Answer

Gary,

    Where your old light came down, there should be a black wire that went to the light that would be by it self,  and there should be a single white or there may be 2 or 3 whites twisted together.
          You would take the fan wires put the white to the white or whites that are twisted in the ceiling box , then take the black from fan and there should be one marked light or it may be black with white stripes or it could be blue either way the other 2 wires go to the black in the ceiling box, any problems follow up with me ! Always turn off the power!
                                           Thank you!
