Get yourself a half wave diode(rectifier) with overkill 3 amp. 1000 volt rating for pennies on the dollar.  Wrap one lead around one terminal, and the other lead around the other terminal(image of switch).  The diode won't cook like nichrome, yet it will reduce fan motor speed significantly(roughly 700 RPM) for a low speed.
