HELP!! Wiring a pull chain in a Hunter ceiling fan
Asked Aug 28, 2006, 03:24 PM
Ok, my 81 year old mother's ceiling fan pull chain broke off inside the switch. I was careful when I changed the switches, only changing one color at a time. It didn't work, so I called my electrician brother-in-law who discombooberated the whole mess, told me the switch I got was bad and went on with his life. I got a new switch today but since he took all the wires out I have no idea who goes where. I have a black, green, brown and 2 gray wires. Now I know one of the gray ones gets tied to the gray wire in the ceiling fan. Just figure it's the one closest to the end of the switch but I could be wrong there too. It's been quite warm here in West Virginia and my mother doesn't like running the A.C. any more than she has to but she loves her fan. Can someone help us out?
