Hampton bay ceiling fan-light works-fan doesn't
Asked Jun 5, 2006, 08:59 AM
I installed a new Hampton Bay ceiling fan outdoors and the light works from a wall switch but the fan doesn't work at all. There is a white, black, red and ground wire coming from the ceiling. There is a white, black, black/white stripe (light) and green ground coming from the fan.
I attached the white to white, black to black, red to black/white stripe and green to ground. The light works when the wall switch is flipped but the fan doesn't work from the wall switch or manually from the chain.
The wall switch is a double switch. One switch works the existing patio light and the other switch now works the light on the ceiling fan but not the fan itself. There is no remote for this fan.
Should be fairly simple. What have I done wrong? Any advide would be helpful.
