Ceiling Fan only goes one speed

I have a ceiling fan that only goes at one speed instead of 3 like it should. It's not controlled by a remote or anything, just the pull cord on it. I've read different posts about changing the switch or the capacitator, but am not sure which one is more likely the problem. Any ideas?

Not resistor. A capacitor.

Ray, that's what I meant I just wrote it wrong. I edited the original post to reflect that. Thanks.
