I recently had the good fortune to pick up this Victor ceiling mount fan and I have a couple of questions.  The motor runs strong and the deflector spins freely, but doesn't spin when the fan in running.  It might make a turn or two then it just stops.  What do I need to do to make the deflector spin when the fan is running?  Or is it supposed to?  Also, I am planning to restore this fan, but how do you take the blade off?  I don't see a set screw anywhere holding it on.  I appreciate any information I can get.

On my Victor breezespreader, it takes a loosening of that thumb-nut adjuster in the middle....too tight and the spreader won't spin...too loose and the spreader spins too fast.  I also had to do some lube on the spindle that supports the spreader for best results.  Still takes a 'push' sometimes to get it operating correctly.  My $.02 :D

 The blade hub is threaded and screws onto/off of the rotor shaft like an Emerson I'm almost certain.. Good luck , great find.

Thanks for the replies.

Will, I have tightened it and loosened it and it seem to work the same either way.  I haven't tried lubing it, though.  I will try that.

Geoff, I would have never guessed it was a screw on hub.  I will give that a try.
