Help installing a ceiling fan
I have a remote ceiling fan, and I need help understanding which wires go together.
From the ceiling I have: red, white, and black wires
From the receiver I have: red, black, blue, and white wires
From the fan I have: green, white, black, and blue wires

Any help is greatly appreciated.

The manual will tell you what wire goes where

There should be a black and white on one side of the receiver and red, black , and white on the other side. Take the black and white wire from ceiling and attach to black and white that are by themselves on receiver. Take red wire from receiver and attach to black on fan. Take blue from receiver and attach to blue on light. Attach white from receiver to white on fan. Take green from fan and attach with bare or green wire from ceiling. Cap red wire in ceiling since this wont be used. Be aware that both the black and red wires in ceiling are probably controlled by switch so that switch will have to stay on for the light and fan to work
