2.    Tools

No task can be accomplished without a complete set of tools and equipment. Likewise, to install a Hampton ceiling fan , you will need the following materials:

  • ceiling fan kit
  •  ladder
  • screwdriver
  • clamp
  • goggles
  • driller
  •  wire connector
  • circuit tester

3.   Safety

Working with wiring can be both tricky and dangerous. It is hence always advisable to test new wirings with the help of a non-contact voltage tester before you handle them. These non-contact voltage testers can be obtained at a nominal amount from a hardware or home improvement store. Also, ensure the power is shut from the breaker. This is the first and foremost step to deal with any kind of installation that works on electricity, to avoid accidents.

4.   Fixture

Ensure you have conducted proper research and gathered permits (if required) for the installation process. When you begin the installation process, ensure the switches are put off on the main breaker. Make sure you have a hot head that suggests electricity is not currently running through the line.

After putting off the power, take out the fixture already existing in the ceiling. If the fixture is inside a plastic box, you will have to replace it with a steel one. In case the fixture is not sealed tightly, you will need an expandable mounting bracket.

5.   Mounting Bracket

Use spring washers, screws, and flat washers to secure the mounting bracket to the outlet box. Your fan gets its primary support from this mounting bracket. It is crucial for the mounting bracket to be secured efficiently to avoid injuries. Carefully remove the motor screws and lock washers from the motor.

6.   Wiring

The wired for installation will be in standard colors like white, green, blue, and black. The blue wire stands for hot power for the light kit. The green wire is the ground wire. Ground wires can also be bare-colored. The white one is for the fan and light kit. This information on wires is of utmost importance and if your wiring looks like any other shade not mentioned here, you must abort the installation process immediately and contact a professional installer or electrician.

7.   Assembling the Motor

The motor assembly must be aligned to the ceiling’s mounting brackets. Use screws and flat washers to secure the motor assembly to the bracket. Then, take the screws of the mounting brackets out and add a lock in the washers. Use motor housing to cover the motor assembly and tighten it securely in its place with the help of screws.

8.   Blades

Secure all the arms of the blade under the blade and use screws and washers to keep them in place. Do this activity one blade at a time. Ensure the blades are firmly tightened post-installation. Connect the arms of the blade with the motor, motor screws, and lock washers. Then, use screws to fasten the shade filter plate. Fix your light bulb in, as per the prescribed wattage. Follow the installation specifications to install the glass shade.

9.   Remote-Control Receiver

In case you want to install a remote-controllable receiver to follow your commands from the comforts of your couch, only a few additional steps will be required. The remote-control receiver goes inside the fan canopy for starters. The wiring of this receiver is placed inside the fan canopy, while the other receivers are installed into a wall.

10. Identify the Wires

Since the ceiling fan runs on an electric motor that consists of spinning motor coils, energy travels through the fan capacitor to empower the blades and make them run.

In order to install a receiver in your fan, you will need to identify the wires mentioned above, the black wire that powers the fan’s motor, the blue wire that takes care of the light, and the white wire being the neutral one, that handles the motor and the light.

Your new remote control receiver will have to be attached to these very wires for you to make your Hampton fan run on your fingertips.

11. Match the Wires

The receiver will have the same wires with corresponding colors and labels, for light, motor, and neutral ones for you to will be able to connect. The receiver wires will have to be connected to the electric box wires by matching the wires and subsequently twisting a wire connector on each pair of wires. After connecting all the matching wires, place the receiver behind the hanging fan bracket safely.

12. Test

Attach the fan’s canopy back in its place. You will find that the canopy now covers both the electric box as well as the receiver. Fasten the canopy with the help of screws and a screwdriver and carefully descend from the ladder.

Switch on the power breaker and give your newly-installed fan a test run. If your fan runs successfully, proceed to test the remote-control feature but ensure that you have batteries for your remote that are fully functional.


Installing a fan is not the quickest task in the world, with the upcoming technologically forward designs that accompany it, but it isn’t a rocky road either.

It is always advisable to have necessary safety gear and an additional pair of helping hands that can hold the fan up for you or simply hold your spirits.
