Pictured is a GE fan in need of restoration. It is running at two speeds. I am not sure if this is just a two speed fan or the coil is not working correctly. Someone mickey moused the cage with a poor repair job.

The blades are nice and straight

















 It will be double boxed with the motor in one box with a hose clamp on the shaft. Cage and blades in another box and then combined with the motor in a larger box measuring 23"x19"x17" weighing 32 pounds. Price is $700.00

     With an '01 patent date on the tag? I'm doubting that, thought we were looking at an '03.....

   Buy, sell or trade?

The 1903 pancakes have the switch in the base.   1902 was the last with the back switch.   I think I saw Form A which is 1901.   II have a 1900 stick 12" model with no vent holes but it has a 1901 patent date and is the correct for 1901 Form F9.   The serial number places it as having been made in 1904.  An all original unrestored fan.
Year   size.. frame...Type..Form…Volts...Freq.....Ser. No….Spec…Last pat. date

1900   12”     S        UI      F9     104       60       46976    12721   5/27/90



1900   12”     S        UI      F9     104       60      181508       -       6/25/01    1900 model w/1904 ser. no.



I also have an 1899 stick pancake with a 1901 serial number
1899   12”     S        UI      F       115       60       78119     3725    5/27/90    1901 model yr. ser. no.

A 1901 with an out of sequence serial number that falls within the 1903 range. Not really unusual. What caught my eye was that there is no spec number following the s/n. Almost all the fans in the survey have a 172xx spec number. Also, it is a 104 volt 40 cycle motor. The 1901 survey fans are all marked with 100/108 volts, 108/115 volts, or 100/115 volts and either 60 or 125 cycles. Haven't seen that single voltage rating or cycles for a 1901 fan before...
