Question about Electrical Supplies
I've checked and the white wire is the load...thanks
Trust Me ...I am an electrician. There is no way (legally) to do what you want to do with the wiring that exists. One of two things can happen at this point...1) rewire the switch leg with 3 wire cable (Type NM-B aka Romex with 3 conductors + ground). This involves some skill and maybe some drywall repair. OR 2) buy a remote control for your ceiling fan. They sell them at most home improvement stores, and they install fairly easily in the motor housing of your ceiling fan. The transmitter runs off of batteries, and doesn't require special wiring to operate. Your wall switch will have to remain ON for you to operate, but the remote can handle the rest, like dimming your lights and fan speed control. Good luck!
