If it is coming from the power cord, it is certainly a safety ground wire and is attached to the round pin of the AC cord.

It can be attached anywhere to the metal frame of the fan.

Its purpose is to drain off any leakage current from the motor or other part carrying line voltage to avoid having dangerous voltage occurring on parts you can touch.
If your house is equipped with Ground Fault Interrupters (GFI), this ground is a little less important since the GFI monitors the current in the high and low sides of the AC line and if there is any difference between incoming and outgoing currents, it will trip to protect against shock.

I needed to replace the pull switch, but in doing so the capacitor was disconnected and I do not know where the wires go. It's a five wire, 2 gray,1 green, 1 red, one brown. It's marked 10mfd/5mfd/250vac....


1 - gray
2 - brown
3 - green
L - should be black
The other gray should be connected by wire nut to the other grey to reversing switch.

Also, you should have two wires, white & black w/ white stripe, at bottom of fan to hook up light if needed.

How do you connect the electric to wire bathroom lights on one switch, and the fan on the other switch, The power comes in through the switch, Both switches are located in the same box


In the box, connect all white wires together, that is the incoming power, the lights and the fan.
Then take the black supply wire and connect it to the bottom terminal of one of the switches and cut and install a jumper from that terminal to the bottom terminal of the other switch.
Next connect a black wire that goes to the light(s) to the top terminal of one of the switches. When this switch is turned on, power should flow from the supply thru the switch to the light.
Finally, connect another black wire that goes to the fan to the top terminal of the other switch. This will turn on the fan.
All ground or green wires connect together and the green terminal on each switch should have a piece of green wire to connect to all the other green ground wires.

The wires for hooking this fan up are white,black and blue my guess is white and black are hot and blue is a ground wire. is this right?


White (Neutral) White to White

Blue (Light to Hot) Blue to Black (optional)

Black (Fan to Hot) Black to Black

Green (Ground to Ground) Green to Green

If you do not have a green lead you might see a green screw to attach the ground wire from the house power. The fan has the optional light fixture future connect the blue wire to the black hot wire. If you have the optional light fixture you may want to connect it to a separate switch power.

I need help wiring my fan. I can't get the fan to work, but I do have the light working. From the ceiling I have a white, black, red and ground wire. How should these wires connect to the White, Black,...


White is your neutral so white goes to white. Blue on the fan is for the light kit you need to wire that to the wire from your switch so it works the lights. Black is the hot wire that is always hot not switched so tie that to the wire that is not on your switch. Green is ground so green to green. white to white / green to green/ black to black/ red to blue/

I have three house wires supplied- white, red, and


make sure power is off before working on the fan wiring ..(trip circuit breaker)

here is what the house wires are
1. black is hot (power) all the time .. its normally connected to the black wire of the fans speed control switch .. that is normally operated by a pull chain ..

2. red is the same power as black except it comes from a wall switch .. this would be connected to the blue wire in the fan (that goes to its light) .. that will allow you to turn the light on an off from the wall switch ..

3. white is neutral .. it connects to both white wires inside the fan .. one goes to the fan the other goes to the light. .. if there is more than one light bulb then there will be more white wires .. hook them all together and to the white house wiring ..

4 then there is safety ground .. usually green or bare copper ... that is connnected to either a green wire inside the fan or bolted to the metal of the fan (often a green bolt is provided) .. the green wire is not required for the fan to run but is required as a safety to make sure no one gets shocked on the fans metal parts ..

after you wire the fan ..then turn on the wall switch .. if the light doesnt light then pull its pull chain until it does .. you can then tie up or remove that chain to prevent anyone from changing that position since you can now control the light from the wall switch you dont need that chain anymore .. the fan should come on slow med and high then off .. each time you pull its chain ..

Your black wire hooks up to your fan. The blue wire hooks up to your light. And your white wires hook up with the white wires from the fixture, and the bare copper wire hooks up to your green ground wire. Please contact me if you need further help. Good Luck, and I hope this works for you. Jim

Light and fan work but does not work with wall switch


This would mean that that constant power to the fan and light is not wired through the switch right, or not wired into the switch at all. Most ceiling fans that have a light kit will have a Black, White, Green, and Red wire that comes from the ceiling and hooks into the fan and light. If it was done correctly, then the Green wire would be ground, the White is your neutral which is hooked to the other White wire, the Black wire is usually power to the light kit which will also hook to another black wire, and the Red is to the fan. Sometimes the Red and Black are reversed. If any of these wires are wired wrong, that could possibly lead to a constant power to the fan and light kit.

How to wire a ceiling fan, it has two black and one green wire.


The two black wires go to the two wires that come out of your ceiling. No polarity issues here. The green cable is a grounding cable. If you don't have a green cable coming out of you ceiling, then find a way to connect it to the metal electrical box. If there is no way to do that, then you can leave the green cable disconnected. Wrap some electrical tape at the end so it doesn't touch anything else. Not the safest practice (to leave things ungrounded), but your fan will work just fine.

Try this, connect green wire to bare wire. Connect both black (power) wires to black wire in the box. Connect the blue wire to the button for the lights, and the red wire with the strip to the button for the fan, and the common for the buttons to the white wire.
