Next, you need to attach the fan's ground wire either to a screw situated in the mounting bracket or to a ground wire located in the ceiling. When attaching the wires, twist the ends together, then fasten by drilling a screw. For protection, wrap the connector and wire with electrical tape. - Affix the fan cover to hide the wires and bracket. Typically, modern ceiling fan covers are screwed on during installation. However, this may vary depending the model, so it is best to go over the instructions on the box of the fan to be sure. - Secure the fan blades onto the base of the fan using a screw. - Set the switch of the ceiling fan to where you would like it.
