ceiling fan remote control

Posted by Josh Pearson on June 20th, 2001 11:05 AM

I am a novice do-it-yourselfer. I am in the process of installing a new ceiling fan in one of my rooms. The old fan was only controlled with the chains that hung off the fan. The new fan has a remote control. My question is:
The reciever for the remote control has only two wires going in (white and black) and three wires coming out to the fan (white, black, and blue). The ceiling fixture has three wires coming out of it (white, black, and red) plus a ground wire. How do I connect these three wires to my remote control reciever which has only two? Is there some way to combine two of them?
