Fan

Connect the new fan and light the same way as the old fan and light.

i did that first and it didn't work. that connection was blue to black, black to red white to white green to green;so i switched to new configuration which made the fan operable from the other wall switch but no light. both configurations allow the fan to operate but not the light.

Check for continuity from the white at the top of the fan to the neutral side of the light plug then check for continuity from the blue wire at the top to the hot side of the light plug.

Dumb question: Did you turn on the light with the pull chain first before trying the wall switch?

Do you have just plain switches or some sort of control?
