Ceiling fan--fixed the light, now the fan won't run
Has this happened to anyone?
I have a Hampton Bay (Home Depot's brand) ceiling fan with light kit. The light switch was going bad, so I replaced it. No problem, just took the old switch out, matched up the wires in the same way, etc., etc. The light works great.
But, now the fan blades don't turn. I didn't touch the wires for the fan switch, other than to move them out of the way. They all seem to be joined just fine with plastic connectors, no loose wires. Obviously, power is getting to the unit since the lights work.
What could possibly have gone wrong?? Should I try replacing the fan switch--or just bite the bullet and call an electrician?
