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 a capacitor or how to connect a capacitor to a ceiling fan step by step. But before installing a capacitor to the fan, first we deuces some related and important things with this topic.
How to Ceiling fan capacitor wiring Connection
The ceiling fan capacitor wiring has become easy if you know about the start, run, and common connection in fan wires. As you know that ceiling fan has 3 wires which come out from winding. In this wire, we connect the electric power supply and capacitor. But the problem is which one is for the capacitor and which one is for the direct power supply.
This is too easy to find out the correct wires and connection by reading the following articles.
Also, read below:

Note that the refrigerator compressor terminals start, run and common finding method is the same because the refrigerator compressor also has a single phase motor, and the ceiling fan also a single or one-phase motor.
Now you find out the fan start, run, and common by using the part 1 tutorial, now let’s see how to connect or instill the capacitor.
In the above ceiling fan capacitor wiring diagram, I have shown a symbol diagram of the fan/motor winding, in which I have 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 have shown in the above diagram with a blue color line.
After that, I get a connection from the 2nd wire connector to the fan capacitor where I connect the Running winding wire (Blue). Then I connect the 2nd wire or connection of the fan capacitor (2uf to 3.5uf) to the Starting winding wire(red color).
At last, I connect the incoming power supply which was controllable and got it 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.
