Question about Westwind Classic Hugger Polished Brass 52" Ceiling Fan
Do NOT attempt to connect this fan to this ceiling box!
In the USA, a color code is employed to quickly alert the electrician about the voltages found in circuits. Black, red & blue insulated wires with a white colored neutral wire indicates a standard residential 120 / 240 volt system. Brown, orange and yellow wires with a gray colored neutral on the other hand, indicates a common commercial or industrial 277 / 480 volt system.
Since I don't know where you live, but it could be the USA (or other country that also observes this color scheme for system voltage identification), I urge you to contact a qualified electrician. If you insist of checking it out yourself, please exercise EXTREME caution. Accidental contact with 277 volts will burn and most likely kill in an instant.
If it is determined to in fact be a 277 / 480 volt system, the fan you selected will not be able to be connected to this circuit as it is a 120 volt fixture. Connection will result in damage, fire or worse.
I hope this helps. Please rate my reply - thank you!
