Question about Hampton Bay 24002 Ceiling Fan
I have a Hampton Bay fan, the wiring insrtuctions indicate that I should connect green to ground, white to white and the blue (light) and black to black. This is all understandable, however, I also have a red wire in the ceiling box. It may have something to do with the fact that I have two way switches in the room. On one of the switches I have the on/off toggle as well as a variable speed switch. My question is, what does the red wire connect to?
I would pull the cover off of the Light switch and look at the color of the wire leaving the Variable speed device. I only assume the red wire is from that. I do not like to assume anything. So you must verify that a red wire leaves the Variable speed device. If it does, then i am assuming you dim the lights with this Variable device. The fan has its own built in Variable speed setup. In the case that the red wire belongs to the variable device, wire the Red to Blue(light), and Black to Black Whites to white. Green to Ground. bare wires to ground.

Usually for lighting. Check with a meter or indicator light to see if the wire receives power when the light switch is turned on. Leave disconnected and insulate with generous amounts of tape or with a twist-on connector if the fan doesn't come with lights. Otherwise, connect to the blue light switch. You can do this more safely by switching off the breaker and using an ohmmeter, but only by opening the switch
