If requiring only one switch for the fan and one for the light:

  • Neutral: white wire. The light and fan both will have a white wire for neutral – this is common
  • Red: Positive for light and  fan – one red wire for each one  – Hot
  • Black: Hot
  • Bare wire: Ground

Start by testing power at breaker – ensure there is no power –  use a non-contact voltage tester if at all possible. Be aware of possible electrical shock, so non-contact is best.

Find all of the green grounding wires, or bare, and connect them together.

Look for white wire from ceiling – connect it to the remote receiver module – white wire, inside of the fan

  • Black wire – connect from ceiling to the remote receiver module inside of the fan – black wire
  • Blue wire – connect it from the output side of the remote receiver system, inside the fan to the blue wire inside of there
  • Red wire – connecting from the output side of the fan’s receiver module
