I called King of Fans and the rep that I spoke with gave me the correct wiring for the 3 speed switch:
The problem is that after I wired it this way I am getting the same result (off on 3 settings and a motor hum on 1 setting). So, either the Westinghouse switch that I bought at Home Depot is not compatible or it is the capacitor. The saga continues.
