I was installing a ceiling fan with a handheld remote controll.
I installed a wall switch and hooked it up to other wires in the switch already there that ran a set of hallway lights.
I had hooked up the wires to the switch and turned the switch on. I tested the wires hanging out off the ceiling and I was getting 110 v.
I installed the ceiling fan and hooked up the white to white and black to black and the ground.
When I flipped the new wal switch, I heared a little popping sound and nothing happened to the fan. I could not get it to do anything with or without the remote.
I took the fan down and opened up the fan motor casing.
I found that the controller circuit board was fried.
Does anyone know what I did wrong??
