The nut that holds the fan switch and chain on my ceiling fan undid itself, which caused the switch to stop working. After I removed the lighting assembly from the fan, I saw that the switch had disintegrated, and the wires had come out, except for the white one which was in the 'L' slot. I can buy a new switch, but how do the wires go back? I can't find a model or serial number on it anywhere. I thought if I posted a picture of where the black, yellow and blue wires were coming from, someone would be able to tell me which wire goes where.
The blue and yellow ones come from a black cube on the bottom, perhaps the unit that communicates with the remote?, and the black one comes out of the multi plug that connects to the main part of the unit.
If the blue and yellow ones control the remote function, I could live without that, just plug the black one into the correct slot on the switch, and control the fan by pulling the chain.
The photo is looking down into the housing that holds the light fixtures and switches.

Hello mtpalms and thank you for joining The Community! We are glad that you are here.
We have a Hampton Bay Team can help you with your ceiling fan situation. For best assistance, they will need the 12 digit UPC code (all numbers – no letters) found on the sticker on top of the motor housing to identify the model of your fan.
I have also notified our Social Media Team; they are available via email at TeamSocial@homedepot.com.
Best wishes on your project.
I am a Home Depot Store Associate, trained and authorized to help people on the Internet.

Can't believe I let this go so long. I took the fan down, and there is no 12 digit UPC code on it. There is a Model #: EF 200-36, and another set of numbers, unidentified: 0034086.
Seems to me the model number ought to suffice?
