I have a universal electrical motor (for a home wall fan) that came shipped with a Lutron 120v 5amp rated slide dimmer control to regulate it's speed.
No rating listed on the motor itself. Two wires (and a ground) coming out of the motor casing.
Is it possible/practical to build my own 3 speed, pull switch control?
I am guessing that I would just need to get two, proper resistors with matching heatsinks and wire them to a 3 way switch.
One circuit open. One circuit no resistor. Two circuits with varying resistors to lower the fan speed.
It seems that no such thing exists for sale...
And, although I have done plenty of off-the-shelf installation of auto & home electric, I have never created custom circuitry like this.
Thank you much, Nathan
