The answers are (a bit confusingly...) in the Installation Manual
According to page 5 (6th page in PDF but 5 at the bottom corner), the fan has:
- Grounding wire (what we usually call "ground") - all grounds go together
- White wire which connects to Grounded (which is what we usually call "neutral") white wire
- Black - Hot
- Blue or Black with white stripe - Hot
The grounds go together.
The white/neutrals go together - including fan, receiver and ceiling
The two hot wires from the fan go to the receiver
The black wire from the receiver goes to the switched hot wire from the ceiling
So it is (a) poor design - the receiver should be prewired/installed, but oops that might cost the manufacturer and extra 50 cents and (b) they should be consistent in their wire colors (not "blue or possibly black with white stripe") and (c) should use (or at least include) the more common terminology. Ugh. But I digress.
Now on to your switch:
I have a black wire, red wire, and white wire. No ground.
That sounds like a typical /3 cable, except that you should also have a bare ground wire. See if it is stuffed in the back of the box.
But here is the fun part: The design of this is to always leave the switch on and install the remote holder on top of the switch - see page 8 "Using the Remote Cradle". That is actually a pretty good idea, except again for terminology (this is really "Installing", not "Using") and they don't make it terribly clear that the switch behind the cradle is to be left on all the time.
End result with your switch. You have two very different possibilities:
This should be:
- Black = Hot (from the breaker)
- Red = Switched Hot (to the fan)
- White = Neutral (to the fan & breaker - but not needed in the switch - cap it with a wire nut and a piece of tape to make sure it stays on)
In which case, just connect black & red to the switch and you are done.
This is if you have an older setup without neutral in the switch box and using a switch loop.
* White = Hot Normally white is neutral, this is the exception. And it should be marked to show it is actually hot. But it usually isn't marked.
* Black = Switched Hot
* Red = Switched Hot
In this case, you need to figure out which of the switched hots (black or red) goes to the fan. Connect that wire and the white wire to the switch and you are done.
