    The chain broke on my daughter's Hampton Bay fan also. I know how to
    wire it but can't find a replacement switch. The switch is not just a
    generic on that you can get from the hardware store, the internal
    contacts are different.

There are two types of switch for Hampton Bay fans.

One is a single-layer switch, which has all four holes on one level.

The other is a double-layer switch, which has holes in two circles, one on a higher level, and one on a lower level.

Whichever type your fans has, is the type you need to get as a replacement. Be sure to mark the old wires before removing them from the old switch, so you'll know where they go in the new switch.

I hope this helps! If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask!

How do I check to see if the motor is bad on my ceiling fan?


You bought the wrong switch. Just because it looks the same on the outside doesn't mean it's the same on the inside(switch). I don't know if you have a bad motor but it is a cheap low-end fan only made for Home Depot!

How do I replace the 4-wire fans speed control in the Heritage 5ALW52PB3P with a 3-wire speed control?


You have to replace the switch. You cannot open & fix. First, write down which color wire goes into which slot on the switch. Each slot should be marked, usually L,1,2 & 3. DO NOT CUT WIRES. I don't know this fan so you'll have to get a switch where you bought the fan. Otherwise, I need to know how many wires on your capacitor & which slot on the switch they go into. Remember, just because a switch looks the same on the outside doesn't mean it's the same on the inside. fanman9952@aol.com

The chain came out when i went to turn it off. now i can't start it.


turn power off to fan, and replace the pull chain switch. you can buy a switch at any hardware store. but take old one to get the right one for your fan. sometimes wal-mart may have one. good-day ! maybe the chain just broke. if this is the case, then just replace the chain if need be.MAKE SURE POWER TO FAN IS OFF WHILE CHANGING SWITCH !

Fan chain broke and i want to put it back together


If the chain broke from inside the fan you will need a new switch $6 at any home improvement store and if its just the chain links you can buy a another replacement one. Make sure you tell them which switch is broken, fan or light so you get the right one and how many speeds if its the fan

Ceiling Fan Chain Broken Off


You have to kill all power to the fan and start taking it apart till you get to the switch. There's usually just a bottom plate to remove. Sometimes lights. Replace switch and reassemble. If some chain is still connected to the switch you can add chain to it and won't have to replace switch.
