Bob, You will get some nonsensical responses to your post, just refuse them or rate them TFT and IA when appropriate.

We do have experts in this area if you will be patient enough for them to discover you post. And, actually, you could also post in the Free Forum as well.

From my experience which isn't current but years old. Black goes on L, as you probably guessed. Then I would use yellow on 1, orange on 2 and purple on 3.

If your fan doesn't start on highest speed, cycle through tugs until you get high speed and then note how many tugs to get the slowest speed. This then will tell you which wires are fast and slowest. Lable those and reposition them on the switch. As you probably know, the highest speed should be on first pull from the off position.

    1. ceiling fan wires colored
      yellow,purple,black and orange. Replacement switch has markings
      L,1,2,3, and is a chain pull type. help with proper connection

    2. The
      colors of the wires needs to be noted before disassembly. One way to do
      this is to take pictures. Another way is to write it down, any colors
      and where those wires go, in your particular fan, similar to how I
      showed above with my fan here and here.

      Link to return to article.

      The only other way that I’m aware of to figure the puzzle out is to
      backtrace the colored wires to their components, this presumes you have
      an accurate wiring diagram and know how to read it, upon which the
      proper connection point should then become obvious. In the absence of a
      wiring diagram or schematic, then one can be drawn by backtracing all
      the wires to all their components. This is quite time consuming, but
      I’d guess it can be done.

      link in my prior post claimed that manufacturers are under no
      obligations to keep a standardized color coding for their internal
      wiring, that they pretty much use what wire they have on hand. I don’t
      know if it was an accurate statement, or not. They have additional
      suggestions for what to do when you’re not sure what wire goes where,
      and I’d guess their method would work, I used a variation of it myself
      years ago with the forgotten switch replacement described above.

      In any case, it’s important to always note where wires go BEFORE
      disassembly and record that information, then you can refer to that
      record during reassembly.

      Good luck, and don’t forget the disclaimer!

I replaced the 3 speed fan switch on my Hunter 21834 ceiling fan/light. The fan only has 1 speed (fast). What did I do wrong? I tagged each wire to match up, but now only one speed.

What was the original reason why you changed the switch? Sounds like you got the hot wire and high speed wire swapped. The hot wire coming from the upper part of the fan should go to 'L' and then the three other wires going down to the little black boxes for the speeds should go to the corresponding 1,2,3 on the switch.

Hello, I replaced a light fixture on my existing Emerson ceiling fan. The light worked right away but the blades didn't turn. I could hear power going to the motor so I went back into the switch cup and...

Signs of a bad capacitor in a ceiling fan include:

  • Fan runs slowly or not at all on all speeds
  • Fan will not start but will spin if started by hand
  • Certain speeds are slow or do not work
  • The motor hums and turns freely by hand but will not spin

    The capacitor is usually a black box inside the switch housing of the fan. If this box appears burnt or melted in any way, that is also the sign of a bad capacitor and it should be replaced.

    have a good day !!

    It's most likely the receiver for the remote (transmitter) -- it's located under the cover at the top of the fan -- will need replacing.
