Question about Hampton Bay 44 In. White Carousel II with Multicolor Blades Fan
I have 2 questions: 1) What is the correct wiring for the 3 speed switch that controls the fan motor. The old switch fell apart and the wires came out before I could mark it down. There is a white, a black, a blue, and a yellow wire. Here is how I wired it: L white 1 black 2 blue 3 yellow. I get nothing on all but 1 speed (not sure which one) where the motor hums but the fan does not turn. It does rotate freely by hand. This leads me to my next question: 2) Is my problem in the capacitor? Or could this result (motor "humming" on 1 speed but not others) still be a result of the wiring being wrong? Any help would be immensely appreciated.
I called King of Fans and the rep that I spoke with gave me the correct wiring for the 3 speed switch:
The problem is that after I wired it this way I am getting the same result (off on 3 settings and a motor hum on 1 setting). So, either the Westinghouse switch that I bought at Home Depot is not compatible or it is the capacitor. The saga continues.
