Don't throw it out. People will buy it for parts

Thanks Zach.. I cant throw anything away.. seems like there might be something useful in the boxes of parts. I never have what I need though., I would rather give to the guys on the forum.

Do you have pictures of the fan? It might be a easy fix .

I dont have close ups of it, but I can get them tomorrow. I think this one is beyond repair, at least by me. The owner drilled and punched the blade to try to get it off, I had an old Emerson blade that was better than his, so I installed mine. It was still not great, but he wanted it. The fan would not start on its own, so we got different capacitors for it. i tried them all, and posted about it. Since it still would not start, i looked for other problems. The rotor would not spin freely, and i found that the main shaft is bent, and the rotor is not true either.  He had done a lot of damage to it, he just did not know about the blades spinning off. so,  all being said, what I am going to do is find him another 16 inch, a good one. He needs it, and I want to help him. I try to encourage anyone that likes vintage fans.. and he really wants one. Richard

You should talk to Tom Newcity, he's the Emerson expert. He probably has the parts you need. You may be able to have him fix it for the cost of buying another. He actually warrantees his restored electric motors! Try to top that...

I will contact him. But I have tried doing complete motor replacement, without much success. I'm better at making them look good than the technical end. plus this one needs a blade and i would not guess on how to straighten the  center shaft. the owner tried removing the blade . he did not know that they screwed off..

If the stator is still good then don't throw it out because it can be used for parts. I am guessing when the person drilled into the blade they hit the shaft and drilled into it and that locked the rotor. Hopefully you can get lucky and save the stator. Also the blades twist off and that is what stumps most non collectors.

yours is what mine  is supposed to look like. Mine has issues.. the center shaft is not true, the rotor is worn from wobbling, and the coils have uneven wear from the rotor wobbling. So this is why I am looking for a new one. Once I get a replacement I would be glad to donate the head to someone that thinks they can fix it.
