Need help with wiring in the new fan and light combo switch.


Hey everyone, first post here. I just finished putting up a new ceiling fan, everything is working great but now i want to replace the old switches with the new combo switch it came with. Having some trouble figuring out the wiring. Ill let the pictures do the talking because i think ill just confuse everyone otherwise.

Im going to link to the album pages on fotki because the original photos are huge.

White, Black and a copper wire come into the conduit from the lower sleeve of wires. White, Black, Red, and a copper wire go up to the fan from the top of the conduit. The new switch has a Red, Blue, and Black wire.

Thanks for any help!

White a black from the bottom are the power feed.
White fro m3 wire is the neutral. Leave t as is connected to the other white.
Black is the fan power. Connect to the fan connection on your combo controller
Red is the light connection. Connect to the light connection on your combo controller.

so that leaves the blue wire, that would get connected to the black wire that goes out of the bottom?
