I bought a new fan with an LED light, so the dimmer switch connected to the old fan has to be switched. When I pulled out the switch, I found a confusing set up.
The current wiring colors don't quite match. Currently it is hooked up as:
- Switch's B/W wire is joined to a Red and White coming from the box
- Switch's Blue wire is joined to another Red coming from the box
- Switch's Black wire is joined to a Black wire coming from the box
- Ground is as expected.
Here is an photo of the current switch:
The 4-connection switch in the other room is wired as expected, however, the white wires don't have the expected black tape on the ends.
My question is: what is the appropriate way to replace this custom dimmer/fan switch with a standard 3-connection switch - which wires go where and what to do with the extra red wire?
