I am replacing a ceiling fan in one room and when I took the old one down I found 2 black wires tied together(one of which is hot), one white ground wire, one hot white wire, and one red wire, and a copper ground coming from the ceiling. I only have one switch in the room to operate the light. The fan was wired hot and turned on and off by the pull chain.
I know the red switch wire attaches to the blue wire in the new fan. I know the two white ground wires connect I know the green wire in the fan connects to the ground.
I cannot figure out what to do with the remaining three wires. As a side note - disconnecting the fan in here has also caused power going to the other sections of the room on this breaker loose power.
