I had a new ceiling fan installed tonight, it replaced an existing old school ceiling fan. With the old fan the wall switch turned off the power completely to the fan. And it had 2 chains, 1 for the light and 1 for the fan.
The new ceiling fan has a remote that controls the fan/light. I would have thought I could still use the wall switch for turning everything off at once, but it no longer works.
Did a wire get connected incorrectly or is this what I have to deal with to use the remote?
