Question about Lakewood HV-18 Floor / Box Fan
I have a 3 speed lakewood box fan that fell over and stopped working. I pulled the switch off to replace it and now don't remember which wires go where.

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.

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.
