The black and the red wires (from the ceiling) are connected to each other and capped. I left them alone. What I discovered when removing the first fan is, two white wires from ceiling connected to white from fan, and a blue wire connected to a black wire from the fan (no blue from first fan). The new fan has blue and black wires. might you have a suggestion?
Two more bits of information that I should have included; 1) house is 102 years old, and 2) fixture is on a single switch.
Thank you, Mike. What then should I do with the blue wire from the ceiling?
I've done that. I turned the power back on, and I hear a hum, but the motor does not move.
No tester. Lights work.
It is fresh out of the box, but has been waiting a while to be installed.
Thank you for the assistance. While I had originally completed the work correctly, your expertise was greatly appreciated as you had validated the concern that the fan was not working, for which I had been entirely unsure.
