...preferably from an electrician with eyebrows. The girlfriend needed to put a new switch in her ceiling fan. I don't know what I did to deserve her but I'm not asking questions and I don't like to say no. Anyway, I took the fan down and managed to replace the switch. Evidently, this happens a lot as they knew exactly what I needed. The GF isn't a small woman and she had ripped the pull chain out of the switch. Anyway, I got the new switch in and wired it exactly like the old one. Now, I can't get the light or fan to turn on. On the house side, there is the normal white, black and ground wire. On the fan there are matching wires plus a blue one. Anybody know where the blue wire goes? I thought it was simple but I'm not an electrician. Snakes and spiders don't bother me if I know they're there. I'm not particularly afraid of heights. Give me something to hold onto and I'm good. I got hit with 220 as a kid and ever since then, I really don't like electricity. Yes, the breaker has been checked and isn't tripped.
