Zing Ear Pull Chain Installation Instructions

Applies to the following models:


An example of a Zing Ear ZE-208S6 switch with two SK Seiki capacitors and Well Tec reverse slide switch.
The first SK Seiki capacitor is rated at 10uf (micro farads).  The second capactior has two connections for 6uf & 9uf. Important!!

Make sure circuit breaker and/or power supply is turned off before attempting to work with wiring.

Section A

It is often useful to take a picture of the wiring and mechanical assembly.  This can be helpful when trying to replicate the original installation.  


The wires need to be stripped 1\4" before connecting to the switch.  The embossed strip line on the switch can be used as a reference.

There are four slots on the switch labeled "1, 2, 3 & L." The wires will be fed into the slots using a paper clip.  Gently pry back the retainer and insert the wire into the slot.  After removing the paper clip, the retainer will bite the wire and hold it securely into place.

The manufacturer identified each wire with a color code.  Attach the wires using the photograph or the manufacturer's schematic as a reference.  If the color codes are not available, please see section B. 

Insert the threaded part of the switch into the hole and secure with the knurled nut.  Close the ceiling fan assembly, turn the circuit breaker back on and test the operation by pulling the chain.

The ceiling fan should now be operational.

Section B

Warning!!  The following wiring codes are referenced for those who do not have original schematics.  Manufacturers may have variations unique to their ceiling fan and deviations may cause electrical fire/hazard.  Please proceed with caution!!
