I just recently picked up a Westinghouse fan that I think is about a circa 1940 and it doesnt run.
I took it apart and it appears that all wires and parts are intact. When I plug it in and turn the switch on the motor hums and it barely turns, like about 1/16". When I turn the motor it feels like there's a magnetic grip, but it wont turn. Any ideas on what the issue might be?
