I am new to your website and very impressed and I am still the owner of my grandmother's aqua Emerson Seabreeze 20" rollabout fan. It was used by her in St. Louis and I now have been using it in Birmingham, AL. I truly love this fan but it needs a new motor and switch. If someone can assist  me in locating these items, I will be very grateful. Thank you and stay safe.

Hey Mary - -the motor may be good, can you have an electrical guy test the switch? Sometimes a good oiling is all they need - - I have the same fan, there are small oil port(s) I use "zoomspout" with the tube that will get through the grill. If the motor has burnt out, a donor motor will be needed. Post a photo of he switch when you can.

Hi Steven...Thank you for your message. My husband did have the motor checked at an electrical supply in Birmingham, AL and was told that the motor is "burned up."  Therefore I need to locate a donor motor and would appreciate any help in this endeavor. I am indeed still hopeful that I can rescue and continue to use this wonderful Emerson Seabreeze fan.

I restored this fan (Westinghouse) awhile back & the motor smoked out - - I was told modern replacements are around, perhaps yours could be replaced - - rewinding a motor will cost more than buying 2 fans!

Still looking for a motor for this Emerson Seabreeze fan. Can anyone tell me the model number of the motor as I may be able to find one elsewhere. Thanks for your interest and help...Mary

That's a standard Off-On-On pushbutton switch, they have a rotary version of that switch which you can pick up at any hardware store for $2 and some change, like others were saying, more than likely your fan's motor is fine and it is just a matter of replacing the switch and oiling the motor, because Emerson fans take a lot to kill them, its just like their motto said on their cage badges for years "Emerson- Built to Last" and the majority of Emerson fans can be resurrected by just oiling them and or replacing a faulty power switch.

I hope this helps!
