Are the speed controllers apt to fail? The 3638 NSwas installed in approximately 1983. The controller does not appear to work. We get only one speed-slow.

Hello, yes, after 34 years, it's a good bet that something has failed, whether it's the controller or the motor you would have to do some testing by pulling apart the controller if possible.
