I replaced my patio light with an outdoor ceiling fan with a light fixture. I want to control the light by using the wall switch, which by the way, has three separate wires going into the box with each wire having a black, white and bare wire. I connected everything correctly, but now I can only control the light by pulling the chain, not by the light switch. Any suggestions
There should be 4 wires in the fan box. Fan hot, light hot, common neutral, and grounding. You need to connect the fan conductor to the constant hot and connect the light conductor to the switch leg from the switch.
