The black ceiling fan wiring on the inside of the electrical box is known as the “hot” wire. This cable carries power to the ceiling fan (and sometimes the lights). The corresponding cable in the ceiling fan provides power to the fan motor, and is connected through a chain terminator to control the fan speed. If a fan uses a pull chain switch to operate the lights installed on it, this cable also provides power for lights.

This action causes a safety device, such as a circuit breaker to trip, depriving the power device. The corresponding cable in a ceiling fan is green.
