Electrical Question about Ceiling Fan Wiring


By Dave Rongey - Summary:

Installing ceiling fan on an existing switch. Had to install box and run 14/2 wire from ceiling fan and was running to switch. The light switch only controlled wall plug but was not direct power in. Had 2 wires, a black and white on switch so guessing it was on/off feed for plug only.

Question: Installing ceiling fan on an existing switch. Had to install box and run 14/2 wire from ceiling fan and was running to switch. The light switch only controlled wall plug but was not direct power in. Had 2 wires, a black and white on switch so guessing it was on/off feed for plug only. Any idea how it can be connected if possible to switch or where I can tie in new wire to work off switch?
