Some time ago, I found it necessary to replace the Levolier pull chain switch on a 3 wing Mobilaire. At the same time, I felt it was prudent to replace the tattered, brittle wiring "tail" coming out of the motor. I sat down with an ohmmeter and a rotary switch from another Mobilaire, and documented the internal wiring of the motor AND devised a way to use a 2 pole, center off toggle switch to replace the Levolier. This info is relevant to any Westinghouse fan using a two speed, single direction, shaded pole hex motor, including box and window fans. I'm happy to pass it along to you here.

I hope this is of help to all of the Westinghouse nuts out there.:D

Is that the 5 wire 2 speed shaded pole?

If anyone were to dissect a burned out hex motor and find out how many turns per pole and what gauge magnet wire is used on all 3 sets of windings, it may become certain to announce that a burned out hex motor can be rewound.
