wiring a ceiling fan
I am replacing a ceiling fan and needed help with the wiring. When I took the old one down I unfortunately didn't note the connections.
In the junction box I see 2 sets of wires, each with 4 wires: black, white, red, and bare (ground). If I just cap off all the wires in the junction box, 2 rooms in the house lose power.
The wall switch that controls the fan has 2 sets of wires coming in, but only one has 4 wires (black, white, red, ground) and the other one has 3 wires (black, white, ground). In the wall switch, the black wires are tied together and connect to the switch. The red wire also connects to the switch. The two white wires are tied together and the the two ground wires are connected together.
BTW, the fan has 4 wires (black, blue (light kit), white, and green (ground)).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
