Hello gingerbread.  Welcome to the Community!


Here is a diagram of typical remote controlled ceiling fan wiring.

From the ceiling box to the receiver in the fan you only need a black, always on power, a white neutral and a green or bare wire ground.  The red wire in your ceiling box is likely from a light switch that has not been used since the first fan was installed.  The black-and-white, (striped?), wire I do not understand.  Below the receiver you will see a variety of colored wires, some yours may have and some not.  The receiver that came with your fan should have the right number and color of wires to match the fan connections.


Is this what you are looking for?
