The BOX is a GE splicer - with 6 wires - 2 grey power wires, then the red, blue, black, and white from the fan motor. I have the same problem and cannot find another GE SPLICER 3 SPEED SWITCH for the fan. All switches that I have tried have 4 connections.........so a WIRING DIAGRAM would be GREAT!

Can anyone offer any help? I have tried every electrical store in the area!

Thanks

Cant get the fan to go without the light being on


You have it wired wrong.
Power should leave single switch in a black hot wire and arrive at fan box on ceiling.
Your ceiling box will have at least 1 black Hot wire and 1 white Neutral
The fan will have 3 wires for connection purpose. Black, blue-or-red, and white.
Twist Black + blue-or-red together and connect to Black Hot wire from switch.
Connect fan white to white neutral.

Hello, Typically your common wire will be white, high speed- black, medium speed- yellow, medium low-blue, red- low. The motor could still run for a short time if it was wired wrong but will either trip a breaker or go off on it;s overload when it's gets hot.

Need to know how to wire this fan. Not using a remote or wall switch


Hello! W/D here.

In your ceiling box, you'll find 3 wires; black, white and bare copper.
In your fan, you'll see 4 wires; black (or red), white blue, and green.
With your breaker tripped, connect the green wire on the fan to the bare wire in the ceiling (this is your ground).
Connect the white fan wire to the white ceiling wire (this is your common).
Connect the blue and black (or red) together, and connect these to the black wire in the ceiling (this is the hot lead, and will supply power to the fan and the light).
Best regards, --W/D--

Wiring heater, vent, light with 12/2 and 12/3 from switch to unit. email: lfranklin5@charter.net


I wish we had more information to go on here.

1) You have 2 cables to to the Heat-Vent-Light
One cable is 12-3 and 1 cable is 12-3

2) That's where it's gets fuzzy.
What color wires are on HentVentLight?
Is power at the ceiling box or at the wall box?
What other wires are inside the wall box?
What kind of switch are you installing?

3) With that number of wires, it sounds like power is at ceiling box.
Power would arrive at ceiling box on one cable that has a Hot-black and Neutral-white wire.

4) Start at wall box:
Let's suppose you are installing a wall device that has 3 individual switches, with one switch for each HentVentLight.
The Hot wire from ceiling box would drop down into wall box on a black wire, and this wire connects to brass screw on switch.
Wire going to heater connects to one of the silver screws.
Wire to fan to another silver screw
Wire to light to another silver screw.

5) Work at ceiling box:
Let's suppose your HentVentLight has 4 wires: Black for light, Red for fan, Blue for heater, and White Neutral.
The white neutral connects to Neutral wire as described in #3.
Black, Red and Blue connect to each of the wires that come up from switch.

Under normal circumstances, NO! Black is normally power in to a box and to a switch. The switch controls the power out to the red line and most likely the blue line. White is always circuit neutral (ground). Your power will most likely come in via black and then go to the lights on either red or blue and to the fan on the other wire, either red or blue, the color you did NOT use for the lights. Some place you should also have a bare or green wire that would act as equipment ground, connecting to the metal of the box.

Replacing a ceiling fan pull chain light switch.


that is strange
normally a 3 wire switch could only be able to control 2 things + off. black would be common, red would be one fan speed or set of lights and blue would be the other fan speed or set of lights.
if it is a replacement, couldn't you just hook it up like the switch you are removing?

most likely the black wires are grounds for everything and white would be power. hook it up however you like. white power would hook up to the black wire on the switch and then the blue to one light and red to the other set of lights white wires.
good luck!

Try this, connect green wire to bare wire. Connect both black (power) wires to black wire in the box. Connect the blue wire to the button for the lights, and the red wire with the strip to the button for the fan, and the common for the buttons to the white wire.

Wiring a Hampton Bay ceiling fan


Hi Rexter,

I would pull the cover off of the Light switch and look at the color of the wire leaving the Variable speed device. I only assume the red wire is from that. I do not like to assume anything. So you must verify that a red wire leaves the Variable speed device. If it does, then i am assuming you dim the lights with this Variable device. The fan has its own built in Variable speed setup. In the case that the red wire belongs to the variable device, wire the Red to Blue(light), and Black to Black Whites to white. Green to Ground. bare wires to ground.
