Wiring a three speed fan switch
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My daughter called me the other day and said Dad the ceiling fan in the kitchen is not working only the light works. I went over and removed the three screws that hold the light and pull chain for the fan down and found that the fan control switch had snapped open and all 4 wires had popped out. The snap clips on each side of the switch had broken off. I went down to Home Depot in the ceiling department and found the switch I was looking for. It said for a four wire ceiling fan. OK, know lets put it back together. First of all if you look at the new switch you should see four holds were the wires will be pushed into. The black wire in the fan is the hot or load wire, this wire is hot whenever the wall switch to the fan is turned on. Put this wire in the hole that is marked “L” this stands for load. Now with this switch in the off position the fan will not work until you pull the chain. The other three holes are marked #1, #2 and #3. On most fans #1 is usually high speed. # 2 medium and #3 low speed. What you now have to determine is what wires are high medium and low. The easiest way to do this is before you put any of the wires back into the new switch is to FIRST MAKE SURE NO POWER IS GOING TO THE FAN. Then simply take one of the colored wires at a time and twist it together with the black hot wire.
Turn the power back on to the fan and knot the fans speed. Do this with all three wires one at a time until you can determine which wire is high speed. Note the color of the wire and mark it down on paper.(Example; blue wire high speed.) Do this with the other two wires to determine there speed. Once you have the speed of each wire you can reassemble the new switch.
Black wire (Load) goes in hole marked L. High speed wire goes in hole marked # 1. Medium speed goes in hole marked #2 and low speed goes in hole # 3. MAKE SURE THE POWER TO THE FAN IS TURNED OFF WHILE YOU ASSEMBLE THE NEW SWITCH.
For those of you that have all these wired hooked up right and still the fan won't work I would then look for an open neutral wire. It should be a white wire. Check to see if all the wires are securly attached.
Good luck. One more word of advice. If you're not sure on what you are doing when it comes to electrical wiring then please do not attempt to do this or any other electrial work yourself. Call a licensed electrian. Any mistakes on your part could void your home owners insurance in case of a fire.

Most likely you have the wrong switch. You ncan't go to Home depot or Lowes and buy a generic switch off the rack and expect it to work (no matter what they tell you)Call Hunter & order switch #6378401000. 1-888-830-1326

My old ceiling fan capacitor has A B C D on the back , the new capacitor has 1 2 3 4, how do I connect the new one????


I just changed out an old ADCB (172-90-001 / 1-81-M) fan speed switch with a L123 3 speed switch (Westinghouse 77286). My fan was only 2 speed but the 3 speed switch was all the Home Depot had in stock. So I knew I would have OFF occurring twice in the pull sequence. Its an old Hunter fan that came with the house.

A-Unused
B-Went to 1 (Blue Wire)
C-Went to 2 (Red Wire)
D-Went to L (Black Wire)

I originally put B (the Blue Wire) into spot 3, leaving 1 unused. But that made the pull order go OFF-OFF-LOW-HIGH.

So moving the Blue Wire to the 1 slot resulted in OFF-HIGH-LOW-OFF

Hope this helps!

The three stage rotary switch, that controls fan speed, broke. I bought a replacement switch at Home Depot for $4.00. This switch has four wire connection points, labeled L, 1, 2, and 3. The lower fan...


Hi Nicholas. My thoughts on this without being able to see the unit. One position on the switch is for the power to come into it, probably the L position or "Line In/Power In." The first position on the switch is most likely the "OFF" position, so I would assume no wire out be connected to it. Most likely the 1 position. I think it makes sense to assume that the two wires that you see UNCONNECTED are the actual power in wires to the fan, one for low speed and one for high speed, positions 2 and 3 on the switch. The only way to verify this would be to wire the switch with one of the wires to terminal 2 and one to terminal 3 on the switch. If the fan runs fastest when the switch is in the number 2 position, the wires most likely need to be switched. Again, just my thoughts. Let me know if you have questions.

Our hunter fan won't work on high speed any longer, low and medium speed work fine, when clicked on high - it only goes at medium


Sounds like the variable speed switch may be worn out.
You should be able to purchase replacement switch at the local home depot- type store in the electrical supplies.
Trying to get an exact match to replace may be a bit difficult, but a similar 3 speed switch should work just fine.

Typically the old and new switches have no relative relationship to each other .. One way to figure this out is shut off the power and then using the black power wire attach each speed wire to it and turn power back on to observe the speed .. mark the wire with the speed 1, 2, 3, .repeat this untill all the wires are identified .. . then you can put the wires on the appropriate terminations on the new switch ..

Hunter speed control problem


I have the exact same problem. Called Hunter's tech support and they confirmed the capacitor must be bad. This is the black box that has 4 wires going to the switch. They are sending me a new one for under $12. I haven't received it yet, but the wires from it going to the switch can be removed from the switch by shoving a paper clip along side the wire, this'll release the spring clip holding the wire in. Not sure, but I may have to cut and wire nut any wires that go elsewhere.

I recommend you call them too and as long as you have the 5 digit model number (usually on top of fan) they should be able to get you what you need.

P.S. it is highly unlikely that it is in the switch. I tried replacing it with one from Home Depot and I actually got Low-Off-High, which is worse. The Hunter tech support guy said you can't use after market switches with their fans.

I just had a Hampton Bay fan installed, and the pull chain will not change the speed. It stays on high speed.


Replacement switches can be purchased at Orchard supply, Ace Hardware, Lowes, or Home Depot. After checking the wiring at the switch - connections made during fan installation - and no faults are found, switch should do it.

Fan speed switch is broken.


Home depot sells replacement switches.  First take a look at what you need in your fan.  By the exact or similar speed switch.  Then remove noting placement of wires and put new switch in.  If your down to one speed that is the capacitor.  Call King of Fans and they will send you one free.  This seems to be a common problem.  This is the second time I have replaced this capacitor.
