    Antique Fan Repair

    Does anyone here know of someone who won't charge 150 bucks to repair an antique fan? It's just a 1910s 6-inch Polar Cub single-speed: no switch, no oscillator. I can't figure out why it won't power on. The wires inside look good, but I don't have the stuff to test for electrical failures.
    Have I not commanded thee? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

    Man! Either you are really cheap, or just like antiques! I have never heard of anybody having a working (or not) 100 year old fan in there house. I am sorry, I don't know anything about electricity. I am lucky that I can get the TV on and going! I hope you find help soon.

    have you opened it up? if so i use an ohm meter and check the power card to make sure there's not a break in the the plug or cord. just a guess.
