Go to my Switch Terminology Page where I discuss the terms used for the different types of home electrical switches. When wiring a 2-way switch circuit, all we want to do is to control the black wire (hot wire) to turn on and off the load.
All ground wires (bare copper) are all now connected (incoming ground, load ground and switch ground).
Now by understanding the diagram above, go up to the top diagram and by using the concept shown here, just use your mouse pointer on that diagram and follow the flow from black wire (hot wire) to the load and return through the white wire (neutral). So now that you have a basic concept of wiring a 2-way switch, let's look at the following 2-way switch diagrams to see which type of circuit scenario you have.
This wiring diagram explains how the power is starting at the ceiling fan box and wires to two switches. In the Switch box the power source is used to connect to either one fan wall switch, or it can be used to power a second switch for the ceiling fan light fixture.
A 3-wire cable is then taken from the switch box up to the approved ceiling fan junction box.
The additional switch will be helpful to control the ceiling fan separate from the other lights. How can I wire a 3-way switch to a ceiling fan with power to the light and separate switch to fan.
Tim, the power must be separated at the power source before the switches, then one switch will be wired for each separate function. A standard single pole light switch may be used for the ceiling fan however you will need to used the pull chain switches on the ceiling fan to control the levels of light and the speed of the ceiling fan motor unless you choose to have the option of remote control capabilities which is the most convenient way to have full wireless control of all the ceiling fan light and fan speed functions. Be sure that the ceiling fixture electrical box is Rated for the Weight of the Ceiling Fan or have the existing fixture box removed and a well supported Ceiling Fan Rated box installed. An additional circuit for the ceiling fan and the exhaust fan will only be required if the existing circuit for the bathroom light fixture does not have enough capacity to support the additional load of these items. My ceiling fan light chain just started having electrical current coming thru it when I touch it.
It is very possible that the ceiling fan light pull chain switch has become faulty and needs to be replaced. Depends on personal level experience, ability to work with tools and access to the ceiling fan.
Identify the ceiling fan circuit, turn it OFF and Tag it with a Note before working with the wiring.


Electrical parts and materials for ceiling fan wiring projects should be approved for the specific project and compliant with local and national electrical codes.
Installing additional home electrical wiring should be done according to local and national electrical codes with a permit and be inspected. I think your site offers the the clearest and best electrical information for homeowners I have ever seen on the net.You have given me confidence to do my own projects which I never had before. I wish I found this site earlier, it is by far the best electrical related resource I have found on the web.
I've seen too many DIY installations where they connected the green wire to a switch leg, thinking it was supposed to be blue. I've spent a while but finally found the Hunter fan I installed and got the wiring diagram. You do better because if you bring power to a switch and run the switch cable through the fixture you need a four wire cable between the switch with the power and the fixture.
If you want to avoid the four wire cable you could bring power in a switch box, run a three wire cable to the other switch box and run a three wire cable from the switch with the power to the fixture.
I certainly agree with you and that was what I was trying to convey about the Hunter diagram. To post questions, help other DIYers and reduce advertising (like the one on your left), join our DIY community. The only problem I'm seeing is that the current 6 cans send power to hallway and bedroom lights farther into the house. My personal preference is to daisy chain the lights as more than two cables in that small junction box can get tight. One more question: Does the light on the string that receives the incoming power also have to include the wire from the switch? Right now my power comes to Light #1, but light #2 is much closer to the wall that the switch is on. You could run a 3-conductor cable between L1 and L2 then a 3-conduvctor cable to the switch. In the ceiling box, there are 2 white wires and one black (3 wires in total) which run over to the switches in the wall. Ground wires not show for ease of drawing and the right diagram does not have a neutral at the switch location. This simple diagram below will give you a better understanding of what this circuit is accomplishing.


By wiring a 2-way switch, The circuit below shows the basic concept of electricity flow to the load.
This should give you a good basic understanding how the 2-way switch circuit works and will help you in adding or changing a 2-way switch. After you have pulled your switch out from the wall, the wires in the box and connecting to the switch should look like one of the following. I would like to add a separate switch next to this box, bring power into switch and control my ceiling fan. If the ceiling and walls are not finished with wall coverings, such as sheet rock, then the electrical wiring should be installed in conduit to provide protection for the electrical wires.
Most dimmer switches may be wired as a three way or single switch where one of the wires is capped of and unused. The amount of power required for a ceiling fan and a standard exhaust fan is not very great.
Can I "spider" the lights with the 3-wire cable instead of daisy chaining them like in the diagram? Can I start in the middle and send terminating wires to each light instead of daisy chaining? First of all we need to go over a little terminology so you know exactly what is being discussed. The Green screw on the 2-way switch is for the ground so all ground wires should be connected as seen below. With this configuration a 3-wire cable leads from the ceiling fan box down to the wall switch box. A replacement pull chain switch for the ceiling fan light should be available at most hardware stores where they sell a wide variety of ceiling fans and components.
I understood the op to be saying there was only a two wire connection for power, which would make sense with a remote fan and the blue connected to the receiver wires so that there would be remote control of both the light and the fan.
The electricity flows from the hot wire (black) through the 2-way switch (shown in off position) and then to the light and returns through the neutral wire (white).
So by adding a switch I can keep the switch on and control the fan with a pull chain switch string.
