Hello everyone, just finished up my first restore on an Emerson fan that has been in my family as long as I can remember. Was my grandfathers, then my dad's and now mine, was in need of good clean up so I started cleaning it one day and before I knew it was completely disassembled. A few months later I am the proud owner of one beautiful fan.                                                                                                                                                                     







Unfortunately the wiring was so brittle several wires broke during assembly, will be repaired at a later date. I apparently made the " rookie mistake" and didn't take many pictures during tear down , won't make that mistake again.

The cast hub blade is probably from an earlier year.   The 19646 with carrying handle would have a steel cage and probably a stamped hub blade.  There were quite a few changed occurring in a few year's period at the time.

I have 2 19646 Emy's with handles in the rough, as found, and both have cast hub blades.

I know this was a turning point for steel guards and stamped hubs. I assume both are correct and I wonder if there was a price difference.  I have a Jadus wire mount with the earlier AB motor that has a steel guard.  I think these guys did this stuff just to mess with us.

That might explain the steel guard a little.  I assume there is no AB Jandus motors on any C-Frame.  Never seen one.  I had also never seen an AB motor until this wire mount showed up at a flee market.

That fan has been in my family since I was a kid, as far as I know the blade or the cage have not been changed. How would I know if those items are not original?

You can't and no one else can either, but what is certain is you know the history of your fan so it's 90% certain it is original. Your serial number 142580 so it would fit into a transitional period for certain.

My 19646 is ser. No. 144000 and has a steel cage and stamped steel hub.   Don't ALL Emersons fit into transitional periods with multiple changes here and there over the life of Emerson's fans?
