Replaced ceiling fan trips breaker

Iíve replaced a ceiling fan. Wires are connected black to black, white to white, green to green and ground wire and since new fan is without light, red was left alone (not covered). Old fan worked fine. New fan trips breaker when wall switch is turned on.
thanks in advance for thoughts.

You have a wire not correctly connected. Make sure you have the red capped off.

What wires do you have at the switch box? Is there one switch or two? Is there only one cable in the ceiling box?
