Trying to replace 3 speed ceiling fan switch

My ceiling fan is a Harbor Breeze, Lakeside II Ceiling fan. I don't know where the wires attach to the new switch. I have a black, purple, grey and brown wire. Which wire connects to the L, 1, 2, & 3 positions on the new switch.

    Yes, I have a multi meter and No, I don't think I know how to use it on live wires.

    Thank you so much! It worked right on the first try! I'm amazed.

    Hello,

    Do you have a multimeter and are you familiar with using one on live wires?

    After I installed my Harbor Breeze remote unit, I cannot get the ceiling cap to fit. I checked the orientation of the remote unit, and it is correct. Any ideas?

Hello,

The black goes to the L connection the others are a guess. You can do this two ways. Connect the colored wires in any sequence and then see what switch sequence give you high and lowest, the other one will be medium. Once you determine that, mark the wires with a piece of masking tape as high, medium and low. Otherwise you connect them, turn power on and use a multimeter to see which color gives you the highest voltage and which gives you lowest. Since you aren't comfortable using live wires and a meter, go with the first option and use the process of elimination to find the wires giving you the speeds you need to find the highest and lowest. Next, you need to determine how your switch sequence works. First pull has to give you highest speed. so you may end up wiring them in reverse if your first attempt is backwards. There is a reason the first pull needs to be highest, it powers up the motor so you can then chose a lower setting. A low setting first will over tax your motor and wear it out eventually as it has to work harder at first.

Let me know if you need further clarification and perhaps this is all you need to get fixed.

Regards,
Worldvet
ps I checked on the Internet of a wiring diagram and I bet you did tok all to no avail.

I broke a shade on my harbor breeze lighthouse II ceiling fan, will you find the model number so I can order one?


Wrong way round, YOU tell us the model number and type and we tell you where to get the shade. You can see the fan in your house, but we can't. That makes it really difficult for us. Some shades are plain, some are fluted, some have patterns.

All is not lost though. Go here and take your pick. They all sell them including Harbour Breeze themselves..

Westinghouse 3speed fan switch 77288


It's the westinghouse switch. Many results on search. I just wasted 2 hours playing switching wires all combos. Others suggested the switch from Lowe's. Harbor breeze #0033905 . Plug wires back in as you listed Black L, Grey 1, Brown 2, Purple 3. Works perfectly for $3.98 plus tax.

Others said you can call Hampton Bay and get the replacement also.

Wiring diagram for harbor breeze celing fan


The colors of the wires in the Harbor Breeze ceiling fan kits tell you what their functions are. The black wire is hot for the fan, the white is a common wire for both the fan and the light kit, green is ground and blue is hot for the light kit. locate the black and blue wires from the ceiling fan and connect them to the black wire inside the electrical junction box by twisting an orange wire connector onto all three wires. Locate the white wire from the ceiling fan and the white wire from the junction box and attach the two wires together with a wire connector. Connect the bare copper wire onto the green wire from the ceiling fan mounting bracket by twisting an orange wire connector onto the two wires. Push all wiring inside the electrical box. good-day !

Your voltage is probably too low, probably a bad wire or source. Let me know if it worked.

Installation of wall remote for harbor breeze ceiling fans


One black wire on the switch hooked to the black sources wire. The other black wire on the switch hooked black up to the fan. The green on the switch wire goes to the bare wire. If there is bare wire you can use the white wire.
