Recently got an Emerson pedestal fan!!

Post by MaxC on Tue Aug 03, 2010 10:44 pm

Hello, I'm new to this forum that I found from a link from a youtuber's video description. So like the title said I just got the fan last Sunday from my aunt and uncle who owns a restaurant in downtown St. Louis. The building where the restaurant is about a 100 years old, it even as a old coal shoot in the basement. It was fish market store from I was told and we guess that's how the fan was there ever since they got the building in the 70's. I'm guess the fan is from the 1940's? The plate on the motor said it was a (Fan Duty Motor) with
Frame-S60 TX, Volts-110, Style-729 4617, Amps-3, RPM-1140, Cyc-60, HP-1/8, PH-1. Can anyone tell me more about this fan, year, history, and etc?? It was a very dirty, rusty and dusty fan when I got it and recently just started cleaning it. Any tips on maintenance? Not sure if the image I found on the net works but if it does it looks exactly like it but the blades. It has four, not three and not as stylish, more like a propeller. Also the switch broke, so when you plug it in it just turns on and the switch itself has been replaced before. So what kind of switch should I get?? I'm thinking of one of those chain ones since I'm planing to place it in my garage corner and won't able to reach back there after I place it there. It's very very heavy. Motor itself weighs 23.8 lbs! Any speeds on this thing like low, medium, and high? Switch broke and not original like I said earlier.
