Hello all  ! Newbie here with a stator question. recently acquired an ge aou ( w1 ). Very nice fan but 2 of the 4 head wires have broken off in the stator. are any other stators interchangeable ? This is a 16". Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

If the stator is not obviously burnt, I would attempt to repair it. Pictures would help. Can you tell where the old wires broke off? If so, carefully perform delicate surgery to locate the end of the winding so a new lead can be attached.

I may be completely off base here but i know that some of these GE's about that time had four conductor wire installed from stator to coil but only actually two of the wires were being used with the other two just cut off.  It's like they had extra stock or something.  Do you have a choke coil in the base?  If so, then it's not likely needing the four conductor wires.  Most of the time, I've seen the unused two wires just cut off at one end or the other so that's why i mention it, just in case that's what you've got going on there.  Here's a couple prior threads discussing the finding of four conductor wire where only two of the wires are used with the other two cut clean off.

thanks for the reply- Definitely a 4 wire (no speed coil) for this fan. Looking to see if any other ge stators may be interchangeable to up my options

No they’re not. You need a 4 wire stator to match it. .

can you use a 2 wire and use the existing switch as a single speed ?
