Ceiling fan light doesn't work; fan only goes one speed
Asked May 13, 2012, 04:11 AM
Hi, I'm looking for help w/new ceiling fan. There is a double switch on 1 wall where 1 switch turns on fan; 1 turns on light. On the other wall there is 1 switch and it only turns on the light of the ceiling fan. Took down old fan. It had ground, white, black, & blue wires. It was wired ground to ground, white to white, black to black, and blue to red. New fan had no blue wire but had black & white striped wire, so I hooked it up ground to ground, white to white, black to black, and black & white stripe to red. Now when I use the switches, the fan only turns one speed and the light doesn't come on. I have tried the chains to be sure it wasn't switched off and to try changing speeds on fan. Any suggestions? Thanks!
