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

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.

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.

Chain broke off ceiling fan


Is it broken off inside the pull switch? If so, I would recommend replacing the switch. The chain attatchment assembly is riveted onto the electrical part of the switch. It is possible to drill out the rivets to separate the two sides of the assembly to replace the chain, however you would need to use small bolts with nuts to reattatch pieces together after installing new chain. It's a pain in the back side.
(of course all this repair work needs to be completed after removing the fan from its ceiling location and disconnecting the wiring)

Ceiling fan pull chain connected but does not click on


There is a pull chain switch inside the fan termination housing. you will have to take the little cover off and remove the switch. it has 2 small screws with wire landed under them. Turn off the power at the breaker before working on the switch. take this little ****** out and put in a new one. you can get them at the Home Depot or equivelant. it don't matter if the new switch is a little bigger but it still has to fit. use some judgement here. wire it in the place of the old one, turn the power back on at the breaker and it should be ready to go. Presto.

Broken pull cord for the 3 speed fan (Hunter kiw profile)


Turn off circuit breaker to fan. Remove bottom cover plate. Remove thumb nut holding switch in place. Examine switch. Places where wires push in should be numbered. Write down number and coresponding wire color. Remove wires from switch. Take switch with you. Walmart carries some switches but if you can't find it there go to a Locke supply store. Know how many speeds the fan iswhen you go looking. Reassamble in reverse order.

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!
