What make/model of fan do you have? How do you even know if you got the correct switch. Just because it looks the same on the outside doesn't mean it's the same on the inside. Why didn't you connect it the same as the old switch?
Should have written that down when you took out the old one. Anyway, just because a switch looks the same on the outside doesn't mean it's the same on the inside. If you don't find the correct switch let me know. I need to know how many wires on your capacitor And which wire went into which switch opening. usually the black goes into the L.
Just wire up the black wire and cap the others. This will allow the motor to run on high at all times. You have a variable speed motot. Tie the white wire to your commom and the black wire to your source.
you have 3 control wires (the 3 speeds) and a common wire. the common wire will go directly from the fan motor to the power source/cord and the other 3 leads will run through the switch. you could even use a standard dimmer-style lighting rheostat and connect it to the common and "high" fan speed wire and have infinitely variable fan speeds. hope that helps.
I just found this on another site. The answerer there said he hit "med-hi-med-hi" on the remote. I tried that, nothing seemed to work. I was impatient and frustrated and I did that a bunch of times, then tried "lo-hi-lo-hi" a few times. Anyway, I finally gave up and it worked! So it was one of the combos of 2 speeds that worked. It's great!
If you are looking to lower your fan speed, I suggest getting an adjustable wall switch that will limit the current to the settings. I have the same situation, I myself didn't do it but I know it is possible. In my bedroom, I have my ceiling fan wired to a turn knob switch, a dimmer so to speak, that limits the elctrical current, thus slowing the rpm's of the fan blades.
