You have 3 options. You can connect the fan blue and the fan black to the red ceiling wire. Then you will need to control the fan and light with the strings. The wall switch will turn off everything. Option 2 is make sure that there is a switch wired to the black ceiling wire. If there is a switch I would check to make sure the switch is working. Option 3 is to purchase a remote control unit for both and leave the wall switch to shutoff the whole unit. Hope this helps.
there is it all depends on how many strands of wire are in there, they start at 2 wire and go to i think 8 wire and maybe more.
The wires are as follows:
1. red = power to stat.
2. green = fan control
3. blue or yellow = ac
4. white = heat
w1 = 1st. stage heat
w2 = 2nd. stage heat.
i am on line if you have any questions. wally
outside unit L1 and L2 are load (input 240vac) then you have control voltage, usually yellow and blue (24vac) this connects to some 18/2 thermostat wire which goes inside as white and red.
note: this unit may only need 24v control which is 2 wires from the inside unit and also 3 wires 2 hot 1 ground for line voltage.
STANDARD WIRING on the inside unit you have green, white, blue and red control wires.
on your thermostat you have white, red, yellow and green
you run the wire from the outside unit to the inside unit. then run a 18/4 wire to the thermostat if wired and join the following wires.
inside unit thermostat outside unit green------------------------green white-------------------------white red----------------------------red blue-------------------------------------------------------blue yellow--------------------yellow
Paul, you will need to look at the indoor unit and determine which wires from outside are connected inside. let me know. more then likley they color coded it but better to be safe. also does the fan inside still run if you switch thermostat to fan ON. if not the transformer may have blown, if yes you need to make sure you shut the breaker controlling the inoor unit off while your messing with the wires, or you will blow the transformer in the furnace

2) K900 18DB/DG Sensor Ground 2) Black 2) DB / DG = Dark Blue/Grak Green unit with Black
3) K161 18BR/LB Fan Speed Sensor White 3) BR / LB = Brown/Light Blue unit with White
4) Not Used 4) Not Used
5) F856 18YL/PK 5 Volt Supply Orange 5) YL/PK = Yellow/Pink unit with Orange
6) F504 20GY/PK Fused Ig. Sw. Output Red 6) GY/PK = Gray/Pink unit with Red
With this, you have 5 due color cables unit to the 5 full color cables. Run.
The red and the black are the hot wires. One will be the fan and one is the light. The white is the 'common' for both fan and light. It sounds like the new fixture has got one hot for both the light and fan, they will both run all the time from one switch. This is the blue wire. Hook it to the red or the black, which ever one comes from the switch you want to control it. Hook the white to the white on the new fixture. The green is just a ground. hook it to the new fixture green or ground terminal. Cap or the black or the red that you don't use. It won't be need for the new one. The switch that it comes from will not control anything now.
red wire common (hot) control voltage will control furnace and condensing unit red wire may be nothing if unit is running typical hook up red hot common green is fan yellow is cooling white is heat blue is usually neutral to transformer and to wire going to condensing unit red and white the freeze could be dirty coil, filter or both and possibly under charged.

Hook the fan's wires up as follows:
black = black (hot)
white = white (neutral)
green = green or bare copper wire (ground)
red = not used, so cap off (hot)
The red wire is for a light kit. You may have a second switch on the wall to control this. Usually, the ceiling fan will have a red with a green tracer wire that goes with the red wire. If not just cap the red wire off and don't use it.
