This speed capacitor is suitable for use with Fantasia Fans with pull cords. The speed capacitor controls the 3 separate speeds of the fan and so would generally be required if your fan has lost one of its speeds or is only operating in high speed, even when you pull the fan pull cord.
If you have a 4-wire capacitor in your fan then this new 3-wire style one can be used by modifying the connections slightly when fitting the new version. To do this you will need to cut the second grey wire on your existing capacitor and join it to the crimp, as shown in the instructions.

Fan only worked on fast speed for years and was going to sell it but looked up website for fantasia and saw we could replace the speed capacitor, ordered it, replaced it and now it's up and running perfectly again. Really pleased because it was an expensive fan.

I cannot fault the speed and delivery of the replacement part or the helpfulness of the staff at the office. The product works, but it has one less grey wires that the speed capacitor it was replacing. So there is a requirement to study the circuit diagram on the side of both the old and new items to see how to re wire the fan to achieve the same electrical connectivity. The explanation on the enclosed instruction sheet seems to brush over this by saying that it is the same and once you have worked this out that is true. The good news is that the fan worked first time after the repair and restored the three speed options which had been lost when the speed capacitor failed.

I have two fans in my conservatory and they are excellent, I have just had to renew the Start and Speed Capacitors in both fans. Fantasia were absolutely first class with their delivery, the fitting instructions were easy to follow and fans are working perfectly well again now.

Received a 3 wire capacitor as originally fitted but replacement had different capacitance values. I was also lead to believe that the 4 wire capacitor was the latest fitment so was surprised that this was not supplied or are they using up old stock?
Works fine anyway.

I purchased a brand new boxed Fantasia Vienna ceiling fan ( older model not clip on blades )on ebay and after installation found the middle speed was missing.
Checking on line regarding the fault pointed me in the direction of the speed capacitor.
Ordered direct with Fantasia Spares, received in two days, fitted same day and now all is ok.
Crimping tools are required when fitting.
