In reply to ceiling fan wiring by Teri on November 5th, 2002 10:28 PM [Go to top of thread]

first you need to determine which pair of black and white wires in the ceiling electrical junction box are the hot pair (i.e. have the 110 VAC present on them) THEN

is the fan controlled by a light switch on the wall?? if so,,then the white wire from the hot pair of black and white wires (with 110VAC across them) in ceiling box should be connected to the white of the fan wiring, the black and blue wire from the fan should be connected to the white return wire from the "on" terminal of the wall switch (usually the top screw terminal of the switch) and then the two black wires in the ceiling box should be connected as they already are (this feeds the hot side of the 110 VAC to the bottom screw terminal on the wall switch.

good luck. post back with results. LJ
