I have a ceiling light/fan fixture that also has a dimmer and Im trying to replace it just a ceiling light fixture.
My problem is the old fan/light fixture uses 3 wires (black,white,red) and the new unit uses 2 (black,white). Now I figured I could just cap the red wire and use the back and white ones, but i was wrong. When I turn the power back on the new unit stays permenantly on. I have no control with the light switch/dimmer.
Is this something I can fix or should I call a proffesional?
I really apprecaite any feedback. Thanks!
