Greetings. Due to one of my kids playing Tarzan from a celing fan (don't ask). I'm now faced with the problem of re-assembling the fan wiring in the switch housing without the benefit of any documentation. The fan has a variable speed control mounted on the housing, but no reversing switch. Inside the switch housing coming through out from the center of the fan motor there are 2 white wires, 2 black wires, and 1 red wire. Inside the switch housing there are 2 wires on the variable speed control and 2 wires on the capacitor. So far I have identified which of the white wires is the neutral side of the house wiring, and which black wire is hot (carefully, with a voltmeter) but everything else is disconnected. What I need to know is how to reconnect everything inside the switch housing.
Thanks.

This is one of those problems in which a person has to be there to be able to actually help, way to hard to give guidance on without visually inspecting the fan. One suggestion though, buy a new fan or inspect one in another room that is the same if you have another fan like it.
