Re: Wiring for Cieling Fan
You may also need to replace the switch box with a bigger box because of the wire count.
You said you were an auto tech in a previous life. If you look at the Black (hot) wire like the red hot wire to the positive post of a battery and the white neutral wire as the frame of the auto which is the return to the negative side of the battery it may help you visualize the circuit better.The ground or bare wire in the AC circuit is not present in the DC circuits of an auto.
