That would depend on the make and model of the fan. best to check the manufactorer web site for this information or call them if you do not have internet.

I need to connect Orange, Yellow, Purple and Black wires from fan into the correct corresponding numbers on fan switch 1,2,3, L (0033906)


Try this; Orange - 1
Yellow - 2
Purple - 3
Black - L

If this doesn't work, you probably have the wrong switch. Just because a switch looks the same on the outside doesn't mean it's the same on the inside.

Each manufacturer has their own color code. Generally, black is hot & white is neutral. You should confirm this with a test light or a meter. To complicate things even more, some manufacturers have a receiver in the box for a remote. The best thing to do when replacing a switch with multiple speeds is to transfer one wire at a time to the new switch (with the power turned off at the circuit breaker panel).

I'm looking to replace the fan switch for a hampton bay ceiling fan, but I don't know where the wires go. The colors of the wires are black, yellow, purple, and orange, and the slots on the switch are L,...


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.

At the fan green is ground, blue is to turn on the fan, black turns on the light. I believe at your house wiring white is neutral and goes to the white in the fan. The purple and yellow are to switch on the fixtures, you can connect the purple to the blue, and the yellow to the black.
