Need help with ceiling fan switch

The switch which turns my ceiling fan on and off broke. The little brass chain broke way up, so I've been trying to replace the switch. I believe (not certain) it's a NUTONE fan. It has 3 speeds plus an off position. The switch has 4 wires coming into it, labeled L, 1, 2, and 3. I bought a replacement switch and it didn't work at all. When I took the old switch and the new switch apart, I could see they were different in the way the contacts between the 4 wires are made. In the old one, in the high position, L, 1, 2, and 3 are all connected together. In the new one, only 2 wires at a time are connected. Does anyone know where I can get the correct replacement switch for this fan? I'd like to order it on-line if possible. No luck finding anything local.
