The hot wire in a volt residential AC circuit usually is coated with black insulation, while the return, or neutral, wire is white. A single-pole, single-throw switch — such as a light switch — works by interrupting the hot wire, so it has two brass terminals for the hot connections and no silver terminals for neutral. Hooking up a switch is the essence of simplicity. You connect the black wires in the electrical box to the switch terminals, and the white wires to each other.

The switch also has a green terminal for the ground wires, which usually are bare. Turn off the power to the circuit before you begin wiring the switch.
Find the breaker in the main panel that controls the circuit and turn it off. Feed the circuit cable through the back of the switch box and pull out about 6 inches of slack. Run another cable of the same gauge to the fixture you want the switch to control. Feed the end of that wire through the back of the box and pull out the same amount of slack. Cut the plastic covering off of the ends of the cables, using a utility knife.

- How to Wire a Switch With White, Black and Ground Wires.
Pull the wires apart. Connect the black wires to the switch terminals. The switch simply interrupts the current so it doesn't matter to which terminal you connect either wire. If the switch has self-clapming holes behind the terminals, insert the end of each wire into a hole. If not, bend each wire clockwise, hook it around a screw and tighten the screw, using a screwdriver. Splice the white wires together by twisting the ends together clockwise, using pliers.
Screw on a wire cap to hold them together and insulate the ends.
Hang your ceiling fan from the mounting bracket. When installing a ceiling fan with the down rod, you can insert the ceiling fan down rod into the bracket, and the bracket will hold the weight of the fan. A flush mount ceiling fan has a small hook on the motor that connects to the bracket and holds the weight of the fan for wiring. Inspect the wires inside your electrical box. The black wire is the hot wire and leads back to the wall switch. The white wire, known as neutral, completes the electrical circuit.
The bare copper wire is the ground wire.

If you have two toggle switches on the wall that operate the ceiling fan motor and light separately, you should have an additional red wire inside the box. Look at the wires coming from your ceiling fan. The black wire from the ceiling fan is the hot wire that runs the motor and turns the fan blades. The white wire is neutral and completes the fan circuit. The blue wire is the hot wire for the ceiling fan light fixture.

The ceiling fan motor does not have a ground wire. Find the short green wire or the green ground screw on your ceiling fan hanging bracket. Attach the bare copper wire from your electrical box to the short green wire by twisting and orange wire connector to the two wires. If you only have a green ground screw, wrap the bare copper wire around this screw and tighten the screw against the bracket to secure the wire.
Match the end of the white insulated wire from the ceiling fan to the end of the white wire from your electrical box. Twist another wire connector onto the two wires to complete the neutral circuit. Connect the black insulated wire from the ceiling fan to the black insulated wire from the electrical box. If you do not have a separate toggle switch on the wall to operate the ceiling fan and light separately, grab the blue wire and place it with the black wire from the fan motor and the black insulated wire from the electrical box.
Twist a yellow wire connector to all three wires.
