Today we are going to learn how to install a ceiling fan in your home. The next step is to wire our black to the black. Now our instruction says the fan light is controlled by the blue wire. So we are going to twist both of these together and then connect it to the black. So we would leave ourselves about this much wire. So we are going to cut this off, strip them back just a little bit, and then see how you pull of the installation like that. We are going to do the same to this wire just cut it off a little. Try not to cut any of your wires very delicately trim that. Then you just pull it right off. Then we have our black and blue wires this blue is for our light kit which we would be adding in just one moment. So we are going to go ahead and twist these 2 together. Then we are going to hook them up to our black power supply. I'm going to trim this back just a little bit here. Then we would take off our wire nut. We would simply lay this wire up next to our black power supply wire like that. You see how they are both lying next to each other and then we put a wire nut onto both of them holding them together. Screw this wire nut on. Now we are going to go push these kind of back into place a little bit. Just kind of get them out of the way so they will be inside of the cover of the housing.
