Here is a real oddball. The label on the top says it is a reversible window fan. It is not reversible nor is it a window fan. It does have 3 speeds but no reverse

You could always just turn it around in the window...? Maybe it was meant to be placed in front of a window and not in it.

Does anyone here on the forum have accurate information about why Bersted labeled this one the way they did? Maybe Tom Z. Can chime in?

I've got the 12" version of that fan, I think it was one I actually got from you at Fandango a few years ago, and mine I think is a little older than yours as mine doesn't have the "safety grille" on it and the "reversable" thing I think is just referring to the fact that its manually reversable (you physically flip the fan around in the window rather than flipping a switch). But I'm not sure, mine has a sticker on it as well but its very hard to read.

THERE MIGHT HAVE BEEN A HANGER BAR OR BRACKET THAT ALLOWED YOU TO TURN IT AROUND MANUALY AS TO CHANGE AIR FLOW DIRECTION... I HAVE NEVER SEEN THAT FAN WITH THE LABEL AND HAVE SEEN A ZILLION OF THEM S MAYBE THIS FAN CAME WITH A "KIT" FOR MOUNTING
IF YOU HAVE EVER SEEN A MID 50S' FRESHNDAIRE BOX OR ROLLABOUT MADE  BY CHELSEA, THEY SAY "AUTOMATIC" ON THEM AND CLEARLY HAVE NO TIMER OR THERMOSTAT JUST A SPEED SWITCH, SO MAYBE THOSE CAME WITH A SEPERATE PLUG IN TIMER AS A "KIT" TOO...WHO KNOWS.
