I replaced a ceiling fan because the fan motor was not working, but the lights were. I would have assumed I would wire the Red (R) wire to the black and blue ceiling fan wires and the White (W) wire to the ceiling fan white wire. Of course also attach the Green (G) ground wires and just cap the Black (B) wire in the ceiling fixture.
However, when I did this nothing works. So, I measured the voltage coming from the wires and have confusing results. Why these odd results? W/B - 230 volts. This means both wires are hot, right? W/R - 50 volts with the wall switch one way, 230 volts with the switch the other way. R/B - 160 volts with the wall switch one way, 5 volts with the wall switch the other way.
I expected W/R would show 120 volts switched on and 0 volts switched off.
