ceiling fan install

Trying to install a Hunter ceiling fan
https://www.hunterfan.com/ceiling-fa...52-inch-fam806

the wall switch also runs a switched outlet. The ceiling did not have a light but had an existing ceiling box with wires.
Problem is that the wire configuration in the ceiling was this:
2 blacks wire nutted together
2 whites wire nutted together
1 yellow and 1 blue wire nutted together.

Wires in the wall switch had all whites nutted together, the blacks nutted together with one then to the switch, and then a yellow wire to the switch.



I followed the directions to the T for the wiring but it doesn't work.

I did some trouble shooting and wired the black from the receiver to the yellow and blue from the ceiling and left the two blacks nutted together.

Any suggestions?

Receiver suggests a remote unit. No switch control will be needed.
Connect the remote to the black and whites. That should be unswitched power, which is what you want for a remote control.
Then connect the fan to the receiver according to the instructions.

@Joed
I connected the whites and the blacks and it still didn't work. Although when I pulled them back out the whites were not very secure.
Just leave the yellow and blue together as that runs the switched outlet?

Leave the yellow and blue as they were. You don''t need them with a fan with remote control. All you need is constant power, which should be the black and white pairs you described.
