We are replacing an old ceiling fan with a new Hunter ceiling fan. The instructions say to connect the black wire in the new fan with the blue and black wire from the fixture. There is an extra red wire. What do we do with that? Can we just cap it off?

    Is the red wire in the electrical box or in the fan?

    Difficult to say. Fans come with several wirings, and homes have several styles of wiring to support different fan hookups. Nov 15 '19 at 17:25
