i got a westinghouse lively aire 12 inch with metal blades for 15$, bearings in good shape and oscullator is fine, but the varnish is all gone from the windings and the thing smokes after like 10 seconds, is there any way t save the windings or does anybody have a stator for sale?

Clear Insulating Varnish on Amazon

A lot of members use the red color stuff, but I like the clear myself.

If a stator’s insulation has been compromised by overheating it, it generally can’t be fixed by painting on or spraying on varnish.  If there are areas where the insulation is burnt off and wires are touching, you can’t make them “untouch” and all you’ll do is seal the shorted area together.  

You likely need a new stator if it smokes.

You can create an ad for a new stator in the bst section. A parts fan is also an option, if no stator alone is available.
