Kitchen Exhaust Fan Wiring


By Dave Rongey - Summary:

Kitchen Exhaust Fan Wiring – The circuit wire for the kitchen exhaust fan may be installed as a length of cable that will stub or loop outside of the center portion of the area of the upper cabinet located above the range.

Electrical Question: KITCHEN EXHAUST FAN WIRING AS IT HAS GOT THREE WIRES OUT OF WINDING RED WIRE , BLACK WIRE, GREEN WIRE.
AS THE SWITCH IS ON THE AIR GOES OUT OF THE KITCHEN AND IN THE OFF MODE THE AIR COMES IN THE KITCHEN AS THE FAN CAN RUN IN TWO WAYS EXPLAIN THE WIRING WITH DIAGRAM ALSO WHICH THE TWO TERMINAL TO BE CONNECTED TO MAIN POWER LINE SO THAT CAN MAKE THE FAN WORK IN TWO WAY .

Additional Comments: OK AS INTERESTING AND EDUCATING TO LAYMAN SO CAN DO WIRING FOR SELF.

    Thanks Dave will try that.

    I have the same question as Shivkiranm has above. I am looking for the diagram and how to connect the fan. Thanks in advance

      Hi Harry,
      Wiring a Kitchen Exhaust Fan
      Could you please provide more information about the specific kitchen exhaust fan that you have?
      Such as:
      The Manufacturer.
      The Model Number.
      The Voltage.
      Also, describe if the exhaust fan has a one or two speed motor, and if there is one or more light bulbs inside the unit.
      This information will be very helpful,
      Dave

        Hello Dave
        Thanks for your quick response.
        Lets see if I can answer all your questions.
        1. Its a Crompton Greaves Exhaust Fan.
        2. Not sure about the model number but it looks Crompton Greaves Clean Air Exhaust Fan Old one.
        3. I am in India. So standard volt 240 volts.
        4. There is no Bulb. No led in the FAN.
        Its a Old model Exhaust Fan which was working fine till yesterday and I had to remove the wiring and remove the fan as had some renovation work going on. Now the work is done and I forgot the connection.
        The Fan works like a two way. It has a low and High Switch. When the fan is in low state it does exhaust the air out, and when on high it blows the air in like a fan.
        The Fan has 3 wires coming out: Red, Green, and Black.
        The Switch has 3 connectors to connect the wires.
        I am not sure where to connect the main wires ( 240 volts + Neutral ) in the switch along with the fan wires.
        I am all confused and to add more to it. There is one copper wire nailed to the outside of the window not sure if it has to do something with the fan wires.
        Please help me out with the connections of the 3 fan wire as it should work the same way as it use to work. Both ways Fan + Exhaust.
        Thanks in advance.

          Thank you for the information about your Exhaust Fan Harry.
          Based on your information and the limited information available about the Crompton Greaves Clean Air fan I would think that if the rotation of the fan is incorrect then the two circuit wire connections could be reversed to correct the rotation. The India home electrical system is 240 volts and the earth ground, so the green wire would be the earth connection.
          I cannot speculate about the copper wire that is outside the window, however since it is a copper wire it would be good to perform electrical testing to help obtain a positive purpose and identification.
          I hope this helps,
          Dave

            Hello Dave.
            Thank you for the information. But i was looking for the diagram on how to connect the fan to the two way switch. so that it can work like two way as mentioned above.
            I am aware that the green wire is earthing, but I am looking for the connection to the switch.
            Thank You

            Hi Harry,
            Wiring Two Switches to Control an Exhaust Fan
            To wire the exhaust fan so it will operate from two separate switch locations please refer to the Three Way Switch Wiring Diagrams. Note: Here in the USA this type of control is identified as Three Way Switches, even though there are only two switches involved.
            The adaptation of three way switch control in a 240 volt circuit would be to wire one wire of the 240 volt circuit through the three way switches, or use a low volt control circuit which would control a 2-pole relay, and run the 240 volt circuit through the relay contacts.
            I hope this helps,
            Dave

    I have a gas range and needed power for the igniters & clock, but it was not recommended to tap into the gcfi counter outlets, so I wired up and bypassed the GFCI in the junction box.
    Now I have counters with GFCI and the range off the GFCI but both are on the same 20 amp breaker. Dose this sound right or do I need to redue before the inspection.
    Thanks R.Long, Fernwood,ID.

    • Dave Rongey says:

      Hi Randal,
      Typically a range igniter outlet may be fed from one of the 20 amp GFCI counter top appliance circuits. You can verify this with your electrical inspector, but this should not be a problem.
      I hope this helps,
      Dave
