Replacing 3 speed fan switch on Hunter fan

I've just replaced the 3 speed switch on my Hunter fan and now only get 2 speeds High and Medium. Previously, I had off - low - med - high. This had to be replaced when the pull chain broke on the old one.

This was a pretty simple process. I purchased a replacement at HD and rewired exactly as it was before. Prior to disassembling the old housing, I labeled each wire (1, 2, 3, L).

The only difference I can tell is the model number of the switch:

Original - Zingear ZE-268S6
Replacement - Zingear ZE-268S2

I'm hoping my wires just need to be remapped, but I'm afraid it won't be that easy.

Here is my current wiring:
L - Black
1 - Gray
2 - Brown
3 - Green

Is there a different wire mapping for the ZE-268S2 model, or is it just not going to be compatible? Not sure what else is needed to diagnose, so please let me know.

Thanks.

Yes.... and that's quite a difference.

Yes... they are both three speed switches but you'll notice the switching is completely different. Your replacement switch is not the correct one.
