I am restoring my Emerson Jr non-oscillating fan.  I have the cage off, removed the screw in the back, and removed the screws holding the front plate.  I took a picture of the inside, and I have read (and others have given me a heads-up) about the reverse thread and to turn the fan blade clockwise to remove.  I turned the blade clockwise, but didn’t seem to do anything.  What am I missing?  Should I squirt some WD-40 on the inside the loosen it?

I believe the junior has a setscrew it is not thread on counter clockwise.. The picture looks like you've taken the motor apart so I'm at a loss as to what I'm looking at. take another picture but back away this time. there should be a set screw on the side of the fan blade holding it on.

Chad,

Your Jr doesn't have a gear box so will not have the threaded opening to insert a bolt for locking rotor.

You will need to lightly insert a screwdriver into a rear opening and angle downwards until you feel screwdriver make contact against metal. Choose one of the holes towards the top on back housing. That will hold stator while you unscrew the blade. You will know contact is made as you will feel it as blade is turned. May need to heat the backside shaft of hub to loosen the dried grease.
No set screw on this Emerson or most others.

Only Emersons with set screws are fans with double bearings.... B Jrs, Trojans, Northwind, DCs.
