Question about Hunter Vaulted Ceiling Mount - Antique Brass Fan
I am installing a ceiling fan and light kit and am having trouble wiring them. The wall has 2 switches, but only one romex goes to the fan. There are two blacks and two whites coming into the box. One white coming in is connected to the bottom switch and the other white is connected to the white going out. One black wire coming in is connected directly to the top switch on one side. The other black wire coming in is wired to the one going out and a third is connected to this and runs to the other side of the top switch. I have on the ceiling one black and one white. How do we wire this ceiling fan and light kit to this configuration where one switch is for the light and one for the fan. The old fan was wired for these switches but unfortunately our son took it down without us seeing how it was wired first.
If you have only one black and one white in the ceiling to connect the fan / light to , then you have only one switch for this ceiling box. The fan / light will connect the white wires together and then the two colored wires on the fan to the black ceiling wire. In order to use separate switches for the fan and the lighht a 4 wire cable must go from the switches to the light so you have a red and black wire to switch the two separately .
