In the above wiring diagram, two terminals of the dimmer are shown in which one for input and the second for output. We wired a dimmer in series between the electric supply and the ceiling fan. So as shown in the above diagram one wire goes to direct to the ceiling fan and the second wire goes to the dimmer and then to the fan.

Note that a dimmer will connect in series between the supply and fan. If you wire a dimmer and it’s not working then change your dimmer connection.
