The black cable wire is connected to the top terminal on the switch and spliced to the black and blue wires at the fan at the other end. The neutral source and ground are spliced through to the white and ground connections at the fan.
Run the cable through the clamp and tighten it down. Splice the cable wires to the fan wires using a pigtail splice and a wire nut. Connect the ground to the grounding terminal in the connection box and the ground wire from the fan, if there is one.
Here the exhaust fan is controlled by a timer instead of a switch. There should be two hot wires and a ground coming out of the timer casing, splice one of these to the hot source. Spice the second to the black, cable wire running to the fan. Splice the source neutral to the white cable wire and the ground to the ground wires. At the fan splice the wires, matching the colors of each.
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.
This wiring arrangement allows for lowering the lights with a dimmer and controlling the fan with the builtin pull chain. The source is at the ceiling outlet box and 3-wire cable runs from there to the switch box. The neutral from the source is spliced directly to the white wire on the fan kit and the cable, running it through to the switch box.
This diagram shows two switches in the same box with two separate 120 volt sources. Three-wire cable is supplying the source for both switches with the black and red wires going to the bottom switch terminals. The black wire from each light is connected to the top terminal of their respective switch. The white and ground wires are spliced to run to each light fixture.
The black wire is splice to the output on the speed controller and to the black, fan wire at the other end. The red wire is spliced to the output on the dimmer and to the blue, light wire at the other end. The neutral from the source is spliced in the switch box with the white wire, and to the neutral wire on the ceiling fixture at the other end.
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.
This wiring diagram illustrates the connections for dual controls, a speed controller for the fan and a dimmer for the lights. The source is at the controllers and the input of each is spliced to the black source wire with a pigtail. From the controllers, 3-wire cable runs to the ceiling outlet box.
This page contains wiring diagrams for a ground fault circuit interrupter (gfci) with a built in switch. This device can be used to protect a garbage disposal and provide a gfci protected receptacle in a single gang outlet box. The switch can be included in the protected circuit or it can be used to control an unprotected light or other fixture.
Here GFCI’s are wired to a double-pole circuit breaker with the source split to provide 120 volts to two sets of receptacles. The neutral from the source is shared by both sets. Single-location protection is provided by each receptacle.
Here one ground fault circuit interrupter protects multiple duplex receptacles coming after it, known as multiple-location protection. Two-wire cable runs from the gfci to all the following receptacles. The line terminals on the gfci are connected to the circuit source and the load terminals are connected with a pigtail splice to each of the following receptacles. This keeps each duplex connected directly to the gfci.
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.
