Re: ceiling fan/light not working
Based on your description ---- power from the panel ----- a hot ( black ) and neutral ( white ) ---- comes into the wall switch box.
The black wire would be attached to the bottom screw terminal of the wall switch ---- the white wire would be connected to another white wire ?
The top screw terminal of the switch would have another black wire attached.
These black and white wires would be the cable feed to the ceiling box.
If there is no power between the black and white wires in the ceiling box then the issue could be at the wall switch box.
Either the switch is faulty or a common thing could be the connection under the wire nut for the splice of the white wires ( neutral ).
Hope this helps.
