I came up with a solution so I'm going to to go ahead and post it in case anyone else should happen upon this and find it useful.I added the 1-in, 2-out, 4-position speed switch into the diagram. The switch works by taking one input and routing it thusly:[1: (off) | 2:A | 3:B | 4:A+B] and in this way controls speed by energizing either one part, 2 parts, or ...

Based on your description, it sounds like your wiring is this. To wire the fan, you will need to remove the switched loop and convert it to a regular wire. So in the outlet box, disconnect the neutrals and hots. Wire cap all 3 neutrals together with a pig tail to reconnect the outlet, do the same for the hots. At the switch, remove the neutral from the ...

From experience having installed more than 15 ceiling fans: wires should be no shorter than 4 ...

Verify there's power at the fan After the simple ON/OFF test, the next thing to check is that the fixture is getting power. Set your multimeter to measure AC volts. Put the ...

"I have tried switching the wires at both the switch and at the fan box and neither worked." this is a really bad idea. One wire is hot, one is neutral, and one is grounded. The fan is designed to work with each one connected properly and in no other way. You could have easily blown a fuse, breaker or insulation in the fan by connecting it improperly. Sorry ...

Easy. Cap off the red at both locations. The remaining black wires at the wall will connect to a standard single pole switch, and the remaining wires in the ceiling will connect to the receiver as directed by the manufactures instructions.
