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.

How to fix pull chain for lights on a ceiling fan?


You will probably have to replace the switch that is controlled by the chain. You will need one withe the same number of wires coming out of it. Find out the type of fan and google it. If it is a cheap fan I would replace the entire unit, it if is also old.

I have a Hunter fan and now the pull chain that turns the lights on and off has stopped working. What do I need to do to fix this?


You need to buy & install a new light switch. Should be a two wire switch that you should be able to find at Home Depot, Lowes or a real fan store.

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!

Westinghouse Lighting 3speed Ceiling Fan Switch 7707500: I just replace the speed control switch in my Hunt...


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 ..

ANy electric store will have different switches (lowes and home depot do too) just make sure you bring the old one with you. The colors of the wires shouldn't make too much of a difference just the amount

Hi .. you can get a generic replacement ceiling fan switch at Home Depoot or Lowes. Look in their light section, where they have the lamp parts. Please do not disconnect the old switch before you have the new one. Then you need to know what wire does what on the old one and transfer it to the new one.

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.

Pull Chains Replacement


Replacements are available at Home Depot and Lowes. This is a regular 4-wire single-layer switch.

Mark the old wires, so you know which ports they go to in the switch (marked L, 1, 2, and 3) -- then remove the old wires by pressing a paper clip into the hole of each wire while pulling firmly on the wire. Then just push the wires into the new switch, into the marked holes.

I hope this helps! If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask!
