I've purchased a Hampton Bay ceiling fan with a lamp and I'm trying to connect it to my house wiring. I can see the following house wires:
- 2 connected (twisted) white wires
- one wire of blue'ish color (maybe purple, I'm not good with colors)
What I've tried:
- I connected the white fan wire to the white twisted pair of house wires.
- All the other fan wires were connected to the blue house wire. Result: short circuit and a broken switch.
How should I connect my ceiling fan to the house wires that I have?
