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. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  8. three speeds back 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Jun 2017

    My fan had lost its lower two speeds, the capacitor had four wires, the replacement on the website had three.
    A quick email to the company told me that the three wire would fit the bill, but they would check if they had a four wire in stock if I placed my order.
    A day later my parcel arrived with a four wire capacitor which was simple to fit.
    I now have all three speeds back.
    I was so impressed I ordered a new base cover and pull cord to tidy my old fan up. The whole thing now looks and works great.
    Super impressed, keep up the great customer service fantasia.

  9. 3 speed capacitor 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Apr 2017

    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.

  10. Fitting Speed capacitor 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Aug 2016

    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.
