3-SPEED CEILING FAN REPAIR


!!!USE THESE INSTRUCTIONS AT YOUR OWN RISK. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DEATH, FIRE, PROPERTY LOST, HURRICANE, TORNADO, FLOOD OR DOG BITE!!!.  I WROTE THIS PAGE FOR MY OWN USE.  IF THE FAN WON'T RUN YOU ARE PROBABLY TURNING ON THE WRONG WALL SWITCH.  THE CAPACITOR/S IS/ARE THE PART/S THAT FAIL MOST OFTEN.  IF YOUR 3 SPEED FAN DOES NOT RUN ON ALL SPEEDS REPLACE THE CAPACITOR/S.  THE CAPACITOR WILL NOT ALWAYS SWELL AS IT FAILS.  REPLACE IT WITH THE SAME VALUES AS YOUR CAPACITOR, NOT WHAT YOU SEE PICTURED HERE.  THE NEW CAPACITOR WIRES MIGHT BE A DIFFERENT COLOR, OR THEY MIGHT BE THE SAME COLOR BUT ATTACHED TO DIFFERENT CAPACITORS (THERE ARE 3 CAPACITORS IN THE PACKAGE). WIRE THE NEW CAPACITOR TO THE VALUES AS THE OLD CAPACITOR, NOT WHAT COLOR THE WIRES ARE.  SOMETIMES YOUR CAPACITOR WILL HAVE TWO GREY WIRES.  THE FAN WILL RUN, BUT NOT PROPERLY UNLESS YOU CONNECT THEM CORRECTLY. IN MY PIC BELOW THE WIRES ARE BLUE AND BLACK. LOOKING AT THE PIC BELOW THE WIRE ON THE RIGHT GOES TO THE 3-SPEED SWITCH AND THE WIRE ON THE LEFT GOES TO THE REVERSING SWITCH.  IF YOUR FAN DOES NOT OPERATE CORRECTLY, REVERSE THEM.  AFTER THE CAPACITORS, THE 3-SPEED, 4-WIRE SWITCH FAILS MOST OFTEN.  NOT ALL 3-SPEED SWITCHES ARE THE SAME.  GET THE SAME PART NUMBER.  USE A LARGE PAPER CLIP TO REMOVE THE WIRES FROM THE OLD SWITCH. REMOVE THEM ONE AT A TIME.  KEN'S ELECTRONICS HAS SOME TIPS ABOUT COMPATIBLE SWITCHES.  EBAY IS A GOOD PLACE TO BUY PARTS.  AS OF 2016 NEW CEILING FANS HAVE A CURRENT RESTRICTION CIRCUIT THAT PREVENTS YOU FROM USING MORE THAN 190 WATTS IN LAMPS.  IT HAS A RELAY IN IT THAT I HAVE HAD TO REPLACE.  WHEN IT FAILS YOUR LIGHT WILL BLINK.
