I found this floor fan at a thrift store last year for $20. I use it in my office daily and absolutely love it... but a few mins ago I turned it on and saw it spark and die :shock:. Opening it up, I see the motor is burned out. Do I have any hope of finding a replacement motor??

It would help if you posted pics of the fan you're describing. Most of us don't recognize fans by model numbers. Without tearing the motor apart, it's hard to know if the motor is bad or if a wire just came off and arced. 
Worst case scenario is that the stator shorted, and possibly you can find a replacement if you have the ability to install it. 

Post on our buy sell trade thread, with exactly what you need and pics, and it's likely someone either has a parts fan to sell or the parts you need. 

Best of luck with your fan.
