Ive done a few cieling fans in my time. So i had one laying in my
garage, Dusted it, painted it, decided to put it up. Now heres where i
need help. I was going to replace the existing light fixture with the
fan.(of course right)... 1.) No lightswitch wired to existing fixture.
To turn on light i had to climb onto a table every time. 2.)Theres two,
two outlet conduit boxes on each side of the garage. 3.) Stapled to the
exterior of the drywall, The sheathed wires run up the wall. Across the
cieling framing. And meet together at the light fixture. Each one
consists of 1 black wire,1 white wire, And 1 plain copper. 4.) On top
of that theres two metal tubes entering the garage from the front and
rear consisting of more wires. The two metal tubes connect to the light
fixture conduit. Exposing a white wire completely sheathed except about
an inch, where it bends almost like it was connected to something. A
red wire. And a yellow. So I screwed something up.. The fan didnt work.
I decided to shut down the shop for the night. Disconnected all my
wiring that i did to the fan, to start again in the mornin. Capped all
wires. Flipped the breaker back on and now my back porch light doesnt
work! My staircase hallway leading to the basement light doesnt work..
My downstairs office has no power.... WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON
HERE!!!!!!! A simple installation goes haywire..... Please help with
any kind of insight. Damn cieling fans...
