Ceiling fan Capacitor Wiring Connection Diagram

Today i am here to tell you about ceiling fan capacitor wiring or ceiling fan capacitor connection. In this post i will completely guide you about the connection of capacitor or how to connect capacitor to a ceiling fan step by step. But before the instilling of capacitor to fan, first we deuces some related and important things with this topic.

How to Ceiling fan capacitor wiring Connection

The ceiling fan capacitor wiring is become easy if you know about start, run and common connection in fan wires. As you know that ceiling fan have 3 wire which come out from winding. In this wire we connect the electric power supply and capacitor. But the problem is that which one for capacitor and which one for direct power supply.
This is too easy to find out the correct wires and connection by reading the following articles.

How to replace capacitor in ceiling fan with speed controller

Note that the refrigerator compressor terminals start, run and common finding method is same because refrigerator compressor is also have a single phase motor and ceiling fan is also a single or one phase motor.

Now you find out the fan start, run and common by using part 1 tutorial, now lets see how to connect or instill the capacitor.
Ceiling fan Capacitor Wiring Diagram

In the above ceiling fan capacitor wiring diagram, i shown a symbol diagram of fan / motor winding, in which i shown Start, run and common wires. I connect the common wire connection with one connection connector and then i connect the Run wire to the other wire connector as i shown in above diagram with blue color line.
 After that i get connection form 2nd wire connector to the fan capacitor where i connect the Running winding wire (Blue). Then i connect the 2nd wire or connection of fan capacitor (2uf to 3.5uf)  to the Starting winding wire(red color).
In last i connect the incoming power supply which control able and got from the dimmer switch and one way switch.
I hope after the ceiling fan capacitor wiring diagram and post you will easily wire a ceiling fan.

  1. How lay person can find which is start,run,and common wires.itlooks the wires are not standard color coded please help

    1. Does your fan motor have been replaced before?

    2. Set ur dmm in ohm mode and test resistances. The resistance between Start and run coil is highest. This way u can find the common wire.
      Now common-start resistance > common-run resistance.

    3. Dear you can find out the start , run and common wire by using an Ohm meter or a multi meter which have an ohm testing option. However for complete guide click on the below link which help you to understand. In the link post i did not shown a fan and i shown a compressor but the finding of start run and common of ceiling fan and single phase compressor is same.
      kindly visit the below link.

  2. i have an old fan.its rpm is lesser.if i connect two condenser in parallel ... what will be happened?
    does the fan-coil get damaged ? ...or the speed (rpm)of the fan become higher ?

    1. Dear in some case of fan rpm lesser are capacitor weak or the incoming voltage are low. If you voltage is full and fixed regarding fan then use a new capacitor. If the old capacitor is 2 uf then use 2.5 or 3 uf and if the voltage is low then if your volt capacitor is 2 uf then use a new 2 uf capacitor with old cap in parallel.

  4. please help my ceiling fan capacitor is burn it as the following 300VAC 3UF but I don't see the same size of this please can i use this 450vac 4.7uf

    1. Dear if you have use two 6 uf capacitor in series then 6+6 = 3uf or if you fan is design for 220 Volts and incoming volts is 150 then you can use the 4.7uf. However the best option to try a 2 uf capacitor.

  5. Dear Sikandar,
    would you plz tell me that how a fan rotate? like how we run a fan by a single phase supply?

  6. PLEASE TELL ME THAT CEILING FAN HAVE THE SAME WINDING IN ALL OVER THE WORLD AND..... AND TOLD ME THAT IN CEILING FAN OUTER WINDING IS RUNNING OR INNER..
