Hi and thank you for the Add.  I bought one of these Western Auto fans, It runs on high but none of the other positions. When I removed the cowling, I noticed that the red wire in the photo below was disconnected.  Can someone please tell me which stub it is soldered too? I used colored electrical tape to match the other wires.  I believe the switch works, as it moves nicely into position. Click.Click.Click etc.  Thank you for you answer, and I appreciate your help.

What is that red wire hanging down which appears to not be connected to anything?

HI and thank you for the reply. That's what I was trying to find out as well as which connector on the switch I should re-solder it too. This picture shows where it starts, it is not connected on the switch end. The fan operates at highest speed only. Thank you!

OK, here is how it should be wired.
One wire of the cord should go straight to the motor
One wire of the cord to the line connector on the switch (which yours appears to do)

One lead of the switch should have both the other motor wire & a wire coming from the choke.
One lead of the switch should go to the choke (yellow it appears)
One lead of the switch should also go to the choke (red)

On hi speed, full current goes from the cord through the switch, to the motor
On medium, current goes into the switch, through one leg of the choke coil, out the choke coil & into the hi speed motor lead.
On lo, current goes into the switch, through the other leg of the choke coil, out the choke coil & into the hi speed motor lead.

In essence, you're saying that the red and yellow wires should be connected to the same lead on the switch?  I'll use an alligator clip and test that. Thank you very much!
Dave

No, one should go to position 1 & one to position 2. Position 3 should share one choke wire & the motor wire.
