  1. I recently purchased a Model ZE-268s1 3 speed 4 wire fan switch. My old switch is 4 wire plus the load wire. I purchased the 4 wire replacement thinking that the load wire was one of the 4 wires. I don’t really care about having 4 speeds and am wondering if I can leave out the purple wire. On my old switch, the L is black, slot 1 is gray, 2 is green and 3 is brown, which leaves purple unattached. If I can’t make this work, then I need to exchange the switch for the 5 wire switch.

    I look forward to your reply,

    1. Hi,

      It seems that you need a 5-wire switch. If you purchased the switch from us then please send us an email regarding this matter.

      Thank you
