Question about Hampton Bay 04379 Madison Avenue Ceiling Fan

1 Answer

Fan switch broken

The switch for the fan, 3 speeds, broke inside the unit. I thought the chain was hung up but when I removed the cover plate the switch fell out in pieces.
All it says on the switch pieces is 3A-250VAC 6A-124VAC VS325-01
First question is where can I get a replacement switch?

Second question is how do I wire it back up for the wires were not attached to the switch?

thanks

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

How do you open a wu pin switch. the chain broke & went inside switch


My chain was broken about 1.5 - 2 centimeters inside the wu pin. I took a chain connector (with some chain hanging off one end) and fed it into the hole, trying to connect it to the broken chain. After a couple of tries I managed to get the end of the broken chain inside the wu pin to connect to the chain connector by gently pulling down once it was somewhat inside the chain connector. I hope this works for you. I was so glad I didn't have to resort to cutting any wire or making a trip to a home improvement store!

The chain that control on/off and the speed broke


mcdevito75 here, You"ll have to remove the cover that"s holding the switch. Hopefully you can just un-screw this cover from the ceiling and lower it down the chain that supports the fan from the ceiling, the fan motor itself is bolted to the ceiling beam so that"s not a problem. NOW!! to get a new switch It"ll have to be a 2 or 3 position switch, you may be able to match the switch up at a large hardware store, Home Depot etc. First I would check around and see if you can get the switch, check local hardware stores. The maybe hire a handy man/woman to do the job. If I'm accurate the job is not bad for anyone who is handy.

How to attach an on/off chain to a ceiling light- the original broke off somewhere inside. The fan switch is intact. This is one unit.


You need the little coupler thing that connects to the ball that makes up the chain. If you dont have the coupler ... you could get one at your local Ace Hardware store ... or you could just purchase a similar switch which would have the coupler on the chain.

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

The pulley chain broke on the light on my ceiling fan and there is no slack to turn the light on or off. Can you please tell me how to fix or replace pulley?


To replace chain switch with a new one (available at a hardware store), first turn off power to the fan. Unscrew the nut on the bottom of the fan which holds the coverplate in place. Find two wires going to the switch, pull them out of the enclosure, take the wire nuts off. Now you can take the old switch out by unscrewing the locking nuts that hold it in place. Put the new switch in by reversing the instructions for removal.
Good Luck.

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.

3-speed switch replaced with hampton bay switch. Only low speed works.


The cause to the problem was replacing a HUNTER fan switch with a Hampton Bay switch. Before removing the old switch, I noted and marked the color and position of the 4 wires. I then duplicated the connections to the new switch.

But the wire positions of Hampton Bay vs Hunter are not identical, therefore 2 wires
were crossed.

The correct way is to note the color of the wires with the corresponding NUMBER
marked on the switches, then duplicate this on the new one.

Du-uh!
