Question about Hunter 23852 Classic Original Ceiling Fan
If the oil is OK then check to see if it has a capacitor that might be going bad.

Assuming that the unit was wired properly from the factory and without being able to look at the switch I would have to agree that the switch is bad. The different speeds are obtained by having a different winding for each speed. If the unit was wired properly at the factory and never had three different speeds then the switch is not rotating between all the contacts. The switch should only be a couple of dollars and would certainly be a cheap solution to try. You can check the existing switch by removing it from the circuit completely and checking the continuity with a DMM from the input to each output as you switch it. Continuity should move from one to two to three. If not the switch is bad. If the switch checks out OK then you have a bad winding in the fan and probably need a new unit. Good luck.

Motors work with magnets. These may be permanent, or more commonly elecromagnets. These are the rotor, and the field magnets. Another type of motor just uses a field magnet and iduces flux in the rotor.
Either way, it sounds like one of the main coil windings has either burnt out or mechanically broken.
If you want to remove it and test the coils with a meter (check resistance of each) this should show the fault.
If a coils burn't out. it's scrap .

I have the same problem but it does not trip the main circuit breaker, just the fans internal power safety trigger (the light comes on as if power was interupted). I suspect a bad relay on the receiver board. Before breaking completely, the fan reverse-direction button quit working. Then the fan would not start intermittently. Now it clicks but does not spin. The light has always worked.
The part number for the receiver board on this model is Remote: Receiver 85112-02-000. I've tried to find a website where I could just order the part but no luck yet. Probably best to call Hunters Service Center Locator at: (800) 448-6837. A discount part house may also have the part.
Good luck with your fan problem. Hunter should send us free replacement boards!

It sounds like the motor slow and fast speed windings are energized at the same time. This can be caused by a bad switch. Is this a new install or a used unit? The switch can be replace easily and very cheaply. If you have an ohmmeter you can check the resistance from common to the low and high speed connections. You should only be able to read through either one then pull the cord to change speed and be able to read through the other. When it is off you shouldn't be able to read through either. Hope this helps.

You got the wrong switch for the fan. The fan was 2 speed before, right? Well. the Switch you bought while it being three wire and the same colors as what was in the fan before, is not the same switch.
The new switch, at some point (when you smelled burning) activated both low and high speed in the motor, drawing double current, overheating the windings. Your motor MAY be ok, but I would personally not trust it anymore without getting a motor shop to Megohm the winding to check it for insulation quality. (The fan is worth it)
Your original switch functioned as so... L 1, L 2, off. or alternatively (if it was the metal leviton switch) off-high-off-low. Your new switch was designed for use in a lighting kit... L 1 L 2, then L 1 2. In a light kit, you would turn two bulbs on, then the other two would come on, the first two shutting off, then all 4 would come on. This is why your motor is now likely burned out.
