Hi,
That switch going bad is a very common problem....any Lowes or HD will have a new switch kit as well as many local hardware stores....
the installation is fairly simple, but make sure to mark wires before dis-assembly

How to fix pull chain for lights on a ceiling fan?


You will probably have to replace the switch that is controlled by the chain. You will need one withe the same number of wires coming out of it. Find out the type of fan and google it. If it is a cheap fan I would replace the entire unit, it if is also old.

I did not make a diagram when replacing the light switch


Red from switch goes to two blacks, blue from switch goes to two blacks and the black wire goes thru top of light and attaches to blue fan light wire. If you want a good fan, look for blade pitch(13 degree or higher)Or CFM's above 5500 on high.

Ceiling fan does not work but lights do


Could be either or if you installed it yourself I would recheck the wiring.................If that is correct it could be the motor..........

another thing I have seen sometimes is the pull switch doesn't reset, you can try pushing the pull chain inwards and see if you hear a click, if you do, then the switch isn't resetting after its been pulled. I have that problem with 2 ceiling fans myself, and all I gotta do is just push the chain inward and reset the switch.
Do it with the power off, if you want to try, just to be safe, if you hear the click, the pull the chain again and listen for a click, then turn the power on. If that works than it is the switch. If not then it is either the wiring or the motor.

If unsure contact a electrician or a trusted handyman

Hello, I currently have a celing lamp in my kitchen. There is a little cord you pull to turn it off. The onlything is, is that the cord is not working and i dont know how to turn my lamp off if not to...


The lamp has on-off pull-chain switch.
You can buy replacement pull-chain switch at hardware store.
Buy the pull-chain switch that has two wires.
Buy two yellow or orange wire nuts.

Switch off breaker.
Take apart light.
Remove old pull-chain. Strip back the wires if needed, twist wires together.
Connect new pull-chain switch using wire nuts.

I thought I put the wires from the old switch to the new switch correctly but now the fan does not work. The lights come on but no fan.


The pull chain for fan and the pull chain for lights are wired separately.
If you are talking about a wall switch, add a comment with clear description of old switch and new switch, screw colors on each switch, and color of each wire for possible help.

Open following link possible illustration of your pull-chain fan switch.

Need a replacement, where do I get one?


If I understand correctly you have a 3-speed fan.
And you need a 3-speed replacement pull-chain-type switch

Lowes carries 3 speed fan switches in the light fixture department.
These switches have multiple wires.
At any given time, there is one-and-only-one wire that connects to power from wall switch.
Lets call this the Power wire.
As you pull the chain, the power passes through the switch and goes to one-and-only-one of the other wires.
The other wires connect to windings in the motor.
The different motor windings control fan speed.

The key to replacing the switch is recording where each wire went before you disconnect old switch.
Once you know which of these wires is the Power wire, then you can test other wires with a continuity tester.
You also know the pull-chain sequence is OFF - HIGH - Medium - Low
Mark wires in fan and mark wires on old switch.
Pull out old switch.
Use regular electrical tester to find which wire in the fan is the power wire (separate wires, turn on power and test each wire to metal part of fan)
Now test the switch wires.
The switch is out of the fan.
You marked the wires so you know which wire is power wire.
Put the continuity tester on the power wire.
Test power wire to each of the other wires.
Click the switch and test to each of the other wires. Mark which wire lights up continuity tester.
Click the switch and test again. Mark which wire lights up continuity tester.
Click again, until each wire is marked in the sequence.
When you click the switch and no wire lights up, then that is the Switch OFF position.
Do the same test on the new pull-chain switch.
Connect the wires to match your testing.

Can't Find Correct Pull Chain Switch I have a new bathroom wall sconce that has a two lights - a regular bulb and an LED night light. The pull chain switch for it broke and no one at Lowes or Home Depot...


It's called a "momentary switch, normally closed". This is sometimes abbreviated Mom Switch, NC. But I have never seen one with a pull chain before. Maybe you can find one with a toggle that you can attach a chain to.
Good luck.

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.
