SOURCE: My fan would run only

Hi,

First, check to see that the fan blades turn freely by hand and coast after being spun. If rotation is in any way stiff, this is a sign of dirty, dry, or gummed bearings, which can slow the motor. Sometimes the bearings can become tight and binding which can also be an issue.

Second, does the fan wobble at all? If for any reason the blade pitch is steeper on one or more blades than the motor is designed for, this will slow the motor. This can often be the cause of warping, or a blade being knocked off balance. This will also cause the fan to wobble or shake. See the section on balancing. You can bend the blades to a shallower pitch if they appear to be too steep, but be extremely careful as blade brackets can break easily.

Most ceiling fans made in recent years use permanent split capacitor motors, as they are efficient and reliable. However with age capacitors can drift in value. If the blades turn freely and are balanced, the cause of a fan running slowly is almost always a bad capacitor. The capacitor is a small black box or silver cannister with two or more wires attached, and is located inside the switch housing, motor housing, or inside a bell on top of the motor. It should be replaced with a capacitor of equal value, they are marked i.e. 6uf, 4uf, etc. Some fans have capacitors with two or more values, they should be replaced with the equivalent of those values by one or more capacitors.

SOURCE: Where can I find a replacement switch. Zing Ear

I have a Hunter Fan I bought in 2007 with the Zing Ear ZE-268S6 with the . Lowes sells a Zing Ear that works on my 3 speed fan. The chain is yellow so it will show above the light fixture. This is for a 4 wire. The color wires on the switch were black, green, gray and brown. You have the four markings L 1 2 3 so write down where each color wire attaches before you disconnect the old. All speeds work

3-speed fan switch broke on Hunter model 28072, cat. 300 fan. Found replacement switch at Lowes, but wiring colors are completely different from manual. What color wires go into L, 1, 2, 3 positions...


My Hunter fan uses a Zing-Ear ZE-268S6 switch. This is NOT a standard switch! It connects L to 2 AND 3 for medium speed. It is best to order the exact switch if possible. Hunter wants to sell you the entire bottom assembly (probably expensive). I found the exact switch online at:

http://www.kenselectronics.com/lists/switches.htm#Pull%20chain

for $6.80 plus $4.95 shipping. I bought an extra which didn't increase the shipping - worked great. Hunter ZE-268S6 ceiling fan connection colors: L=black; 3=green; 1=grey; 2=brown. If you need a different switch on their page, just click the Edit menu, then Find, type your part number in the box, and click Next.

Does anyone have an exact cross-reference for a Sabre PC-18 4-position, 3-speed ceiling fan switch? You insert 4 wires in it for H-M-L-OFF operation. It is for an Emerson Legend Series ceiling fan. ...


I disassembled the switch and determined that a Switchco catalog #A01 which is a Zing Ear #ZE-208S would solve the problem. The switch required must support OFF => ON L+1 => ON L+2 => ON L+3. The Home Depot switch appears to have contacts configured similar to Switchco catalog #A09. I replaced the Sabre PC-18 with the Switchco A01 model and it works fine now.
