I am starting the Vornado 28c1 revival. I checked the fan motor wiring it direct. Works good. But the speed control is not wired up and I have no schematics. Anyone have a picture of the wiring? Thanks in advance.

Thanks, does anyone have a picture of the wiring on one of these fans? Also can I get someone to explain to me why kilowatt testing an older fan is a good thing to do?

Just follow Johns schematic.   The kill a watt shows running amps. Comparing that to a motor tag data or known good fan can tell you if the fan has a good motor if it’s drawing what it should.
