Ceiling Fan Wiring Electrical Wiring

Question: My wife picked up a ceiling fan from a friend. However the only information that I can get off the fan is that it has a model # ELD52BB. A web search finds nothing on this model. This ceiling fan is rated at 120 volts, 60HZ & 3.05amps. It has four wires white,black,blue & green.The wall switch that cane with the house is rated 120V & 60HZ it has two knobs one for the fan rated 3 amp max & one for the light and is rated 300 Watt Max. The ceiling box has two sets of wiring one set that is wrapped with a white covering has a white,black & copper. The second set that is wrapped with a black covering has a white,black,red & copper. Can’t figure out how I’m suppose to connect all of the wires.
