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.

The overheating can cause some concern and its important to be safe. I suggest you add to the thread of this question and include the full model number of your fan so that the expert can provide you with a more detailed answer. I am adding a link below in where you can enter the model number of the fan and a if available the owners manual will pop up in where you can find detailed information about your fan. I hope this helps while you wait for your expert response.
