Westinghouse “Big Twin” touted as a window fan,and the catoluge shows one on an end table and in a window hung with a cable that Westinghouse sold as an accessory  !! Westinghouse made em in a Super Big Twin mounted on a roll around stand.They had no handles so they are difficult to move around !! I love the one I have.Westinghouse states it moves 6000 cubic feet of air !! Pretty cool fans!! Tom Zapf has a Super Big Twin on the stand !!

Mine has a motor down. I'm pretty sure that it's just not getting any electric current. I'm hoping that hi lo switch isnt too hard to replace.If it is the motor, at least it's the forward facing one and not the reverse one. That one would be much harder to find. I'm pretty sure a mobileaire or other Riviera with a hex motor would be a direct replacement.

I'm pretty sure that someone painted the grills that dark blue. Not the worst thing in the world I suppose. If it's just spray paint it will wash right off with acetone

I'm betting that the switch is bad. How hard do you think it would be to find a replacement switch that would fit in there?  :light:

Funny coincidence! I have been wanting one of these for a couple years, since I firs joined up here. I finally found one last week, should be here Thursday. How hard are these to take apart? Mine has rusty grilles. I have several of the singles, front grille comes off easy, rear not so much...

Your in for a treat ...............taking apart is not so bad. But then there's putting it back together. More of a task then the break down.
