I’m so glad to have found this page and am looking for some help and advice. I have an Emerson 77648-SP that I can’t find any information or parts for online. It has worked great for the two years I have had it after a detailed cleaning but recently it stopped spinning the blades. I cleaned out the gear box and put new grease inside. In the one picture is a circled red gear that is plastic. I need help finding this replacement. It’s the primary gear for the occultation of the fan and is severely worn down. I also need some help figuring out why the fan seems to no longer have power to spin the blades. The rest of the gears are in good condition and it no longer has the hard, old, and slightly solid grease inside. Electrical work isn’t my strong suit, so can someone dumb that down for me if you believe it has to do with the electrical side of the motor.

Will it start up if you manually give the blades a good spin while turning it on? If so, the problem could be the capacitor.

On speed 1, yes but will slow down eventually. Speed 2 and 3 won’t keep the blades turning at all.

Is speed 1 high speed, (the speed that bypasses the speed coil)? When you spin the blades by hand (with the fan off) does it feel kind of gummed up, or does it spin freely?

I believe speed 1 is high speed. And it spins freely when the fan is off.

Yes. Ebay is best. 

2.5 uf cap rated 300-500 VAC in a 16" Emerson.

I have the part but can seem to get the fan disassembled. How do I get the blades off?

To replace the capacitor, you may want to look inside the base of the fan before removing the blade.

No need to remove blade, just the base plate

Even Emerson dumbed down their fans by the 50s & used junk materials, nice fans but cheaper.

The Capacitor will look like a "sardine can" as below, just 2 wires

New solid state versions
