I got the fan then saw that the headwire was color coded to the soeed coil so i just saved the the colored lewds on both the headwire and base and figured it be an easy rewire, but now im noticing that my white wire is not present on my speed assembly but is present on my headwire. The head has 5 wires but i only have four coming out of the base. I was wondering if anyone would know how where the white wire is supposed to go on the switch. 

The fan is a 5 speed century inclosed cast iron model

Also I beleive the wireing should be similar if not the same as a skeletal century.

Is it possible the white came from the power cord neutral?  The power cord neutral generally does connect to the headwire.

Dylan, the best way to determine is do a continuity
Test on the wires from the motor your red, black are your motor leads
White is your phase start only 3 wires are to be used it’s possible that
Soneonr used a 5 wire to hook up the motor if you get no reading on the 2
Then possible it’s not hooked up to the motor let’s know what you find out ?

You might want to correct the spelling of the word "lead" in your posts, as you somehow managed to spell "lewd" rather than "lead", and it happened twice in your postings, if you don't correct that someone might think your trying to write a fan porno...  :shock:  :wondering:  :D
