If you have only a black and white (and bare ground wire) in the ceiling box where the old fan was connected before, you should connect both the blue and black wires from the fan to the Black (common) wire in the ceiling box.
Then connect the white wire from the fan to the white (neutral) wire in the box together. Connect the green and bare wires together (Ground wires) and the fan and light should function with the pull chains as designed.
IF you have a wall switch for the ceiling fan and a separate one for the light, it is simply a matter of making the connections for the light and fan to the proper wires going to the wall switch box. Typically, the ceiling fan's light wire (blue in most cases) is connected to the red wire in the ceiling box, while the fan wire (black in most cases) is connected to the black wire in the ceiling box. Connect the white wires together; and then the green and bare wires together for your ground and you should be set.
Remember to disconnect the power to this circuit by turning off the breaker before doing any wiring work.
I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
As it's protected by circuit breaker it also might be fused, so check for fuses. Next just dig to the wiring and measure the resistance betveen Live and Neutral using simple multimeter. If there's no reading then there might be a small fuse (or thermofuse) attached to the windings, make sure this one is fine, if yes then motor windings are burned and you'll need new fan, otherwise just replace the fuse.
Sounds like you could have a problem with the fan....but there is also an equaly good chance it's the wiring of the fan. Perhaps a loose connection. If you are not familiar with checking electrical connections, you probably need to call an electrician to check the wiring SOON, before there is a short. If all connections are good, then you will know it's the fan (or the remote receiver on the fan).
Hope this helps!
