I alway jump the leads to all ceiling fans, before installing them, to be sure
the product works. You could do the same. To be sure, you must know
what color conductor is used for the ground/netural.

I use a meter to find out which one is the netural.

Good luck to you. And please work safe.

This is why there are standards that specify certain colors and their purpose. The instructions also tell you the functions of the wires.
