A PRETTY GOOD RUN! I'm actually going to look at this one today. The seller is asking $30, but the fan is non-running. I don't have any more detail on it, so I'm hoping to find out more. Given the general condition, I'm hoping it is a capacitor or bad switch that is the issue. It's missing the badge, so I had no idea what I was looking at, but I have the perfect use for this if I can get it running!

It has a hex motor. They don’t have a cap and are notorious for having burnt windings due to their design. It’s likely that If it doesn’t run the windings are toast. I’d take a close look at therm for visibly burnt spots though often you can’t see that they’re bad.
