Power for Switch

I am currently adding a ceiling fan to a room with a two-line switch. There is just two wires going to the switch box. Within the box for the fan, however there are four lines (eight wires plus ground) that enter (two being the switch). I have power to all of the other lines within the fan box (which are outlets), however no power to the switch. I believe that if I had the wrong line, it would kick the breaker (white/black combo), however maybe I am wrong in this thought. Does anyone have any thoughts as to why I cannot seem to get the switch to work? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

The question is alittle vague to answer. What are you trying to do

Install a switch

Install a fan

Install both


Is this a new installation or was there already something there that you are replacing. answer these questions and you will be on your way to getting the job done.

I am replacing a light with a ceiling fan. The wires that are coming into the box where the ceiling fan is to be installed include wires for the switch on the wall. The ceiling fan is not currently up, since I cannot seem to get any power to the switch. I am looking to see if anyone can help regarding how I can get power in the box to the switch. I have been trying everything to almost no avail. Sorry for the confusion.

Was this switch always there and did it work before or did you add it for the fan? There should have been only two wires(not counting any bare wires for grounding) on the old fixture that you removed if you took apart any more than this that may be the problem
