Thanks for the question.

Which contacts are you getting 120 volts from, and please send me the first three numbers of the model number.

Customer: replied 7 years ago.

first 3 digits of model # XXXXX 960


The fan model# XXXXX

custo=mer part # XXXXX


The orange and black wires that I got the 120 from come from a plug behind the fan. The two contacts on the fan motor register zero ( these are both green, as Iook at it again these are probally both ground wires)
