I'm new here, but have been restoring things for about 10 months on and off. I usually fix things myself, or MacGyver something together, but I just can't fix this one issue. I found an old emerson seabreeze for a good price, $40. It was a risky buy since it had one picture and was told "it runs, but not well. It also doesn't oscilate. Alright, no big deal. Probably just an issue that can be fixed with a little bit of cleaning. Well, turns out the fan is missing it's worm gear, and the little knob that connects to the Elbow that lets it turn as well. Guessing someone took out the pieces to use for their own Seabreeze. So, I was wanting to know, does anyone know what size worm gear to buy? I'm trying to buy on a budget right now since Im in college, its the holidays, and im restoring two other fans right now. One that its speed coil bursted into flames. It doesnt have to be brass, from another emerson, etc. Honestly, I was just going to leave it how it is, but without the gear giving the stator some support, it makes a horrible knock. Any suggestions on gettingit to oscilate, or atleast stop knocking would be awesome!
