    When putting up a ceiling fan does the green wire go with the green?
    I am trying to hook up a ceiling fan and I have four wires, there is a green, blue, white and black. I know that the white goes with the white, the green with the green and I know the black goes with the black, where does the blue go?

    The blue feeds your light fixture while the black feeds the fan motor. Both go to the black from the ceiling. Does this fan have pull chains or a remote?
