QUESTION: Ceiling fixture has 3 wires: black, white, and red.
Is black "hot", white "neutral", and red "ground"?
Thanks.

Red should never be ground. Ground is Green or bare (in US)

Also, if the system is wired for a ceiling fan, then white is neutral, black is for the fan/light, and the red is for the light/fan, as you choose. Is there an extra switch on the wall that doesn't seem to be doing anything? Ground will be green or bare (most likely).
