Depends on the fan. How was the old switch connected?

Welcome to the forums.

In addition to what Joed asked..... is this a ceiling fan ?
Ceiling fans use different pull chain switches that all look identical.

Here are three fan pull switches. All have the same lettering but are completely different when it comes to switching and are not interchangeable.

Your new switch MUST match the lettering in the same exact place as on the old switch.
