I've been looking online but I'm not very knowledgeable on this so bear with me please...
The pull chain on my ceiling fan came off. I unscrewed the bottom of my ceiling fan (where the lighting stuff is) and found that I couldn't get to the bit of chain left. I had to break off a piece of plastic (just a cosmetic thing I'm sure as it was the bit that would stick out of the metal casing and where a knob would screw on to make it look nice) and was able to get to the chain.
Now, that's all good as I found something to extend it with, the only thing is I don't know how to get the lights to work. I tried my best not to mess with the wiring at all, but two of the wire nuts fell off before I could determine what they were connected to.
I just want to know what needs to be connected.
I see a white wire that runs down through the top of the fan and is held with a wire nut to 4 other whites which go to each light. There is a black wire paired with each white one but they are loose and not connected to anything (thinking this might be where one of the 2 fallen wire nuts goes?).
There's also a black wire that comes down from the top of the fan that I assume is the hot wire. That is connected to another black which goes into the piece where the pull chain for the light is. Besides that black wire, there are 2 short wires coming out of that piece, a blue one and a red. On the piece there is a tiny number by each of the 3 wires. 1 is where the red is, 2 is blue, and by the black is what looks like an "L."
Sorry I don't know much about this and so hopefully the way I worded it isn't too confusing. I just want to be careful so I thought it best to ask around before trying things out. Oh, and the fan works it's just the lights that I can't figure out. I just don't know what wires should go together. Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.
Oh, forgot to mention that there is one switch operating the thing. So normally to use I just flip the switch on and then use the pull chains to either turn on the fan, light, or both.
