fan motor
I have a vintage W T Grant Thermostat reversable 3 speed window fan, that was in the attic. Worked great for 50 yrs. recently somehow a wire was sliced by the blades. All the wires were sodered in the motor and no motor information. Believe it is 1/6 hp with 1/2 inch shaft. I need to replace the motor and don't know what size to go with. It doesn't need to be reversable or variable speed, but does need the thermostat
