Ceiling Fan Wiring Connection


Need help on wiring connection on my ceiling fan. I have 4 wires coming out of my ceiling box, White-Black-Red-Green and Bare Copper Wire. My ceiling fan has White-Black-Blue and Green. I have connected Black/Black, White/White, Green/Green/Bare copper wire and lastly Red/Blue wire connection. Lighting from the ceiling fan works but nothing the fan motor. Could somebody tell me if I did the right connection. Thanks.

Welcome to the forums! Are you sure sure the green wire comes from the cable from the ceiling, or is it connected to the metal box? Normally there would only be a black, red, white and bare wire. Check your switch location and let us know how the wiring is attached at that point. It is possible one of the wires is capped off and is not used. Remove the power before you pull the switch from the box.
