I have one, and it has a switch or rather dial to turn it off and on.
The dial will change the speed from fast to slower.
Now, the thing is broke.
The fan or the switch?
Always try the easiest thing first, so, I've removed the switch and will
see if I can find a suitable replacement.
I sure hope its the switch and not the fan.
It's an Emerson unit, not even sure they carry that at the big box unit.
Look, right on the side, it's labeled a "FOR USE WITH WHOLE HOUSE FANS
Or go to big box store and buy any run of the mill fan switch.
And thankfully, it's just the switch.
But less thankfully the 3-speed switch is really just off-on in my
environment. I think I will look around for the proper switch. Sears has
them for $48.
I think I will look a little harder.
Yeah I think that is the same company that branded some really spotty
electronics to homeowners. Likely just a licensing deal. But,
impressions can be lasting, can't they?
Yes the home page for Emerson says they stopped making these "products"
over 10 years ago (from whatever date they created that web page lol),
so, I will have to try another source.
Googling Grainger they seemed to have quite a few choices, most of which
should work. I just want to make sure that I don't "size" incorrectly
but as it's working with the cheapest thing Lowes had to offer, I
shouldn't be too worried.
I think it's an industrial control I am looking for, with a rotary dial.
