SOURCE: Replace exhaust fan with fan & light?

Let's say you originally only had one switch (to operate the fan). And at the fan you have only one black, one white, and one ground (bare or green). You can still put in a fan/light combo. but both the light and the fan will always come on together when you flip the switch. To do this you'd connect the black from the switch to the black AND the blue on the fan and connect the white from the switch to both whites on the fan and connect the ground from the switch to either a green or bare wire on the fan or to a green screw on the fan housing somewhere (whatever is available).

I need to connect Orange, Yellow, Purple and Black wires from fan into the correct corresponding numbers on fan switch 1,2,3, L (0033906)


Try this; Orange - 1
Yellow - 2
Purple - 3
Black - L

If this doesn't work, you probably have the wrong switch. Just because a switch looks the same on the outside doesn't mean it's the same on the inside.

So when the one I went to pull out fell apart before making anything I pulled the other one apart. Okay, on the white plastic there are numbers l(1), ll(2), lll(3). Orange wire l(1), nothing in ll(2), blue wire lll(3). Now on the black plastic, the outlet wires go here: black wire L, white outlet is 180degrees (by orange wire) NEUTRAL SPLICER. Now, white wire from motor goes into the other side of the NEUTRAL SPLICER next to the black wire on the black plastic. This is just above the ll(2) on the white plastic. REMEMBER - NOTHING GOES INTO THE ll(2) ON THE WHITE PLASTIC.

Extractor fan with timer termination of 3 wires blue yellow red


You Need A Tester To See Where The Wires Are Coming From
Normally I Would Expect
N=Neutral
L =Live
Yellow Is Normally Earth
NT Is Application Specific Probably Neutral Timer??
You Will Have To Figure That Out With Tester
There Should Have Been Some Installation Instructions Showing
Connections
If In Doubt Call In Electrician.

Wiring diagram for a 3 way ceiling pull switch.


These fans are manufactured by a number of overseas companies and sold exclusively by Home Depot. They do not have a standard color code for the fan switch. What you can do is turn off the power, keep the white neutral connected. Then using the black power wire fro the ceiling, take one of the switch wires and connect to that black, turn the power on and observe the speed .. low mark it 1, medium mark it 2, high mark it 3. Repeat untill you have identified all the speed wires. Then connect these wires to the 1,2,3, terminations of your new switch

Bathroom fan wiring.


There are two wires in the power cord of your bathroom fan. Buy an electrical plug with a built-in switch. The plug has two terminals in it. Just get the two wires of the bathroom fan to the two terminals of the electrical plug. Secure all bare wires along the line with an electical tape. Get this done, and send us your e-mail it this help you.

Wiring/connecting wire from fan to home ceiling


Hi,

this depends on where you live UK/USA et,c or other.
It is best to search the manufacturers site, to find installation codes/colours.
i.e USA use a lot Of Black and white. UK uses Red/Black Green/yellow.
And on houses that are rewired to 17th edition electrics ( UK ) the colours have now changed on mains twin and earth household Wiring. What Used to Be Red ( Live ) Is Now Brown. Black ( Nuetral ) Is now Blue. green/yellow is earth.

*** Important Note:- you should have several reds in a ceiling junction box or light fitting, these are circuit wires. ( Live From Light to next light ) The same as with Black ( Nuetral )
There will usually be 1 switch wire/Cable. this feeds a live from the switch, to the live power up to the light. many homes use a twin core and earth, from the light switch to the fitting. this may be black ( if a black/red ) has been used. *** Do not connect a black Switch wire with the remaining neutrals***
This will blow a fuse or trip a breaker.

Your solution:- connect the black neutral To the Black neutral cables ( more Than 1 at the ceiling Rose/fitting ) if there is a green/yellow or green ( this will be earth ) You may have 2 remaining Colours Possibly red and Blue or other. The Red Should be the switched Live. ( the single cable Red/Black with red tape around It ) This will be the switched Live. The remaining cable would probably be connected to the Bunch of Reds ( Constant Live ) As ceiling fans require a constant and switched live ( if the fan has lighting )

If in any doubt, consult a qualified or competant Electrician. *****And always remove or isolate the mains supply before attempting any installation*****. After the wiring is complete replace the fuse or switch on the breaker, to test your installation.

This information, is supplied by a fully competant electrician.

Thankyou for using fixya.

I have a westinghouse three speed fan. there are 4 wires a black, purple orange and yellow . the new switch has four connectors L 1,2,3 does any one know witch goes where? thanks , i bought the new switch...


ok. hope this helps, use a switch from FANTEC. it'll be called a 3 speed fan switch. CAM #5 No. 21105. this will also say Single Layer 3 or 4 wire application SPLIT continuity function.. THE SPLIT PART IS VITAL. now when wire it. the BLACK wire goes in SLOT 3. ORANGE wire goes in L. PURPLE wire goes in slot 2, ORANGE wire goes in slot 1. IF, and i repeat IF this does not work for you ensure you have a SPLIT CONTINUITY FUNCTION switch. NO MATTER WHAT the BLACK wire WILL go into slot 3. the ORANGE wire WILL go in slot L. switch the orange and purple wires only. ENSURE POWER IS OFF WHEN CONNECTING OR DISCONNECTING WIRES. YOU WILL GET THE SNOT ZAPPED OUTTA YOU IF YOU DON'T. please post if this helps.
