Electrical Question about: Ceiling Fan Wiring
Received from Bert a Homeowner in Essex Jct., Vt
The wiring instructions say:
connect ground to ground
connect white to white
connect black to black
connect black/white to black/white
I don’t have a black/white coming from the existing box
I have a ground, white, black and red wires.
Am I to connect the black/white coming from the fan to the red?
Everything else looks easy.
Thanks for your help!!
