Hunter cieling fan prob:

P > Hi all: I have a Hunter ceiling fan that's about 8 yrs. old and that has P > begun to malfunction. It has a four-way pull-chain switch (cycles through P > off-high-med-low-off, etc.). Lately, when the switch is pulled to move fro
P > high to med, the fan does not slow to the med speed but, instead, continues P > to rotate at high speed, and when the switch is pulled again, as though to P > move from med to low, the fan stops altogether, as though the switch was on P > off. Request and would appreciate any suggestions re. probable cause(s) of P > symptoms just described (I suspect the switch is faulty), and steps require

I'd venture to guess the switch is failing and should be replaced. Probable cause is eight years of use.
