Zing Ear ZE-268S6 Wiring Instructions

This wiring instuctions page is for switch Zing Ear ZE-268S6 with four terminals as follows:

  • Terminal number sequence is 1-2-L-3 in counterclockwise direction
  • The black wire (AC line/power) is attached to terminal "L"
  • Internal positions: Off, L-1, L-2-3, L-3

If the old/existing switch does not have the same information as above, then these wiring instructions will not work.


  1. Turn off electrical current at source. Failure to disconnect power may cause electrical shock, fire hazard, serious injury, or death
  2. Do not cut the wires off the old switch. multi-strand wires are soldered together so they can be re-attached to the new switch
  3. Take a note of the color of each wire and the terminal number they are attached to
  4. Remove the wires from the old switch
  5. Make sure that the wire lead length is the same length as the line beside word STRIP. If the the lead length is shorter, stripe the wire to make it the same length
  6. Attach the wires to the new switch as noted in step 3. Wires should be inserted into the terminals on side of the switch not the holes on surface

Additional Wiring Guide (Your Fan Wires Position May Vary)

      • 1: Attached to common wire from capacitor
      • 2: Attached to larger/higher reading from the capacitor
      • L: Attached to Black wire (AC line/power)
      • 3: Attached to smaller/lower reading from the capacitor

Capacitor Information (Your Capacitor May Vary)

The capacitor may have 4-5 wires with 2 or 3 microfarad (μF) readings, or 3 wires (different in color). The capacitor usually has 2 wires on one end: 2 Grays, 2 Yellows, or 2 Blacks. One of these wires is connected to terminal “1” on the switch.

Common capacitors used with ZE-268S6 switch:

  • YCE 74133-01
  • C61
  • CBB61
  • SK HV30
