  1. Hello,

    ZE-208s provides 3-speed settings. The wires are connected to the terminals as follows:
    – Terminal “L” is for hot wire (usually black)
    – Terminal “1” is for high-speed wire connection
    – Terminal “2” is for medium-speed wire connection
    – Terminal “3” is for low-speed wire connection

    Thank you

  2. I have an older 3speed ceiling fan with a Zing Ear ZE 268S switch. The switch has 4 wires, L purple, 1 gray, 2 brown & 3 black.
    Can I wire the fan with a Zing Ear ZE 208S Roman Numeral 2?
    Were can I purchase two ZE 268S switches?
