Electrical Description : Wiring Ceiling Fan with Remote
[ad#block]Electrical Question : We presently have a ceiling fan that is operated by two wall switches, one for fan, the other for light. We have purchased a replacement fan w/light that has a receiver for fan canopy and remote wall switch that has a button for fan, includes 2 speeds, light with dimmer. Do you have a diagram for wiring this fan? As an alternative, do you have a diagram that would wire this fan with the same two switches controlling light and fan? The fan is made by Savoy, model Torino, which comes with light kit, receiver and remote.

|May is National Electrical Safety Month||Electrical Question From Ron About Grounding|
I have a fan with a light that was controlled by a 2 switch outlet. It was able to separate the light and the fan on dimming and fan speed. When I installed the new fan, black to black, white to white and blue to black or white, no functions come on. This led me to unhook the switch and check connections. The switch had previously been replaced with some difficulty from a standard 2 switch with no dimming. Once I did this, the outlets in the room no longer worked, the fan and the light didn’t either. I disconnected the switch completely and got the power to the outlets back. My Switch has a black wire (hot) a Red (Fan Neutral) and yellow (light neutral). I have 1 hot black wire in the switch (house) and a house neutral. I have an outlet black and white and a fan black and white, but can’t get them to work right with the switch. Un-switched, I managed to get the fan and light to work…so it’s not a bad fan (my original thought as to the problem. Any clues as to what I can do next?
