Bringing this to Aiken in April. Pictures tell the story. Asking $900, any issues (like a new bearing, etc) I will fix before delivery.

I want the experts to check this out before a final sale to insure proper operation. Seems like the bearings need attention sometimes.

This is one of my favorite cakes. Worth every penny of your price! Wish I were going to Aiken. I’d be sorely tempted to get a third 1900 cake. I love the original socket plug👍

This is a mystery, it was running fine then just stopped. I will check tomorrow for any obvious loose/bare wires. Even the plug could be loos for all I know

43458 is the serial number....it falls in the 1899 serial number range but is a 1900 because it doesn't have the grease cup on top of the front housing.

1899 serial numbers run 31001 to 44000
1900 serial numbers run 44001 to 70000

I think the GE pancake serial numbers are from a club survey and not official data from GE.  As so they are subject to errors.   I have an 1899 with serial number 78119 which, from what I found in the survey, is within the 1901 serial number range.
I also have a 1900 model with serial number 181508 which is in the 1904 number range.    Both this fan and the one above have all correct features for 1899 and 1900.   The 1900 one has the correct Type UI and Form letter for 1900 too as well as a 6/25/1901 patent date on the motor tag.    For whatever reason GE made some fans outside of the normal date ranges.   In dating most fans it's better to go by features of a model year and not the serial number.

1900 Cake Walk
Prior (recent) repair with plastic tape, switch was bypassed, also
missing insulation on backside of one terminal, allowing power to the motor housing?
Running, now how to fix the switch? Got a pro meter & a guy who knows how to use it (not me)
[size="4" style=""]Seee now the price will go up because  I am taking a day off actual paid work and screwing with a 120 year old fan. Plus a hired gun. Interested parties insist on it running like new. Why I wanted to bring to Darryl's this Spring. No Cake Walk for me.

Thanks, I see what is missing now, those 3 little jumper wires. The switch works, the fans works - - just no connection between the 2. Problem is I don't have a solder gun, shrink wrap, etc. to finish - - not on the road, where I am til the weekend.

0 pm here on the east coast. Will continue in the AM, I have proper wire , tools, meters to finish. The Rotor needs new varnish. This is what I call down the rabbit hole. I am paying a buddy a day's worth of labor to assist. That is another $ 100. cheap by the way. My time is free more or less, but I am pulling my electrician off this job to fix a fan. He ain't cheap. New price is $950 + shipping, I have other parties willing to pay that much but you were the first to show real interest. Shipping will be 2 day air + $1000 insurance. Less chance to be damaged. Now I need to re-varnish the rotor, see the rabbit hole.
