On a 3 speed switch you usually have 4 terminals, and they are marked L1, 1, 2 and 3.
L1 which is line voltage from the electrical cord or wall plug, #1 low speed usually a red wire from motor, #2 medium speed usually a blue wire from the motor and #3 high speed usually a black wire from the motor. That is if the fan is low,medium and high, if it says high, medium and low then reverse #1, #2 and #3

    The white/black (neutral) wire from plug go to the white wire on motor, black wire from plug goes to L1 on the switch.

Lakewood box fan 3 speed switch wiring schmatic


What I did was (but be VERY VERY carefull) is have the fan plugged in, and check which wires give which speed when you touch the main wire. VERY carefull. I'm not liable for any harm done to you or your fan.

Speed indicators light up but no fan operation 18" floor fan.


Your fan speed control module is probably shorted and is damaged. Have it repaired by an electrician.

Need to replace the switch that has ,hi,low,med off on nit? please Help


you have 3 control wires (the 3 speeds) and a common wire. the common wire will go directly from the fan motor to the power source/cord and the other 3 leads will run through the switch. you could even use a standard dimmer-style lighting rheostat and connect it to the common and "high" fan speed wire and have infinitely variable fan speeds. hope that helps.

Cleaned a fan, now it's broken!!!


Is this the speed switch itself? These multi-speed fans have 4 or 5 wires which come from the motor which go into the speed select switch. The wiring may have the ends stripped, and this stripped end just pushes into the hole on the switch, and a little metal piece grips that stripped end.

Anyway, one possibility is to contact the manufacturer- look on their website or give them a call, see if a tech can give that info. Another poss. is to locate an identical fan and note the wiring locations on it. You can also experiment trial and error, though caution needs to be exercised here.

Lakewood HV-18 fan... how to wire switch?


My switch unit also fell apart as I took the back off and I didn't get to see the correct position of the switch. After much trial and error, I found this to be the initial "Off" position (see photo)

Window Fan switch bad


Steve, Your fan model is HV-18-WR; I have 2 with the same problem. I can't find a source for DYE-3606 switches either. Here is one source for rotary switches; one might be suitable: http://www.alliedelec.com/Catalog/Indices/Products.asp?sid=46BBAA8076DBE17F&N=4294828748 I can draw a diagram of how the existing switch is connected, but I don't know how that would translate to a replacement switch.
