I want to update my ceiling fan. I uninstalled the old fan. It was controlled by 2 switches. One controlled the light, the other the fan. There are only 3 wires coming out of the ceiling. Black, white, and bare. However, the black wire has white tape on it, the white wire has black tape on it, and the bare ground also has white tape on it. The black wire with white tape was connected to the fan's white wire. The white wire with black tape was connected to the fan's black wire. The bare wire with white tape was connected to the fan's blue wire! The green ground wire from the fan was connected to the fan bracket.
I have a new fan/light with remote. I installed it according to the instructions, ignoring the tape, and using the actual wire color and connecting the bare wire to the fan's ground.
Nothing's working - no power. What to do next?
With some help from a friend, I think we have it sorted out:
