Here is the way to check the switch. Turn off the power to the fan circuit and remove the switch's cover plate and remove the screws that mount the switch to electrical box. Use a voltage tester to verify the screw terminals on the side of the switch to make sure they are not hot and then gently pull the switch out from the box. Unscrew the wires from the two terminals and flatten their ends with a pair of pliers. Twist the two exposed ends together and screw a wire nut onto the twisted pair. Turn the circuit back on. If the fan goes on, the switch is to be change. If the fan still does not work, the problem is in the wiring or the fixture.
