ceiling fan wiring
I installed a new ceiling fan to replace a working but rickety old one. It was wired so the light worked from one switch and the fan with the other. I didn't pay attention to how it was wired and now I can't seem to figure out how it could possibly work through the switch. I have 2 black wires coming from the ceiling and 3 white (in addition to the green/copper ground wires). I am able to hook the fan up to a single white and a single black and have the fan and lights work but we have to us the pull strings because the light switch makes absolutely no difference. I can't seem to find any other combination that makes a hot connection. Has anyone got any idea how the old fan was wired? It was working through the switch.
