Installing a Ceiling fan

I installed a ceiling that is controlled by a remote. I connected all the wires that the directions indicated. I have a red wire that I do not know what to do with.

Installing a Ceiling fan

The red wire is most likely there to switch iether the fan or the light kit. Simply put a wirenut on it. I'm guessing you now have an extra wall switch, also.

Installing a Ceiling fan

are you talking about a red wire in the ceiling, or a red wire on the transmitter,if it's the the red wire from the transmitter then it should connect with black line from the ceiling,the black line from the transmitter connect with the black line from the ceiling fan
