Question about Patton U2-1487 Floor / Box Fan

Open Question

Replacing a switch to a three speed fan motor.

I have a patton high velocity fan. Was originally a three speed fan but the switch failed and was switched out to a toggle type that just used a med speed. I found a pull chain type switch for three speeds I would like to change it out with but I think it might be for two speeds. If so I would like a medium and high setting. the power cord coming in has of course the two wired. the original motor has four.Red, Blue, Black, White. The switch hads three wires. Red, Blue, Black. Can someone kindly direct me, which wires to which?

    Why not just buy a 3 speed fan switch? And how many & what color wires are in the cord?

Need a wiring diagram for 3 speed patton floor fan

A three way switch has 3 terminals, these for floor fans operate by a rotary switch but can be adapted to use any 120V Rotary toggle or rocker type switch. technically your compartment (or room provided will determine which to use). I'd suggest you replace it with one like the one that no longer works. The one good thing about fans the direction they rotate in is already determined, and with a/c current it will work even if you connect it up wrong! If it work's then fine don't over think it

I was looking for this but figured it out myself. The guy wire is hot, the red goes to the low coil and the black goes to the high. So, if you wire the gray and black together, you get high as soon as you plug the fan in.
