Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan Wiring

Are you having a problem with your Harbor Breeze ceiling fan? The challenge you are having could any of the following:

  • You are installing a Harbor Breeze fan and need help with the wiring and installation
  • You want to repair a fan that is no longer working properly, and you believe there to be a wiring issue
  • You want to uninstall a ceiling fan
  • There was recently a power surge and the fan is no longer working properly (this may or may not be a wiring problem)

If you are going to take the fan apart due to a wiring problem, we recommend to also have a multi meter on hand. A multi meter is useful to determine where there is a break in the circuit. Often times, it will be impossible to

Out of the fan box:

  • You’ll have a hot wire, this is usually black. Hot means that it has a current running through it.
  • There is a neutral wire which may be white
  • A ground wire which could be copper, brown or black
  • A switched-hot which could be red.

The wires running from the box in the ceiling need to be matched up with the two green wires, and ground wires coming from the fan need to be spliced to the bare ground wire.
Blue wires are to support future addition of a light.
You can cop both leads with wire nuts if not using these ends.

Connect the black on the fan to the red from the ceiling,
blue on the fan to the black from the ceiling,
if black black docent work, can try connecting black to red.

Connect the green to green, white to white.

From the ceiling box, the following wire colors represent the following:
hot wire black
neutral wire white
ground wire copper
switched-hot red

On the fan you have a neutral white,
hot lead for the motor,
hot lead for the light that is not there blue and black
