I picked this on up because the paint was in good condition and I have not seen one with a turquoise paint job and plastic blade to match. Factory paint and a polish up and it looks good.

Good thing you didn’t open up the clam shells around the motor. This fan can be a pain in the posterior to reassemble!!

I had the fan completely apart. Re-greased the oscillator and oiled the motor and replaced the wicks. I had an issue reassembling but it was the wicks were too long and held up the bearings just enough to cause issues. Once I cut the wicks down its running strong. My big issue is the placement of the screws. They are a pain to put back.
