fan only has three wires, a black, a white, and a green wire (ground). How do you wire the fan and light on seperate switches?


If you want to control both the light and the fan using 3-ways, then just wire 2 sets of the 3-way circuits. For this you need two sets of 3-wire between the switches, and one 3-wire cable from the switch location to the fan/light box.

At box #1 (a 2 gang box), you will run a power cable (marked cable #1) into it. From there you run 2 sets of 3-wire cables (identified as cable #2 & cable #3) to the other switch location, which will also be a 2-gang box (box #2).

Also from box #1, you will run a 3-wire cable (cable #4) to the fan/light box (box #3).

Hook up is as follows:

Box #3: connect black of cable #4 to black (fan), connect red of cable #4 to blue (light), connect white of cable #4 to white (fan/light), and connect the bare to the green.

Box #2: Connect white of cable #2 to identified terminal on 1st 3-way switch (#3). Connect red & black of cable #2 to the remaining screws of 3-way switch #3. Next connect white of cable #3 to identified terminal of 2nd 3-way switch (#4), and connect black and red to remaining screws. Tie all grounds together and terminate to both switches.

At box #1, connect black from cable #1 to whites in cables #2 & #3, using a wirenut. Connect white in cable #1 to white in cable #4. Connect black and red in cable #2 to 3rd 3-way switch (#1) and connect black and red in cable #3 to 4th 3-way switch (#2). Connect black in cable #4 to identified terminal of 3-way switch #1, and connect red in cable #4 to identified terminal on 3-way switch #2. Tie all grounds together and to the switches

It does not matter whether you turn on the switch or the switch is motion
activated, the light does not know who turns it on.

The switch must be designed for florescent.

What do you mean by proper base, you have a single gang wall box,
that's a box inside the wall, with the electric and a switch,
The gang could be single or hold 5 switches, which ever is installed.

Most all switches fill fit into any gang box.

I tried to install a fan light control switch for


The reason the fan and light are running together is because the are both running on one power wire. The three wires you have in the wall are probably white black and bare copper. You need to run a four wire cable which has a white red black and bare copper in order for you to separate the light and fan and for the circuit to run properly. A DIY electrical book from lowes or the home depot would help you alot with your situation.

Installing ceiling fan with two switches AND a remote


in your ceiling box should be three wires. a red goes to the three way switches, a black goes to the hot and the white is the neutral. the fan wires are black, blue and white. since you have a remote, connect the [fan] blue & black together with the [line] black. connect all white wires together. the remote will now ramp up your lights from off to full on and the fan remote will let you choose lo med high and off. just tape up the red wire in the box.
