First write down which color wire goes in which slot on switch.Turn power off! Disconnect wires from defective switch by inserting a paper clip or something a little bigger into the wire connection.Then press the spring down and release the wire to insert in new HUNTER switch. DO NOT CUT WIRES!Call 1-888-830-1326 with model # to order the correct switch.
My Hunter fan uses a Zing-Ear ZE-268S6 switch. This is NOT a standard switch! It connects L to 2 AND 3 for medium speed. It is best to order the exact switch if possible. Hunter wants to sell you the entire bottom assembly (probably expensive).I found the exact switch online at:
for $6.80 plus $4.95 shipping. I bought an extra which didn't increase the shipping - worked great. Hunter ZE-268S6 ceiling fan connection colors: L=black; 3=green; 1=grey; 2=brown. If you need a different switch on their page, just click the Edit menu, then Find, type your part number in the box, and click Next.
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.
