36" San Marino fan has one speed

I have a San Marino fan and all of a sudden it only has one speed. Removed bottom with lights and inside there's a black box i'm thinking is the capacitor. Well it's bubbled out on one side. I'm assuming it is bad. Will that cause my problem. Thank you

Thats the cap.the capacitor is used to jump start single phase motors.if the capacitor is shot the motor barley does anything.if you can find any # or markings on it take it to radio shack and match it up.

Fan speed switch wiring

If your are replacing the fan speed switch on the Hampton Bay San Marino mfg # 67353, this is the correct wiring pattern...L-white, 1-yellow, 2- blue, 3-black. I have been searching for this answer for 2 days. Thought I'd post for others with the same problem.

Hampton Bay San Marino 36" Ceiling Fan

18 gauge is a little light... should use 14. Are you sure it is a hum, or is it possibly the fan resonating due to imbalance of the blades. Watch to see if the fan is oscillating when it runs. Also, does changing the speed affect the frequency of the hum. If this is the case, you have to balance the blades using metal shims.

Dimmer controls the fan / noisy

Sounds like a wireing problem, You wired the light dimmer into the fan control. thats why the fan slows down when you dim the lights.

Fan speed switch is broken.

Home depot sells replacement switches.  First take a look at what you need in your fan.  By the exact or similar speed switch.  Then remove noting placement of wires and put new switch in.  If your down to one speed that is the capacitor.  Call King of Fans and they will send you one free.  This seems to be a common problem.  This is the second time I have replaced this capacitor.
