  3. Pull down the fan switch carefully.
  4. Write down the color of each wire and the portal number to which they are attached on the switch.
  5. Remove wires from existing fan switch. If wires are hard to remove, insert a paper clip into each hole (numbered 1, 2, 3, L) and pull the wire out.
  6. Find word “STRIP” on the back of the fan switch. The lead Length on each wire to be re-attached to the new fan switch should be the same length as the line above word “STRIP”.

  1. after i wired the switch i have high, high, and low speed then off. which wires do i have to move to get correct………thanks

    1. Hello,

      Zing ZE268s6 has 4 positions OFF, High, Medium and Low as follows:
      *) OFF (first position)
      *) L-1 provides high speed (2nd position)
      *) L-2-3 provides medium speed (3rd position)
      *) L-3 provides low speed (4th position)

      If the switch does not provide 3 speeds then it could be either a wrong replacement part or wired incorrectly. To make sure that you wired the switch properly, refer to the old switch and wire the new switch accordingly. Would you please tell me what is the part number on the old switch?

      Thank you

  2. What color wires go into which number. I have 1, 2, 3, L. Wire colors are green, purple, black and gray.

  3. Jack Dunnam: When I replaced this part in a Hunter fan this evening, I used 1: gray, 2: brown, 3: turquoise, 4: black.

  4. Some one else removed the switch and didn’t mark it . I have no idea which wire goes where or witch port is L 1 2 or 3 being as zingear does not mark their switch .i have a 5 wire CBB61 capacitor , wire colors are gray,gray,purple,brown,and red. Can you help me?

  5. How do you “securely attach each new wire” and to what? It appears that when each wire is inserted into the portal, the wire must somehow be anchored to the metal pieces that go around the switch, but it is unclear exactly how that is accomplished. When I tried, the wires kept falling out of the portal hole.

    1. The wire should be attached when inserted into the portal on the side of the switch. Twist each wire and push to insert into each portal as in the previous switch. Make sure that each wire has been securely attached simply by pulling it out gently (if it does not come out then it is secure)
