so i have an Emerson 29646 that is in great cosmetic shape original paint and brass blades so it is an earlier one. the fan had been completely rewired besides the head-wire which was in great shape. when i started using the fan the head wire started flaking out where it because the wires inside were loosing the insulation so i replaced the head wire and i am pretty sure all three wires are hooked up properly and all 3 speeds are working right and are in the correct order and i have tried changing the wires around and this is the way i think it is supposed to be and all the speeds work right but there is one issue... the fan is going backwards. i don't think i flipped the stater around but i guess i can try that but i don't know. i did have to remove the stater but i don't think that i put it in backwards. i can attach a picture if the stater if that would help.

You have the head wire wrong its just a matter of reversing two wires. You can do a search here on the forum part and find a diagram for correct connections. Or just try reversing wires. You will get it sooner or later . Just bump wires together it not going to damage motor till you find right cionnection

okay. i will try, there are only 3 wires so it should not be to difficult. I have already tried reversing two wires and it did not make a difference so i guess the one i did not reverse is the one.

this fan is alot more than what i am used to working with i usually work with stuff like bersted and lakewood fans so this is a lot older and more complicated. not that putting 3 wires together is complicated but i think that at one point they were color coated but now they have faded so much you cannot tell

The 29646 is not like the previous Emersons where you can probably hook up different combinations of the wires without doing harm.   On the 29646 and other Emerson of those types the wiring/motor was changed so you CAN hook up wires in a way that will burn out the speed coil.   If you are just trying combinations do not leave them hooked up for more than a few seconds if the combination does not work as it should or you can risk destroying the speed coil.

i fixed it, apperintly 2 of the wires were backwards, another thing i was kind of worried about is that the insulation on the wires were so worn out would the insulation on the windings be okay, i dont want it to start a fire or anything. is there anything i should do about that or should it be okay? the other day i had a fan that had bad insulation on the windings and it almost started a fire and that fan was from the 80s or something it was a lakewood reversible box fan but i dont know. i have heard that the lakewood box fans with that type of motor are faulty though

Marryanna,

Post a pic of the strut you need.  Emerson used two different struts on the 29646.  I will send you one for the cost of shipping. 

Included a hookup diagram for future reference.

Tom, you might want to add to that very useful diagram "For pre-29646 and 28646"... so someone does not think that a 28646 is pre-29646 for wiring purposes.
