I just recently replaced a 4-wire (3-speed)
ceiling fan switch on my ceiling fan. The chain had broken off inside the switch.
After installing the new switch, the fan wouldn't turn
at all. I have tried the swithes at all speeds
and even went out and purchased another switch thinking the first one I bought may have been defective. I am certain I have the new switch wired the same as the old one as I cut off and restripped the wires (so the wires were still on the old switch).
The fan still won't turn (however I can hear a hum in one of the switch positions).
Am I missing something here? I am really stumped.
Any help is appreciated.
