SOURCE: 3 speed ceiling fan

I could not understand that "all the three positions are on high speed and off" ? How can be it possible that all the (three) positions give high speed and at the same time no speed (off)? Please explain.
 What I feel that the speed controller be in series with the fan. "in series" mean that the wire should come from phase or line, go to the speed controller , then go to the fan, then finally go to the neutral point. This completes the circuit.
 I will be happy to know more about this if it could not solve your problem.

I googled Hampton Bay Manufacturing and this is what I found:

Hampton Bay fans are manufactured by "King of Fans Manufacturing, FL". The contact number for them is 800-330-3267. ...
Maybe they can supply you with a wiring diagram.

Turn off fan, then check to see that all of the blade mounting screws are tight. (check blade to blade arm and blade arm to fan body screws/mounting mechs.) If none are loose, you can purchase a blade balancing kit from most hardware stores, including Home Depot and Lowes. Let us know if this helps or the cure you come up with.

SOURCE: Fan speed switch is broken.

Home depot sells replacement switches.  First take a look at what you need in your fan.  By the exact or similar speed switch.  Then remove noting placement of wires and put new switch in.  If your down to one speed that is the capacitor.  Call King of Fans and they will send you one free.  This seems to be a common problem.  This is the second time I have replaced this capacitor.

I have 2 Hunter ceiling fans and the wall switch has 2 knobs which you push to click on or off.......after you click on...you can turn the knob and increase or decrease the fan speed. You can click on both...


Hello .. you should be able to find a replacement for your fan control at any building supply store, a home depot type store. Look or ask for a variable speed fan control. This is slightly different from a normal liight dimmer . You might also look for a replacement knob before replacing the whole switch, or matbe getting a replacement just to replace the knob ..

I saved this text I found when I was researching this a while ago.
Let us know how you do.

Wiring a three speed fan switch
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My daughter called me the other day and said Dad the ceiling fan in the kitchen is not working only the light works. I went over and removed the three screws that hold the light and pull chain for the fan down and found that the fan control switch had snapped open and all 4 wires had popped out. The snap clips on each side of the switch had broken off. I went down to Home Depot in the ceiling department and found the switch I was looking for. It said for a four wire ceiling fan. OK, know lets put it back together. First of all if you look at the new switch you should see four holds were the wires will be pushed into. The black wire in the fan is the hot or load wire, this wire is hot whenever the wall switch to the fan is turned on. Put this wire in the hole that is marked “L” this stands for load. Now with this switch in the off position the fan will not work until you pull the chain. The other three holes are marked #1, #2 and #3. On most fans #1 is usually high speed. # 2 medium and #3 low speed. What you now have to determine is what wires are high medium and low. The easiest way to do this is before you put any of the wires back into the new switch is to FIRST MAKE SURE NO POWER IS GOING TO THE FAN. Then simply take one of the colored wires at a time and twist it together with the black hot wire.
Turn the power back on to the fan and knot the fans speed. Do this with all three wires one at a time until you can determine which wire is high speed. Note the color of the wire and mark it down on paper.(Example; blue wire high speed.) Do this with the other two wires to determine there speed. Once you have the speed of each wire you can reassemble the new switch.
Black wire (Load) goes in hole marked L. High speed wire goes in hole marked # 1. Medium speed goes in hole marked #2 and low speed goes in hole # 3. MAKE SURE THE POWER TO THE FAN IS TURNED OFF WHILE YOU ASSEMBLE THE NEW SWITCH.
For those of you that have all these wired hooked up right and still the fan won't work I would then look for an open neutral wire. It should be a white wire. Check to see if all the wires are securly attached.
Good luck. One more word of advice. If you're not sure on what you are doing when it comes to electrical wiring then please do not attempt to do this or any other electrial work yourself. Call a licensed electrian. Any mistakes on your part could void your home owners insurance in case of a fire.

3 speed Hunter Fan only has 2 speeds


Assuming that the unit was wired properly from the factory and without being able to look at the switch I would have to agree that the switch is bad. The different speeds are obtained by having a different winding for each speed. If the unit was wired properly at the factory and never had three different speeds then the switch is not rotating between all the contacts. The switch should only be a couple of dollars and would certainly be a cheap solution to try. You can check the existing switch by removing it from the circuit completely and checking the continuity with a DMM from the input to each output as you switch it. Continuity should move from one to two to three. If not the switch is bad. If the switch checks out OK then you have a bad winding in the fan and probably need a new unit. Good luck.
