I am switching ceiling fans in my bedrooms. I noticed that the wires coming out of the master bedroom have these color wires hanging out....Brown, yellow, and white wires. My ceiling fan has Black, white and green wires hanging out of it. What is the proper hook up for this mess.
I’m guessing you have a metal box in the ceiling feed by conduit? How many switches on the wall? If you have 2 switches, pull them out and see which switch controls which wire. Connect the black of the fan to the colored wire of the switch you want to use. Cap the other with a wirenut. White to white. Green to the metal box with a ground screw.
Just because you can, doesn't always mean you should
