Is it possible to buy a new motor for the Westinghouse fan model shown?

You have a 1950s vintage Westinghouse 10" Lively Aire which is a shaded pole motor and wasn't one of Westinghouse's highest end fans. as far as I know there aren't any replacement motors for the Westinghouse shaded pole motors, there are replacement shaded pole motors for fans just not this particular model that I'm aware of. 
Hope this helps.

Thanks. So I guess I should find spare parts?

that is actually a very common fan and can be found for next to nothing on ebay, just make sure you look for one that's being sold as a parts unit.

Hi Brad,

Are you sure you need a replacement motor?  What's the history...?

I bet if you put a note in Buy/Sell/Trade someone would come to your rescue with a reasonably priced used replacement.

Oops - skip that question - I see your other thread...
