Question about Hunter Ceiling Fan Control Switch

1 Answer

I was wondering if you could assist me with a problem that I am having with my ceiling fan? The wires at the ceiling box are, 1 orange wire and 1 white wire; the wall outlet has 1 orange wire and 1 red wire. The fan I purchased has 1 black wire, 1 white wire and 1 black/white wire. The dimmer switch that I have has a black wire, blue wire, and a red wire. My problem that I've been having is when I turn on the light it turns on the fan also. I've tried to rewire this over and over again and can't seem to find exactly what I am doing wrong. Could you tell me the best way to wire these together so that I can have this assembly work effectively? Thanks.

Black wire, white wire, and tan wire coming from ceiling. New fan has blue, black, white wire and green wire on the bracket how does it hook up


1. Have on hand either wire connectors or electrical tape

2. Look at the wires coming from your ceiling fan. The black wire from the ceiling fan is the hot wire that runs the motor and turns the fan blades. The white wire is neutral and completes the fan circuit. The blue wire is the hot wire for the ceiling fan light fixture. The ceiling fan motor does not have a ground wire.

3. Find the short green wire or the green ground screw on your ceiling fan hanging bracket. Attach the bare copper wire from your electrical box to the short green wire by twisting and orange wire connector to the two wires. If you only have a green ground screw, wrap the bare copper wire around this screw and tighten the screw against the bracket to secure the wire.

4. Match the end of the white insulated wire from the ceiling fan to the end of the white wire from your electrical box. Twist a wire connector onto the two wires to complete the neutral circuit.

5. Connect the black insulated wire from the ceiling fan to the black insulated wire from the electrical box. If you do not have a separate toggle switch on the wall to operate the ceiling fan and light separately, grab the blue wire and place it with the black wire from the fan motor and the black insulated wire from the electrical box. Twist a wire connector to all three wires. If you have the additional toggle switch, connect the two black wires together with an orange wire connector, and then match the blue wire and the red wire together. Twist another orange wire connector on the red and blue wires

Hunter ceiling fan/light unit install with 3 pole switches. there are 2 white, 2 black and one orange wires coming out of the electrical box. How do i handle the installation?


Not understanding, three pole switch is a wrong switch, wires in the ceiling or wall electric box.
Needed: What switch is existing and what wires are in the switch box and runs or groups in each run coming in as wire groups. Same for ceiling box, colors and wires in each run coming in.
Basically, remove the existing ceiling fixture and connect the ceiling fan replacing the fixture to the same wires the fixture was connected to. White to white, green or bare to green or bare, colored wire to fan's blue and black. Wired like this one switch controls both fan and light, on and off at same time. Use fan pull chain switch for individual fan or light control.

Wiring diagram for harbor breeze celing fan


The colors of the wires in the Harbor Breeze ceiling fan kits tell you what their functions are. The black wire is hot for the fan, the white is a common wire for both the fan and the light kit, green is ground and blue is hot for the light kit. locate the black and blue wires from the ceiling fan and connect them to the black wire inside the electrical junction box by twisting an orange wire connector onto all three wires. Locate the white wire from the ceiling fan and the white wire from the junction box and attach the two wires together with a wire connector. Connect the bare copper wire onto the green wire from the ceiling fan mounting bracket by twisting an orange wire connector onto the two wires. Push all wiring inside the electrical box. good-day !

You should be able to trace the wires from the top of the fan and find where they go. Of course you should have green, black, and white in the fan and yes the blue should be for the light. some fans with dual lights will both be controlled by the blue wire, and some will have a separate, so it is very possible it is the orange. If you can't follow the wire into and through the fan and light kit you may just have to "experiment". You said there are "2" switches that control the fan, and they meet at the fixture box? If there are two switches then you will have two hot wires, usually one black and one red (but it could be two black), but you said your fixture box only has black and white. (unless you have 2 black and didn't mention that, then most likely the other switch is for another light, or wall outlet. You may need to trace this to find out for sure. If you have separate switches for the light and fan, then Great! you can hook the fan to one and the lights to the other. Otherwise you'll have to hook fan and light both to the one switch and control them with pull chains. Hope this helps. If you need further assistance post a reply in the comments, and don't hesitate to leave good thumb rating if you found this helpful. Thanks, and good Luck!

Ceiling Fan


Green is always equiptment ground. It goes to the green wire ,if you have one in the electric outlet box,or mounted to the box itself itf you have not the green in the box.
Green always  to green White to white. Nutural wire. Orange to black if their is no black in the box. Orange =Black
I am also thinking that you blue will is also the positive for the fan. I woudl hook it to your orange also .  .

How to wire a remote control ceiling fan, without using remote.


If you don't want the to use the remote you don't have to, but you don't have enough wires to switch the upper light, the lower light, and the fan. You can, however, switch the upper and lower lights together if that's okay. In order to do that you'd connect the white from the ceiling box to the white (neutral) on the fan, then the green from the ceiling box to any green(ground) wires on the fan, then the black from the ceiling box to the black(motor) from the fan, then the red from the ceiling box to the blue and orange (lights) from the fan. I'm assuming that the black and red in the ceiling box are also in the switch box where the fan/light control switch is going. Those are the ones you'll connect to the controller.
