Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your electrical question.

1) I recommend that you take a picture and/or label the wires at the pull chain switch connections. There is no standard wiring color code for pull chain switch types on ceiling fans. It is up to each individual fan manufacturer to determine the switch type and the wire colors.

2) If a pull chain switch replacement is required, I recommend that you contact shown in the link below. Provide them with the manufacturer name and the fan model number. Generic replacement pull chain switches will often not work or be compatible on many ceiling fans. An exact pull chain switch type is required.

If you have any additional questions, just let me know and I’ll be glad to answer them for you.
