I'm trying to install a new ceiling fan that is controlled by one wall switch. The fan came with a pull-chain that controls the 3 speeds; and also comes with an optional light kit. But I am not using the light assembly and have removed it from the fan. However, I noted that there is still one wiring harness that must be connected within the fan assembly...presumably in order for the pull-chain assembly to work.
The fan comes with a black, blue, white and green wire. The wiring at the ceiling box consists of one red, one black, one white and a green wire. I think I know what all these wires represent in terms of the current carried in each. My question is: given that the light is not going to be used, do I need to connect only the black to black, white to white, and green to green wires (and cap the red wire), or do I still need to utilize the red and/or blue wires--and if so, in what way? Thanks for any insights.
