Question about Dryers
The switch for the fan that changes speeds and turns it on and off got broken and the fan stayed on for about 3 months straight,when I got time to replace the pull chain switch I noticed the capacitor had gotten hot and the casing had melted,could this be from running the fan continuously for so long?

I recently replaced my hampton bay fan for the same reason (slow at all speeds) and discovered scorched and melted capacitors and wiring inside the fan. My suggestion is to stop using fan and replace immediately.

Your voltage is probably too low, probably a bad wire or source. Let me know if it worked.

NOT ALL SWITCHES ARE THE SAME!!!! Some are single layer and some are not!!. I think you can tell by the body color of the switch. Red and Black, Grey and Black, ETC. I figured this out after buying 3 of the wrong switches. Each one hooks up a little different. If it is an aloha brand fan like sold at WalMart it is a common issue. Just call there 800 number and they will send you a new one. You have to know the exact model number of have the bar code. Usually there is a bar code on top of the motor. Just take it down from the ceiling and look. I called them on Thursday and got a free switch and capacitor on Monday!! My fan is going great again. If you have the old switch check it or just call the fan's customer service!!
Just call 1-800-295-4448. Even the call is free.

if you indeed have a 23852 hunter original...
Black goes to L, High is Red, Gray is medium and yellow is low. Make sure you have the right switch.
