there was no blue wire that i could see. i had another fan with a light installed at the same time and looked at how that was wired. the white wire from the socket is conneted at a white wire from the fan, which in turn is connetted to a whole group of white wires. the one i wired is done exactly like the other one. (which works). you think i need to take the fan away from the ceiling and see if a blue wire is coming down from the attic?
