Ceiling Fan Installation

While  ceiling fan installation is easy but its may take some time depending on which type of fan you have.

1) Mount bracket installation

  • Mount brackets with nuts or washers in the outlet box
  • To install electrical wires, remove the bracket from under the bracket.

2) Motor house assembly

  • Carefully remove the motor coupling set screws
  • Turn downrod with thread wires for 4-5 turns.
  • Use pliers for tightening the screw.
  • Use the canopy to pull the wires and downrod.
  • The canopy can be attached properly and hung loosely above the motor housing

Wiring your ceiling fan: –

  • Insert the downrod ball from your motor into the slot for the ceiling bracket.
  • Make sure the fan is in good working order. Only rotate if you are sure.
  • Attach a wire connector to a bare lead. To secure the connection, twist clockwise.
  • Push the entire connection towards your outlet box.
  • Distinguish between grounded and ungrounded wires.
  • Connect the grounding wires and the downrod to the hang bracket with wire nuts.
  • Connect the wire nuts from the receiver to the wires connected from the fan marked “To motor”, using a light white wire.
  • The same process is used for black and blue wires.

Connecting wire receiver/supply line

  • Connect black wires with ceiling and a receiver marked “ACIN” with wire nuts.
  • The same can be done with white wires.
  • Connectors must be gently turned and pushed into an outlet container.

Connecting wires with the wall control panel

  • All wires must be removed from the switch.
  • Connect the outlet box’s black wires, and the wall control’s grounding wires.
  • All wire connections should be safely moved to the outlet box. Next, separate the black and grounded wires.
  • Attach a wall-control to the outlet box and screw it into place.
  • Last, attach the cover to your switchplate using screws.

Installation Of Canopy

  • Adjust the canopy holes by sliding into a bracket.
  • Make sure the canopy is secure and doesn’t slip.

Now you have a fan that works
