The fan is installed correctly (professionally). Since the remote went out, and it isn't the battery, we bought the universal remote. I am wondering if my husband thought the remote was in the fan in the wrong place. He took it apart above the lights and below the blades. The universal remote says it is in the upper part of the fan, near the ceiling.
Fan--black, white. Pink, red, white, yellow, grey and another black. 8 wires
Remote--black, white. Red, blue, white. 5 wires.
Outside of the obvious, which ones go with what?
The new universal remote wire colors--balck, white. Red, white and blue. I think he is in the light kit.
My husband insists that the light kit is where the remote connection is. He hasn't taken that part off the ceiling fan yet.
Are there only 5 wires in the remote location and maybe 8 in the ceiling kit?
Yes, the ceiling fan came with a factory remote when it was initially installed.
