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.

I need to connect Orange, Yellow, Purple and Black wires from fan into the correct corresponding numbers on fan switch 1,2,3, L (0033906)


Try this; Orange - 1
Yellow - 2
Purple - 3
Black - L

If this doesn't work, you probably have the wrong switch. Just because a switch looks the same on the outside doesn't mean it's the same on the inside.

Tip

4 way switch


If you wish to control a light or lights from more than 2 places, then you need a 4 way switch in between the 3way switches. You can use any number of 4 way switches in a lighting circuit.
To rough wire the switches, run a 3wire with ground cable from the 3way thru the 4way(s) to the other 3way. As in the 3way switch wiring the light and power can be at either end, that part does not change.
The diagram for the addition of a 4way switch looks like this..

The travelers from the 3way switch connect to like colored screws on the 4way .. If more switches are wanted, just add them in the center of the circuit in the same manner as the first 4way .

I am having trouble installing the wiring with my westinghouse. I don't know how to match up the wires. The Westinghouse has black, white, blue, and green wires, and my house wiring is purple, yellow and...


At the fan green is ground, blue is to turn on the fan, black turns on the light. I believe at your house wiring white is neutral and goes to the white in the fan. The purple and yellow are to switch on the fixtures, you can connect the purple to the blue, and the yellow to the black.

ok. hope this helps, use a switch from FANTEC. it'll be called a 3 speed fan switch. CAM #5 No. 21105. this will also say Single Layer 3 or 4 wire application SPLIT continuity function.. THE SPLIT PART IS VITAL. now when wire it. the BLACK wire goes in SLOT 3. ORANGE wire goes in L. PURPLE wire goes in slot 2, ORANGE wire goes in slot 1. IF, and i repeat IF this does not work for you ensure you have a SPLIT CONTINUITY FUNCTION switch. NO MATTER WHAT the BLACK wire WILL go into slot 3. the ORANGE wire WILL go in slot L. switch the orange and purple wires only. ENSURE POWER IS OFF WHEN CONNECTING OR DISCONNECTING WIRES. YOU WILL GET THE SNOT ZAPPED OUTTA YOU IF YOU DON'T. please post if this helps.
