Ceiling Fan Pull Chain Switch Checklist
One simple mistake can prevent your new ceiling fan from working, here’s what to check
- Most ceiling fans have pull chain switches that control the light and fan motor separately so make sure the pull chain switches are in the right control position.
- Theses pull chain switches are placed in the circuit position which will prevent any other switch or remote control from operating. Often the pull chain switches will have more than one setting, such is the case with the fan speeds which are commonly high, medium, low and off.

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.
