Simple fix, but you can no longer control 1/2 the recep.

Go to the switched recep, take it apart and rewire it....whites to whites and blacks to blacks. Put a new recep in that doesn't have the tab broken out.

You now have a hot (black) and a neutral (white) at your fan switch.

White together at sw box, black incoming power to the sw, red and black outgoing to the fan/light.

You can't do it with the existing and you cant put a recep on a dimmer.

If you still want the 1/2 switched recep, your best bet would be to:




Leave the wiring as is with the 2 wire in the sw box operating the recep.

and

Change the single gang switch box to a 2 gang box and and run a new two wire feed for the fan/light from a close recept or other power source.
