Robert Kennedy Posted December 12, 2022 Share Posted December 12, 2022 I'm still new to this fan collecting and refurbishing. I bought a mid 30's 73646 and was told all it needed was rewiring the head. I took the fan head assembly off and found 3 good wires to start my rewiring effort. One wire was isolated by itself and the other two were almost together. I guess I assumed the single wire went to the single wire on top of the 3 speed selector and the other two were for the ground and positive posts. I also replaced the electrical plug in cord while everything was apart. When I got everything soldered and heat wrapped and plugged it in the motor only hums a bit and does not spin the rod for the blades. Does this mean the windings or stator is bad. I'm not an electrician so I don't know how to proceed in checking this out. Did I wire the head correctly? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
