Question about Hunter 20516 The Savoy® White Ceiling Fan
I have a Hunter Fan #23665-100 that has 3 speeds but does not have a high speed at all. When in high, the fan spins at medium, when medium spins medium, low spins low. Hunter tech center says switch needs replacement but I took the switch apart and found no problem with the contacts. Please advise!
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.
