70" Hunter "stockbridge" (China) 100 RPM top speed, low 29 RPM, # of poles?

I thought most modern ceiling fans were ~220 RPM with 24 poles...
What is this thing?

I post this link because Levi can determine motor poles by looking at pictures!

(If I had a picture of the inside of the motor housing, I could have counted the poles myself)

What it could have is a DC motor. Many of these new ceiling fans are equipped with those from what I've seen on YouTube.

I meant I just wanted to see what the fan looked like, you don't need to be rude about it!

I am really happy with the 70" Hunter ceiling fan. (Stockbridge model)
I got wall switches for fan and lamp, and decided to try a "de-hummer" speed control.
It switches in capacitors to give you four speeds + off.
I had been using the fan pull chain, but was afraid I would be wearing it out!
The capacitor switched de-hummer control is a perfect design match for this fan.
Lowest speed is 27 RPM which works perfect for barely stirring the air to prevent stratification.
You can find these controls on eBay, etc. for ~ $10.

Nice write up John! I wish I was talented enough to count poles from a stock photo. Enjoy your new fan.
