Hi, I'm Mike and I'll be glad to assist you. The universal receiver is installed in the canopy and there will be a black, white, blue and green wires. You are evidently in the fan itself having those colors. If your fan has only a black, white and green in the canopy, your receiver has to be a factory match and a universal won't work.
