Replacing 4 wire 3 speed fan switch with 3 wire 3 speed fan switch. Is it possible??


No it is not going to. If it does then why did they use the four wires in the first place? Duh!

If you cap the ground wire nada will work - if you cap one of the wires going to a motor winding, that speed will not work.

How do I connect the purple,brown,grey and black wires to a harbor breeze fan?


Try this; Purple - 3
Brown - 2
Gray - 1
Black - L
If this doesn't work you probably have the wrong switch. Just because they look the same on the outside doesn't mean they're the same on the inside!

3-speed fan switch broke on Hunter model 28072, cat. 300 fan. Found replacement switch at Lowes, but wiring colors are completely different from manual. What color wires go into L, 1, 2, 3 positions...


My Hunter fan uses a Zing-Ear ZE-268S6 switch. This is NOT a standard switch! It connects L to 2 AND 3 for medium speed. It is best to order the exact switch if possible. Hunter wants to sell you the entire bottom assembly (probably expensive). I found the exact switch online at:

http://www.kenselectronics.com/lists/switches.htm#Pull%20chain

for $6.80 plus $4.95 shipping. I bought an extra which didn't increase the shipping - worked great. Hunter ZE-268S6 ceiling fan connection colors: L=black; 3=green; 1=grey; 2=brown. If you need a different switch on their page, just click the Edit menu, then Find, type your part number in the box, and click Next.

I am replacing the three speed pull chain switch on my fan. The switch broke in the brass housing b4 I could ID where the 4 wires went (L,1,2,3). I could see black was L, but don't know where to put the...


You may just have to guess and try it. As long as the L is right, you'll be fine. My guesses, however, would be 1-brown, 2-gray, 3-purple. I don't have a wiring diagram, those are just based on years of wiring. Good luck and have fun experimenting.
