Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SteveT Does not work on Hunter fan
This switch is for fans which have wires which control each speed individually. My Hunter fan had one wire for high speed and two wires each for low speed. Combined, the two low speed wires make medium speed. These switches are made by Zing Ear and the proper Zing Ear # for this kind of fan is ZE208S6. The switch is black and green. I finally found one at a fan store and had to show them the model #. It works perfectly now.

Ceiling FAN SWITCH pull-chain broke off at motor casing. Disassembled and cutoff the four [colored]wires to old switch. Took to HD and purchased this replacement switch. Wish I had purchased switch prior to cutting wires. Instructions explained how to easily 'remove' and reinstall wiring from old switch... duh!
Installed switch, reassembled, and ceiling fan performing as good as new - perhaps even better.

It was easy to remove the old switch and replace with this one. Works great.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Keithredbeard .Epic failure... stupid switch.
Following the instructions to the letter, I found this switch more challenging to replace than it should have been. It was particularly difficult to secure the wires into it. I could have replaced the entire fan in nearly the amount of time it took to replace this switch. More upsetting is the fact that once installed, it worked on one speed, (medium), only and otherwise simply turned on/off. Perhaps it is defective... but I will not bother with the frustration of replacing it again. I would have been better off replacing the fan and would have if the owner did not have an attachment to the old one. I have been a professional contractor for nearly 15yrs and have been working with my hands and tools for much longer than that. Next time and every time, I encounter a fan that is not working because of a switch, I will push to replace the fan.

Every fan depending on year has different color wires making it impossible to know if it is right for your fan. In this case it would run at only one speed not all three as designed, Had to return.

Quite hard to install in existing fan due to location and original connections. Would not recommend for average home owner.

Make sure you write down which color wire connects to which letter/number before you take the old switch off. Be aware that the capacitor may be charged even with the breaker off. If you touch 2 of the leads together you will get a pop/spark. IT took me 20-30 minutes to get this installed and working as before.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Koda Fixed my ceiling fan.
Fixed my ceiling fan after the old pull-chain broke off inside the switch. A pain to install, but that's mostly because you're working over your head, in a tight space with lots of wires (not the fault of the switch).
