When I turn on the ceiling fan on it trips the breaker.
If you have a volt ohm meter you can test, the fan/light itself to see if there is a short circuit from the hot wire to ground or to the neutral. If there is a light hook up do the same for it. You might want to try just the light or just the motor connections to eliminate the bad circuit or faulty wiring. In some homes you will find that you have 2 hot wires, one switched and one not switched so watch for that because you could be connecting 2 hot wires together which will trip a ckt. breaker. if you are sure that you have proper wiring not, skinned or anything and the motor does trip the breaker then you have your solution.

Broken power switch
Looks like you already found it, (23852), if you have a brown Original. Usually the labels are on the top of the motor housing. Also might be etched into the metal name plate on the side of the motor.
