I'm trying to figure out how to remove the stator from my 10 inch brass blade Century fan.  There is no top tag on it and I would like to find one of those, too.

Pics of your fan will help. If it is a stamped steel motor it is much harder than a cast iron one.

Donald Coleman may be able to help. He makes great badges and id tags for emerson jr and ge pancakes.

If your Century is pot metal (magnet does not stick to the motor case) it quite possibly will disintegrate when you try to remove the stator. The pot metal on centurys has become very brittle due to age. 

Anyhow, good luck with the removal.

Hi Don, thank you for your reply.  I think my case is a steel one..  Someone replied for me to check if it was pot metal ( a magnet will not stick to it) and it does.  Not sure if that means a cast iron or a steel one (how do I tell..).  If it is steel, how would I go about removing the Stator??  Thank you, again, Blair

Hi Lane, thank you for the reply.  I checked and a magnet Does stick to the head.  I'm not sure that means steel or cast iron but, I guess, both are stronger than pot metal..  What method do you use to take the stator out??  Thanks, again, Blair

Does the magnet stick to the motor end bells also?  If you post pics, we'll know what fan you have and can give better advice instead of guessing.

Blair, photos please.  We don't know what your fan looks like or close to what year it is.
