how do I wire these? I have a 2 button switch one for the light and one for the fan.
I do not know what the ceiling box wires are but the fan wires are as follows.
Blue = Light
White = Neutral
Green = Ground
Black = fan
If the two button switch is existing, this is how it's most likely connected.
Connect the white from the fan to the white in box.
Connect the green from the fan to the bare wire (ground) in the box.
Connect the black from the fan to the red in the box.
Connect the blue from the fan to the yellow in the box.
The yellow or red can be interchanged if the light comes on when the fan should come on.
