SOURCE: cleaned a fan, now it's broken!!!

Is this the speed switch itself? These multi-speed fans have 4 or 5 wires which come from the motor which go into the speed select switch. The wiring may have the ends stripped, and this stripped end just pushes into the hole on the switch, and a little metal piece grips that stripped end.

Anyway, one possibility is to contact the manufacturer- look on their website or give them a call, see if a tech can give that info. Another poss. is to locate an identical fan and note the wiring locations on it. You can also experiment trial and error, though caution needs to be exercised here.

What I did was (but be VERY VERY carefull) is have the fan plugged in, and check which wires give which speed when you touch the main wire. VERY carefull. I'm not liable for any harm done to you or your fan.

SOURCE: need to replace the switch that has ,hi,low,med off on nit? please Help

you have 3 control wires (the 3 speeds) and a common wire. the common wire will go directly from the fan motor to the power source/cord and the other 3 leads will run through the switch. you could even use a standard dimmer-style lighting rheostat and connect it to the common and "high" fan speed wire and have infinitely variable fan speeds. hope that helps.

Why is fan floor spin but not air is flowing


mcdevito75 here, Check to see if there is a reverse switch on the fan, most of them do, if so flip the switch for proper air flow. the Reverse switch may be together with the speed / on/ off switch either by pulling in it or depressing it, or the reverse switch could be seperate, as say a littler toggle switch. The reverse switch could be with the on/off switch, try to pull or depress the on/off switch and note fan spin direction, also try to twist the on/off switch for fan reversal.

3 speed switch wiring schmatic


On a 3 speed switch you usually have 4 terminals, and they are marked L1, 1, 2 and 3.
L1 which is line voltage from the electrical cord or wall plug, #1 low speed usually a red wire from motor, #2 medium speed usually a blue wire from the motor and #3 high speed usually a black wire from the motor. That is if the fan is low,medium and high, if it says high, medium and low then reverse #1, #2 and #3

Lakewood HV-18 fan... how to wire switch?


My switch unit also fell apart as I took the back off and I didn't get to see the correct position of the switch. After much trial and error, I found this to be the initial "Off" position (see photo)
