OK, here it is. In my master bedroom I have one, single pole, switch on my wall. This switch controls two seperate outlets in my room.
I just intalled a support in the middle of my master bedroom for a ceiling fan (via attic access). I currently have no wires running to the new ceiling fan junction box. Here is what I *want* to do.1) I want to take the two outlets, mentioned above, off of the switch. I have no need for these outlets to be controled by a switch (stinking alarm clock!)
2) I want to utilize the switch for my newly installed ceiling fan.
I have a 14/2 power feed coming into the existing switch box. One black wire and one white. I'm assuming this is a switch loop setup. If I simply connect the black wire to the white wire and remove them from the switch, my outlets stay on continuously. However, how do I set the fan up to use the switch?
I purchased 14/3 wire to run from the fan to the switch. I don't plan on using the red wire for now (that can be another project). The wires that runs from the switch to my outlets run pretty close to my new ceiling fan junction box in the attic.
The question is how do I utilize the new wire to get my ceiling fan going on the switch? In addition, how do I keep the outlets on all of the time? Any help will be greatly apprieciated.
