In this fan I just bought a couple of days ago I found this (photo below), which I imagine interferes with its proper operation and is probably wiring from a part of the interior mechanism which has crept out over the years of use
So I was wondering what it is exactly, how serious a problem it may be and how I would/can go about fixing it?... any ideas from anyone are welcome.
I had been looking forward to work on it over the weekend since it is my first fan and I was excited and preparing to try and restore it to as close to its former glory as possible, but doing some reading in the forum as to how to do that exactly, I found that everyone seems to agree that it is not the best fan to get started on (Westinghouse Lively-Aire, still unclear as to the exact year and model, I wrote a previous post asking for help with that, in case someone can help), given that it appears to be pretty hard to re-assemble and to do so without scratching the paint. Having said that, would I need to take it all apart to fix this problem... I assume it is in need of a good cleaning and application of new oil and grease on the interior and oscilating mechanisms... what would you more seasoned fan aficionados recommend I do?
Thank in advance for your time as well as any and all help offered
