Rated 1 out of 5Â by JackNimble Awful product
The directions are vague and do not explain how to wire product. The inputs also do not hold wires, or will not release them. Went through 2 of these that do not work. Will have to tape wires into place. Terrible.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MakingDoWithLess Does the job
Seems equivalent to a Zing Ear ZE-238S switch in my unknown-manufacturer's 3-speed ceiling fan. (Off, high, med, low speeds. No light. Markings L-1-2-3 counterclockwise on body, black wire at 3)
Had to research by myself to figure out this was the equivalent model. Would be nice if Home Depot made it easier to cross-reference parts.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by isctg My previous complaint may not be fault of this switch
So I called hunter customer service and it turns out that perhaps the reason this thing is not working because the switch that Hunter uses is actually proprietary, so the only way to get a replacement switch is through Hunter. However, I wouldn't give this switch a great rating because after only several months of use I broke the chain while pulling on it.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by JimmyJohn Hard to insert existing wires into the switch; instructions are vague
The instructions are very vague about how to actually connect the existing wires to this switch. After a couple of hours of trying I had to call an electrician. The trick is to force the wires into the slots on the sides with a small screwdriver (the paper clip the instructions suggested did not work for me). The little holes on the top of the unit are for releasing the wires.... I had thought that was where you inserted the paper clip when inserting the wires, so I was actually loosening the connections. This product could be designed so much better.! Why? Why should it be so hard? Even the electrician said its tricky to install. There are a bunch of YouTube videos and instruction on the internet but none of them cover this aspect.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by bill1 Not for 3 Speed Hunter Fans
Use Westinghouse Switch 77021 for Hunter 3 speed fans.
