ok. hope this helps, use a switch from FANTEC. it'll be called a 3 speed fan switch. CAM #5 No. 21105. this will also say Single Layer 3 or 4 wire application SPLIT continuity function.. THE SPLIT PART IS VITAL. now when wire it. the BLACK wire goes in SLOT 3. ORANGE wire goes in L. PURPLE wire goes in slot 2, ORANGE wire goes in slot 1. IF, and i repeat IF this does not work for you ensure you have a SPLIT CONTINUITY FUNCTION switch. NO MATTER WHAT the BLACK wire WILL go into slot 3. the ORANGE wire WILL go in slot L. switch the orange and purple wires only. ENSURE POWER IS OFF WHEN CONNECTING OR DISCONNECTING WIRES. YOU WILL GET THE SNOT ZAPPED OUTTA YOU IF YOU DON'T. please post if this helps.

It takes 2 testers.
Continuity tester has battery and light bulb.
Use regular tester to find Hot wire that feeds old-switch.
Remove old-switch from fan
Strip back wires
Separate wires so they can be tested.
Turn on power.
Test each wire to bare copper wire -or- to green wire -or- to metal part of fan
One of the fan wires will light up tester.
This is the Hot wire.
Mark Hot wire.
Mark which color wire on old-switch went to the hot wire.
Use continuity tester on old-switch.
You know which wire is hot-on-old-switch
Pull chain and test hot-on-old-switch to both of the other wires.
When tester lights up, mark this wire.
Pull chain again and test hot-on-old-switch to both of the other wires.
When tester lights up, mark this wire.
At some point when you pull the chain, the tester will light up both the other wires.
This is the high speed.
Use continuity tester on new-switch.
Repeat the test for old-switch.
Identify which wire will be the Hot wire by process of elimination.
Mark this wire.
Identify high-speed wire.
Pull chain again, and tester lights up on medium speed.
Pull chain again, and tester lights up on low speed
Identify these wires and match pattern to the old-switch

If by a 3-way switch, you mean a switch with 4 steps of brilliance: off, low, medium, and high when used with a 3-way bulb. The black wire of the switch is connected to incoming power wiring hot wire. Most often also black. The red switch wire connects to the center contact of the lamp socket. The blue wire connects to the small pin connection that is physically between the center connection and the screw shell of the lamp socket. The screw shell is connected to the incoming white wire of the house wiring.

I do not understand why you would want to open the switch. Are you asking how to get to the switch inside the fan housing? If so, you access the switch by removing either 2 screws on the bottom or 3 screws on the side. You remove the switch by unscrewing the brass finial holding the switch in place by turning counterclockwise. You need only a phillips screwdriver and no special tools. WARNING: Before you disconnect any of the wires write down how they are connected and make sure you have the right switch for your fan. They are not all the same.

The BLUE wire is for a light. The red is the "traveler" and the black is power.
Did you use the blue wire without a light? If you did, you wired it hot, full time.
