Hi, try this.
The pull chain has four wires, L, 1, 2, 3. Connect '3' to the main black (hot) wire entering the fan. Connect 'L' to the red wire on the reverse switch. connect '1' to the lowest uF, eg ( 1.5 uF ). Connect '2' to the next uF, eg ( 3uF ). The other end of the capacitor has to be connected to the neutral wire, ( black with pink or white). If you have a VOM tester, check that pull switch is working properly, eg when the switch is on the Hi speed position, you should get a continuety reading on all the ends of the switch,

SOURCE: trying to replace 3 speed
The pull switch has 4 wires, L, 1, 2, 3.
Connect ' L' to the reverse switch red wire or the wire that is free.
Connect ' 3 ' to the main black ( hot ) wire entering the fan.
Connect ' 1 ' to the capacitor's lowest uF eg. ( 1.5 uF )
Connect ' 2 ' to the capacitor's next uF eg. ( 3 uF )
the Capaciotr also has to be connected to the neutral wire entering the fan, usually black attached to another color wire. If you have a VOM tester, veryfy that it is a neutral wire.
