Question about Dryers
Had to replace ceiling fan with light. Someone came and did it. Went to turn on light from wall and it worked. Went to turn on fan from wall didn't work. Neighbor said it was wired wrong. Took it down. Have 3 cables coming from ceiling box with 8 wires. Cable 1 and 2 have 3 wires, cable 3 has 2 wires. Cable 1 (C1) has a fat black, fat white and ground wire. Cable 2 (C2) has a skinny white, skinny black and skinny red wire. Cable 3 (3) has a fat black and a fat white. The fan has green/ground, blue/light, white/neutral and black/motor. I unhooked everything. Can anyone tell me how to connet the 8 ceiling wires to what wires on the fan? I know the ground wire in Cable 1 goes to green. The rest is a mystery.

You need two switches. It sounds like the Electrician set up the junction box for two circuits(Lights and Fans). i say this because your supply has 4 wires, Red , Black, White and Bare. We may be able to oversome this with one Lutron Switch. Allow me to investigate, and I will be back.
