I removed a ceiling fan (with a light) and want to replace it with just a fixture. From the ceiling box there is an orange wire, red, two white (nutted together) and a green.
At the wall switch there is an orange, red (two nutted together) white (three nutted together, and green. The dimmer switch to the right of the ceiling fan switch has a black wire nutted to the red pair coming into the switch. The other dimmer wire is nutted to a blue wire.
I was attempting to wire the switch yesterday. Connecting the switch to the red and the orange wire gave me no control of the light (wouldn't turn on at the switch). Connecting to the red and the white wires gave me power to the light but only switched at the electrical panel.
My new dimmer has two red wires, a black, and a green at the back.
