I need to wire three Ceiling fans in a series on my porch from a single light fixturewiring?

Need to wire three ceiling fans in series

Answer:

NO, you do NOT need or want to wire multiple fixtures in series. You ALWAYS wire fixtures in parallel. You most likely mean you want to wire three ceiling fans to be controlled by a single switch. Since you failed to actually ask a question, I will guess you want to know NOW to wire them. The answer is EXACTLY the same as wiring one ceiling fan, with the 'live' wire from the switch extending to each fixture. If that is not enough to help you, I STRONGLY recommend professional help.

Do noot wire them in series. Get a book on basic house wiring so you understand what the term means. Best solution is for you to hire a local qualified professional electrician to do the work. Probably less than a day work for a journeyman.

I don't think that's safe because light fittings are not rated to carry that sort of current.
