If you home is wired correctly, than the Black should be your Hot, White should be Neutral, and your earth should be either green, or just a plain copper wire.

Hope that helps.

I would say the extra wires are for a receiver which must be in there somewhere.

To bypass the receiver, look for black, blue & white wires. Black is fan, blue is light fixture -- white is neutral.

The source wires (from the electric panel) would be black and white and bare copper (ground).

From here, you need to tell me what switching configuration you want: one wall switch, two wall switches, one wall switch w/ two pull chains, etc.

How to wire a ceiling fan


What you need to do is take the plate off at the switch on the wall. There shoulld be black wires and white wires. Attach a resistant tester to the white wires, and connect a long wire to the other probe of the tester. then touch the long wire to one of the black wires at the ceiling. If you are lucky, you might get the right black one on the first try. If not, touch the other black one, and that should be the white wire. Have the electric off to test this. When you find which is the white, or common, read the instruction manual and see which of the brown or greenyellow is designated white. I think these colored wires are at the bottom where the lights connect. At the top of the fan should be a white, blue, black and green wire. The Black wire from the ceiling will attach to the hot black and blue for the lights of the fan. The black wire which you discover to be actually white from the switch should be connectied to the white wire of the fan at the top. The red wire sometimes is used to connect to the blue wire so that you have a switch at the wall for the light and one for the fan. That is an old way of wiring fans. Joe

Wiring/connecting wire from fan to home ceiling


Hi,

this depends on where you live UK/USA et,c or other.
It is best to search the manufacturers site, to find installation codes/colours.
i.e USA use a lot Of Black and white. UK uses Red/Black Green/yellow.
And on houses that are rewired to 17th edition electrics ( UK ) the colours have now changed on mains twin and earth household Wiring. What Used to Be Red ( Live ) Is Now Brown. Black ( Nuetral ) Is now Blue. green/yellow is earth.

*** Important Note:- you should have several reds in a ceiling junction box or light fitting, these are circuit wires. ( Live From Light to next light ) The same as with Black ( Nuetral )
There will usually be 1 switch wire/Cable. this feeds a live from the switch, to the live power up to the light. many homes use a twin core and earth, from the light switch to the fitting. this may be black ( if a black/red ) has been used. *** Do not connect a black Switch wire with the remaining neutrals***
This will blow a fuse or trip a breaker.

Your solution:- connect the black neutral To the Black neutral cables ( more Than 1 at the ceiling Rose/fitting ) if there is a green/yellow or green ( this will be earth ) You may have 2 remaining Colours Possibly red and Blue or other. The Red Should be the switched Live. ( the single cable Red/Black with red tape around It ) This will be the switched Live. The remaining cable would probably be connected to the Bunch of Reds ( Constant Live ) As ceiling fans require a constant and switched live ( if the fan has lighting )

If in any doubt, consult a qualified or competant Electrician. *****And always remove or isolate the mains supply before attempting any installation*****. After the wiring is complete replace the fuse or switch on the breaker, to test your installation.

This information, is supplied by a fully competant electrician.

Thankyou for using fixya.

Fan light kit will not function


Have you taken a VOM (Volt-Ohm Meter) and checked to see that the "two wires" of which you speak actually have 110-120VAC on them?

I bet they don't and I bet they don't because "up top" (where the connections in from the ceiling box, the BLUE wire (might be brown on some fans) is not hooked up. Unless you have separate switches at the wall, the blue and black wires coming out of the fan must be combined and hooked to the BLACK wire coming out of the ceiling box. White (neutral) goes to white, and green goes to ground.

Good luck, and always OBSERVE practicable safety precautions.

Ceiling fan wiring


blue would be your earth.
black and white are phase and neutral.

for the wiring in your roof you need to call a local sparky. just ask which is which and connect them appropriately.
