    5-8 wire ceiling fan switch wiring diagram
    I have to install a new 5-8 wire ceiling fan switch in a concord ceiling fan, for my uncle. He has removed the old switch and did not write down where each of the wires came from. I have the new correct switch but need to know where all of the wires go. He did write down the numbers they came from but did not write down which of the wires went on the inboard and outboard sides of the switch. Can anybody help?

    After reading MANY post on fans, I don't think a diagram or manual is likely, may be easier to copy connections from an identical fan.

    You will need to contact Concord for the wiring, there are MANY different wiring possibilities for a 5=8 wire pullchain. See:

    Here's the answer on "How to replace a 5-wire pull-string Ceiling Fan Switch"?

    I got the replacement siwtch from Switchco, PO box 53082, Lubbock, TX 79453. Phone: 800-365-4548.

    Their item # is 01 and the description says "2 Layer 3 Speed Pull chain switch". Each switch costs 9.95

    You have the following colored wires coming out of the faN;

    Yellow (Y)
    Black (B)
    Orange (O)
    Pink (P)
    Grey (G)

    The switch has two tiers. I will call it the upper and the middle.Both are black-colored.

    The upper tier has the markings, L, 1, 2 and 3.

    This is how you connect the wires:

    L 1 2 3
    Upper Tier Y Bl P G
    Middle Tier O - Bl B

    The U1 and M2 are connected by a black colored wire that does not come from the fan (That's why I indicated that as Bl as opposed to B which comes from the fan).

    Is the configuration the same for a plug-in ceiling fan?
