We bought a new fan and found out that the reciever wiring were cut. We got a new one from the company. After hooking up the eight wire plug and the fan worked but not the light. After hooking up the blue wire from the reciever to black in the ceiling and white from reciever to white in the ceiling and it blew up. We just got a new reciever. Can you help us do it right this time?

I have not been able to find a large picture of this fan, but I will tell you what I have run into in the past.
On some of the fans there are small clips around the grill where the front and back pieces come together. It would be a case of opening these clips and sliding either the front of back grill off. Reverse the process when putting it back together.
On others I have found small plastic wire ties holding the two grills together, one at the screw locations where the legs hook onto the fan. These need to be cut with scissors or wire cutters and replaced with new ones when putting the fan back together.
New wire ties can be purchased at Home Depot or Radio Shack.
Please let me know how you make out and I will keep looking into this.
I think you have the power wire mixed up. Your power supply to the switch should be black. And in most cases goes the the L-1 labeled on the switch. If you have trouble finding the power just plug the wires in and use a simple light or voltage tester. Once you have the power wire just touch each wire 1 at a time and you can tell the speeds. Once you have the speeds hook them up to low being 1 med.2 high 3. Then your done
We'll need more info on this one. Usually in the box there are 2 or three wires 1 white for the neutral 1 black for power and some times a third for fan/light power depending on how you want to run the outlet will depend on how to hook it up
Yes...just keep the four wires wrapped as two and then hook up as a two wire connection...
The two wires wrapped together just makes it work better if the wires are a bit too light...
The two wires wrapped together will function as one wire...
did you check the batteries in the remote? (gotta ask sorry). If that isn't the obvious fix, the reciever in the fan base could be out. Hopefully this is a warrenty fix but if not, you can pick up a whole new remote system from Home Depot or Lowes for about 30.00 and are as easy to hook up as the fan itself.
You can try the universal receiver. The white, black, and green wires are the house wires. The receiver must match to these on one side. The wires on the other side go to the fan/lights. It is possible that one of these has come loose. If you try the universal, make sure the dip switches are in the same positions on both.
Take the fan down, and remove the receiver completely, from house wires and fan. (Make sure the breaker is off first!) Then wire the fan directly to the house wires. The blue wire on the fan is for lights. Wire it with the black wire in the same wire nut.
I'm assuming you have a wall switch that powers the wires coming from the ceiling.
By the way, I have never seen anyone control two fans with lights with one receiver. Usually each fan has its on.
I have found in the past that when the splice caps were twisted onto the wires that they slip to the insulated part of the wire and looks as though it is connected actually is not. If you can get to the fan wires at the J-Box or ceiling fixture take the connection to the ceiling wires off and test the wires to the fan with an ohm meter to see if you have resistence reading. If you do not have a ohm meter take an extension cord and cut the female portion off and splice the wires to the fan wires. Make sure the cord will not hit the blades and plug the other end into a receptecale. If fan does not run then it is the motor wiring. Assuming you do not have a light kit since it was not mentioned. If you do and the lights come on then the fan wire was probably never hooked to that point.
