New to the forum. I picked up a old GE desk fan and would like some info, on it. Here are the numbers on the brass tag. TYPE UU  FORM AK or AR 1, Its hard to read the way its stamped. NO. N36013. SPEC. 272227 or 272223. Any info would be very helpful. I do need some parts if any are out there like the back bearing holder and oiler. Bottom slide speed switch and coil is missing also.I did see a fan on E-BAY like mine that stated it was a rear fan. Dont know if this is true or not.Thanks.

Form AK is 1930-31.   From the looks of your fan it would be better to replace it and start with a good one.   You'll have a lot of time and looking to find the missing and broken parts.   The non-oscillating GE fans are not so common as the oscillators of the same time period.   Maybe you can find a parts fan that has the parts you need.   It will be easy to quickly put more money into the fan than it is worth.    Probably not the news you were looking for though.  Check with antiquefanparts.com for parts.

Kinda what I figured. If I can’t come up with the parts I will get a better one. I have the time. Iam retired. Paid $20.00 for it. Should be worth that in parts. It does work on high speed. Thanks.
