Answer: 
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. Read More
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.

Answer: 
either you got a bad switch or there is a short somewhere else in the fan... if you have a tester, see if you are getting power through the switch. If you are, your problem is in the fan wiring somewhere else.

The old Hunter switch I'm trying to replace has four (4) wires. This is a three (3) speed fan with no light.

Answer: 
because you have to remove the wires from the original switch. They remove easier than they go back in. Having had to ask this question, it may be a very good idea to hire someone to do it for you as electrical fires due to potentially improperly installed wiring are never your friend.

Answer: 
Disconnect the switch wires by inserting a straightened paper clip to release them, then connect to the new switch making sure the wire colors are connected in the same holes. Make sure you have cut power to the fan/lights before working on it. You must have the correct replacement switch.

Answer: 
I would think you can cut the wire close to the old switch twist the ends and soldier the ends .. then just push the soldiered ends in the right place on the new switch .. you might want to mark down where each wire was cut from or leave a wee bit of color of the wire on the old switch.

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

Answer: 
if the wires are falling out it could be for several reasons:
-the wiring has been damaged and now too thin for the switch to secure.
-defective switch.
-a thin object has to be used to depress next to where the wire is to be installed. This opens a "gate" which closes on the wire when the thin object is withdrawn. The wire itself is not stiff enough to open the gate and so will not be secured.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 28 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works great and easy to install It was easy to remove the old switch and replace with this one. Works great. August 23, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rolling the dice 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. August 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by .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. August 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Switch Quite hard to install in existing fan due to location and original connections. Would not recommend for average home owner. August 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Switch works 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. July 6, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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). April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Replacement 3-Speed Ceiling Fan Switch This switch looks identical to the one that was replaced. The problem with the old one is that the chain pulled out, when I opened the old switch I saw that a piece of plastic that holds the chain in place had broken off. Even though the new switch looked the same it was different. I chose not to send it back, so I just "ate" my losses. Thanks for trying to help me. Ellis December 15, 2015
