Hello there all. I am new here. I am looking for some help on a Signal 350A model three speed fan. The wiring was so shot I have no idea what wire goes where. Any help Would be great. The rest of the fan is in such good shape. I cleaned and polished the whole fan and is she a beauty. All I need to do is finish the wiring. Thanks for your help on this matter.

Your fan dates to about the late 1920s to the early 1930s, your fan is made by Signal which was originally known as Menominee Electric Manufacturing Co. of Menominee, Michigan up until the late 1910s early 1920s when Menominee's original Founder and President Mr. Tideman offed himself after he got in trouble with the law for poor bookkeeping, and other fraudulent practices, at least that's the story I've heard.
There should be somewhere on this website a wiring diagram for your fan under the resources section of the wesbite, but you may need to be a member to access it but not sure.

Hope this helps.

Here you go, its not the wiring diagram for your specific model but it will work for your fan because its a wiring diagram for 3-speed fans in general that have a speed coil like yours does, so it should work.


Hope this helps,

Levi

This is the after polishing and rewire. You can post this fan on the web site if you want. There is not a 350 A picture on the site. Thanks for your help Levi could not have done it without you.

No problem, I was actually in a similar situation myself a while back and I remembered that diagram.
