Ceiling fan wiring diagrams


Most usually you will have four wires. One raw copper, one white. One blue and one black. The raw copper would mount to the casing (usually to a green screw) this will be what is called an earth ground. It will divert any stray voltage to the outside ground rod. The white wire is called a neutral ground wire. It goes to the white wire in your casing of the fan/light. This wire goes to your breaker box ground terminal. The blame wire will be your positive (hot) wire to your light section. Connect it to the black wire coming from the ceiling box. Do not put your wire nut and or tape on yet. Connect the blue wire to the black wire connection. The black wire that is in the ceiling box is the positive (hot) wire from your wall switch which comes from your breaker box. Occasionally you may find two switches on the wall, one for the light and the other for the fan. In this event you will have two sets of wires in the ceiling box. Use the black one on one of the black fan/light wire and the other black wire in the ceiling box connect it to the blue wire. If there is another white wire, connect it to the other white wire. Do the same with the raw copper wire. NEVER CONNECT A WHITE WIRE TO A BLACK WIRE. OR A RAW COPPER WIRE TO A BLACK WIRE. THIS WOULD CREATE A DIRECT SHORT AND ELECTROCUTION COULD OCCURE. Turn your power back on when you have completed your job and check each switch. If the switches are not in the location you prefer, turn you power back off and either reverse the location of the switches in the wall box or you can reverse the blue and black wires in the ceiling box.

Box in ceiling has black wire and white wire & the ceiling fan has white wire, black wire and red wire.


BEFORE YOU PERFORM ANY CONNECTIONS BE SURE THAT THE CORRECT CIRCUIT BREAKER FOR THE BOX HAS BEEN TURNED OFF! You must check for voltage between the white and black wires at the ceiling box with each of your two wall switches toggled up or down ONE AT A TIME!
The green wire in the ceiling box (or bare copper wire) is your ground wire and should be connected to the green wire of the fan, and also should be mechanically connected to the electrical box by a screw or clip. If your system was wired correctly you should find that it already is connected to the box.
The white wire in the ceiling box is your neutral wire, so any and all white wires from the fan should be connected to it. You may have one for the fan motor and one for the light kit if there are two separate whites from the fan. Again, they may already be connected together in the fan/light assembly.
The black wire in the ceiling box is switched on and off from either of the two switches in the room, which I assume are located near two different doors to the room. These are called "three-way switches". They are not marked "on" and "off" on the toggle like any single-light switches in your home. That is why you must check for power at the ceiling box with the switches in each position one at a time to make sure that the circuit is de-energized.
Now for the connections:
You will need to connect both the red and black wires from the fan to the black wire from the electrical box. The black wire in your ceiling box is your "hot" wire and will provide power to both the fan motor (black wire) and to the light through the red wire--(sometimes this wire is blue, for others who are following this post).
With this arrangement, your fan and light will only operate with one or the other of your three-way switches completing the circuit from your breaker box. You will have to use the pull chains on the fan to control the fan and lights. So you will probably want to leave the light "pulled on" so that you can control the room lighting from either of your three-way switches, and operate your fan speeds from the pull chain. However, if you want your fan only on at night you will have to "pull off" the fan's light switch.
You may find all this switch flipping and chain pulling an inconvenience. If so, hire an electrician to install wiring so that the ceiling box will be "hot" all the time to the fan's black wire and the fan will therefore be operated by the pull chain only, and the light kit will be controlled by either of the three way switches, via the fan's red (or blue) wire.
One other caveat before you begin: you must make sure that the ceiling box is rated for and mounted sturdily so that it will support the weight of the fan and light kit. Many ceiling boxes are designed and mounted to support only a light-weight fixture. You don't want your fan to come crashing down from the ceiling!

Make sure the power is off.
Connect ALL White wires together -- from the ceiling box, the fan and the lights.
Connect the Black wire from the switch to the Black wire in the ceiling box.
Connect the Red wire to the Black wire on the Fan. That should activate on the first pull
Connect the Blue wire to the 4 black wires coming from the lights. That should activate on the second pull.
The third pull should activate both. To change the order, swap the connections to the Red and Blue wires.

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.

Receiver won't fit Model 52-CS


Turn the breaker off first.
You'll have to take the fan down and of course disconnect the wires. I run into this a lot. What I do is take a razor knife and cut carefully into the ceiling on the side of the box, Then connect the wires from the box to the remote module with wire nuts. I always wrap them in a couple turns of eletricians tape.
Then connect the long wires to the other end of the module and push it up through the slot I cut out and lay it flat on the top side of the ceiling.
When you put it back together the part that goes against the ceiling will cover the hole in the sheet rock. Pain in the rear, huh?

Skill, patience, preseverance, and experience. You ned to cut and strip the wires so they "just fit" into the space provided leading to the connectyion screws. no room for stuffing , and no extra wiggle room for and bends or kinks .. You mightb try mounting the wires and then pushing the extra wire back up intio the ceiling junction box, thats what I do.

Ceiling fan and light wiring, 2 switches, 1 romexHunt


If you have only one black and one white in the ceiling to connect the fan / light to , then you have only one switch for this ceiling box. The fan / light will connect the white wires together and then the two colored wires on the fan to the black ceiling wire. In order to use separate switches for the fan and the lighht a 4 wire cable must go from the switches to the light so you have a red and black wire to switch the two separately .

OK, the wires coming from the top of the fan are going to go into the junction box in your ceiling. Out of the ceiling, you should have a white wire, a black wire, and a green or bare copper ground wire. Make sure your power is off at the fan. Your wires coming out of the fan should be white, black, blue, and a green ground wire. Pull the wires through the top of your fan, and connect the white to the white in the ceiling, the black and blue wires from the fan to the black wire in the ceiling, and then connect your ground wires together. Make sure you use wire nuts and twist them firmly onto the ends of the wires. If you happen to have a red wire coming out of the ceiling as well, just put a wire nut on it and stuff it back into the ceiling box. The blue wire is what works your light kit, and the black is for the fan. Hope this helps you!

Make sure the power wires from the ceiling mount are still in the electric box. Then have them come from the side near the screw mounting area. In otherwords, not through the center hole. In the center of the black metal part - there is where you put the reciever. It will fit literally resting on the black metal.
