That centrifugal switch can drive mere mortals crazy.

Also picked up a 1510 and a 14644.  Will post pics later as they both had serious issues that I wanted to address and are presently torn down.

I am blessed that this fan runs great.  Never seen a centrifugal switch like that.

I tried in vain in past to find a patent for that centrifugal mechanism to try and pin down a manufacturer for that unusual motor.  

The unusual split phase AC motor on your fan can only be found with Adams & Bagnall 1911-20 and National Screw & Tack motor tag starting 1921.


Jandus was using GE BMY split phase motors on their desk and bracket stationaries and C-frame oscillators starting 1909. The GE split phase BMY took the place of the brushed roundball AC desk & bracket fans and AC gyros.


In 1911 GE announced in their 11 fan motor bulletin they were eliminating the centrifugal switch mechanism in their BMY style fan motors.  THIS 1911 GE FAN MOTOR CHANGE WOULD OF PUT AB/JANDUS ON THE SPOT FOR A REPLACEMENT CENTRIFUGAL SWITCH FAN MOTOR FOR THEIR AC GYROS.  


Somewhere between 1911 and 1920 AB/Jandus WITH A HIGH PROBABILITY outsourced the manufacture of those odd AC centrifugal start motors.  ABJandus did ALSO use GE AC PHASE SHIFT BMYs on their desk fans it appears 1911+.
