In reply to Ceiling fan/light - works, but not via the wall switch? by cwb on November 20th, 2000 04:09 AM [Go to top of thread]

The red and black are both hot wires so be very careful. Do you have a tester? It really depends upon if your power is coming in at the ceiling or at the switch box. Pull the switch and describe what wires you see and what is hooked together and/or hooked to the switch and if any wire has any tape wrapped around it. Also describe if there are any other switches in the box and how and what they are connected.(if this was prewired for a fan, then one switch would control the fan and one for the light)
