Question about Speed Ceiling Fan 3-speed Switch By Westinghouse 77075
My old switch has only 1 layer and the new switch is 2 layer - when I put all the wires in the same slots as the old switch - it won't work - I put the wires in the outer layer of the new switch - any suggestions?
You have to find which wire does what on your switch.Its a three speed fan so you should have three wires that go from the switch to the fan,and one wire that goes from the switch to the hot wire from your house.What you need is a continuity tester.The switches common wire connects to the hot wire from the house.To find this wire you use the continuity tester.as you switch the switch the common wire will be either disconnected from all other wires,or it will be connected one at a time to each of the other wires.only the common wire will be connected to more than one other wire from the switch.If you don't know how to use a continuity tester.it is pretty simple.It has two leads that come from it and when you touch the two wires together the tester lights,or buzzes,or it changes a reading on a display,or all three.depends on what kind you have.what your doing is instead of just touching the leads together your doing it through the switch leads,and hence through the switch.anyway after you find the common wire the other three wires connect to the inputs of the fan.You really want to connect the first wire that connects to the common through the switch to the wire that turns the fan on low then the next wire to the medium then the high.It wont blow up or anything if its in the wrong order,but it wont switch from low to medium to high.
