Question about GE Electrical Supplies
It is a 3 way switch. It must have another switch on the other side of the room that works the same light. One of the wires is a traveler, usually it is not colored, So, you could have 2 things being switched on from one hot wire, test the wires and see which is hot, and mark it, then, take one other wire at a time to see where it goes, find the light, or lamp, or fan, if the 3rd wire doesn't do anything, is there another switch for the same light on the other side of the room? 3 way switches are tricky, keep the package, it has a schematic on it, hopefully it is right at the other end, and it will go right in. check it out, hope this helps.

OK .. the thick black and white are the power for the fan , are there also white wires on the lamp sockets ..??
The thick black wire should connect to the black wire on the switch.
The small black wires connect to the red and blue wire on the switch .. two small black wires each .. that should give you a position for 2 lights , and 4 lights, on the step switch .. but there should be white wires from the lamp sockets connected to the thick white from the fan .
please respond .
