Hi,



I am restoring a Crosley heater and fan. Attached is my drawing. It is a bit odd in that the motor return is through part of the element. Here is my thinking
The motor represents a  high impedance relative to the heating element. In theory the fan would turn on but the branch would not provide enough current to provide heating in the lower leg of the element. So the fan could be used for cooling.
What do you think is the proper operation?

When it is in heater mode, the fan gets reduced voltage to slow down motor and air flow.
When it is in fan mode, the fan gets full voltage for faster motor and more cooling air.
Happy Fanning/Heating!

Nice drawing. The way I interpret it, you have a thermostatically controlled double pole single throw switch, open on temperature rise, with no provision for fan only. The switch brings on the fan and element on at the same time. When the element is cool, the fan should run a bit faster and as the element heats, it's resistance goes up, thereby causing the fan to slow. That seems to be what the drawing depicts, but some details may be missing?

Hi,The ad would lead you to believe it is only for heat. The drawing is made from inspection. There are some sellers who say that it had a cooling function too but I am not so sure. The thermostat seems to control only the heating elements.
