Ok, I removed my old fan, and *thought* I drew an entire diagram of the

old wiring setup. What I didnt relize until I tried wiring the new fan

was I forgot to draw where the white wires were connected to on the old

fan!

Here is my setup:

>From the fan box in ceiling I have (2) sets of wires.

Black/White/Ground and Black/White/Ground. On the old fan, I know that

one of the black wires were connected to the Blue and Black wire on the

fan. I know that the other black wire was connected to the white wire

on the fan. What I dont know is where the other white wires connect to

:(

Any ideas where I should connect the other (2) white wires? I tried

different combinations, nothing worked :(

Open the switch box and see if you just have the one set of wires with both the black and wire wires connected to the switch.

If so, what you have is a switch leg.

One of the sets of wires supply the power and the other is the switch leg.

You need to identify which is which.

Connect the black from the power set to the WHITE on the switch leg. Place back tape on the switch leg hot (at both ends) to indicate that it is how a hot wire.

The black on the switch leg is now the SWITCHED hot.

It connects to the black and blue wires on the fan.

The fan white connects to the white on the power supply set.

All ground connect together and to the fan ground.
