Product Overview

Fan switches can break over time. Replacing the fan switch is a cost-effective alternative to buying a new fan. The Westinghouse 3-Speed Ceiling Fan Switch is for use in dual-capacitor ceiling fans. This 4-wire unit switch gives you complete control over your fan's rotation speed. The RU and CSA-certified switch can handle a fan maximum of three amps at 250 volts or six amps at 125 volts. It comes with an antique brass pull chain and 2-foot braided cord. Complete installation instructions are included. Before replacing your existing fan switch, be sure to write down the color and exact position of each wire. This will be needed when installing the new replacement switch. Product reference number 77288.

Customer Questions & Answers

How do I know if I have a single or dual capictor fan. My Fan is a hunter bay and I do not see any model name or number on top of trhe fan

My Fan is a hunter bay and I do not see any model name or number on top of the fan. I have looked repeatedly for this information on the fan and it is not there.
Asked by: John
Look closely at the electronic components in the fan in the same general area as the switch to be replaced. Any capacitors will be marked with the capacitance value in microFarads, the symbol for which is "μF". If you only see one value, like "5μF", then you have a single-capacitor fan. If there are two, like "2μF" and "5μF", then you have a dual-capacitor fan. The appearance of capacitors can vary a lot and often more than one can be packaged together. In my fan, they were housed in a small, black, rectangular box-like package and marked with two different capacitance values. Keep in mind that it's possible your fan could have one, two, or even three capacitors.

I have a 3-speed Hampton and the chain broke inside the switch. I installed the Westinghouse replacement 77288 and now the fan wil not stop.

You need the Westinghouse 77286 - single capacitor.

3 speed fan switch Single Capacitor vs Dual Capacitor

How can you tell and what's the difference or does it really matter can one replace the other ? In the package they look the same!

Can you tell me how to L-1,2,3 wiring should be color coded?

I have a Hunter Fan and I broke the pull chain. I replaced it with the Westinghouse 7728800 switch, but now it's only operating on 2 speeds and won't turn off...
Asked by: Do4sef
I wouldnt cut any wires until the part is bought.bring home and wire it as it sits in the fan.one wire at a time.

Antique Brass Replacement 3-Speed Fan Switch is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from I bought this Westinghouse 77288 Dual Capacitor switch to replace a broken switch on a Hampton Ba... I bought this Westinghouse 77288 Dual Capacitor switch to replace a broken switch on a Hampton Bay Ceiling fan. I tested this switch with a multimeter and the 4 settings were: L-1-2-3, L-2-3, L-1-3, L-1-2. This was not what I wanted so I will return. But thought I would document it here in case it helps anyone else. In my case I want the 4 settings to be Off, L-1, L-2-3, L-3. I originally had a KTE 3089 Circuit M switch. I couldn't find one of those so I think I'll get a Zing Ear ZE-268S6 which implements the same. By the way here's info on a couple of other switches I tried. Both of these switches implement Off, L-1, L-2, L-3 so didn't work for me. Westinghouse 77286 & Harbor Breeze 0033905.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a replacement for Hunter ceiling fan: Well Tec E116997 I bought this for replacement for a hunter ceiling fan; Well Tec E116997. It did not work properly. I had to return. The correct replacement for the wel tec is either Zing Ear ZE 268s6 or Lowe's 33905. I bought the 33905. That worked find for me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Incomplete Home Depot product spec I bought your fan switch hoping that all manufacturers have commonality with the 4 wire contacts. But they are NOT. Hunter fans use position 1 as off, position 2 with L connected to pin 1, position 3 with L connected to pins 2 and 3, and position 4 with L connected to pin 3. I suggest you put a schematic symbol or functional representation of the Westinghouse switch on your spec page. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked 1st 3 switches didnot work,but got the right model# for my ceing fan, finally. It works like the original. Took forever to find the right part because the China Mfg quit making the part. Fotunatley I found SwitchCo web site with a cross reference table. So was able to order a Westinghouse replacement for my old KTE switch.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not work for me. I'm a pretty handy guy, and I've wasted valuable time replacing the existing piece of plastic junk switches on 2 fans in my home due to the pull chains breaking off up inside the switches. One fan a Hunter - the other a Hampton Bay. After connecting these replacement switches properly (Correct colors in correct holes, good solid connections) I was left with 1 fan speed only on each fan. Repeated pulls of new chain did not change the speed. Thanks to some internet research, the recommended replacement switch at Lowe's (#0033905) worked perfectly. I have told the family to pull chain GENTLY! These are cheaply made as well. If I got the wrong thing at Home Depot, I apologize for the bad review since I see that some folks have had some success with this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Note this does NOT replace a Zing Ear 208s6. Just wanted to note that this is a Zing Ear 268S2 (stamped on the item as such). A 268S2 is NOT the same as a 268S6, which is a replacement for a 208S6. If you have a 208S6, like I do, or a 268S6, and try to use this as a replacement you'll find that you have 4 speeds and no off. You can find details at the zingear dot com website.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Well tec E116997 My original ceiling fan had switch Well tec E116997 with four positions marked L, 3, 1, 2 (counter-clockwise). The Home Depot website states this is the replacement switch. When I got this switch installed, and cycled through the positions I had low, high, high, high - no medium and no off. The correct switch is the single capacitor - Westinghouse 77286 with four positions marked L, 1, 2, 3. I matched the wires to the new positions and the ceiling fan works in all four positions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works, what more do you want? Hooked it up today, didn't have the old one to match color coded wire so only had to switch 2 wires after installation for the proper fan speed order. Works fine but it's plastic so how long it will last is yet to be determined. No idea what make my fan is but it has a dual capacitor block: 1.5uF and 2.5uF. Mine works properly with the L: black 1: yellow (1.5uF) 2: purple (2.5uF) and 3: orange (full power to direction switch), not sure if this is electrically logical but that's the way it works. Use a tiny screwdriver to push down tabs if needed to insert and remove tinned wired, be gentle. It's also a good idea, after shutting off power to circuit, to ground the capacitor leads for a couple seconds lest you want to have a shocking experience.
