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

This fan is from about 5-10 years ago. Took it apart to use the motor for something else and the wires popped out of the switch... it is a 4-position switch (off low med high) there are the 2 white wires leading to outlet plug) (not sure where to put them) and a green ground. the switch has four colored wires coming from motor into switch: black, blue, red, white.

The black and blue wires are in place in position - blk-1, blu-2, which leaves the red and white wires to put in position L or 3 but since I don't know wiring I'm not sure if these are supposed to go here (and which) or in the additional two slots (which for the moment I'm assuming are for the white cord/extension/outlet wires).

Sorry if this is confusing. Please help

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)

One wire from the line cord goes directly to the motor, the "hot" is switched.  The "L" indicates the hot cord wire, the rest are speeds.

Dan, did you check the circuitry and relays to the motor, as was suggested on March 29th? If the motor can't get power it won't work. It seems, that this may be the problem, since you took the motor apart and there were no broken gears and all other electrical devices work. The other resolution was to contact R.H.Peterson Company, the manufacturer for more information, if all else failed.

Sometimes aftermarket systems will have an in line fuse. If that's not it, look around on the blower box, for some wires going to a connector that is held to the blower box with a couple of screws. It's the blower motor resistor. It could be that or the switch.

ok, what I meant was is it a live wire. Assuming it is and setting it aside, The other three must be leaving the switch. Hot in and three out for different speeds. The speeds are controlled downstrean on each wire either by resistors or motor design. The fan motor(s) are grounded at their mounting locations. So, touch the hot wire to each of the others one at a time to confirm. Then, turn the switch to low and insert the hot wire into a terminal until the one that that turns the fan on is found. Turn the switch off to confirm control and then turn switch to confirm control of the other two speeds. No need to worry about shorting anything, The ground would be your only fear and it's far remote. Good luck

Lay the fan face up on a flat surface. The front grill should be facing you. Remove the screws from the rear grill. Place a flat-head screwdriver into the gap between the front and rear grills. Pull the front grill towards you, exposing the fan blade. Do not remove the knobs on either side. Then, wipe the blade with a soft, damp cloth. Use a mild detergent if necessary. Be sure not to touch the motor. Click here to download product instruction sheet.

Sounds like the radiator fan might be staying on and not switching off causing the battery to drain when you're parked. Could be a defective fan switch or more complicated the wires going to or from the fan module or the fan module itself.
