How to Install a Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan Remote Control

Save

You can install a Harbor Breeze ceiling fan remote control to operate your ceiling fan from anywhere in the room. A remote control gives you the convenience of adjusting the fan speed, dimming the fan light or simply turning the ceiling fan off, all while never leaving the comfort of your recliner or bed. The remote also gives you the ability to operate the ceiling fan independently from the light without installing additional wiring. Harbor Breeze is a proprietary brand of Lowe's.

Things You'll Need

  • Stepladder
  • Phillips or slotted screwdriver
  • Wire connectors
  • Turn your Harbor Breeze ceiling fan to the highest fan speed. Turn on the lights to the ceiling fan. Turn off the breaker supplying electricity to your Harbor Breeze ceiling fan at the main breaker panel.

  • Stand on a stepladder and remove the four screws located in the top of the canopy. Removing the screws lets you drop the canopy to the ceiling fan motor. This exposes the ceiling fan wiring and the hanging bracket attached to the ceiling electrical box.

  • Untwist the wire connectors holding the white wires from the Harbor Breeze ceiling fan and the ceiling electrical box. Pull the two white wires apart.

  • Remove the remaining wire connector from the ceiling fan to disconnect the black and blue ceiling fan wires from the black electrical box wire. Do not disconnect the ceiling fan's green wire from the bare copper electrical box wire.

  • Identify the three wires from the Harbor Breeze ceiling fan. The black ceiling fan wire powers the fan motor, the blue ceiling fan wire powers the light fixture and the white wire is the common neutral wire for the motor and the light.

  • Look at the Harbor Breeze remote receiver and find the same black, blue and white wires on the ceiling fan side of the receiver. The wires have labels indicating the motor wire, light wire and neutral wire. The other side of the receiver has two wires, a black and white, to connect with the black and white electrical box wires.

  • Match the wires together by color on the ceiling fan and the ceiling fan side of the receiver. Twist a wire connector onto each set of wires to connect them together.

  • Match the black electrical box wire to the black wire marked AC/IN on the receiver. Twist a wire connector onto the black wires. Repeat the connection with the white electrical box wire and the remaining white wire on the Harbor Breeze remote receiver.

  • Push the receiver behind the hanging bracket and into the ceiling. Slide the canopy over the hanging bracket. Attach the canopy to the hanging bracket with the screws you removed earlier.

  • Turn on the breaker supplying electricity to your Harbor Breeze ceiling fan at the main breaker panel.
