How many total wires do you have coming out of the ceiling and what colors?
You should have 1 each, black red white, and bare ground
Black, white, red, and green, but my house is to old to have a ground.
if you have a green coming out of the ceiling, that is your ground
The power, the black and white were already running down to the switch and I ran a 14/3 from the switch up to the fan.
Ok. So you will cap off the red coming out of the ceiling. It will be unused
the black and white are the power into the remote unit
coming out of the remote unit, the white goes to the white on the fan
the one marked "to light" goes to the black on the fan with a stripe
the one marked "to fan" goes to the solid black on the fan
and black to black
ok, sounds good.
