Hey all, I have one of those very common GE desk/table fans. The ones everybody hates because of the rubber grommet. Yeah, those are a pain. But what I REALLY need is a replacement oscillation knob for them. Maybe I’m not searching in the right place but I can’t find a replacement anywhere. Perhaps someone could direct me to a listing? I would greatly appreciate it!

To the best of my knowledge, no one makes repops.  And they were made of a plastic that got very brittle and many are missing. There are many more of those fans than there are knobs.  

Best of luck in finding one.  

Maybe someone can 3D print them, but the cost would likely be more than the fans value.

I've been in contact with a 3d printing company. We'll see what they have to say. If it turns out that they will repop them for me, that'd be great!
