I do not have a voltage tester
ok, I will be offline for a while.
not sure if this will help or not, but I have a voltage "detector" and the circut breaker for this line is a 20amp 120volt. Does this help or do i need to purchase a voltage tester?
there are two wires in the attic, 1 black and 1 white. The black wire registers on my voltage detector and the white does not. When i removed the old fixture (light only) it was wired black to black and white to white.
I will replace the wire to accomodate the 20amp circuit. Has for originating the wire to the fan/light I believe it has to come from the attic since that is where the power comes in from is that correct?
I just want to confirm making sure I understand everything.
1. connect the white from switch box to black in attic. Marking white wire to indicate its hot.
2. The white wire in attic will connect to the white wires of the fan/light
3. The black and red wires from the switch box will connect to the blue and black wires of the fan/light.
Is this correct?
Thank you so much for your excellent service in helping me with this!
