I had the same problem with a 16" version of that fan I had found at a local antique mall several years back (mine was the brown version with the rotary switch in the base rather than the lever style switch like yours has).
Mine I had to replace the original headwire (which was just a simple piece of line cord) and when I did that I also redid the friction tape wrapping around the individual windings of the stator and prior to me re-wrapping the windings on the fan the fan worked well within specs, but then after re-wrapping the stator windings the fan suddenly developed a short or something because the while the fan would run the motor pulled almost 8 Amps on high rather than the 2.4 amps it was rated for so I had to junk the fan out.
