I need to know how to connect wires for ceiling fan Hampton Bay model #crc 552 nm (ch) pb Coming from my ceiling are black/white/red wires Fan has blue/white/black wires. Fan won't work but, I want to have...

if you have a single switch for the outlet (I mean no separate switch for the fan) then on your fan you couple the blue and black wire and couple it to the black out of your outlet. The white (hot lead) to the white on your fan.
The red wire out of your house outlet may be for another control, but you should also ground the fan.
Use an electrical twist CAP for the red wire.
This configuration will turn everything on the fan and lights and allow you to use the pull cords to control the features.
NEVER LEAVE EXPOSED WIRES anywhere. Even if the insulation does not expose the wire, cap it.
(ps, I have this fan, and installed. It is heavy so make sure you have good support. After installation, make sure you balance the blades.)
good luck.

Trying to connect a ceiling fan light kit. I connected the blue wire from the fan kit to the black wire in the light kit and then connected the white wire from the fan kit to the white wire in the light...

Those connections sound OK ,, now you have to go to the canopy and see if all the wires for the fan/light are connected to a house wire. If there are two switches , then the blue fan wire would connect to the red wire .. it may be capped off in the ceiling. If there is only one control switch , then the blue wire from the fan will connect to the same ceiling wire as the black fan wire does.

I am trying to install a new wireless hampton bay in a hunter

Your best bet with this would be to call and talk to an electrician over the phone, or contact Hampton Bay. We are seriously liable if we tell you one thing and it turns out to be something else.

Bulbs burning out in Hampton Bay ceiling fan

I would suggest getting an electrician to check the current running through the wiring. I had installed a similar fan in my grandmother's house a couple of years ago and had the same problem. After a couple of months of constantly changing bulbs, I brought in an electrician to check the current and found that there was a short in the wire which kept causing just enough of a current surge to blow the bulbs.

You must use the switch on the fan itself.

Green and copper are the ground wires and I believe you can connect both these to the green wire from the fan (I only have the copper wire in the actual ceiling box). Black and Red can be treated as both black and both can be connected to the black wire from the fan (this is what I did in all my fans and it worked). White is the neutral wire and can be connected to the white wire from the fan (this is what I did in all my fans and it worked).

My ceiling box has the copper, red, black, and white wires. The ceiling plate for the fan I bought had a green wire. I connected the green wire from the ceiling plate and the copper wire from the ceiling box to the green wire from the fan.

Wiring ceiling fans to wall switch

Hi Bigelow,

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.

Installing ceiling fan with two switches AND a remote

in your ceiling box should be three wires. a red goes to the three way switches, a black goes to the hot and the white is the neutral. the fan wires are black, blue and white. since you have a remote, connect the [fan] blue & black together with the [line] black. connect all white wires together. the remote will now ramp up your lights from off to full on and the fan remote will let you choose lo med high and off. just tape up the red wire in the box.
