The pull chain in my ceiling fan ripped out when my little nephew was boxing with the ball on the end. I know, kids are so cute. But the fan is an old Sears & Roebuck fan, I called the dealer and asked for a replacement switch, but they dont even manufacture the parts anymore. I really like the fan and a switch is a heck of a lot cheaper than a fan. The switch is a four way switch though, it has four wires plus a ground wire. I havent found a switch to replace it anywhere, I have tried the internet, Home Depot, fan shops, light shops, the dealer, ebay even, I have had zero luck. Anybody have any ideas on how I can fix it? By the way, to make things even better, the switch was lost, so I have nothing to go by physically. Thanks for any suggestions that dont include buying a new fan, if I could I would, definatly will in the future, but I live in the Hill Country of Texas where its like an average of 100 degrees and a working ceiling fan would really help out. Thanks again.
