Hello All!

Recently, I made a post about my SMY flinging oil across the desk and asking for solutions. I took the fan apart on Monday and discovered a flange on the back of the blade hub. I took this to mean fiber washers are not the issue as this flange is meant to direct oil back toward the return. The oil returns, however, were totally clogged with black goo. I cleaned that out, replaced the oil, reassembled the fan, and let it run on the kitchen table for a few hours. No problems! Last night I brought the fan up to my room, turned it on and went to sleep. When I woke up, there was oil everywhere on the desk. What's worse, it destroyed a family heirloom. This incident made me nine miles past angry. Hopefully someone can explain what's up with this thing, or it's going to become a permanent static display. 

(Between this and my Quiet Blade rattle I wonder: are all GEs this much of a pain...)
