Since I'm an iron fan collector, I don't know much about these.  It was given to me be a family member in showroom condition and although it run, it runs low like it needs lube...probably was only used lightly years ago.  I need your help in removing the blade and removing theoscillatorcontrol knob.  Any helpappreciated!  😁..Will de la bayou

Oscillator knob should have a phillips screw in the top of the knob.
Remove plastic knob on front of blade.  Maybe reverse thread.  Look for arrow on plastic knob in front of blade.
Blade should come off pulling forward.  Roll pin keeps blade from slipping on shaft, but do not remove pin.
Should be another plastic knob the holds the back half of cage onto motor body.
Remove oscillator knob and phillips screw on the back of motor cover.  It should slide off the back.
Screws hold on the top of the oscillator gear box.  You can grease and oil back bearing from there.
Front bearing, you are on your own....
Happy Fanning Will!

Thanks John!  I looked for a screw down in the oscillation control knob but didn't see one...I got the blade hub off fine, but. Unlike other plastic models I only can see a threaded shaft through the center of the blade assembly, not the 'normal' cross-pin blade/shaft seating.  I ran the fan for about an hour and it slowly got up to What I think is intended normal speed as it got warmer.  I'm sure that Aunt Ida/In me Chester hardly used it and it's been in a closet for well over twenty years, so any lubricants are in need of being wstmef a bit  Really a great fan...quiet, good airflow...thanks again

The oscillator knob "may" have a small setscrew that you can see when you pull up the knob.
If no setscrew, I've also had some that the knob just snaps on.  Just pull straight up to remove.

That, I believe is a PSC (capacitor run) motor, and runs well if lubricated.

Thanks for the input, y'all...this fan needed only to be ran, cause after an hour or so it came to it's original function...really an amazingly quiet air- mover!
