Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan Wiring

Depending on the kind of fan you buy, your Hampton Bay ceiling fan may need to be wired differently from that of the classic ceiling fans. One thing to note, however, is you should match your house wiring and wires from the fan for it to work. But before doing so, remember to turn off the power of the outlet box where the fan will be installed.

Standard Ceiling Fan

The standard Hampton Bay ceiling fan without the remote is probably the easiest to set up because of it straightforwardness. The black wire, or the fan-supply wire, and the blue wire, or the light-supply line, are twisted together with the house wiring’s black wire. Do the same for the white wires from the fan and house wiring as well as the green wires from the fan and house wiring.

Remote-Control Ceiling Fan

In contrast to the standard fan, the Hampton Bay ceiling fan with remote is a little bit more complicated since it has a receiver inline. Twist the fan and receiver wires together by their same colors such that the white fan wire connects to the white receiver wire, blue fan wire connects to blue receiver wire, and black fan wire is connected to black receiver wire. Secure the wires with wire nuts and secure those nuts with electrical tape.

Like in the standard ceiling fan, the black and blue wires from the receiver should be twisted together with the black house wire, the white receiver wire with the white house wire, and the green receiver wire with the green conductor house wire.

Hiding The Wires

Isolate and hide the wires after securing them with the wire nuts and taping them with electrical tape. The white and green wires should go together on one side of the outlet box and the other side should contain the black and blue wires and push those wires up. Make sure that those wires will not get pinched then in the mounting bracket, secure the canopy ring and canopy.

After The Installation

Test your installation by turning the fan on. If it does not power on, ensure that the circuit breaker is turned on. Recheck the wirings if the power is present but the fan does not operate. Any wire with a bad connection in the receiver or in the house wiring will prevent the fan from working since a direct current is absent.
