Question about Westinghouse Electric Ceiling Fan 3-way Light Switch By Westinghouse 77052
All three speeds work except that it does not turn off unless the wall switch is flip off.
I had a similar problem. A replacement Westinghouse 3-4 wire 3-speed replacement switch from Home Depot, part # 77020, is a multi-pole that did not work with my ceiling fan. There was no "off" position. I found the correct replacement switch, sold under the "Harbor Breeze" name, part # 033905, which is a single pole switch, at Lowe's, at a better price!

The Westinghouse 77020 switch functions as follows:
Position ' Connections
The correct functions of a 3-speed fan switch, or at least in the case of a Hunter
ceiling fan, are as follows:
Position ' Connections
So either you can buy a different switch from a different manufacturer, or you can do like I did & modify the Westinghouse switch by opening it, removing the #3 connection, & shaving down the plastic housing underneath the metal contacts for the #3 wire. The reason you do this is so you can get that connection to sit as low in the housing as the terminal marked L. Then you must modify the piece in the center. It has 3 long brass terminals & one short one. Now remove the plastic barrel inside the brass terminals. Using a pair of dikes, cut the small tab off. Hold the terminal piece so it looks like a "C" & cut the top & the side terminals down halfway. Now just put it back together wiring it as follows:
L = GREEN
1 = GRAY
2 = BROWN
3 = BLACK
It should now work if done correctly.

You can find a switch with an off position and change it out.probably was meant to be controlled from a wall switch,and the off position on the speed selector would be confusing.(When you would turn the wall switch on but no fan).

I have experience a similar problem.Home depot has different kinds of 3 speed fan switches at different locations. I found westinghouse 77020 at one location and a westinghouse 77021 at another. Fortunately the 77020 worked for me. But for a reference Westinghouse has 3 types 77020, 77021 and 77023.
