There was a old ceiling fan with light and remote in a bedroom of my house that didn't work. It also had a switch with 2 knobs that pushed in and turned labeled
motor control and
300 w perm instld incand it had 3 wires coming out of it red, black, and yellow, but the yellow wasn't connected.
Coming from the box was red and black which are both hot and were connected to the switch, and white.
So in the ceiling I have 3 cables, 2 of them black and white, and the 3rd is red, white and black.
So I bought a Hampton Bay 52" Ceiling fan with light and remote. I connected all the wires like the manual said . Nothing would work. So I connected it without the remote receiver and when I turn back on the power it comes on. But with no remote I cant control it.
I purchased a Lutron fan control & Dimmer Skylark s2-lfsqh-wh. And I cannot get it to connect to the fixture.
