Capacitors are of a construction of two plates separated by an insulating material
the charge is the differentiating charges of the plates + charge trying to neutralize the - charge of the other plate
so which ever wire is not important when connecting a 2 wire capacitor as either wire will put + charges on one plate and the other wire will put - charges on the other plate
when the switch is activated, the sudden discharge as the plates cancel each other out produces a surge of power that start
s the motor spinning
In some instances, capacitors are used to absorb electrical energy that causes static in other electrical items like radios , tv etc
again the wire connections is immaterial as it acts like I stated by placing + and - charges on different plates and discharging when there is a cycle change eliminating the lack of power flow when the cycle changes in the AC current

How to install new ceiling fan 3 speed switch with the 5 wires on the condenser?


Sales person should have written down what color wire goes into which slot on the switch. If you have two wires on the same end, and the same color, one of these goes into the #1. Black usually goes into the L slot. But, none of this matters if you don't have the correct switch. Just because it looks the same on the outside doesn't mean it's the same on the inside.

How do replace the pull chain


Make sure you DO NOT cut the wires! Mark down which color wire goes into which slot on the switch before you remove it. Now all you have to do is get the correct switch and push the wires into the correct slots.

How do I replace the 4-wire fans speed control in the Heritage 5ALW52PB3P with a 3-wire speed control?


You have to replace the switch. You cannot open & fix. First, write down which color wire goes into which slot on the switch. Each slot should be marked, usually L,1,2 & 3. DO NOT CUT WIRES. I don't know this fan so you'll have to get a switch where you bought the fan. Otherwise, I need to know how many wires on your capacitor & which slot on the switch they go into. Remember, just because a switch looks the same on the outside doesn't mean it's the same on the inside. fanman9952@aol.com

Where can i purchase a 4 wire switch


You can't just get a four wire switch & think it's going to work on your fan. That's just a low-end store brand fan so I would need to know how many wires on your capacitor & what slots & color of wire goes into pull chain switch. DO NOT CUT WIRES!

HAVE HAMILTON bAY CEILING FAN, WORKS WELL BUT FAN WILL NOT STOP ALL THE WAY. INSTALLED NEW PULL CHAIN SWICH AND NEW TIMMER, STILL HAS CURRENT GOING THROUGH.


You don't have the correct switch. A lot of switches look alike on the outside but they are different on the inside. Call 1-800-365-4548 and tell them how many wires on your capacitor and which color wire goes into which slot on the pull chain switch.

Ceiling fan model 1660


Always write down which color wire goes into which slot on the pull chain switch before removing it. All I can tell you is the black wire usually goes into the L. The others you'll have to play with. Also, just because the switch looks the same on the outside doesn't mean it's the same on the inside.
