I have a Fasco Arctic-Aire Model AN-121-A, but I don't know what year it is. Anyway, the electric cord, which I'm not sure is original, comes out of the motor shroud, into a hole in the pedestal, then out under the pedestal to the outlet. The pedestal base sits right on top of the cord. Is there a way to avoid that? Is that the original design of it? There is no other hole for the cord to come out of the base. I can post a picture if needed.

Pictures may help if you can.

LOL.

You confused me when you said pedestal... that's just a desk fan, not an actual pedestal fan. :up:

You may not be able to do it with the wire that's there but it is supposed to run in and out of the same hole, just for looks. There aren't any electical parts in the base.

A lot of the later, lesser fans did this to imitate the look of thier older cousins.

I am new to this. I've collected 3 fans over the past 25 years, and don't know the proper part names. I love these fans and I love to work on them. Anyway, on this one, there is nothing in the base for the wire to attach to. It's completely hollow and empty. Any suggestions? Does anyone know the original configuration?

There isn't supposed to be anything in the base, as Nick described, the wire should go into the base, loop around and come back out the same hole, for decoration purposes.

Thank you. The current wire is too thick for the hole. I'll have to attach a thinner cord.

There was originally a clip that kept the wire from coming out but this was probably lost or discarded the first time the fan was messed with. It's not really necessary to keep the wire from coming out though.

The proper way to thread the wire is to start with the plug end going into the base from outside and then take the end back through until there is a small loop inside the base. You should NOT just crease the wire at a given point and stick it in the hole, however easy it may be.
