Question about Hampton Bay 52 In. Brushed Nickel Romano with Integrated Pan Style Light Kit Fan
Fan came with the house. Did not have a pull chain for the fan. Opened it up; the chain was pulled out of the switch. Bought a new switch, but did not make note of which wires go where on the switch. Have black, white, blue and yellow. I know black is the hot. From touching them together I know that white has to be on for any speed to work, but I have never gotten low speed, only medium and high. Which wires go in L-1-2-3? Thanks.
18 gauge is a little light... should use 14. Are you sure it is a hum, or is it possibly the fan resonating due to imbalance of the blades. Watch to see if the fan is oscillating when it runs. Also, does changing the speed affect the frequency of the hum. If this is the case, you have to balance the blades using metal shims.

By using the "switch" to change direction I assume you mean the small slide switch on the side of the fan housing. What you have done is correct and would not affect this switch. The switch is probably bad and you need to return the fan. Suggestion: if the switch is on the housing of the light kit and the light kit connects to the fan with a plug, you are in luck. Go get another fan, swap the light kits and return the fan. Saves you a lot of work. Good luck!

Lowe's or Home Depot come to mind. If you are the DIY type, find a thrift store. Spare parts abound....and they're cheeeeeep!

Most fans have a small rectangular multi-tap capacitor connected to the speed control in the fan. It is likely that this has gone partially bad. The capacitance values are printed on it. Lighting stores and big box hardware stores generally carry replacements.
