I had that same problem with mine. This one was a 240V motor and I cobbled together a switch that allowed me to run the 2 lowest speeds…the low one was so fast I don’t remember ever using the second one. I worried that any attempts to change the fan would only screw it up, though I did think about making the box bigger, thinking the increased area would lead to slower velocity. Never got to try it since we moved and I left it hanging in the old shop.
