Home run and rec wire together with a jumper to one side of each switch. black wire to corner light goes to other side of switch 1, black wire of fan goes to other side of switch 2

### I understand that the black and blue wire can be connected to the black wire in my ceiling. ok fair enough. However, in my new bedroom, there is 2 switches on the wall that apparently control two black...

A ceiling fan requires a neutral wire (white), a ground wire (green), a hot wire for the fan (black), and on fans with light kits a hot wire for the lights (blue). These examples will assume that a lighting kit is going to be used, but if it is not terminations to the blue wire are not required and the circuit is greatly simplified The ceiling fan and light can also be wired through switches. When a single switch is used to connect to the ceiling fan and light the ceiling fan (black) and light (blue) would both be connected to the switched black wire. In this configuration turning the switch on would power both the light and ceiling fan. In order to turn just one off, the pull strings would have to be used. The problem with this approach, is that when the pull strings have been used to turn the light or ceiling fan off, turning the switch back on will not work until the pull string is pulled again .
The ceiling fan and light can also be wired through two switches. This would generally be two separate switches, one for the fan and one for the light. This would generally be a 3 conductor w/ground coming from the switch box. The ceiling fan (black) wire would connect to the switched black wire from the ceiling fan switch, the light wire (blue) would connect to the switched red wire from the light switch and the neutral (white) and ground (bare) would connect to the their associated wires..

### My remote to the fan and light was knocked out by a lightning strike so i'm sure it fried something. How can I use it with the light switch olny?

On some fans, yes, you can. If the fan has pullchains that control the light and the fan, then you can use it with the switch only. If it does not have pullchains, you need the remote control.

### Trying to connect a ceiling fan light kit. I connected the blue wire from the fan kit to the black wire in the light kit and then connected the white wire from the fan kit to the white wire in the light...

Those connections sound OK ,, now you have to go to the canopy and see if all the wires for the fan/light are connected to a house wire. If there are two switches , then the blue fan wire would connect to the red wire .. it may be capped off in the ceiling. If there is only one control switch , then the blue wire from the fan will connect to the same ceiling wire as the black fan wire does.

### Ceiling fan pull chain switch replacement

OK, this is easy, it just seems hard. First off, take all the white wires from the light fixture's clusters, and hook them to the white feed wire. Now take the black side of the cluster of wires, and attach them to one side of the switch. It does not matter which side. The other side, goes to the feed wire that is black or what ever feeds the light. The switch only acts as a valve for one side of the loop. I could explain why some switches have a black and white, but I will leave that alone, so I do not confuse the issue.
Good luck!

### New Hampton Bay Ceiling fan - runs only in clockwise direction

By using the "switch" to change direction I assume you mean the small slide switch on the side of the fan housing. What you have done is correct and would not affect this switch. The switch is probably bad and you need to return the fan. Suggestion: if the switch is on the housing of the light kit and the light kit connects to the fan with a plug, you are in luck. Go get another fan, swap the light kits and return the fan. Saves you a lot of work. Good luck!

### Ceiling fan lights do not work

You may have shorted out the light kit. Did you remove the other bulbs and put in new ones? They may have all blown when you heard the noise. Try that first, and if it still doesn't work, you may have to buy a new light kit. They are not expensive, and you can buy one without the glass bulb holders or cans, whatever you have. Then you can still use yours after you install the new light kit. Good luck!
