Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Clagavian Very Practical switches
The Hunter slide switches are attractive an practical since they add a fourth speed of ceiling fan operation. they are however a bit more flimsy than I had expected. Time and long term use will tell how well they hold up.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by pomfritz yup, knobs break easy
The fan knob broke off within a year. It truly is a very weak design and wonder how something like this gets approved and worse yet, not fixed.
Everything else about this works well and I really need the low speed for the work we do in the room with the fan on.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AAT Poor Design
This switch has a high rate of failure due to the knobs coming off and the knobs are not sold separately. I have not experienced this problem as of yet but the switch has tiny knobs and they are hard to move - I can see how the knob would fail. I would have chosen another switch but I couldn't find one that would work with my fan
I love The Home Depot but I hope they read this response and review the quality of of the product they choose to have in their stores. I would think that if a product has a problem where the knobs break and come off they would at least offer replacement knobs.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Alyssa Hunter 4 speed fan control wall switch
I replaced two existing 3 speed Hunter fan switches, because the fan control levers broke off from switch. The 4 speed switch has similar flimsy fan control levers, plus a robust on/off switch at the bottom. Once I set the speed to the desired setting, I use the on/off switch to control the fan. I minimize my need to touch the speed control lever, so these switches should last longer. If either fails, I will replace with another brand that is more robust. I am surprised Hunter puts out these flimsy products.

We have about 6 of these in the home when we bought it. ALL of the plastic knobs have fallen off and there are no replacements. I sent Hunter an email and they said, sorry we don't offer them. Well now I have to replace all those switches with a different brand. This is very bad product design and support.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Vette Excellent purchase
The dual fan and light control was really easy to install and control the fan speed and lighting very well. Controls must be operated carefully but they function well.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RoyL Cheap, not inexpensive
The plastic caps on both slide levers broke off within two days of use. I think the sliding mechanisms were to tight or something because the levers were hard to move. Since the levers are made of plastic, it didn't take but a few uses before for the first one broke off. The second broke the same afternoon. I actually spent more time installing this than using it. I bought a more expensive but better made product to replace this one. Please don't waste your money on this product!

I bought (2) of these switches in August 2008 and its Sept. 19, 2008 and I'm already replacing it. It shorted out for some reason and melted on one side. The electrician says it must have been defaulted in some way because all the wiring was fine, everything was checked. Not sure what to recommend for a replacement because I'm looking now because I really don't want to reorder the same switch again. Look around before ordering this one.
