Speed Capacitor for Fantasia Fans

  • Speed Capacitor
Product Code:


Product Description

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 3-wire capacitor in your fan then this 4-wire style one can be used by modifying the connections slightly when fitting the new version. To do this you will need to twist the two grey wires together and join them both to the crimp.

  1. Replacement parts to repair fans 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Sep 2020

    We have two Fantasia Mayfair fans which were purchased over 25 years ago and have been installed in three different houses. They are both in daily use (the one in the main bedroom is on all night whilst we sleep). Over the past year or so both fans lost one speed and we replaced the actual switches which made no difference... we were expecting to buy new fans. However, after reading other reviews on this site we ordered new speed capacitors, which arrived the following day together with easy to follow instructions. The work took around 15 minutes per fan and both are now as good as new.
    With Fantasia offering an online catalogue of spare parts, helpful advice and instructions I can see no reason why our fans shouldn’t last another 25 years.
    Excellent product, great customer service and exceptional corporate ethos.
    Shame other companies don’t provide an identical business model (Hunter anybody?)

  2. Fan back to new 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jun 2020

    I have a 13 year old Fantasia fan which had lost the middle and then the slow speed. I had looked at replacing the fan, but an enquire to Fantasia
    recommend replacing the speed capacitor. This was supplied from stock with replacement instructions.
    The fan is now running on all three speeds again.
    Excellent service from Fantasia.

  3. Great customer service 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Apr 2020

    I brought 2 fans roughly 10 years ago, one fan never had all 3 speeds working. During the lockdown thought it was about time I got round to looking at it. I spoke with Lee who provided me with an excellent service and the details I needed to be able to get the fan fixed. By following his advice I brought and fitted the parts which were delivered a day after ordering. The fan now fully works and I could not be happier with the service I received.

  4. All three speeds back again 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jun 2019

    The fan in our bedroom (~15 years old) had lost one of the speeds - clicking through the three speeds went from fast, to slow, to stationary with a humming sound! The replacement speed capacitor came next day and was really easy to fit.
    Strangely though, although the blurb said the replacement would be a three-wire capacitor and my old one would have four, it was actually the other way round! That said, it was a pretty simple job and now all three speeds work perfectly again. Thank you Fantasia, brilliant to be able to keep our existing fan working.

  5. Slow Running Fan Repaired 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Mar 2019

    The fan in my conservatory was becoming slow to start so I decided to replace both the Start and Speed Capacitors. Fantasia's website had both the capacitors I needed. I ordered them one day, arrived the next fitted that afternoon all now back to normal. Instructions clear and easy to understand. Well done Fantasia, looking forward to another 15 years trouble free running.

  7. speed capacitor 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Jan 2019

    I have a 20 year plus fan from Fantasia, over time the rotation dropped on all settings, I replaced both the starter and the speed capacitor, the rotation is now back to the original speed as at the time I purchased the fan.

    Kathryn at Fantasia was more than helpful with assisting me in the purchase of the capacitors, (next day delivery) even talking me through the wiring on the new starter capacitor, (the speed capacitor comes with a diagram).

    I cannot recommend this company more highly their back up is second to non.

    Thank you, I will certainly be purchasing from them again when the fan finally fails, but that may be a long way off yet.

  8. Rapid Service, Reasonable Price 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Sep 2018

    Easy to order, competitively priced and rapid delivery. New capacitor has 4 wires, whereas 3-wire was advertised and expected. Also all of the links to capacitor change instructions lead to the speed switch change procedure. And the instructions sent out with the part were also for the switch. Fan now works on all 3 speeds though, so very happy.
