My motor appears dead. I don’t know what rpms I need. Basically I don’t know what to look for.

i dont have one of those, but remember too that the motor has to turn counter-clockwise for the westinghouse blade, not clockwise for a standard box fan.  ....if you get one that turns the wrong way, you MIGHT be able to switch the ends and turn the stator around to change rotation, but it depends too how the wire lead to the switch is routed through the ends

Thank you. I would not have thought to make sure I purchased a motor that runs counter clockwise. I know enough about motors to be dangerous. I built a large enclosure, provided motor for and assembled a large industrial type fan for use at my shop. It did run backwards but I was able to change the wiring scheme to correct that problem.

The motor I used would not fit in this Westinghouse; it was 1750 rpms with the benefit of a belt and pulleys.

You might try Grainger. They have a wide assortment of replacement motors.

Again, I don’t know what to look for. How many rpms should I look for?

Looks like Motor will need to pull 2.3A w 120V  Interesting little motor that one , so small and pulling 2.3A ? I bet she runs warm,  it must have Napoleone's Syndrome.


Is it a 2-speed fan?
