Ceiling fans

Can I convert a 3-speed ceiling fan to a 4-speed? The fan has a very big difference between Medium and High speed. I'm hoping this might solve the problem. 
Thanks for your time.

Hello Kabokie.  Welcome to the Community!

I do not see how you could convert to a 4 speed fan, as fan switches are 3 speed, and no 4 speed switches are available.  There might be a way to change the medium speed though.

I would contact the fan manufacturer and ask if there is a different capacitor available which could be installed in your fan.  The capacitor controls the low and medium speeds, and are available in a variety of values.
