Need Help on Fan / light


Need help on were the wires go
I rewired a room. I Had the old knob and tube. The new wire Feed / source. I ran to the Light / Fan with 12-2. then I ran 12-3 out to the wall switch. And 12-2 from the wall switch to the receptacles. I would like to keep the Fan and receptacles Hot at all times.
And control the Light with the wall switch. Iím Only using one wall switch.
the fan has a blue - black and white wire.

Thank you

In the fan box you will splice the white from the 12-2 feed to the white of the 12-3 switch leg AND the white on the fan wiring.

You will splice the black wire from the 12-2 feed to the black wire of the 12-3 switch leg AND the black wire on the fan.

Finally, you will splice the red wire from the 12-3 switchleg to the blue wire on the fan.

At the switchbox you will splice the white wire from the 12-3 switchleg to the white wire going out to the receptacle.

You will splice the black wire from the 12-3 switchleg to the black wire going out to the receptacle AND to a short 8" piece of wire that will go to one screw on the switch.

The red wire from the 12-3 switchleg will connect to the other screw on the switch.

The receptacle will be a normal installation, white to silver screw, black to brass screw.

I am having trouble following the original post as to where the cables in all cases originate.The reason I am having trouble with this is that the switched receptacle does not have a ground,
