I took my fan down because it was not working..... I cleaned it thoroughly, and recut all the wires. I checked everything and it worked fine. Next, I went to fully assemble it, (knowing that the motor was working now) and a blue wire fell out of the fan motor itself. I know where to connect it to the ceiling, However I do not know where this blue wire goes to the fan box itself....

It connects the house wiring to the light kit if the fan has one, if the fan does not have a light, it does not need it, it is just a spare wire.


As Jack said - usually for a light - if you have a light, I'd try to trace the light wiring inside the fixture and find where it broke off of.
