The Casablanca 88U33M Scandia Ceiling Fan only has three wires, a black, a white, and a green wire (ground). How do you wire the fan and light on seperate switches?


If you want to control both the light and the fan using 3-ways, then just wire 2 sets of the 3-way circuits. For this you need two sets of 3-wire between the switches, and one 3-wire cable from the switch location to the fan/light box.

At box #1 (a 2 gang box), you will run a power cable (marked cable #1) into it. From there you run 2 sets of 3-wire cables (identified as cable #2 & cable #3) to the other switch location, which will also be a 2-gang box (box #2).

Also from box #1, you will run a 3-wire cable (cable #4) to the fan/light box (box #3).

Hook up is as follows:

Box #3: connect black of cable #4 to black (fan), connect red of cable #4 to blue (light), connect white of cable #4 to white (fan/light), and connect the bare to the green.

Box #2: Connect white of cable #2 to identified terminal on 1st 3-way switch (#3). Connect red & black of cable #2 to the remaining screws of 3-way switch #3. Next connect white of cable #3 to identified terminal of 2nd 3-way switch (#4), and connect black and red to remaining screws. Tie all grounds together and terminate to both switches.

At box #1, connect black from cable #1 to whites in cables #2 & #3, using a wirenut. Connect white in cable #1 to white in cable #4. Connect black and red in cable #2 to 3rd 3-way switch (#1) and connect black and red in cable #3 to 4th 3-way switch (#2). Connect black in cable #4 to identified terminal of 3-way switch #1, and connect red in cable #4 to identified terminal on 3-way switch #2. Tie all grounds together and to the switches

I have a used ceiling fan that I want to install. I see only three wires coming out of the top; a black, a white, and a blue. The fixture has the fan and 4 lights attached. Can you tell me how to...


Black is the hot wire, white is the neutral, and blue is the hot wire for the lights. If you only have a black, white and green(ground) coming from the electric box in the ceiling, you will have to wire the blue and black together coming from the fan and connect them both to the black coming from the box. The white will connect to the white coming from the box in the ceiling. You should have a ground wire off of the fan. If not look for a ground screw on the fan down rod. The ground is for safety.

Thanks for the beta, but I may not have been clear in how the wiring is set up. This all behind sheet rock with existing wire from a previous unit. So coming from the switch box there are two sets of wires...


You happened to catch the same guy who answered before.
You can re-post again and I'll step aside if that is your choice.

I see. The power is coming from a junction box into the fan-light combo
You have 2 cables dropping down to the two switches, and each cable has black-white-ground

The grounds are connected together and to the green screws.

Black Hot connects to both black wires that drop to single pole switches
White wires from switches connect to fan-blue and light-black wires
Fan-white and light-white connect to white neutral
Crude drawing shows wiring:

If you still have a question,
You can answer directly to this post.
I will not be back for about 10 hours.
But this wiring is correct from the information you have given
Hot blacks going to switches is code.

The key seems to be that you changed wiring in the ceiling box.

I suggest you make a drawing of the wires before and after. Track the route that the Hot wire takes.

The key question is this: Does Hot wire from breaker box arrive in the ceiling box first? Or does it arrive in wall box first?

I think Hot from breaker arrives in wall box first. And from there Hot wire goes to ceiling box ... and from ceiling box the hot wire goes to other plugs in room. If this is true, you will be one wire short for installing fan control switch.

I always make a drawing of existing wires before starting, so I can put it back the way it was. It sounds like you got a good handle on which wire goes where.

We used to solve the one-wire-short problem by making a simple project bigger. Figure out which direction ceiling joist run. See if you can slide fish line from fan ceiling box over to wall. If that works. Over at the wall, chop small hole in ceiling so you can feed wire up to fish line. Pull wire over to ceiling box. Next, staple other end of wire along ceiling over to location above wall box. Chop another small hole so you can feed wire down to wall box. And then install beautiful crown molding to hide the mess, and paint the room so you need new furniture.

I have a westinghouse ceiling fan model 78622, where do i find a wiring manual for this. I have connected up the fan in place of an old one that was taken down, the wiring seemed straight forward but only...


If you have only a black and white (and bare ground wire) in the ceiling box where the old fan was connected before, you should connect both the blue and black wires from the fan to the Black (common) wire in the ceiling box.

Then connect the white wire from the fan to the white (neutral) wire in the box together. Connect the green and bare wires together (Ground wires) and the fan and light should function with the pull chains as designed.

IF you have a wall switch for the ceiling fan and a separate one for the light, it is simply a matter of making the connections for the light and fan to the proper wires going to the wall switch box. Typically, the ceiling fan's light wire (blue in most cases) is connected to the red wire in the ceiling box, while the fan wire (black in most cases) is connected to the black wire in the ceiling box. Connect the white wires together; and then the green and bare wires together for your ground and you should be set.

Remember to disconnect the power to this circuit by turning off the breaker before doing any wiring work.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Light will not shut off on fixture (replacement of ceiling fan)


One of the two cables in the ceiling box is power and the opther is a switch leg .. what you need to do is connect the two black wires together at the ceiling, connect the white power wire to the white fixture wire ,.,. connect the white switch wire to the black fixture wire .. put some black tape on that white to make it legal .

I have 2 sets of wires in the outlet box, the outlet box is connected to a wall switch. Which wires do I connect to the fan.


Usually the two wires that go to the wall switch are used to break the load, (switch the power (COMMON) OFF and ON to the fan).

The other wires in the ceiling box are the supply wires.

You need to look at the wires and find the pair that are LIVE, the one set that has live power on the BLACK wire. This set of wires are the SUPPLY wires. You can use a voltage detector or a neon bulb tester to determine which wires are LIVE. Once you do that, you should turn off the breaker until you have finished the installation.

Connect with a wire nut, the Ceiling (SUPPLY) box WHITE (neutral) wire to the fan's WHITE wire.

Connect with a wire nut, the BLACK (common) SUPPLY wire in the outlet box, to the WHITE wire going to the switch box,

Now connect the the BLACK wire coming from the switch box to the Fan's black wire.

Be sure to connect the bare copper ground wires together with teh Green (or bare) wire from the fan, with a wire nut.

This completes the wiring of the circuit and the fan should go ON and OFF with the wall switch. Now turn on the breaker and check for proper operation.

You can change the speed of the fan with the pull chain on the fan, if this is a standard ceiling fan.

Hope you find this information Very Helpful and best regards!

Wiring a ceiling fan w/light


To add to red54's comments:

This is what I believe you have:

- one source in the ceiling box (black & white)

- one donwline circuit in ceiling box going to another wall/ceiling box (black&white)

- on switch wire in ceiling box coming from your wall switch (black & white) -- this is the white wire which will be hot when the switch is truned on

Here's how it should be connected:

- all 3 blacks in ceiling box connected together -- no other wires in this bundle

- white wire (which is hot when switched) coming from switch connects to the black/blackwhite fan wires

- connect all reamining white wires together in bundle

- connect all ground wires together

It's that simple. Trick is figuring out, of the three cables in the ceiling box, which is source, which is downline, which is switch.
Maybe red54's procedure can help you figure that out.

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.

Green and copper are the ground wires and I believe you can connect both these to the green wire from the fan (I only have the copper wire in the actual ceiling box). Black and Red can be treated as both black and both can be connected to the black wire from the fan (this is what I did in all my fans and it worked). White is the neutral wire and can be connected to the white wire from the fan (this is what I did in all my fans and it worked).

My ceiling box has the copper, red, black, and white wires. The ceiling plate for the fan I bought had a green wire. I connected the green wire from the ceiling plate and the copper wire from the ceiling box to the green wire from the fan.
