Ceiling fan addition


Can I add a ceiling fan which is "hardwired" and is only controller via a remote control switch? Seems like it would be a yes, just want to make sure.

Based on the information you provided, yes. If there is a ceiling box controlled by a switch, just make sure the switch is on or the remote won't work.

Nope, no switch. Just ran the wire yesterday from last outlet to the J Box.

I have a similar question/ situation. About a month ago I installed ceiling fan as well, but I had the light switch already on the wall. One morning I turned off the fan via the light switch just like I had done before, and now it won't turn on. So uninstalled the ceiling fan and swapped it out for a new one, and still nothing. All the outlets in the room are currently work, where do I begin on trying to diagnose the problem.

You are going to need to see where you have lost the power.

Well I started with the switch and viola it was the switch that went bad, not the ceiling fan.
