Electrical Switches Question:
I have an outlet that is controlled by a wall switch. I want to add a ceiling fan in between the switch and the outlet, keeping the outlet controlled by the switch and the ceiling fan always on to be controlled by its pull chains.

What connections do I use in the new junction box I am going to install to achieve this?

Thank You, Patrick C.


Hi Patrick,
Before proceeding with this project the exact wiring must be identified noting the wire colors and the specific purpose of the wire. When electrical wiring is used for switching the white wire is often used as a switched leg of power, and may not be used as a neutral wire.

In order to supply power to the ceiling fan a power source containing the complete set of hot, neutral and ground wires must be identified from the proposed wiring circuit that you have in mind, and the location of the full source of power will need to be identified as well as this will determine if the existing wiring may be used as it is.

Where ever the full power source is found then a new cable should be installed from that point up to the desired location for the ceiling fan and this will require that the ceiling fan will be operated by the pull chains only, as you wish to have.

Ceiling fan control options:

Patrick, keep in mind that you may purchase a remote control module kit which will enable independent control for both the fan motor speed and separate levels of control for the light kit if the lamps are allowed to be dimmed.

Electrical Tips to Help You Wire it Right

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wires!

The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester that I use to easily Detect Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.

The Quickest Way to Check for Faulty Electrical Wiring!

The Plug-In Outlet Tester
This is the first tool I grab to troubleshoot a problem with outlet circuit wiring. This popular tester is also used by most inspectors to test for power and check the polarity of circuit wiring.
It detects probable improper wiring conditions in standard 110-125 VAC outlets Provides 6 probable wiring conditions that are quick and easy to read for ultimate efficiency Lights indicate if wiring is correct and indicator light chart is included Tests standard 3-wire outlets UL Listed Light indicates if wiring is incorrect Very handy and easy to use.

Strip Off Wire Insulation without Nicking and Damaging the Electric Wire!

The Wire Stripper and Wire Cutter
My absolute favorite wire stripping tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and this is the tool I use to safely strip electrical wires.
This handy tool has multiple uses:
The wire gauges are shown on the side of the tool so you know which slot to use for stripping insulation.
The end of the tool can be used to grip and bend wire which is handy for attaching wire onto the screw terminals of switches and outlets..

The wire stripper will work on both solid and stranded wire. This tool is Very Handy and Easy to Use.
