Wiring a ceiling fan

I am trying to hang a Casablanca ceiling fan with an intelli-touch control. The fan has a black, white and green wire. The ceiling has a black, white, green and red wire. The wall has 3 black, 3 white and a red wire. The control has a black, black w/white stripe, blue and black w/white stripe hooked together and a capped black wire. What gets hooked to what?

It must tell you more than that.

What is the wiring at the switch? Does this controller replace the switch? If not, what do you want the switch to do?

I got it working now. I had both red and black hooked at the ceiling and I only needed the red hooked up.

The black wire in the ceiling is most likely always hot. That would be typical wiring. Had you told us the wiring at the switch I would have told you that in the first place. Always provide detailed information.

I'm glad it's working.
