Antique Fan Answered
Hi, I bought an old Hunter antique fan at a garage sale that I am trying to make work.
I should mention that I am a 65-year-old female and have never done this sort of thing before.
I have removed the cage and blade.
Through another source which has stopped helping me, I was able to unlock and de-grease the oil box.
I did rewire the main cord and I see that the fan does work. Yay!!!!
Now the problems start. There is a 3-wire cord that comes out of the motor head and snakes down to inside the base. This cord is majorly frayed. It is not like the 2-wire cord I fixed that plugged into the wall outlet.
I need some advice on how to replace the portion of the cord that shows the fray for both esthetic and safety reasons. It is wired inside the motor and I don't want to remove that attachment. I have enough wiggle room with the cord to add/replace a portion and snake it down to the base.
I will attach some pictures to try and clarify my ramblings.
