ceiling fan


Hello ,
I installed a Hampton Bay Metarie ceiling fan,
my problem is the light works fine the fan will not work,
there are 2 wires coming from the ceiling box white and black,
i connected the blue and black from the kit to the black wire from ceiling,
and the white to white.
can someone please help me out i live in a older home, should i move the black wire from fan and connect it to the ceiling white wire. ?????

just double check your connections under the wire nut....sounds like the black wire(from the fan) may not be making contact under the wire nut.

Connect it to the white and you just made a dead short.
Blue and all the blacks together should work.
Should have them all twisted together then install the wire nut.
