Ceiling fan are a great feature in any home, they have circulate cooler in the summer and disperse heat in the winter. But if your current ceiling fan isn’t working properly or just looks old why not replace it, it’s easier than you think. Before starting any electrical work, let the circuit breaker with the electrical box and confirm that the fire is off. With the screw driver remove the blends on the old ceiling fan and set them aside. Now, remove and screws holding the canapé and pull it back to get at the wiring. You may have a separate width for the light and the fan or it maybe control from two different locations by a three ways switch it will be a good idea to make some notes before proceeding. Remove the wire knots and disconnect the wires, unhook while I’m holding up the fan and remove the assembly. Now, unscrew any brackets to use to connect the old fan to the ceiling. The moving way of the typical ceiling fan is around 35 pounds so it needs to be properly supported. If you replacing an old fan don’t assume it which install light the first time and make sure your electrical box is securely numb to the ceiling choice. If a ceiling choice is not easily accessible you need to use a brace box, this connects between two ceiling joints and will support away of most ceiling fans. Slept the brace to the ceiling point and position it between the joints, the legs that on top of the dry wall at each end. Center the brace over the hole and rotate the shaft with an adjustable range until the tip and bend to the joints. Attached that you both assembly to the bracket, centered over the hole with the vaults facing down then check one of the openings in your electrical box and fit the wire from the ceiling to the hole. Push the box up unto the ceiling hole, sliding to the vaults to the holes and the top. Screw knots onto the ends of each vault and tighten. Most ceiling fan keeping the options and now even post to the ceiling. Unfortunately this does a poor job of circulating air, as long as you’re ceiling at less eight feet high use a down ride so that the fan blades will at least 10 inches from the ceiling. Attached the new melting plate to the electrical box, flat side up with the screws provided, a simple the down rubbing canapé according to the manufacturers and instructions. Random wires through the done lot and tighten all the sets screws. Now, carefully raise the entire assembly to the ceiling mounting plate and save the bulb into the socket this will support the fan while you’re making the wiring connections. Connect the copper wire to the green ground wires on the fan base and connect the white neutral wires. For lighted ceiling fans there will be a black wire for the fan motor and a blue one for the light. If you are using single switch, connect them both to the black hot wire of the house, then use the change to control the fan of the light separately. If you have more than one switched connect the black wire to one black live and the blue to the other live wire. Screw wire knots onto the ends of each connection and carefully pushes the wires open to the lights go back. Attach the canapé to the mounting plate and tighten the screws, now attach the fan blades one by one to the assembly, install the glass shades and the correct wattage bulbs for your particular unit. Now turn the power back on and make sure your new ceiling fan is operating properly.
