We wanted to update our ceiling fans, as they were a horrible gold/brass finish with cane blades. First we began by removing the blades from the old ceiling fan. Now, FLIP THE BREAKER and ensure no power is going to the fan.
We unscrewed the fan from the ceiling mount, and took a quick picture before disconnecting. This is EXTREMELY helpful for our house, which has some of the weirdest wiring I could imagine.
Next we screwed the ceiling assembly to the ceiling mount. One of us held it in place while the other inserted the screws.
Next, we attached the lights, the blades, and flipped the power back on. Voila!! There is light.
