I have replaced an old ceiling fan with a down light controlled by 2 wall switches. 1 for the light (with a dimmer) and 1 for the fan(standard switch). The old unit worked fine just time for an upgrade. The new units has 2 lights(up and down) and all functions are controlled by remote control. The ceiling box has 2 ground, 2 white, 1 black and 1 white/blue wires. The fan has 1 black, 1 white, 1 blue, 1 orange and a ground. The remote control box, on the out side, has color corresponding black,white,blue and orange wires that are wired as such. On the in side of the remote control box are 1 white and 1 black wire. I have the black from remote control box wired to the 2 white from the celing and the white from the remote control box wired to the black and white/blue from the celing. The standard switch turns on the lights and the remote will then control the fan. The dimmer switch does not work. How can I wire this so that both of the lights and fan work independenty either with the remote or from the wall switches

I am not sure what you have. For example you mention the INSIDE and OUTSIDE of the remote control box.

Also the color codes of the wires for the fan and the remote control vary, but they should be in the instructions.

Was this remote control system part of the fan or was it a separate addon unit?

Is the remote device a handheld unit or is it designed to replace the wall switch.

Basically with a remote system you can have control from both it and a wall switch. When the wall switch is off then the whole fan is off and the remote can turn it on. And it can only be wired through a plan switch and not a dimmer.

If the remote was an addon why did you get it. With a standard fan you can get controls to control both the light (dimmer) and the fan speed (but not reverse it) if you have the wires from the switche(s) to the fan. Which you apparently did with the old fan.

Now if this remote was an add on them it *MIGHT* be possible to wire it so that the wall switch control one part and the remote the other part.

The remote came with the fan. Inside and outside refer to power in and power out of the remote box from the ceiling box. The color coded wires connecting the fan and remote box are wired per the instructions and are correct. The remote is hand held and the remote box as I have refered to it here sits atop the down rod holder. The problem is the remote will not control the lights and the fan.

First you said "The standard switch turns on the lights and the remote will then control the fan. The dimmer switch does not work. How can I wire this so that both of the lights and fan work independenty either with the remote or from the wall switches"

Now you say that it remote doesn't work.

" The problem is the remote will not control the lights and the fan.".

As I said before the wall switch has to be on and then it can be controlled from the remote.

But you can't have two independent controls.

Now that I understand what you where talking about with the remote wiring I took a second look.

"On the in side of the remote control box are 1 white and 1 black wire. I have the black from remote control box wired to the 2 white from the celing and the white from the remote control box wired to the black and white/blue from the celing."

It is not wired right, but I can't tell you what the correct way is from the information that I have.

I assume that this is in conduit because of the white/blue wire.

Is there just the one conduit in the ceiling box. If not which wires are in the same conduit.

Is the wall switch and dimmer in on 2 gang box or two separate boxes?

Open up the wall boxe(s) and what conduit and what wires are in it and what is connected to what?

Give it up Billfart. It's obvious you don't know what you talking through your ass.
