    I found out that the wire broke from the motor. I fixed it and it started working. I thought it was the chain because when I try to turn from low to high, the wire broke.

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.

Hi: I have an bathroom heater fan, Thermosafe model:3208,(new Zealand) one day i found out that i could not turn it on, it even not make the "clip" sound (this heater wasn't designed...


From your description, it sounds like the pull chain ON/OFF switch is broken.Admittedly, this is the first time I have ever heard of a pull chain switch being on an electric heater, But, I guess it is in the ceiling and not wired to a wall switch, it's the only way to turn it ON or OFF. I wouldn't think that replacing the pull chain switch would be that difficult or expensive to replace. Most home centers and hardware stores sell this type of switch for use in ceiling fans, The key would be removing the faulty switch and taking it with you to buy a new one. You want to be sure that the new switch matches the amperage and polarity of the old switch.

As far as the unit only being a year old and the switch failing so quickly ... it's in a warm moist environment 24 hours a day. It doesn't surprise me that the switch broke. You might want to consider replacing the pull chain switch with a hard wired wall switch. Certainly, it would cost more than replacing the pull chain switch, but you'd never have that problem again.

I hope this helped you, Mary. Please let me know.

How do you open a wu pin switch. the chain broke & went inside switch


My chain was broken about 1.5 - 2 centimeters inside the wu pin. I took a chain connector (with some chain hanging off one end) and fed it into the hole, trying to connect it to the broken chain. After a couple of tries I managed to get the end of the broken chain inside the wu pin to connect to the chain connector by gently pulling down once it was somewhat inside the chain connector. I hope this works for you. I was so glad I didn't have to resort to cutting any wire or making a trip to a home improvement store!

PULL CHAIN FOR LIGHT BROKE AND IS INSIDE THE UNIT. HOW DO I GET THE LIGHT UNIT OFF TO GET TO THE PULL CHAIN UNIT.


"PULL CHAIN FOR LIGHT BROKE AND IS INSIDE THE UNIT. HOW DO I GET THE LIGHT UNIT OFF TO GET TO THE PULL CHAIN UNIT."

My oh my!
I don't know of any shortcuts, and the working position does not make the operation a pleasurable one. Not in Summertime!

The time I had to repair that, I needed to pull the whole fan down. Once the whole fan was down, the rest was easy!

It's easier that it appears, but mark all the wires connected in the box.
There is USUALLY a steel cable attached to the fan assembly and the box, to prevent the thing accidentally falling on someone's head.

If you don't have a helper, taking the blades off may be a good idea, but don't take my word for that. Putting them back on was no picnic.

FYI. If you don't have any bead-chain handy, a suitable lenght of sash cord is probably the best replacement.

Ceiling fan stuck on low


in order for the remote control to work properly the fan has to be on its highest speed using the pull chain ... after setting the pull chain in the proper position you can tie up the chain or remove it to prevent others from changing the setting .. the remote will control the speed from then on ..

Can't Find Correct Pull Chain Switch I have a new bathroom wall sconce that has a two lights - a regular bulb and an LED night light. The pull chain switch for it broke and no one at Lowes or Home Depot...


It's called a "momentary switch, normally closed". This is sometimes abbreviated Mom Switch, NC. But I have never seen one with a pull chain before. Maybe you can find one with a toggle that you can attach a chain to.
Good luck.

The pulley chain broke on the light on my ceiling fan and there is no slack to turn the light on or off. Can you please tell me how to fix or replace pulley?


To replace chain switch with a new one (available at a hardware store), first turn off power to the fan. Unscrew the nut on the bottom of the fan which holds the coverplate in place. Find two wires going to the switch, pull them out of the enclosure, take the wire nuts off. Now you can take the old switch out by unscrewing the locking nuts that hold it in place. Put the new switch in by reversing the instructions for removal.
Good Luck.
