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.

Re: Trying to replace 3 speed ceiling fan switch
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.

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..

You have 3 options. You can connect the fan blue and the fan black to the red ceiling wire. Then you will need to control the fan and light with the strings. The wall switch will turn off everything. Option 2 is make sure that there is a switch wired to the black ceiling wire. If there is a switch I would check to make sure the switch is working. Option 3 is to purchase a remote control unit for both and leave the wall switch to shutoff the whole unit. Hope this helps.
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.
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 !
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.
