Wiring Replacement Fan (with pictures)

I'm replacing an old Hunter fan that did not have a light kit attached to it with a Casablanca (model 59431) fan. The remote controls are built into the wall plate. The new fan does have a light kit. The old wall control only has a black and white wire connected to it. (see picture) I've also attached a picture from the instructions. I do not know how to connect the new wall plate. Any help would be appreciated. --- Thanks

It would appear you have some type of a switch loop there. Remove the single pole light switch and connect the black wires to the new fan control hot/line and the white wire to load/fan. Be sure the new fan control is connected to ground when testing it.

Sorry.... I inadvertently lost your fan wiring diagram.

If the switch loop is wired correctly the white will be the LINE IN. Try that option first.

Thanks for the quick response. As I started to implement the suggestion, I saw that the "white" wire was really black coming out of the wall. It was just hit with paint when the house was being built. Both screws appear to be the same color. The "fake white" wire is coming straight out of the wall, whereas the other black wire is coming from the adjacent switch. Based on this scenario, does the "fake white" wire still connect to the FAN OUT. I've reattached the instructions.

Thanks

The black attached to the other switch is the power in.
