I need an actual picture of where each wire goes in my Emerson 77646-AS.  I have seen the drawings but alas, I don't understand them.  I think I have the wires from the head attached but I am not sure how to attach to the switch and I do not want to burn up my motor.

Thanks, I would appreciate the pics.  I know it is simple but I am at a loss when it comes to electricity.  I think I have the 3 wires coming out of the head correct but not sure how to connect them to the switch.

My telephone is 913-451-3343 and I live across from Corporate Woods in Shannon Valley.

Sorry I thought that your fan was a 16" emerson, the 12" ones have different wiring I think. Sorry for not telling you. The only 12" emerson I have doesn't have a capacitor so it would be wired differently. Hopefully you can get some help. I could help you figure it out but you would have to take the fan to my house so we could figure it out there.

I'll check thursday , meanwhile mark your 3 leads & get the readings between them. the highest reading will be the start & run winding, (the odd one is common).  then figure out which one with the common is higher.

You are talking to a total dummy when it comes to checking electrical.  I do have a meter that I use for checking my cars but do not know how to "check the readings" like you mentioned.  I do have the wires marked by color but if you will tell me how to do the check you asked, it shall be done.

I know I am making something very simple into something hard.  The reason I am doing this is because the headwire  was so old that it broke off at the base of the fan.  It worked pretty good and I use it every day in the summer.  I bought two of these fans for $7 at a swap meet a couple of years ago and gave one to my brother Bob in Wichita.

Thanks again for your help and concern.

Mike

I don't know if I did this correctly and do not have any idea what would be reasonable but here they are: Black to white = 52.1, black to green = 175.8, and white to green= .227

ok the 227 pair is your start & run winding lead.  Connect your black lead(common) to one side of the power cord.  you should know where the other one hooks too.
green & white go to the last position on the speed coil.
Put the capacitor in the green line, in otherwords ,the green connects from the headwire to the cap, comes out of the cap & goes to position 3.
Before reassembling all of that I create test leads (speed coil on bench next to  fan) to make sure fan runs properly-- that should do it, when re-assembling be careful not to pinch any wires. 
Also you can run these fans briefly without causing harm ,I use a power strip with an on off switch-- hook everything up, place fan in high speed,  flip switch   if fan doesn't immediatley start, flip off
