How do I connect or wire a Harbor Breeze fan with light to 2 switches?

There is a variety of different models available in relation to Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fans. This is a step by step guide that will explain how to connect a Harbor Breeze fan and light to two switches, however because these instructions are mostly generic, the same steps can apply to many other ceiling fans.

If requiring only one switch for the fan and one for the light:

Neutral: white wire. The light and fan both will have a white wire for neutral – this is common

Red: Positive for light and  fan – one red wire for each one  – Hot

Black: Hot

Bare wire: Ground

Start by testing power at breaker – ensure there is no power –  use a non-contact voltage tester if at all possible. Be aware of possible electrical shock, so non-contact is best

Find all of the green grounding wires, or bare, and connect them together

Look for white wire from ceiling – connect it to the remote receiver module – white wire, inside of the fan

Black wire – connect from ceiling to the remote receiver module inside of the fan – black wire

Blue wire – connect it from the output side of the remote receiver system, inside the fan to the blue wire inside of there

Red wire – connecting from the output side of the fan’s receiver module   –

Finding Harbor Breeze End Caps

Like many parts for Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fans, finding an end cap can be challenging. When looking around on Google there are many websites that you will find. All of them say they have end caps available, but looking closer none of them do. Even looking at Home Depot or Lowe’s, it appears that very few end caps for Harbor Breeze fans seem to be available.

Hey, we’re just providing the information and knowledge here after taking a look around, just like you. Due to the fact that it’s difficult to even find these end caps from first party retailers, that means that most third party websites you find from Googling aren’t going to be able to offer the end caps either. In most situations, you’ll likely have to buy the end caps used rather then buying a brand new ceiling fan. Of course, we encourage you to reach out to the manufacturer directly using the available phone numbers we’ve been able to provide here.

Harbor Breeze End Caps
Finding Harbor Breeze End Caps can be challenging. When looking on the home depot website, as well as Lowe’s, they don’t really seem to have much to offer in this regard. If the major retailers don’t have the parts, it’s not exactly an easy find for other smaller websites that use the major retailers for their supply chain and logistics.

The only place we’ve been able to find or procure end caps from is Ebay. Again, just being honest here. Even if you find some replacement end caps, chances are you may not be able to find the specific one for your model. We recommend the following course of action if looking for Harbor Breeze end caps:

  • Call the manufacturer and ask them what end caps will be compatible with your fan. For this, you’ll need the make and model details of your fan first. If you’re not sure what that is, read our article on figuring out the make and model of fan you have.
  • Ask the manufacturer or any support line you can talk to, for the part numbers of end caps that are compatible with your fan
  • Scour the Internet for those part numbers. Try Googling for the part numbers, or searching for them on Ebay.

 

We haven’t had success on Amazon.com or .ca for these specific end caps. However, should that change in the future, we’ll be sure to update you!

How to Oil a Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan

Is your fan making rubbing or grinding noises? One idea may be to oil your ceiling fan. Usually, this is not required, but there is an easy way to check to see if your fan has an oil reservoir. If it does, your fan may need oiling as regular maintenance. We’ll walk you through checking for the oil reservoir here in this article. This article will show you how to oil a harbor breeze ceiling fan.

The oil reservoir hole is generally located on top of the motor, near the downrod. If your fan does have an oil reservoir, you will see a small hole labelled oil hole. If you’re not able to find it, it likely does not exist – in this case, your fan does not need oiling. Many of the newer fans on the market today actually don’t need oiling – so checking for the oil hole is a good idea for squeaky fans that made rubbing or grinding sounds.

If your Ceiling Fan has a Oil Reservoir Hole

If you are able to find a oil hole, then use a pipe cleaner and insert it into the hole. This will help test the fan’s oil level. If the pipe cleaner comes out with oil on it, then it does not need oil. If the pipe cleaner comes out and has no oil on it, or it’s a super small amount of oil, then it needs to have oil added. The type of oil to be added is non detergent electric motor oil. This works well for fans. You can also take a look at Hunter Oil for Fans. This oil is specially formulated to be used specifically with ceiling fans.

Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan Oil Diagram
This diagram is a good depiction of how the oil level looks in your fan. The main question you need to ask is, does your ceiling fan have an oil hole. If it does, oiling the fan needs to be part of regular maintenance.

If you’re going to find your own ceiling fan oil, take a look first to see what the manual says that came with your fan. It may point out what kind of oil should be used with the fan. If not, then what you want is non detergent motor oil. Don’t use just any oil, as certain oils can light on fire. Electric motors could cause the oil to light. Look for a 10, 15 or 20 weight oil. Avoid using 3 in 1 oil, as this also has detergents in it.

Do not use WD 40 to oil the fan, as this is not a motor oil!

Antique Ceiling Fans & Oil Reservoir Holes

Antique fans are more likely to have oil reservoir holes. This is due to the age and the function of the fan. Newer fans generally don’t require oiling as much as an older vintage or antique fan. Again, the best way to verify is to look for an oil reservoir hole. If there is a reservoir hole, use the pipe cleaner method we mentioned to verify if the fan has sufficient oil. If the oil level is completely empty, you will want to fill it as soon as possible!
