Question about Patton Electric U2-20 Box Fan
WHERE does the light green wire connect to?
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.
