Like jsc said they are the main reasons it would not be working. When you cut the wires from the old fan did you cut them one at a time or did you cut them all at the same time?

When you connected the new fan, how did you connect the two ends of the wire? A crimped connection insulated with standard insulation tape is always the best.
