Try this;
1-Gray
2-brown
3-green
L-black
If this doesn't work then you might have the wrong switch.
Even if the switch looks the same on the outside it doesn't mean it's the same on the inside.

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!

I have a harbor breeze ceiling fan on a dimmer


You have 3 options. You can connect the fan blue and the fan black to the red ceiling wire. Then you will need to control the fan and light with the strings. The wall switch will turn off everything. Option 2 is make sure that there is a switch wired to the black ceiling wire. If there is a switch I would check to make sure the switch is working. Option 3 is to purchase a remote control unit for both and leave the wall switch to shutoff the whole unit. Hope this helps.

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.

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.

One black wire on the switch hooked to the black sources wire. The other black wire on the switch hooked black up to the fan. The green on the switch wire goes to the bare wire. If there is bare wire you can use the white wire.
