I have a Hampton Bay indoor/outdoor ceiling fan with 3 speed fan switch WU Pin LJY280A, E198635. It is a L-3-1-2 (ccw) switch with purple, grey, black and brown wires. The wiring is different than most on web. The L is not black, 2 is black. My wiring for the switch is L-Purple, 3-Grey, 1-Brown, 2-Black.
Found schematic on web that I think is correct:
Hi-L,1 4uF,
Med.-L,2,3 10uF & 4uF,
Low-L,3 5uF & 4uF.
I hope this helps someone.

How do you open a wu pin switch. the chain broke & went inside switch

My chain was broken about 1.5 - 2 centimeters inside the wu pin. I took a chain connector (with some chain hanging off one end) and fed it into the hole, trying to connect it to the broken chain. After a couple of tries I managed to get the end of the broken chain inside the wu pin to connect to the chain connector by gently pulling down once it was somewhat inside the chain connector. I hope this works for you. I was so glad I didn't have to resort to cutting any wire or making a trip to a home improvement store!

Thermo fan will not work on 1996 klx 650, when engine is running or hot, there is a wire to the sensor and another which is broken, beside it. Should the broken wire be connected to something? If so, what?...

Let's figure this out. Broken or otherwise disconnected wires usually cause an open circuit preventing adequate current to a componant. Two wire switches act as light switches do. they either close or open a circuit.In this case, the warning lamp or fan relay is ativated when the temp rises. Cold, the circuit is open/ broken preventing any controlled componant from activating.
First check for any power/voltageat the disconnected wire and the connected wire. Which ever wire that is powered is the supply wire. The one without is your controlled componant wire. Touch the two wires together, bypassing the switch. The fan should come on and turn off when disconnected again. Ignition switch needs to be on.Because of the load the fan pulls, a relay is between the fan and switch.
The switch closes powering the relay, then relay close contacts closing a secondary circuit which in turn permits power to the fan. The fan circuit is powered by the battery and controlled only by the relay.
Yuup, two circuits. Switching and fan drive circuits. Yes, Hook the wire back onto the switch after testing as outlined here. Good Luck and remember to always verify power (fusec ondition). _Ned_

Switch broken

May not be identical but an appliance store or hardware store should be able to assist you with that. Home depot or Lowes as well. Take old one with you if you can.

ANy electric store will have different switches (lowes and home depot do too) just make sure you bring the old one with you. The colors of the wires shouldn't make too much of a difference just the amount
