O. K. No political jokes. My little G. E. Wiz oscillates to the left and makes contact with the trunion(correct term???) and not all the way to the right. Any ideas???

Just a thought; is the oscillator linkage on backwards (flipped over), or on the wrong side of the motor (motor in the loop backwards)?

If it's the green fan you bought recently, I'm not sure if it was determined that it has the wrong cage or not. However if the cage is larger than it should be, that might be why it's rubbing.

The cage was removed. It is actually hitting the screw that holds the cage in place.

Hi Richard, if it is the wrong cage, the original struts probably had a reverse curve to compensate for the oscillator ring. I'll try to find some pics for you. I'm traveling so can't take pics to show you. 

Found an old post by Karolyn Badon in 2014 where she says hers also hits on the left. There were responses that said that mounting the motor backwards in the ring can cause similar problems. 


Here is a pic of her fan. Note the different struts, but hers have no curve either.  Could your's be mounted backwards? Maybe PM her and see how she resolved it?

Is your arm on left as facing the fan?

Your cage should have struts that mount to three holes surrounding the shaft. You cage on the fan is for a later fan that has a recessed area for it to attach along a vertical line by two screws.

With that said you should not have the fan oscillating more on one side vs the other and I would assume your current arm is longer from the same fan that your cage cane off if and pulling back more.

Take your arm off and measure to see if 2 7/16" in length?

Thanks Chris, I will check that when I get home. I was thinking the motor is backwards in the ring but the arm being too long, would make sense as well.
