I'm trying to wire a ceiling fan in my bedroom (condo built in 2014).
The bedroom currently has two wall switches and a single ceiling light (no fan). The right switch turns the light on/off and the left switch does nothing. The ceiling box has a black, white, red, and green wire. The red wire is connected to nothing.1
I bought a new fan that doesn't use a remote. It has a one gang switch with separate controls for the light and the fan. The switch has 4 wires: white (load), blue (light), black (motor), and green (ground). The fan has 5 wires: black (motor), blue (light), white (neutral motor), orange (neutral light), green (ground).
I want to verify that I'm wiring this correctly.
For the wall switch:
- Connect the black from the left switch to the black (motor) on the new switch.
- Connect the black from the right switch to the blue (light) on the new switch.
- Connect the white from the right switch to the white (load) on the new switch.
- Connect the green on the new switch to the ground.
For the ceiling box:
- Connect the fan black to the ceiling black.
- Connect the fan blue to the ceiling red.
- Connect the fan white, fan orange, to the ceiling white and tie the three wires together.
- Connect the fan green to the ceiling green.
Is this correct? Do I do anything with the white wire from the left switch? Does my wall switch really look more like this (in which case, I can probably connect directly to the red wire)?:
Here's a picture of the ceiling box and switch box (sorry for the poor lighting). Thanks for your help.
