|I have an Emerson 73648 AK I just finished working on for a friend and I have a few questions/concerns:
Overall, the fan is a great fan (color choice aside). I'd really like to get my hands on one of these for myself. Since I'm doing this for someone else, I'm a bit more sensitive to making sure everything is as good as it can be. I won't be around to detect if something is going wrong. And it's going in her barbershop, so it is going to see some serious use. Thanks in advance.
- How much oil does the fan take, or how do you know it has enough when 'filling' anew?
- The motor tag states it is rated at .83A, but I'm drawing just over 1.5 on the 'Hi' setting according to my Kill-A-Watt. it goes down to around 1.1A on Lo. I've triple-checked my wiring and all appears good. Should I be worried?
- I've been running the fan for the past few hours. I put approximately 60 drops of oil in based on some research here on the site (but still wondering if too much/not enough - question #1), The fan is running around 150F at the blade shaft. The motor housing is a respectable 120F. Spin down on shut-off is 36 seconds. I feel like these numbers are okay, but just wanted to get some second opinions.
