GE Kidney fans are beautiful, quiet, and easy to use. However they're one of the least robust fans that GE ever made. Nearly any kidney fan in unrestored condition will have a broken gear box. Even if your kidney fan doesn't have a broken gearbox, I still recommend this repair because its only a matter of time!
The key to repairing a kidney gear box is to make sure that all the broken pieces exist. If the pieces are missing, unfortunately you may be out of luck as these gearboxes have not been reproduced by anyone for over a year now. To complete this repair you will need to fabricate a steel reinforcing flange such as that shown below. If you would like to purchase one of these parts from White Glove Fans, please contact us.
