Hi everyone,

    I need help identifying the wiring coming out of the motor.  The fan has a capacitor and 4 wires that connect to the switch.  I am replacing the Levolier switch with a modern double pole, double throw switch, which is center/off, left/on 1 speed, right/on 2nd speed.   I need a wiring diagram of what each wire coming out of the motor is.   I believe this motor has two windings to create the speeds. 

  I have the original switch and have marked their original wiring locations.

Do you have anything that can help me adapt a new switch to this fan?

The Emerson is type 89649.

Thank you,
John

Hey John or anyone,   
Did you ever figure out your wiring for this?
I have a similar rollabout but I'm a little lost at the moment.  I was trying to use Russ' posting to figure this out, but I'm not having much luck.
I used my multimeter and all but 2 pairings (no common wires) gave readings.
Using the colors in the attached picture these are the pairings (Red goes to the sardine can capacitor).
Red and White = 23   Green and Yellow = 24.1
I have 2P2T toggle switch lie the one shown in the attached image. Perhaps this might work.
Thanks for any help.

So, with some alligator clips, safety glasses, leather gloves and a fused power bar with a switch I can stand back and flip, I derived this chart.

It appears that the pairings of Red + Green and White + Yellow, with one pair connected to the hot and the other neutral will put the motor into high speed. 
Various combinations of a single wire connect to the hot to several different pairings to the neutral will result in the lower speed.
Does this make sense?  I'm trying to convert these findings over to a diagram like Russ put together in other posts.

I didn't quite figure out the switch yet, but I have it wired to just be on high speed when plugged in, bc let's be honest, with these bigger fans there is only one speed. ;-)
Apparently my Levolier/McGill switch is screwed and in need of parts, do when I do wire it for a switch I think I'll just use a 2P2T toggle, on-off-on style.
Based on my extremely sketchy process of figuring out the above table of wire combinations, I should be able to wire up something that will afford 2 speeds.

I'll post back whenever I get it wired for a switch.
Here is my roll about...

Yeah, my switch had a little internal piece broken.

There are 4 wires going into the motor.

Could you show how your Emerson 24" pedestal fan is wired. It is the k60 TB.
