Hi someone was cleaning the dust off a ceiling fan in my house today and the screw broke off from the ceiling so we had to take it apart to fix it.
Now we are trying to figure out the wiring the person that removed it didn't check what went into what. The ceiling has a black wire, blue wire and a green wire which I guess is the ground. The ceiling fan has a white wire, blue wire and black wire. The black wire on the ceiling fan says motor, blue says light and white says neutral.
We tried the obvious black to black and blue to blue it didn't seem to work at all. We then tried black to black and blue and white to blue. And that seems to get the fan working but the light doesn't and switch on the wall is able to turn the fan off and on with this wiring.
Also the fan has two pull cords one of the light and one for the fan. It also has a switch on the side I guess to turn it off since the fan won't spin when its pushed to one side.
Are we doing something wrong? We thought of trying the blue/black from ceiling fan to the black on the ceiling since the black is working for the motor but we aren't sure if that was dangerous to try.
Also the fan is a Harbor Breeze brand unit.
The wiring from the fan.
The wiring from the ceiling.
Also here is a closer picture of the green wire its only connected to the screw on the bracket on the ceiling. I don't see anywhere it goes on the ceiling fan.
