Do you have a Menards, or a Lowes in your area, if you do they can give you the answer to this question, it is a bad idea to get this information from on line unless you go to the website for the fan and see if they have the correct wireing diagram on their website......

The lamp has on-off pull-chain switch.
You can buy replacement pull-chain switch at hardware store.
Buy the pull-chain switch that has two wires.
Buy two yellow or orange wire nuts.

Switch off breaker.
Take apart light.
Remove old pull-chain. Strip back the wires if needed, twist wires together.
Connect new pull-chain switch using wire nuts.

I have a ceiling fan switch (Westinghouse 77075) that was broken, so I do not know where the wires (black, gray, yellow and purple) went. The speeds are black+gray+yellow, black+gray+purple, and...


I can offer resources:

1) Test switch that was removed, and test for hot connection to narrow down options.

What speed was fan stuck in when switch was removed? Let's say medium speed.
Which connection at fan is hot? Use voltage tester to find hot connection at fan, and match that up with wire-color on switch that was removed.
One and only one wire on 3-speed fan switch connects to hot. And the hot wire is the only wire that connects to each other wire as switch cycles through pull-chain sequence. All pull chain switches follow same sequence: off, low, medium, high.
Let's say old switch was stuck in medium, and you know which color wire connects to hot.
Test switch with continuity tester to see which wire(s) have continuity with hot wire: some switches, it will be 2 wires, and other switches it will be 1 wire. Match where wire(s) were connected, and map that to tests on new switch.

2) Open following link for illustrations and some other links.

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.

How to replace a 3 speed pull chain


Open following link for illustration and instructions:
As a general rule, the new 3-speed switch has to have same number of wires (either 3 or 4).
The new switch and old switch have to match electrically, which means the old and new switches have to be tested with a continuity tester or multimeter (both testers available at local hardware).
Testing is necessary because wire colors do not always match and because each pull chain can activate different wire or combination of wires.

It takes 2 testers.
699b7e0.jpg regular tester

c7b2876.jpg
Continuity tester has battery and light bulb.

Use regular tester to find Hot wire that feeds old-switch.
Remove old-switch from fan
Strip back wires
Separate wires so they can be tested.
Turn on power.
Test each wire to bare copper wire -or- to green wire -or- to metal part of fan
One of the fan wires will light up tester.
This is the Hot wire.
Mark Hot wire.
Mark which color wire on old-switch went to the hot wire.

Use continuity tester on old-switch.
You know which wire is hot-on-old-switch
Pull chain and test hot-on-old-switch to both of the other wires.
When tester lights up, mark this wire.
Pull chain again and test hot-on-old-switch to both of the other wires.
When tester lights up, mark this wire.
At some point when you pull the chain, the tester will light up both the other wires.
This is the high speed.

Use continuity tester on new-switch.
Repeat the test for old-switch.
Identify which wire will be the Hot wire by process of elimination.
Mark this wire.
Identify high-speed wire.
Pull chain again, and tester lights up on medium speed.
Pull chain again, and tester lights up on low speed
Identify these wires and match pattern to the old-switch

Need a replacement, where do I get one?


If I understand correctly you have a 3-speed fan.
And you need a 3-speed replacement pull-chain-type switch

Lowes carries 3 speed fan switches in the light fixture department.
These switches have multiple wires.
At any given time, there is one-and-only-one wire that connects to power from wall switch.
Lets call this the Power wire.
As you pull the chain, the power passes through the switch and goes to one-and-only-one of the other wires.
The other wires connect to windings in the motor.
The different motor windings control fan speed.

The key to replacing the switch is recording where each wire went before you disconnect old switch.
Once you know which of these wires is the Power wire, then you can test other wires with a continuity tester.
You also know the pull-chain sequence is OFF - HIGH - Medium - Low
Mark wires in fan and mark wires on old switch.
Pull out old switch.
Use regular electrical tester to find which wire in the fan is the power wire (separate wires, turn on power and test each wire to metal part of fan)
Now test the switch wires.
The switch is out of the fan.
You marked the wires so you know which wire is power wire.
Put the continuity tester on the power wire.
Test power wire to each of the other wires.
Click the switch and test to each of the other wires. Mark which wire lights up continuity tester.
Click the switch and test again. Mark which wire lights up continuity tester.
Click again, until each wire is marked in the sequence.
When you click the switch and no wire lights up, then that is the Switch OFF position.
Do the same test on the new pull-chain switch.
Connect the wires to match your testing.

Cannot turn off a pull-chain fixture


It sounds like you have accidentally by-passed the switch. The switch only needs one power leg to the pull-chain switch and the other 3 wires go on the other wire of the switch. The white wires get connected together as you have done.

Please turn off the power before you make a change.

Replace a pull chain in as ceiling light .i have 2 black wires one goes to the black wire with a lock nut where does the other one go


One black switch wire connects to the hot wire for the lights which is probably blue in color.

The other black switch wire connects to the black wire(s) going to the light bulb sockets.
