I would like to offer for sale an Emerson Silver Swan 5460D - I could see the fan had been pretty well taken care of over its long life so I decided to clean it up. When I got it, the owner said it only ran on high speed and when I got it home I tried it out and it did. Removed the Bottom Cover and found a 5uf @ 370 VAC Capacitor had been installed so I installed a 1.5 uf @ 450 VAC and tried again with success. The original Switch had been replaced with a Carling Switch and it had a bad pole, so I replaced it. Once this was done, I tore it down and started cleaning. The results were pretty good in my opinion. Some Notes;
  • The paint is original, just cleaned of old grease and dirt and waxed. I did not touch up and areas with missing paint or scratches.
  • The Chrome Grill has some pitting on front but the back side chrome is not as good with pitting and corrosion. I cleaned it up but it's not as pretty as the front side.
  • As mentioned above, I replaced the Carling Switch it came with due to a bad pole. It has a new Carling Switch
  • I removed the old felt from the Bottom Cover, bead blasted and gave it a fresh coat of paint and then recovered with new felt
  • The following amps are from my Kill-O-Watt with a Variac set at 124 VAC High .58, Med .54, Low .52 
  • Cleaned the old grease from the Oscillator Housing, reassembled with new grease and shims.
  • Polished the Blade and applied 2 coats of wax.
  • Removed and replaced the Head Wire. All connections soldered and protected with Heat Shrink Tubing
  • New Power Cord and Plug installed.


SOLD



Thanks for looking!
John

Robert. People often reply to that question by saying " Whatever someone is willing to pay for it" which doesn't help you. The fan was listed for $350 which is a fair price for the fan considering it[size=s desireability and all the work that was put into it.

I RARELY buy anything outside the club that is listed as restored, refurbished etc. My rule of thumb is to take some pictures, ask what other members would do or bid and make my decision from there. The membership has never given me poor information. I’ve gone off and done my own thing regardless of advice as well. My theory has always been, even if I make a poor purchase I still had multiple valid pieces of advice. Sometimes, you just have to have something. Just don’t break the budget on a cool looking fan that is worth $5 when a really good one may be right around the corner.
