You don't have to hire a handyman to install a ceiling fan. To connect your ceiling fan to existing wires, make sure that you have the right fan hardware and cut off the electricity leading to those wires. Mount your bracket onto the ceiling and hang the fan on the bracket. If you take your time and follow the correct steps, you can connect your ceiling fan wires by yourself! Once the power is off, read the instruction manual that came with the fan so you install everything correctly. After this, strip the ends of the wires so the copper ends are exposed. Now you can twist the ends of the white wires together, the yellow wires together, and the black and blue wires together.
Ceiling Fan Wiring Diagram #1
Power Starting at the Switch Box This wiring diagram shows the power starting at the switch box where a splice is made with the hot line which passes the power to both switches, and up to the ceiling fan and light. The power is provided by a 2-wire cable with a ground wire which makes a total of 3 wires. A 3-wire cable is then taken from the switch box up to the approved ceiling fan junction box. The wires are connected to the leads from the ceiling fan.
