I installed a ceiling fan a while ago, Hunter brand. My room has two switches; one for light, one for fan. When I turn both of them on, but I just want to have the lights on, the lights go off when I flip the fan off. This is driving me bananas because I rechecked the wiring on the ceiling. Please help.
If the lights don't work at all, when the fan is not on: (and assuming the incoming power goes to the switches and does not come from the ceiling)
The switch for the fan, powers the switch for the lights. Instead, the incoming power at the wall switch's J-box needs a pig-tail, to feed the two switches.
Beyond that, I'd need a detailed description (preferably pictures) of the ceiling box and wall box, noting what goes where and which ones are the incoming.
