Ceiling Fan Wiring

Hi. I'm trying to install a new ceiling fan and am having trouble identifying which wires to connect. The ceiling fan only has a blue and white wire The wires from the ceiling are red, white, black and ground. There were 2 separate wall switches for the light and fan on the previous ceiling fan. Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the forums.

There should be three at the fan..... white, blue and black.
Could one be missing or hidden ?
Does the new fan have a light ?

The blue wire on the fan will be for the light. As already stated there should be a black wire that will be for the fan. The white is common to both the fan and the light.
