Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your electrical question.

1) Please provide me with the model number of the fan switch.

2) I also need a picture of the wall switch box so I can see the wire arrangement that you have in place.

3) How many and what are the wire colors at the ceiling box? Do not include the fan wires.

4) How many and the wire colors from the fan/light kit wiring harness?

5) Do you have either a 2 wire lead AC voltage tester (a contact type) or a multi-meter available?

Haven't heard back from you. Therefore I will opt out of the question and place it back to the open board.

No need to reply back to me, you will be notified once another expert picks up the question.
