I found this fan in Italy and it finally arrived today after a very long journey! I’ve never heard of AGIR or any fans from Denmark which is why I had to have it. Does anyone know anything about these or the company?

There is another!!! After some research on Google of Denmark and brushing up on my danish, I was able to find another model. Sadly these are the only pictures and still no substantial information. The search continues!!

The fan is running quite slow on all 3 speeds. Slow, slower, slowest. I have a step up converter for 110v to 220v which I’ve tested an it has an output of 220v. After talking with my friend, we’ve come to the conclusion its because we have 60Hz and the fan required 50Hz. Is there a way around this or a modification that can be done?

This is likely a universal motor. If you rectify the line voltage with a bridge rectifier, it will supply a more reliable voltage to the motor. Universal motors typically run smoother and a little faster on DC than they do on AC.DC only motors almost always have solid core field coil cores, while AC motors and AC/DC motors must have laminated cores.
