Customer Questions & Answers

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.

Is this a 4 wire switch?

Example: I have looked at the manual and can't figure out what I did wrong.

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.

Replacement 3-Speed Ceiling Fan Switch is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FANtastic Product 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.

One fan had a switch that allowed the wires to be removed from the old switch by depressing a little tang, the other one I had to break the old switch to get the wires out. The main thing is to note the numbers on the old switch and mark the wires before removing them. Worked just fine on both. Made the in-laws happy.
