I am working on ceiling fan--- one that has a control box below the fan motor and and light fixture below the control box. Most of the wiring in the control box is for the fan motor. The control box contains a fan reversing switch, a speed control switch and a black box that looks like a capacitor starter.
There are 4 wires coming off the motor winding, red, pink, yellow and gray. The red, pink and yellow wires hook into other wires in the control box. Unfortunately the gray wire came loose from somewhere as I was pulling the light fixture off the bottom and I did not see where it came from.
Do you have any idea where the gray wire connects into? A ground? something else?
