Question about Oasis Hunter 54' Ceiling Fan
Cant remember where the wires go have black,orange,purple,and yellow switch broke inside of housing between fan motor and light cover.
SOURCE: I have the same problem
The fans have a switch on the motor that controls fan direction that sometimes is not clearly off or on when shipped new. Wobble this switch back and forth to a positive position. This task can be especially difficult if the fan is an outdoor model with the switch protected by a rubber boot.

This is fairly simple.
Assuming you have a black brick capacitor, and assuming you have the correct switch, for capacitor speed control.... (if you don't you will not blow anything up)
On your capacitor, there should be a set of two wires which are the same color. Black goes to L The two wires which are the same color, one will go to position 1. The other two wires, will go to 2 and 3. On the capacitor it should have some numbers and crude diagram with the color of wire on it. The wire with the highest value (say it's 6) will go to position 2 and the lower value will go to position three.
If you only have one small capacitor in the switch housing, (usually a red and white wire one) then you have a winding taps speed control. If you have a capacitor type switch, you can burn out your motor, as on the second position of that switch it activates both 2 and 3 (or medium and low) Be sure you have a switch which operates as such L+1 L+2 L+3. If you have the proper switch, then all you need to do is connect the black wire to L and then randomly place the other three wires into the switch and test it. Most likely the speeds won't be right (it might go medium, low, high) if it does, then just move the wires around until it goes high medium low.

Hello. The most common configuration is: L - Orange, 1 - Black, 2 - Yellow, 3 - Purple
