I just replaced a ceiling light, which could be operated from a wall switch, with a ceiling fan/light.
When I disconnected the ceiling light, I unhooked white from white and black from black. A red source wire was capped with a wire nut.
I wired the ceiling fan/light -- black/blue(for the light) to black, white to white, and left the red source wire capped.
The only way I can turn the fan and light off and on is with chain switches, not the wall switch.
I did the same thing with another ceiling fan/light with no problem -- I kept wall switch control.
Thanks for the help.
