Customer Questions & Answers

Is this a 4 wire switch?

Example: I have looked at the manual and can't figure out what I did wrong.
Asked by: Butch
Yes. The connectors are marked 1, 2, 3, G.

Why are there no wires on the replacement switch?

The old Hunter switch I'm trying to replace has four (4) wires. This is a three (3) speed fan with no light.
Asked by: Bubba
These switches are designed to be installed without cutting wires. Remove each wire from the old switch by inserting a straightened paperclip along the wire to free it. Then insert the wire into the slot with the same number or letter on the new switch.

How do you get the wires to attach to the switch? They keep falling out!

Asked by: FanRepair
I just did this job and I found that the spring clips that held the wires in the old switch easily released them when I inserted a tiny screwdriver in the hole right alongside the wire. To insert them in the new switch, first determine which side the wire hole goes to, to the left or right as you are looking straight down into the hole. It doesn't go straight in. If you are not sure , you might try to gently, very gently, insert a paper clip or tiny screwdriver to see which way the hole goes. Then inserting the tinned wire tip in that same direction is easy and you can push it all the way in until it reaches the wire insulation. Give it a slight tug to check that it grabbed the wire.

bought a new switch, and it doesn't work. I rewired new same as the old one, whats up.

Asked by: 1234
You need the correct type of switch, i.e. one with the same internal "switching pattern" (i.e., which poles are connected as the switch is moved from position to position). The switch works in conjunction with the capacitor(s) in the fan to produce the different speeds of the fan. The capacitor(s) deliver the correct microfarads (uf) to the appropriate switch poles according to the pattern of the switch. If your switch isn't physically broken, then the problem is very likely a bad capacitor (usually manifest by "bubbling" of the plastic case). The easiest way to make sure you have the correct switch is to buy a replacement that is the same as the original (manufacturer and model). If you can't buy the same make/model switch, then make sure the replacement switch has the same "switching pattern". The typical pattern for a 3-speed fan is Off/L+1/L+2/L+3, but there are other patterns such as Off/L+1+2+3/L+2+3/L+3 or Off/L+1, L+2+3, L+3.) for off, high, medium, and low fan speeds in that sequence. If you have to replace the capacitor(s), just make sure the number of capacitors (built into the same small plastic case) is the same and the microfarad ratings shown on the side match up. For example, 5uf+6uf for a 4-wire dual capacitor or 4.5uf+5uf+5uf for a 5-wire triple capacitor. There are standard wire colors, but different colors are OK so long as the correct uf is connected to each switch pole. Make sure you diagram the wire connections and colors between the capacitor and switch (and note the uf connected to each switch pole from the capacitor if you don't have corresponding colors) before you disassemble things.

Make sure the colors and corresponding numbers on the old switch are exactly the same on the new one. The numbering sequence is different on the replacement switch as opposed to the original (Hampton Bay fan in this case). Likewise you have to push the existing wires into the compression slots on the replacement switch, so the ends have to be tinned and rigid to do this.

I was impressed with the assistance and knowledge provided by the HD manager of the lighting department. It was simple to replace after following the suggestions of the HD manager. His suggestion was to remove one wire from the old unit and install into the replacement until all wires were moved. Reassembled the fixture to the fan with no problems. I have had it about two weeks and is working fine.

I bought two different switches from HD (Westinghouse 77286 and 77288.) Neither matched my unit. I had to go to the I-net to find the right one. Be careful when replacing fan switches. There are many different contact patterns. If you know this is the proper switch for your unit, then I recommend it.

Exact fit for replacing a 2 year old 4-wire switch that had a broken pull chain. Easy replacement. Just insert the wires in the same spots as the originals. It would be nice if the packaging said '4-wire' as the other switches available were '2-wire'.

Unscrewed the bottom light switch and once off, unsnapped the electrical connection. Cut the four multi-colored wires from the old switch, making sure to leave as much wire length as possible. Then shaved the four wire ends and then inserted the four wire ends firmly into the contacts of the new switch, pressing down and in. Snapped the electrical connection for the light switch back into place and reattached the light fixture to the bottom of the fan (via three small insert screws). The new 3-speed switch worked like a charm. Took me about 15 minutes to replace.

Not sure there are any other choices when you need to replace the pull-cord on the fan. This switch is terribly poorly made, plastic junk that you need to be so lucky to get the wires to 'catch' and work. Shocking how everything is made like garbage these days and there is no other option out there. I wasn't going to replace an entire ceiling fan just because of this switch, but trust me I did think about it. Good luck. Watch Youtube videos on how to actually install this replacement switch because without the video the instructions are worthless totally.

I bought two different switches because I was not certain whether y fan had one capacitor or two. I used the dual capacitor switch first. It worked for only two options, high speed and low speed, but not for the other two, medium speed and off. I took it out and used the switch with single capacitor. It works alright. There is no way of knowing whether one's fan, bought probably many years ago, has one or two capacitors. Better to buy both and avoid another trip to the store if the first one doesn't work.

Before removing the old switch, mark the wires to match the marks on the old switch (1,2,3,G). Take the old switch to the store to match the switch; there are several types at the store, and even more on the web page. Just shove the wires into the new switch and it is ready to go.
