5 wire fan to 4 wire house power

Hi all I have a ceiling fan with one wall switch and a remote for the fan. There is five wires coming out of fan and four wires coming out of house power. On the fan there are two separate lights with no power cord everything runs on remote. How do I connect?

Welcome to the forums.

Grounds are understood to be connected but are not counted in wiring counts.

Red, black and white from the house.
Blue, black, possibly two whites from fan.

The wiring from the house would indicate two switched lines...... red and black. Typically red is switched and black is always live. A meter would be needed to confirm.

From the very limited information you left.......
The two whites from the fan go to the white from the house.
The black from the fan goes to the black of the house.
The blue from the fan goes to the red of the house.

If these colors don't match what you have...... we'll need make and model of your fan.
What colors come out of the house ?
What color wires are on the one switch ?
