Did you get a wiring diagram with the switch/fan? This should tell you which is which.

Each manufacturer has different color coding. If you didn't get a diagram, contact the manufacturer for instructions.

Good luck,

Hunter ceiling fan, replacing speed switch, what wire goes to the L, 1, 2, and 3?


I can only guess since I don't know what model or what color wires you have. Here's wiring for single stack switch on some Hunters;

L- black
1 - grey
2 - brown
3 - green
Hope this helps.

Westinghouse 3speed fan switch 77288


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.

Fan switch are LJY-280A and E198635


I have a Hampton Bay indoor/outdoor ceiling fan with 3 speed fan switch WU Pin LJY280A, E198635. It is a L-3-1-2 (ccw) switch with purple, grey, black and brown wires. The wiring is different than most on web. The L is not black, 2 is black. My wiring for the switch is L-Purple, 3-Grey, 1-Brown, 2-Black.
Found schematic on web that I think is correct:
Off-none,
Hi-L,1 4uF,
Med.-L,2,3 10uF & 4uF,
Low-L,3 5uF & 4uF.
I hope this helps someone.

3-speed fan switch broke on Hunter model 28072, cat. 300 fan. Found replacement switch at Lowes, but wiring colors are completely different from manual. What color wires go into L, 1, 2, 3 positions...


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:

http://www.kenselectronics.com/lists/switches.htm#Pull%20chain

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.
