installation of new ceiling fan

I have a new fan I am installing. The wires coming out of the ceiling fan motor are green ground, black supply, white neutral, blue light. Coming out of box in ceiling 2 white wires, 2 black wires. There is a switch. How do I wire this together? Let me know if any other questions that would help figure this out

Your question can't be answered with out telling us how the other half of the circuit is wired. What is the wiring at the switch?

  • The white of the non hot cable (switch loop cable) goes to the black of the hot cable.
  • The black of the non hot cable (switch loop cable) goes to he blue and black of the fan.
  • The white of the hot cable goes to the white of the fan.
Notes: the white of The non hot cable (switch loop cable) must be remarked black or red or any color but gray or green on both ends. This can be done with colored tape or felt tip markers. All grounds connected together and pigtailed to the box if metal. Box must be fan rated.

Is the ceiling box a ceiling fan rated box? It probably isn't and will need to be replaced. When you took down the old light fixture, you not only disconnected it, but you took other connections in the ceiling box apart, why did you do that?
