|Fig-1: Ceiling fan wiring diagram|
This is a simple illustrated circuit diagram of ceiling fan. To be noted that the wiring diagram is for AC 220V single phase line with single phase ceiling fan motor. Here a simple SPST switch is used to supply power or not to the fan motor and a Regulator is used to controlling the fan speed. Though it is very simple, but one thing to be noted that Switchand Regulator should be connected with the phase line of main power, not neutral.

Capacitor connection diagram of ceiling fan
Ceiling fan has a “capacitor start motor” in its inside. AC single phase capacitor start motor has two winding; one is starting winding and another is running winding.

Sometimes you may have faced this type of question...
- Why ceiling fan rotating in reverse?
- What makes a ceiling fan run backwards?
