Hi, and welcome to JustAnswer.Are these wires in the fan or do they come from a wall switch?You should have two hot wires to control the speed unless the speed control is an electronic solid state unit or a rheostat. In that case only one wire will go to the switch. In that case it would go to the black wire and not the red.If this doesn't work please provide a picture of the switch and any other related components.Thank you.
