wiring a fan


How is the switch wired?
How many wires in the ceiling box?
Where is the ground wire?
Where are you located?

If you do not have a light kit, check the switch to see if the black or red is connected to the dimmer switch if there is one. If you have a light kit, there should be two hots, two neutrals.
