SOURCE: cealing fan wiring problem

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

Hi
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.

Hunter ceiling fan/light unit install with 3 pole switches. there are 2 white, 2 black and one orange wires coming out of the electrical box. How do i handle the installation?


Not understanding, three pole switch is a wrong switch, wires in the ceiling or wall electric box.
Needed: What switch is existing and what wires are in the switch box and runs or groups in each run coming in as wire groups. Same for ceiling box, colors and wires in each run coming in.
Basically, remove the existing ceiling fixture and connect the ceiling fan replacing the fixture to the same wires the fixture was connected to. White to white, green or bare to green or bare, colored wire to fan's blue and black. Wired like this one switch controls both fan and light, on and off at same time. Use fan pull chain switch for individual fan or light control.

Bad hunter ceiling fan light pull switch


I don't know what you mean, longer stem/chain housing to hold light fixture. You should be replacing a two wire switch only.

Usually you have to press the light switch 3 times and hold to get dim effect adjustments, it is often radio transmitted in some newer models, if the pull switch is bad replace it anyways it could be dangerous if let alone!

Ceiling fan pull chain connected but does not click on


There is a pull chain switch inside the fan termination housing. you will have to take the little cover off and remove the switch. it has 2 small screws with wire landed under them. Turn off the power at the breaker before working on the switch. take this little ****** out and put in a new one. you can get them at the Home Depot or equivelant. it don't matter if the new switch is a little bigger but it still has to fit. use some judgement here. wire it in the place of the old one, turn the power back on at the breaker and it should be ready to go. Presto.

Pull Chains Replacement


Replacements are available at Home Depot and Lowes. This is a regular 4-wire single-layer switch.

Mark the old wires, so you know which ports they go to in the switch (marked L, 1, 2, and 3) -- then remove the old wires by pressing a paper clip into the hole of each wire while pulling firmly on the wire. Then just push the wires into the new switch, into the marked holes.

I hope this helps! If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask!
