comment Ceiling fan switch replacements
Apparently I was confused when I wrote this post. The fan that only has one speed, does not in fact have 4 wires. It has 7. I tried some random combinations, and the best I could ever get was 1 speed. Different combinations would give me high or low (never medium) and I could never get more than 1 speed working at a time. I guess I will need to get a voltmeter or a multimeter and start testing this out.

Cool. Thanks Jim. I'll probably try swapping that around this weekend. I'll let you know how it works out.

The chain is completely pulled out of the switch. I toyed with the idea of prying the old switch apart to see if I could figure out how it is wired, but I'd rather not risk destroying the thing on the off chance that someone could help me out. I have read through the article that you referenced, but I missed the part where it pointed out that L is likely hot. This is definitely something for me to look into, and it gives me somewhere to start. I would guess that if I can only get low working, then I probably have L and 3 backwards.
