Correct More Info Needed.

1) How many wires in the ceiling box?
2) What color are they? (wires in the ceiling box)
3) Do you have one or two switches. One for the light and one for the fan or just one for both fan and light.
4) Whats the model number for the fan/heater.
5) Was there a fan and light there before.

Be aware that if it is a heater, then it may require dedicated circuit.

There are two armored cables- one for each side of the fan housing unit one of the cables has two wires (one black one white) The other cable has three wires (one red one white one black) There are seven wires inside the fan's wire connection box. Colors in box are three white wires, one red wire, one black wire, one yellow wire and one green ground wire. I only have one switch, The make is General Electric model # BFLH70L The same type of fan with a heater, fan and light was there before.

Because you did not mark your wires so you would know how to re-connect the wires, I am going to give you the manual with the wiring instructions on it. This is the complete manual for the unit you have. If you still need help I will be back later today, maybe I should say. This will serve as a lesson to anyone that removes wires from any device, fixture or appliance to make sure they take notes or mark the wires.

Just take it easy and print out the 8 pages.
