Switching out a ceiling fan for a regular light
I have removed a ceiling fan\light and am now trying to install a simple light, however, I am running into a problem. I turned off power to the room and turned the switch off. I detached the green ground, the white from white & black from black & blue from blue on ceiling fan, to remove it. The new light has 2 black wires & green ground. See pic attached. When I attached one black to white and other black to black and just capped the blue & green to green. I switched the power on (switch was in the off position on the wall)and the light came ON. My dilemma is that the switch does not turn the light on or off?? Please help.
HI. Yes you need to cap off the black from the ceiling (which is constant) and connect the light to the blue (which is controlled by the switch). Make sure the blue connects to the light socket's center tab (hot) and the white to the outside (neutral).
