Hook up ceiling fan light kit

Published: 24.06.2018

Did this article help you? Good to Know If your fan includes a light kit or if the installation site has separate wiring for a light switch, you will have additional wiring.

Already answered Not a question Bad question Other. You need access to the joists — such as from the attic — to install it. Install a Whole-House Fan.

There will be a cover on the connection box that fastens with a small screw. Depending on your light kit, you may need to attach light shades before installing the bulbs. Fan blades are set in a slanting posture so they catch the air as they spin. Some fans come with a support cable that wraps around and fastens to the brace in the ceiling that supports the electrical box. Either type works equally well. As with all 3-way circuits, the common on one switch is connected to the hot source wire from the circuit.

Preparing The Fan Site

Position the canopy against the top of the motor and around the down-rod collar with the larger opening facing up toward the ceiling. Can you use WD40 on a deadbolt lock to lubricate it? One will be white neutral and the other will be black, red or blue hot. All other wiring is the same as above.

How To Replace A Ceiling Fan Light Kit

Burning smell in home? Line up the holes in the ceiling fan blade arms with the holes in the ceiling fan motor. The fan is directly below a joist or support brace that will hold the outlet box and the full weight of the fan. Most fans however, include a universal mount that will support a fan from "normal" horizontal through most common roof pitch angles.

      If your electrical box has wiring for separate fan and light switches but you aren't installing a light with your fan, trim off the bare portions of the wires for the light. On many fans you'll find the prongs also need to be mounted to the motor housing.

      Step 2 Use a circuit tester to verify that the power is off. The white wire is wrapped with black tape to identify it as hot.

      The black cable wire is connected to the top terminal on the switch and spliced to the black and blue wires at the fan at the other end. Fasten the light kit to the fan with the screws provided.
