Did you connect both the black and blue wire from the fan to the black wire coming out of the box?

Did you pull the chain?

Is there a remote kit with this fan?

Check the reverse switch on the fan. If it's placed in the middle, the fan won't operate.

Hi, rbe2 ceiling fan doesn't work, sorry to hear this. All the previous post to you were very good.

Here how I do it. Before installing a ceiling fan with or without light kit, I light to assembly to unit first, then take an
a male power cord, with the female cut off. Than following the direction supplied with the kit, I connect the wires to
see if indeed this will work, before I climb up a ladder an install it.

Good luck.
