Questions & Answers

The fan switch does not work. The fan will rotate just if the lights are on what is the reason ?

This 3-speed fan switch is for use with dual-capacitor ceiling fans and can handle a fan maximum of three amps at 250-Volt or 6 Amp at 125-Volt. Please confirm that your fan has a dual capacitor and the wiring matches the diagram included with the product. If the fan has a single capacitor you would need part# 82345, if it is a triple capacitor you would need part# 82375.

I have a Hunter fan with a single encased dual capacitor. I need a switch that is 4 terminal, with L, 1 ,2, 3 terminals that has an off position, and L to 1, L to 2 and 3, and L to 3 positions. Will this switch work for me?

There are at least two types of fan switches with different switching configurations. From reading other questions and answers, this model will not work on my Hunter dual capacitor fan. For my fan to work properly the switch needs a position where the L terminal is not connected to any other terminal. This position is the off position. The second position is high and connects full voltage to the fan motor by connecting L (Black lead) to terminal 1 (gray wire). The third position is mediums speed which connects L to terminals 2 and 3 (Brown and green leads) placing the two 5 MFD capacitors in parallel and then to the fan motor. The fourth position is low speed which connects L to terminal 3, (Green lead) to one of the 5 MFD capacitors to the fan motor. This model switch does not have this type of switching configuration, because there is no position where L is not connected to anything. That's why people are complaining that there is no off position on their fans that require the other type of switch that I describe here.

I have a hunter dual capacitor. Took my old one out rewired the new one and it aint working I don't understand what I did wrong I have a grey green black brown wires can somebody tell where I put them at L123 Please

I have the same Hunter fan wiring that you have, and I can tell by the other questions and answers here that this switch will not work with your Hunter fan. After much research to try to get my fan running again, I have discovered that there are at least two configurations of fan switches out there. The one you need has to have a switching configuration where it has an off position where the L terminal is not connected to any of the other terminals. The second position connects L to terminal 1 (High). The third position connects L to both terminals 2 and 3 (Medium). The fourth position connects L to only terminal 3 (Low). If your fan has Black, gray, brown, and green leads, then you hook the wires up Black to L, gray to 1, brown to 2, and green to 3. The model switch that is listed here does not have this configuration and will not work on a Hunter dual capacitor fan with two 5 MFD capacitors in one case with two gray leads, one going to the switch and a brown and green leads opposite the gray leads.

How do you hook up the wires

Each push-in connector includes a very small, spring-tension, metal clamp inside the body of the switch. This clamp is designed to grip the bare wire securely once it is inserted in the hole, and it can be released only if you insert the tip of the small screwdriver into the release slot next to the opening. Release exising wires from non-working switch and reinstall with new switch. Note nbrs. on switch body and wire colors before removal to reinstall in the same manner according to wire colors and nbrs.

Single speed with no off?
The switch will not turn the fan off, you have to have wall switch to do that. Also there is not a noticable difference in the speeds. Overall easy to install but poor product. Would not buy again

Type of switch and # of capacitors
I read in another forum to count the number of capacitors (rectangular or square black components with wiring) in your ceiling fan. If you have 2, buy the fan switch that is dual capacitor. If 1, buy the switch with single capacitor. Hope this helps someone.

If you need to fix your ceiling fan because it will no longer switch speeds, a switch of this type is what you need. You need to be fairly handy and comfortable working with electricity to install it yourself. Also, note that different brands of ceiling fans require different switches (I found this out the hard way). Check your brand to determine what type of switch it uses. You can find this information on the internet though it may require some searching. I was able to install the switch with minimal issues, and my ceiling fan now works like it is supposed to. It would be helpful for Home Depot to have more information on their website regarding the selection and replacement process.
