Hi somewhere along the line the wire probably went to a junction box and the white was swapped out for the red ............you need a tester to find out what wire is hot for your dual switch to operate (one for the fan one for the light) .................just wondering did you run a new wire the same way ............why didn't you hook it up the same if there was a light/fan there before?
so what you did was hook it up the same way on the switch and just ran it to a new locale ...........but does the feed come in at the switch gang box or the ceiling/fan box?
okay it is a straight hook up then ...........neutral should be directly from feed to the light ...........black to black from one switch and red to red from the other
yes you got it
you blew out a switch ?
I am glad that worked out for you and you are up and running
