I received absolutely nothing that told me there was a reply. So when I went to the original question I seen that you asked for the model number but nowhere and emails or text showed that you replied yet so I supplied it to you, and now you're getting back to me over 24 hours later probably closer to 36 hours and you still didn't answer the question or help me at all.

T​his ice fan should have 3 0r 4 wires to it. Inside the motor is a transistor and voltage ( D.C. voltage ) is pulsed to one lead to change the motor speed , so if it is ONLY running very slowly , the main control board is the problem.

The problem was fixed yesterday, no one got back to me and I asked for a refund, not for the answer that took over 36 hours.
