By leakage, I mean current leakage. Many older induction motors have a certain amount of leakage from inductive currents. Some/most if not polarized will leak through the old insulation. If you get an electrical tester which beeps, if you plug it in one way with the switch being on the neutral leg, the hole fan will beep with voltage. If you flip the plug around, everything is fine.
