Rookie here. First fan project. Turned a dirty and scratched, yet perfectly running fan into a beautiful, non running fan. Hums but doesn't turn...even if spun by hand to start. Wiring looks correct...both duplicated original + also checked against a dwg I found on this forum and it's the same. That wiring diagram included resistance on across the A-B and A-C legs on the stator. I match the A-B, but A-C and well as B-C shows infinite resistance or and open circuit. Ut oh. Even snipped the old cloth covered wire back to within 1" if the entry into the stator windings just in case that old wire had cracked...darm...same readings. Then searched and searched with jewelers magnifiers on for damage to the coil wires...bend or a break or a discolor. Zip. I was very caution not to get close to the winding when I locked the rotor from turning to unscrew the fan.
Sounds like my stator is shot. :cry:

Any ideas on next steps?  :hammer:


I hate to see this head to the trash can. I must say these things are built like a tank.

what fan model is it?  since it is the c leg that is open, try isolating it in the stator , you might get lucky & find the break. Someone might have a parts fan for you or rewind. Pics would assist.

It sounds like he has an Emerson of some sort by the way he described the way he removed the blades from the fan (having to lock the rotor into place to unscrew the blade from the fan). 
In the thread title he said its a Emerson 77648 TF which I'm not sure what the "TF" designation means as I've never seen that designation before on an 77xxx fan before.
