Question about Miscellaneous
I has 6 speeds up to 750 CFM. Lights work fine. It is over 10 years old. I have previously torn it down to change bearings twice over the years so I am quite familiar with the guts of it. This has me stumped a bit. Unfortunately, I cannot locate the wiring diagram nor a repair manual. I am trying to find which electrical component is bad. The issue starting happening after a neighborhood power glitch which also blew out my Verizon FIOS requiring a new distribution box. When you push the fan button there is no noise at all, no hum, nothing. I did a complete teardown, used jumpers, and this is what I determined: 1. Switch continuity verified OK 2. Circuit board output to the fan motor with motor unconnected is OK at 120v. 3. Circuit board output to the fan motor with motor connected is NG at 0v. 4. Starter capacitor 25 uF tested OK on meter, spike on meter repeatedly as you switch leads. I do not have the right meter to test the uF tolerances. The cap was physically perfect with no bulges, etc. 5. Hooked up the fan motor direct to 120v with the starter cap in place and the fan ran perfectly. Although, it runs only at the highest speed which I recognize from the sound. 6. I suspect something on the circuit board is sensing something not right with the motor/cap and therefore shuts the voltage off to the motor. What do you guys think ?

I called King of Fans and the rep that I spoke with gave me the correct wiring for the 3 speed switch:
The problem is that after I wired it this way I am getting the same result (off on 3 settings and a motor hum on 1 setting). So, either the Westinghouse switch that I bought at Home Depot is not compatible or it is the capacitor. The saga continues.

remove white switch one and connect to incoming white ground--all whites should be connected [hooked] together these are grounds-- switch 1 black from fan ,leave switch 2 red from fan ,switch 3 vanity black

You may find the parts that you need at the following web site...http://www.eceilingfans.com/
They have all of the capacitors there. All you need are the number of wires and the capacitor micro-farad ratings.
