Wiring ceiling fan
I want to put a ceiling fan on my covered front porch for those hot summer days on the swing. There are no recepticals to attach it to. Can I take the female end off a 14 gauge outdoor extention cord and wire the fan to it then run it ten feet to the outlet on the porch? I tried it and only the light kit worked and was wondering if I need a larger wire or if it is possible to do this at all. I would run the extention cord across the porch ceiling and down the wall out of harms way of the blades. Thank you for any help.
