SOURCE: Trying to replace 3 speed ceiling fan switch

Hello,

The black goes to the L connection the others are a guess. You can do this two ways. Connect the colored wires in any sequence and then see what switch sequence give you high and lowest, the other one will be medium. Once you determine that, mark the wires with a piece of masking tape as high, medium and low. Otherwise you connect them, turn power on and use a multimeter to see which color gives you the highest voltage and which gives you lowest. Since you aren't comfortable using live wires and a meter, go with the first option and use the process of elimination to find the wires giving you the speeds you need to find the highest and lowest. Next, you need to determine how your switch sequence works. First pull has to give you highest speed. so you may end up wiring them in reverse if your first attempt is backwards. There is a reason the first pull needs to be highest, it powers up the motor so you can then chose a lower setting. A low setting first will over tax your motor and wear it out eventually as it has to work harder at first.

Let me know if you need further clarification and perhaps this is all you need to get fixed.

I broke a shade on my harbor breeze lighthouse II ceiling fan, will you find the model number so I can order one?


Wrong way round, YOU tell us the model number and type and we tell you where to get the shade. You can see the fan in your house, but we can't. That makes it really difficult for us. Some shades are plain, some are fluted, some have patterns.

All is not lost though. Go here and take your pick. They all sell them including Harbour Breeze themselves..

Wiring diagram for ze 208d fan switch


First, you have to get the correct switch! Just because it looks the same on the outside doesn't make it the same on the inside. That's a low-end store brand fan(Lowes). Why would you not mark down what color wire into which slot before you took it off. All I can tell you is the black wire usually goes into the L.

Pedestal fan will not run.


The cost of repair probably probably will make replacement more feasible.

Harbor breeze fan remote


If the fan has a pull chain then push the Hi button and then pull the chain until it's on high. Then don't pull the chain! If that's not your problem then check the capacitor in the fan.

Need manual for harbor breeze fan model # LP8063


The remote went bad, this is very common. These are great fans with poor design and cheap remotes. Go to Lowe's buy the new kit ( model: RCE-103LW) $30 bat included. Put battery in and turn off light switch. Have a bic pen ready with the battery cover off. Turn on light switch and press "learn" red button with the pen . You will have to hold it down for about 5 secs. The fan will the turn on medium if it took to learning the new remote. All buttons should now work normal. Return old remote to store for exchange they have a 1year return to to store warenty per the company rep. Anyother problems call 1 800 527 1292. They have good cust. Service.

I have a harbor breeze cieling fan with a 3 speed pull switch. It has 4 wires black /gray /brown and purple. The switch has L/1/2/3. I need to know which wire goes in which position ?


Old switch and new switch have to be compared using multi-meter or continuity tester.
Each 3-speed switch has identical pull-chain sequence: off-high-medium-low.
Each 3-speed switch has only one wire that connects to Hot wire.
But the other three wires can vary.
For example connect power to switch Hot wire. Let's say switch is in off position. Pull chain once for high speed and power might flow to just one wire, or it might flow to two wires, depending on the switch.
Pull chain again for medium speed, and power might flow to just one wire, or it might flow to two different wires.
Pull chain again for low speed, and power usually flows to just one wire.

Easiest place to start is to find which wire is Hot.
Only one wire connects to Hot power.
That same wire on the new 3-speed switch will connect to all other wires. When testing, only one wire connects to all other wires.
Once hot wire is determined.
Then test which sequence of wires receives power each time chain is pulled.
Repeat same test on old switch.
Note how old switch was connected. And then map the change-over to new switch.

Ceiling fan stuck on high


Try removing 120 volt power from the fan by turning offf the house circuit breaker or removing the fuse from the fusebox that supplies power to the fan. Wait 30 seconds and restore power. This may reset the fan speed control in the fan itself.
