Ceiling fan light switch

Hello,

I replaced my 2-wire light switch since the chain pulled out of the old one. The light works just fine, but for some reason my 3-way fan seems slower than before. All 3 speeds work fine, but it doesn't spin as fast.

Done anyone know what the problem could be?

Which switch did you replace? The one in the wall or the one in the fan itself? Did you mess with the fan switch wiring at all?

Hi Chandler - I replaced the light switch in the fan itself. I simply disconnected the one black wire from the blue wire and then disconnected the other black wire from the 3 black wires that are connected to the 3 lights. I installed the new switch exactly how the old one was black to blue and blue to the 3 black wires.

Does it have a remote control? The fan must be set at the highest setting via the chain for the remote to operate the lower speeds and still spool up to fast.
