Speed Control Switch for an Attic Fan.

I recently purchased a Speed control switch from Parts direct. I entered the old model number and it directed me to the replacement switch for my fan. Since installation the switch gets very hot to the touch.

Is this a common occurance or should I be concerned. I wired per instructions. I am concerned that the fan

is drawing to much amperage causing a risk for fire, so I will not use as of now.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks

Don
