About a month ago I posted looking for an armature for this 8" Menominee and have not found one, also decided the cost to send it in for rewind was too high for the fans worth to me so I decided to try rewinding it myself and have been wondering what the correct DC voltage would be for this fan.
Thanks Ed

I saw that but was not sure 110 was for both AC and DC

Yes, usually with Universal Motors like on the Menominees and Emerson Northwinds, the 110v stamped on the tag is 110 Volts AC or 110 Volts DC.

Thanks all, I just have not had any experience with high DC voltage and was not sure if this was meant for 32-48 VDC like other fans I have seen with a tag that states lower voltages.

well...……...it looks good but the fan is not running yet. The connections were so bad it was hard to figure out how the wiring went. I think I got it right but..... fan only hums but at least it does not spark or short.
