Default Cooper Fan speed controls

I recently installed a cooper light and fan speed control combo. here is the link. http://www.cooperindustries.com/cont...on_rdc15_.html

So I installed these on 3 different fans for a customer. Two of the fans are identical and one is a little smaller. The smaller one works fine on all four speeds. The two larger ones only work on the highest speed and the lowest speed.

I have called cooper and was waiting to hear back from them. I figured I would get your thoughts. This switch is rated for 1.5 amps. There is a 2.5 amp option however I wouldn't think this isn't the issue since they work fine at full speed. Any way just curious to see what you all think it could be.

Not to hi Jack this thread but I just bought a lutron fan speed control and dimmer combo and on the way home I started thinking this might not be what I need.

I have 4 recess lights on a dimmer and just installed a fan with no light on a different circuit. Maybe my brain is fried from almost 36 hours this week already but will this switch work with the lights and fan on seperate circuits?? Thinking I need a 3 wire but I'm too tired right now to process this
