Hello, my name is***** me try and assist you with your issue. Could you tell me more about what you are doing? Make and model of what you are installing? What existing wiring do you have? etc..
What controls the fan?
So the dimmer would control the speed of the fan?
OK, and the switch is simply on/off?
OK. So do you have the light installed? Is it just a connector that plugs into the fan?
OK, that looks good. So what happens when you turn on the switch?
How about if you slide the dimmer all the way up
Ok. You'll have to open up that switch box and see whats inside for wiring
Do you know what circuit the fan in on? Can you turn off the breaker? It will make it safe for you. We need to see if there is another wire we can switch power to that runs up to the ceiling box, to power the light
There is going to be another wire in the fan itself that needs to be connected in the ceiling box that powers the light.
Yes you would have to remove the fan to get access to that wiring, it is possible it's already connected in the ceiling but not connected in the switch box
Yeah, it's somewhere to start, and the easiest to get at
Yes, you can reply to this chat tomorrow.
