Hello.....my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your electrical question. My goal is to exceed your expectations on Just Answer!
1) Did you purchase an EXACT 3 speed replacement switch for the fan or did you purchase a generic switch from Home Depot or Lowe's?
2) Any chance that you documented and labeled the 4 fan wires prior to removing the original switch?
