Fan ground to ground, fan white to white.

Fan black and blue to red if you want the switch to turn on fan and light.

Fan black to red , fan blue to black if the switch controls fan and pull chain for light.

Fan blue to red, fan black to black if switch controls light and pull chain controls fan.
