Do you want to get rid of your old ceiling fan?

 

Did you just buy a house or business and going to remodel and upgrade the ceiling fan or fans? or just want to upgrade the ceiling fan or fans? well in any case, instead of throwing them out in the garbage or donating them to a thrift shop, Sell them and make some money. I'm interested in buying ceiling fans from the 70s and 80s era. Just send me pictures if possible. If you can't send pictures, I would need info about the ceiling fan, such as make and model number. Even the make and model would be hard to identify not unless it's on this site or was a common ceiling fan, there are too many different makes and models. There are pictures of different types of ceiling fans on this page, one of them will describe the fan you have. Please contact me if you have any ceiling fans that you want to get rid of.

 

Disclaimer

 

If you have a ceiling fan from the 70s and 80s era, you have not hit a goldmine. Currently there is little or no market value for used or NOS ceiling fans, other than genuine antiques (pre 1950s) and the occasional Hunter or Casablanca ceiling fan. 70's and 80's ceiling fans tend to linger unwanted in reused stores. If you're expecting hundreds or even thousands of dollars please refrain from even inquiring. If you have one or more ceiling fans and are interested in selling at a reasonable price, contact me.

 

 

Information About Ceiling Fans

 

Here you will see pictures of different types of ceiling fans and parts with information.

 

 

This is a standard type of ceiling fan with the motor in a housing and is very common, and still made today, of course a little different than the one in the picture. Ceiling fans made today, the motor housing is much smaller and less chunky. You might have one of these. Not all standard type of ceiling fans look exactly like this one. The vent holes, blades, and/or canopy might be different. Also might have five paddles (Blades) instead of four, and the color of the ceiling fan might be different. The side band part of the motor housing also could have a design.

 

Standard GE Vent Ceiling fan

 

This is a spinner ceiling fan, meaning there is no housing around the motor. This one has a lower canopy and a switch housing. The capacitor is in the lower canopy. Manufacturers started doing away with lower canopies by putting the capacitor in the switch housing on spinner ceiling fans, also was the time when capacitors were being made much smaller so they could fit in the switch housing.

 

Spinner Ceiling Fan With Lower Canopy And Switch Housing

Spinner Ceiling Fan With Switch Housing

 

This is a spinner ceiling fan, meaning there is no housing around the motor. This one has a lower canopy and no switch housing. Instead there is a nut. The nut can be unscrewed to add a light kit. Spinner ceiling fans were also made without this option, which means no nut, switch housing or any hole on bottom part of the motor.

Spinner Ceiling Fan

 

This is a spinner three metal blade ceiling fan, meaning there is no housing around the motor. This one has a lower canopy. Most industrial ceiling fans do not have a switch housing, they do exist, but not as common. Believe it or not, I'm interested in old three metal blade industrial ceiling fans. Back in the 70s and 80s, metal blade ceiling fans were very common in homes. All metal blade ceiling fans are spinner ceiling fans, If not, I've never seen one that wasn't. Metal blade ceiling fans today are known as industrial ceiling fans.
