  1. Just bought the Sunbeam Chromatic Windmill Fan controller. While making holes in the case and hiding wires, i accidently pulled on the power cable and ripped one wire out of the molex power connector.
    This is what it looks like. Looks like a 3 to 4 pin adapter. But all the 3-4 pin adapters are usually made for the fans.

    I was looking at this adapter here:

    but don't know if it'll work, since, like i said before, they're made for fans.
    Any help would be appreciated!

    P.S. Forgot the mention that the 3-pin connector has 3 wires, not 2.

    After endless searches, i couldn't find anything similar to that connector. Tried looking for 1-pin and wiring each wire separately but couldn't find those either. So i just soldered the wire back to the terminal, plugged it in and voila.
