Trying to hook up ceiling fan
and light to two switches
on the outlet
. One switch has a black and red going up to the junction box
. The other switch is connected via black to the first switch and then has a yellow going up to junction box. So I have black, red, white, and yellow coming out. The fan has black, blue, red, and green. I know black to black and white to white, and red to the blue, but not sure that yellow is a ground wire as it is attached to the toggle switch.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?
Customer: About an hour.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: The home is early 90s wiring
, so I don't think those yellow wires are ground wires.
JA: How old is the system in question? And have you consulted an electrician yet?
Customer: The system is about 25 years old. Have not consulted an electrician yet. Just ran into this issue.
