Question about Westwind Classic Hugger Polished Brass 52" Ceiling Fan
Took apart fan and found out wires were off. There was a brown, purple,gray& black. on switch there is a L,1,2,3 which wire goes where?
There is a common wire, usually the black one. You can easily test this
by using the continuity setting on a multi meter. The common wire will
create a connected circuit to each of the other three wires (if the
black wire doesn't work, it is possible one of the other wires is the
common--you may have to try more than one).
Once you identify the common wire, this goes in the L hole on the switch. Before attaching the wire to the switch, however, you can now determine which of the remaining wires runs the low, medium, and high speeds of the fan. With the power on, simply touch the black wire to each of the other wires (ONE AT A TIME) to see which is low, medium and high. When you have determined this, attach high to hole 1, medium to hole 2, and low to hole 3.
Good luck, and of course, always be careful when working with live wires.

You are going to have to trace the wiring inside the fan to make sure where what goes......
The White is neutral and goes to the white of the electrical box the fan is connected to. Black goes to the black in the same box. Green goes to the Ground.
The white goes all the way thru the fan and is connected internally to the motor and light kit neutral.
Black should go to the fan pull chain switch, the switch will have 3 outputs to the 3 speed fan motor.
The other color usually is for the fan light. It appears at the input on top in case you want the light on the fan to be controlled by a wall switch. Trace it by taking the light kit off, or if there is no light there is a round plate on the bottom of the fan. in some cases there is a light pull chain, in that case the blue will go to that switch, then to the light.
Here is one diagram I found.
Please let me know about it.
