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

1) Please provide details as to the problem? Do you have a wall switch that controls the fan speeds? Need more details as to the problem?

No wall switch. Just a 3 speed pull chain.
Electrician: Kevin, Licensed Electrical Contractor replied 10 months ago

1) I need details on the problem? Is that 3 speed switch not working on all fan speeds or another issue?

2) Do you require a replacement switch?

Electrician: Kevin, Licensed Electrical Contractor replied 10 months ago

1) If you need a replacement 3 speed pull chain switch, the replacement switch must be an identical match to the original switch. Generic pull chain switches purchased at Home Depot will often not work. Thus the reason an identical replacement is a must.

2) You also need to label the wires from the original switch and terminate them to the correct terminals. If the 4 wires are not terminated to the correct switch position terminals, the fan speeds may not work correctly.

3) I recommend that you purchase a replacement 3 speed pull switch from eceilingfans.com. This is the best resource available for fan replacement parts. See link shown below:

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

Otherwise, don’t forget to rate me before you log Off.

Thanks.................Kevin:)
