Hello my name is Gary and I’m new on here and I need some help with the wiring of my Emerson 29645. When I bought the fan the gentleman that had it cut all the wiring from the fan which left  me no reference as to how to rewire correctly(the motor to the chocker?). I have found two different wiring diagrams but with one the motor will only start with help from a finger and the other it runs completely backwards. Please help!!  Here is the way it is wire now. I found this on this sight earlier. It runs great and changes speed it’s just running backwards.

Is it possible that I reinstalled the motor windings backwards?  I bought the fan a few years back, got started, and then got busy at work and it was put on the back burner. So I was working on memory.

Hi Gary, and welcome!   Several things can cause your problems. Make sure it's well lubricated and that you've cleaned out all old grease from the oscillator box and replaced it with new oil. Excess friction can cause them to start slow when cold. 

It is also possible that the start winding is bad in the motor stator. An ohmmeter can verify that. Disconnect the headwire at the switch/choke and measure the readings between each of the 3 pair combinations that lead to the motor. If you have an open circuit, that's not good and a likely bad coil (or a broken headwire) Circle back to us if you don't get it figured out. Best of success with your restoration!
