To wire a 3-way switch circuit that controls both the fan and the light, use this diagram. As with all 3-way circuits, the common on one switch is connected to the hot source wire from the circuit. The common on the second 3-way switch is connected to the hot wires on the fan/light.
This diagram illustrates the wiring for a circuit with gfci receptacles followed by an unprotected light and switch. The light switch is connected directly to the source and the load terminals on the gfci are not used.
Use this wiring when the power source originates at the switch and you want to control both the fan and light from there. The hot source is connected directly to the bottom terminal on the switch. Two-wire cable runs from there to the ceiling fan.
This gfci wiring provides protection to a duplex receptacle. By connecting the load terminals on the last gfci, the receptacle is protected and can be used just as if it were one of the gfci receptacles. One ground fault circuit interrupter at the beginning of the circuit can be used in the same way to protect multiple, subsequent receptacles as illustrated in the diagram below.
In this arrangement a light fixture and exhaust fan are wired to the same source. The light is controlled with a single-pole switch and the fan controlled with a timer as in the previous drawing. The hot source is spliced to each controlling device and the output of the controllers are connected as in the previous diagrams on this page.
This page contains several diagrams for 2 or more receptacle outlets in one circuit. Wiring for multiple ground fault circuit interrupters (gfci) and standard duplex receptacles are included with protected and non-protected arrangements.
Here the source is at the fan/light and a switch loop runs to the wall switch. The source is wired directly to the fan and spliced through to the switch. With this arrangement the light is controlled with the switch and the fan is hardwired for pull-chain control.
In this diagram, a light switch and receptacle are wired in the same box. Both devices are spliced to the same hot source and the neutral to the neutral on the receptacle, and through to the light fixture located in a separate box.
