Yes, the blue wire is for the light. Just connect it to the hot wire (black).

If you have a remote then you can't use the dimmer switch on the wall. Put in an on/off switch.

Uneven cieling solution please


Use laser level to find level line around room.
Figure out how you are going to change ceiling lights as part of any plan.

1) Put furring strips across room 16" on center.
Use shims or spacers under furring strip at each nailing point to keep level.
Re-install ceiling electrical boxes to match new ceiling height.
Install new sheetrock.

2) Install suspended ceiling grid.
The cross grid is held with wires attached to old ceiling.
Plan for electric lighting by installing can light fixtures or drop in 2'x2' or 2'x4' fluorescent lights.

3) Float smooth, and prime ceiling.
Have artist paint cloud scene on ceiling to disguise unevenness.

I have a dimmer switch installed and it wont work with the celing fan


Your question has two switches and 1 dimmer.
The fan switch works.
The light switch works.
The dimmer does not. What is the dimmer connected to?
Dimmers typically will not control fan speed unless they are rated to do that.
Do you have a 3-way switching where two switches control same light, and you installed the dimmer in place of 3-way switch?

How to wire this fan


The wiring on most paddle / ceiling fans id such:

White = Fan and Light neutral or "common"
Black = Fan line voltage or "hot"
Blue = Light line voltage or "hot"
Green = safety ground

If you are replacing an existing light fixture - be sure to replace the ceiling box with one designed for use with a fan - as per electrical code. If the existing box had only 2 wires (or 3 counting the ground) that connected to the old light fixture and it was controlled from a wall switch, the wiring would be fixture white to ceiling white, fixture black and fixture blue to ceiling black (or red) and fixture green to ceiling bare ground or connected to the metal box. This would power both the fan and light whenever the wall switch was on and the pull chains for each were also on. This is also the preferred wiring for replacement of a pull chain type light fixture (no wall switch present).

If there are other wires in the box that previously were not connected to the old light fixture, using a meter or tester - determine if there is constant power between the ceiling white wire and any of the these other wires (test with the wall switch on and off to be sure). If you do have constant power available, you might consider using the wall switch to control only the light, and using the pull chain to operate the fan (or vice-versa). Simply connect the black (for fan) or the blue (for light) to the "constant power on" wire and that part of the fixture will work by pull chain only - regardless of the wall switch position. If the fan can be shut off by the wall switch, it is very important that the wall switch remain a toggle (or on / off switch), do NOT replace with a dimmer type switch.

If you'd prefer to operate the fan and light completely independently of each other - you can purchase a 3rd party fan & light remote control device for between $30 - $50.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thanks!

Trip the breaker and verify that the fan/light will not operate. If tripping the breaker kills the circuit and flipping the wall switch would not, the switch is probably bypassed. Place the wall switch to "off" with the breaker tripped to the "off" position as well. Gain access to your wiring connections at the fan. Look for a single (black) wire that is not connected. This should be your hot return from the wall switch Make your fan/light connections to this wire. (Are you sure that the ground wire that you connected is a ground? If it is, it should be bare copper with no insulation). Your white (neutral) connection to the three white wires should be fine. If you don't find a single wire in the ceiling box, call on an electrician. Regards --WoobieDog--

Electrical box not working


unfortunately it sounds like the main electic wire is shorted out. Not the one to your fan, but the one that provides the power supply FOR the fan. The only way i know to fix this is to get an electrician. I am certain the wire needs replacing.

Not sure if this is the exact ceiling fan/ light kit we have... but looks similar.


Turned out that it was the dimmer switch that had shorted out.

My hubby figured it out, and replaced it.

Quit working


first turn it off, then rotate the fan, half turn and try to turn if on again. if it start running again you have a faulty motor, and need to replace it. or if the problem continue, try replacing the switch in the wall.
