Hunter ceiling fan, replacing speed switch, what wire goes to the L, 1, 2, and 3?


I can only guess since I don't know what model or what color wires you have. Here's wiring for single stack switch on some Hunters;

L- black
1 - grey
2 - brown
3 - green
Hope this helps.

How do I replace pull chain on old hunter fan. No replacement available Home Depot gave generic switch. I don't know what wire color goes in switch L 1 2 3 Wire colors are red black blue


If that's a two speed hunter, you have the wrong switch. You need to get a two-speed switch. This switch comes with the wires attached. Do you have the fan model?

I got my craftmade ceiling fan about 10 years ago, the fan has now stopped working but the light works, I changed out the switch on the wall that was not the problem sometimes I will turn on the wall...


pretty sure its the 3 speed pull chain switch.$4.50 to $6.00 at home depot or lowes or hardware/elecrtical store.
how 2 replace switch.
1.turn off breaker to fan/fan lights,probably that whole room.
may need extension cord & floor lamp from closest room with electric, so u can see.
2.need 6ft step ladder to get up to fan.look see how to get to fan speed switch. speed switch unscrews from outside but body of switch is inside fan cover.
3. need to take fan off ceiling to replace switch.
4.switch has 4 wires, power feed into switch and 3 selector
wires that go to high speed winding,medium speed winding and low speed winding.
speed selector switch has 4 settings, off, low,medium,high.

about ac circuits , black wire is 120 volts, hot.
white wires are neutral return wire. an ac voltmeter will read 120volts ac with its red and black probes between black,hot and
white,neutral.
white= neutal=ground which is green. If wired properly and polarity was observed, white and green ground wires both connect to the neutral ground buss bar in the circuit breaker panel box and are the same electrical point.

black wires,and the selector handle getting the hot juice into the fan and white returns the used juice to the circuit breaker panel box.
If polarity was observed, you can touch white and ground without getting a shock.
black will jolt or even fry you dead, so make sure the breaker to the fan is off, so that the circuit is de-energized before you touch it.

PLEASE NOTE--- make drawing on paper of what color wires from the fan motor go to what color wires on the selector switch.
If the switch has 4 black wires, you need to put different color electrical tape as a marker, on each wire. or ,to be cheap, you can use white paper,scissors to cut paper,and pencil and write 1,2,3,4 on the paper and tape to the 4 switch wires.

that is: wire # 1 from the switch goes to the black wire from the wall--ac hot
wire #2 from switch goes to yellow fan motor winding,
wire # 3 from switch goes to orange wire from fan motor

wires are specific and NOT interchangeable.

How many wires on capisitor? Black usually goes to L. Should write this down before removing switch. You can't buy any swich off a rack and expect it to work even if it looks the same on the outside.

Westinghouse Lighting 3speed Ceiling Fan Switch 7707500: I just replace the speed control switch in my Hunt...


Typically the old and new switches have no relative relationship to each other .. One way to figure this out is shut off the power and then using the black power wire attach each speed wire to it and turn power back on to observe the speed .. mark the wire with the speed 1, 2, 3, .repeat this untill all the wires are identified .. . then you can put the wires on the appropriate terminations on the new switch ..

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.

I am trying to install a 42" ceiling suspended fan .. just making sure the blue(1) and black(2) wires go together and then the green goes to the bare ground wire coming from the box.


If you are not using a seperate switch to control the fan the blue and black go together and the white goes to white and the green goes to green. The blue wire is the fan power wire and the black is the light power wire if you are just using the switch on the fan to control the fan speed then the above configuration is the way it should be wired.

Speed control switch


I saved this text I found when I was researching this a while ago.
Let us know how you do.

Wiring a three speed fan switch
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My daughter called me the other day and said Dad the ceiling fan in the kitchen is not working only the light works. I went over and removed the three screws that hold the light and pull chain for the fan down and found that the fan control switch had snapped open and all 4 wires had popped out. The snap clips on each side of the switch had broken off. I went down to Home Depot in the ceiling department and found the switch I was looking for. It said for a four wire ceiling fan. OK, know lets put it back together. First of all if you look at the new switch you should see four holds were the wires will be pushed into. The black wire in the fan is the hot or load wire, this wire is hot whenever the wall switch to the fan is turned on. Put this wire in the hole that is marked “L” this stands for load. Now with this switch in the off position the fan will not work until you pull the chain. The other three holes are marked #1, #2 and #3. On most fans #1 is usually high speed. # 2 medium and #3 low speed. What you now have to determine is what wires are high medium and low. The easiest way to do this is before you put any of the wires back into the new switch is to FIRST MAKE SURE NO POWER IS GOING TO THE FAN. Then simply take one of the colored wires at a time and twist it together with the black hot wire.
Turn the power back on to the fan and knot the fans speed. Do this with all three wires one at a time until you can determine which wire is high speed. Note the color of the wire and mark it down on paper.(Example; blue wire high speed.) Do this with the other two wires to determine there speed. Once you have the speed of each wire you can reassemble the new switch.
Black wire (Load) goes in hole marked L. High speed wire goes in hole marked # 1. Medium speed goes in hole marked #2 and low speed goes in hole # 3. MAKE SURE THE POWER TO THE FAN IS TURNED OFF WHILE YOU ASSEMBLE THE NEW SWITCH.
For those of you that have all these wired hooked up right and still the fan won't work I would then look for an open neutral wire. It should be a white wire. Check to see if all the wires are securly attached.
Good luck. One more word of advice. If you're not sure on what you are doing when it comes to electrical wiring then please do not attempt to do this or any other electrial work yourself. Call a licensed electrian. Any mistakes on your part could void your home owners insurance in case of a fire.
