Commercial/Industrial Ceiling Fan Switch Question
Are all 4 speed ceiling fan switches the same?
I haven't found the answer so I'm reaching out in here.
Background: I have 2 commercial 60" ceiling fans of unknown manufacture (Westinghouse or Emerson or Foreign knock off) and 2 Rhine UC9020 switches that have lasted about 2-3 years before losing the connections to the 2 top speeds.
I've tried emailing and calling a few fan specialty shops, but they either don't know or don't seem to care since I didn't purchase the fan from them.
If I can't clean the switch contacts or whatever and I have to replace them, I want something that will last.
I have no clue if all 4 speed fan switches are the same or if I could go with an industrial rotary dial variable switch.
Without trying to find a VOM or taking apart the fan (20+ feet in the air) to find part numbers, can someone help me?
The fans in question are similar to this:
That fan uses a completely different switch, which leads me to ask again, are they all the same?
Thanks in Advance!
