I got a GE Whiz this weekend. The wheel(?)for the oscilator turns, but the screw that holds the link arm(?) is the wrong sizw. Seems it needs a tiny shoulder bolt of sorts. I took the arm off so the fan blows and the oscilator wheel just turns. Not sure the proper names for these parts so I know what to look for. Any help is appreciated.


Need a correct cage as well!

You need a shoulder screw. Putting any random screw will bind the fan up as normal screws will tighten as the fan oscillates. Shoulder screws prevent this.

Yes shoulder screw. Do you know what size they used?
