Electrical Question from Mike about Multi-Speed Fan Wiring
Background: Mike, a Homeowner from Oak Park,Michigan
Question: I have a old 4 bladed steel Fan. It has 5 wires coming from the motor- 1 black,2 white,1 red,1 green.
I need to know how to connect the wires to the positive wire and negative wire of the wall plug cord so I can use this monster to cool off my house. I am using a electrical strip as a on/off switch. And I will use caps to cover the spliced wires. I had to bypass the switches-Hi,Med,Low.and clockwise/counterclockwise directional switches.
Additional Comments: Nice website
Thanks for your electrical question Mike.
I would have to know the exact make and model number of the fan to verify the wiring configuration for this fan.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!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, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard 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.
