I recently took our old fan and light fixture down to try to repair. I cut the wires between the light and the fan. Upon trying to put them back together I find I have a problem. Out of the fan motor I have Black, White, Red, and Blue. I think the Red, White and Blue are Blue power, White Power, Red Power, but what is the Black? Any suggestions?

I suggest you pull the light and see what it's wires are, assuming they just thread throught the center of the fan. You should be able to see the color match on that side.

I have fans from 3 or 4 different manufacturers. Other than white, black and green, there's no consistency between the rest. Sorry.
