    Wiring diagram for replacing a ceiling fan switch

    Asked Jul 26, 2007, 01:29 PM 6 Answers
    I have an Airmak AM207 ceiling fan. It has a 3 way switch with 4 wires. I am replacing the old switch and got the wires mixed up. What is the right order and color for L 1 2 3. The black is the line, grey goes to the reversing switch, purple and brown come out of the capacitor which is a Lung Chang 3 wire, 3+1.5uF300vac.

    Thank you!

    The Fan will need Your Ground and neutral, also a constant hot for the light, and a wire to your switchbox which will control the fan, then you can control the fan by pull chain, of a Fan Controller(Set the pullchain for fan on high)
