Replacing a Pull-Chain Switch

As I was getting ready for work this morning, I hit the light switch on the ceiling fan and broke the chain. After work, I opened up the canopy and tried to remove the broken chain. I messed up the whole circuit trying to put it back together. I didn’t want to waste any time so I went to Home Depot to find a replacement.

I asked one of the associates to help me find the part and he immediate told me it was only available online even though the website said at least 5 items were in store. I had to find it myself and I did.

I went home, installed the new part, and voila! It worked. I wasted almost 2 hours on this tiny job. It was a good learning experience. I will order more parts for other ceiling fans too.

Another day, another DIY. The 3 Amp Single-Pole Single Circuit Pull-Chain Switch cost $5.
