Hi, I'm Mike G and I'll be assisting you. Your conclusion is applicable but I suggest lookin in the switch box to see where the red wire is. You may have the means of separating the fan functions by adding a separate switch or fan control. Let me know if you're going to check it out.
Very good. Standing by.
What about the black from the same cable?
If both black and red are on their own switches, you have separate functions. Connect the fan as follows.
Black fan to black wire
White fan to white wires
Blue fan to red wire
Green fan to copper ground wires.
Are both black and red unconnected in the ceiling box. On the mentioned switch are there any other wires connected?.
No picture. Are both red and black wires part of the same cable or is the black from another cable? The reason I'm asking is because both are unconnected at the ceiling.
If on the same switch you can wire it 2 ways. If you want the switch to power both the fan and light together. Connect the loose black to the other blacks. Connect the black and blue fan wires to the red house wire. White fan to all the whites.
You can also connect the fan black and loose black to the other blavks, whites together and the fan blue to the red. This will put the light on the switch and the fan will work from the pullchain.
Very good, you're welcome.
