This is fairly simple.

Assuming you have a black brick capacitor, and assuming you have the correct switch, for capacitor speed control.... (if you don't you will not blow anything up)

On your capacitor, there should be a set of two wires which are the same color. Black goes to L The two wires which are the same color, one will go to position 1. The other two wires, will go to 2 and 3. On the capacitor it should have some numbers and crude diagram with the color of wire on it. The wire with the highest value (say it's 6) will go to position 2 and the lower value will go to position three.


If you only have one small capacitor in the switch housing, (usually a red and white wire one) then you have a winding taps speed control. If you have a capacitor type switch, you can burn out your motor, as on the second position of that switch it activates both 2 and 3 (or medium and low) Be sure you have a switch which operates as such L+1 L+2 L+3. If you have the proper switch, then all you need to do is connect the black wire to L and then randomly place the other three wires into the switch and test it. Most likely the speeds won't be right (it might go medium, low, high) if it does, then just move the wires around until it goes high medium low.

SOURCE: I have a hampton bay

One Grey is for Speed 1 and the other Grey is for Reverse.

I don't think it matters which way they're connected but if it does, all it means it when you start the Fan it will run in reverse instead of forwards at Speed 1 so you'll just have to swap them over.

Generally as Diagram Below (Not mine but gives you the idea).

How do I connect the purple,brown,grey and black wires to a harbor breeze fan?


Try this; Purple - 3
Brown - 2
Gray - 1
Black - L
If this doesn't work you probably have the wrong switch. Just because they look the same on the outside doesn't mean they're the same on the inside!

Westinghouse 3speed fan switch 77288


It's the westinghouse switch. Many results on search. I just wasted 2 hours playing switching wires all combos. Others suggested the switch from Lowe's. Harbor breeze #0033905 . Plug wires back in as you listed Black L, Grey 1, Brown 2, Purple 3. Works perfectly for $3.98 plus tax.

Others said you can call Hampton Bay and get the replacement also.

Fan switch are LJY-280A and E198635


I have a Hampton Bay indoor/outdoor ceiling fan with 3 speed fan switch WU Pin LJY280A, E198635. It is a L-3-1-2 (ccw) switch with purple, grey, black and brown wires. The wiring is different than most on web. The L is not black, 2 is black. My wiring for the switch is L-Purple, 3-Grey, 1-Brown, 2-Black.
Found schematic on web that I think is correct:
Off-none,
Hi-L,1 4uF,
Med.-L,2,3 10uF & 4uF,
Low-L,3 5uF & 4uF.
I hope this helps someone.

I have a 3 speed hampton by fan. i'm trying to change the fan switch. i bought a westing house switch and have trouble wireing it. the fan has 4 wires blk purple brown and white.


The black wire should go to one side of the switch, and either the purple or brown wire would go to the other side. The fan is run by either purple or brown, and the light by the other color. If you have no light, then the wire that would go to the light should look unused. Try one, then the other if you guess wrong.
Turn off the power before connecting the wires.
Good luck.
