I used to have a ceiling fan/light combination that was controlled by a wall switch the controlled both the fan speed and dimmed the light.
I bought a new fan/light that is controlled by a remote control device. Therefore, the wall switch must be converted to an on off switch only. I am having a tough time determining which wires to use.
In the box behind the wall switch I have the following wires:
One set of wires has a black wire, white wire, and ground.
The second set of wires has a black wire, white wire, red wire and ground.
currently, the two white wires are connected and capped together. In addition, the two ground wires are connected and turned into one ground wire.
up at the ceiling, I have a set of four wires coming out… Red, black, white and green. The remote transmitter can only except two wires, because it has the hole type connector, not the screw type connector.
Is anyone able to help me determine which wires to use at the wall switch, and which wires to use in the ceiling? Do I cap off the unused wire at each end, or do I connect it to another wire somehow?
