In the hampton bay ceiling fan, the pull chain broke. i brought a new one and when i took the fan apart the wires were already dangling. i brought a 3 switch and do not know where to place the colored wires. can some one help with this issue?
There is no one answer to this problem since Hampton Bay fans are made by several different manufacturers. Having just been through this problem, may I offer what I think is the fastest and easiest way for a fix. I started with a call to Hampton Bay at
(800) 749-3267 and was told to call (877) 527-0313, which was a Home Depot contact.The very pleasant women sent me to
1-979-553-3260. This last number is for an outfit in Texas, Gulf Coast Fans. They listened to problem and suggested that I send the broken switch to them, which I did, cost less than $2.00.
Two days later they called and suggested I order a switch from them and gave me the switch number. I ordered the next day and received replacement in two days. This worked very well. Only problem is that the cost from Gulf Coast is a bit high. After trying all combinations myself before contacting these guys and buying a switch from Home Depot which did not work, I was willing to pay a bit more. Good luck

The cause to the problem was replacing a HUNTER fan switch with a Hampton Bay switch. Before removing the old switch, I noted and marked the color and position of the 4 wires. I then duplicated the connections to the new switch.
But the wire positions of Hampton Bay vs Hunter are not identical, therefore 2 wires
The correct way is to note the color of the wires with the corresponding NUMBER
marked on the switches, then duplicate this on the new one.
